I'd say Star Twin.
If I'm right, you've got something pretty rare.

Probably a pattern replacement. Star Twin badges should have "Star Twin" on them.
Trev.

Do you have pics of star twin badges Trev. These look fairly old so I wonder what they are from.

Agree with Trev, they are pattern or modified Star Twin badges
 Third pic on this post shows an original one:

I think our member "mrshells" has a picture of one of these badges as his home or "avatar" picture.

Interesting, I never heard of Star Twin pattern badges, but Trev is right, it should have "Star Twin" on it instead of "England".
Maybe some export-only version?

I've seen pattern ones turn up on ebay from time to time, never with "England" on mind!

 Hi Terry,

 Do they look hand painted, or is it just the photos? If you lived here in the states, I would say some hippy got hold of them in '68. An airbrush, a little testers modelpaint a viola! A beautiful set of star twin badges turned to junk.

 I could be wrong too.
