Issued in 1907 for the Perak Motor Union which was the earliest motoring body in this country. Truly a museum piece which shows the beginning of the country's motoring history. There are only 4 known surviving examples of such RAC Associate badges issued to the FMS states. Two are in the hands of a Dutch collector and one belongs to a doctor in Ipoh but I believe mine is the only one issued to Perak. The others were issued to Selangor.


Badge is made of cast iron and is heavy. Weight is approx 360 gm. Size is approx 13 cm by 10 cm.
