Headbadges

 

 

Over the years the Centurion Logo has changed it is possible to help narrow down the year of the Centurion.

 

For the headbadge there are some major changes in the Headbadges. Up til 1982 they were metal badges, with pre 1979 had a star effect shaped badge and then they went to a Metal round badge. In 1983 they went to a decal.
