    I suspect they went on each side of the hood (bonnet), which would amount to two per truck.

    I think there must be more than one badge as stupak also has one in an earlier post. Although the distance between my badge and the one that was dug up was only 100 miles! Who knows? But my badge looks brand new, it must have been wrapped in cotton wool.

    In the 2002 forum posts, that badge was found while digging in a garden in Middlesex. Same one or are there two now?

    Here is the framed badge, it would be a shame to put it on the back of a truck if I could find one, or even hang it up in the garage.
    I work for a large classic car and transport museum here in Devon, UK and nobody has heard of one! So the chase is on!
    will keep you posted should a truck surface!

    Keep us all posted if you do find something there.

    It appears larger vintage commercial vehicles have a huge following in England, and chances are, one could still be kicking around somewhere.

    My thoughts about the Panther name goes to 600 & 650 cc one-barrel bikes...
    & if I had a badge like THAT it would be over my bed until I got the vehicle for it!

    Before today, I've always associated the Panther with Paragon Motors….

    Impressive looking badge! Thanks for posting a photo of it!!

    What will be better yet, will be to find a 3-5 tonner UK-market Stude truck to affix it to!

    Thanks to all for their input, especially to Craig for the article on Studebaker trucks in the U.K which answered my question! Photo of the badge is hopefully attached, it will now be framed and hung on my garage wall with the info.
    Amazing the power of the internet and a great website!
