    UKDFD has said its from

    There is a BOWKER MOTOR Co listed in the UK, which was established in 1919, and would appear to still be active, and two listed in the 'phone book living in Essex.

    seems a bit late on a georgain coin do you think?

    Thing is, if its listed on a Geo coin in the USA, does not mean its not UK origin.
