Back of Button

R.G.C. - This item is one of my favourite ‘unknowns’ and consists of a uniform type in copper gilt (23mm) with raised designs, being a burnished rim and on lined background the central motif showing a bramble pattern ball on the very edge of the hole; the old adage Never Up Never In appears at the base and the enigmatic R.G.C. around the top edge. The reverse is marked Firmin & Sons London 153 Strand. The gilding is of very high quality on both sides and I date the item to c1890-1900.

Information is from an article in "The British Golf Collectors Society" written by Dixon Pickup.
