It says: Redex for Reliability.
I wish this one still had it's original colours on it. It has been hand painted.
It looks like it's copper.
Maybe it was just pressed and never had any colour.
Anyone ever seen another one?

I'm assuming mid 50s based on the other one but no doubt made over a period of time....the entrant ones are easier because they appear to have the year on them..and the Redex trial seems to have been 53 to 55 and then became the Ampol trial

Agree, most likely 50’s.
I’ve got a similarly styled competitor badge from 1953 on my FX

The one dirdsme found looks like it.
Looks like they were just the original copper with paint only in the letters and Australia and the centre cross, with a clear coat over the top.
And, No, I didn't paint it Al.
This doesn't have "Competetor" on it, so it might have been A Redex giveaway.
It came from the same place as the other two.
I might carefully try and remove the paint.
