There are four additional stars one either side his head and one either side the shield on his breast. The eagle carries a motto ribbon in his beak, and olive branches and arrows in his talons.  At the bottom of the design is a bow of ribbon inscribed "T. BADDELEY HANLEY STAFFSHIRE". Thomas Baddeley was listed in 1800 as engraver & black printer in Hanley.
