Caithness ? Edinburgh S.I.E.C. 1979

Looks Caithness or possibly even Selkirk?
Not sure about the Edinburgh S.I.E.C. google brings up nothing.
Thanks for looking.

Chris

Looks like a Caithness Myriad (red) to me - first issued in 1978.
No idea about SIEC, though.

Hi.

I suspect SIEC stands for Scottish Industrial Estates Corporation.  They were active in 1979, trying to attract overseas investment to Scotland. My guess is that it was a promotional gift.
