This is a rare promotional badge for The Smith's first single 'Hand in Glove.'

 

The artwork on the album sleeve features an unknown male model photographed by Jim French, taken from Margaret Walters' book 'The Nude Male.'  The homoerotic undertones caused feelings of 'unease' and 'outrage' at the time.

 

The badge image features the cropped and rotated outline of the hand of the male model. The design is incredibly simple in a brown and white colourway.
