The classic green & yellow badge 1963-1968 & 1970-1974
This is the "classic" Lotus badge. Essentially the same as the original, it is slightly more domed (although this is hard to see), the letters are larger and flush with the surface of the coloured enamel. For comparison with the original, the letter T is 7.5mm high with a stroke width of ~1.7mm.
It was probably introduced at the start of Elan (Type 26) production, and was used until the first appearance of the black & silver badge. It then reappeared in middle of 1970 until once more replaced by the black & silver in 1974.
New badges are still available under part number X026B0269Z.
