Classic Coffer Badge

A Manchester City badge made by Coffer from the 1970's. I was looking for a history of this firm, but only found this on Google answers......

Coffer Sports did not manufacture badges. They commissioned them from
firms in Birmingham's jewellery quarter and distributed them to
traders across the counntry. I dealt with Coffers from 1972 to the
early 1980s. The last contact I had with them was a conversation with
Malcolm Coffer on Wembley Way before the FA Cup Final of 1985, but by
that time the firm had gone into liquidation. Some of the dies were
sold and used by other people to make badges, usually in soft enamel.
