can any body help with old badge / pin?

hi, i hope im not being a bother but i wondered if anyone could identify a badge / pin i have found? i dont know who else to ask and i have googled it with no success. i at first thought it was an old victorian football badge....it is a gold coloured bar brooch / pin with a black enameled shield in the middle. on the black shield is gold letters....large "V", medium "F" (inside the V) and a small wrapped around "C" (around the F). on the back is written K G LUKE MELB.
i thought it had something to do with victorian football but all that comes up on google is VFA / VFL......no VFC. anyone have any clues?

[quote=Dale61]K.G. Luke was a private mint that made 1956 Olympic Games medals for the Numismatic Association of Victoria, as well as a considerable number of other medals and trophies. It operated at least between 1937 and 1974, according to medals illustrated in Carlisle's Australian Commemorative Medals and Medalets.

So, all that's needed now is to find out what the letters on the front represent.

Be nice to get a look at it.
Is there some way it can be shown here in colour ?
I have a contact here in Ballarat who has one of the best collections of football & sporting badges in Australia.
I am sure he could help.
