I was given, what appears to be an old MG Car Club Badge and would like to try and date when it was manufactured. On the second picture the address for: Gladman & Norman is 51-53 Tenby St, North Birmingham. Any ideas?

This is the Car Club, not the Owners Club. The Car Club was founded and supported by the MG Car Company.

However, no idea on the date of the badge.

Cheers

Dave

Thank you David for catching my mistake. I have corrected both the heading and my question.

That style is from the mid-80s (I'm not sure when it started but it's identical to the one I purchased in 1989.)

I cant help dating your badge but I can tell you the MG CAR CLUB was founded in 1930 and the head office to this day is at Kimber House , Abingdon, Oxfordshire, UK

I’m leaning towards agreeing with you Steve as the address on the back is the current location Of Gladman & Norman. I believe older versions of this badge have their Spencer Street address on the back.
