Pssst... Wanna See Some Badges?''We DO need to show you some stinkin' badges!'' says Collectors Weekly. So they added a Vintage BADGES section.
It's a great addition to their site, with articles, links to info resources and collector groups and clubs, and of course the great photo gallery of ebay listings which show you all the badges sorted by highest bids, most watchers, or COMPLETED. Super helpful in researching your items, and to add to your collection.
We have a small collection of antique badges, with the focus on Ohio Chauffeur badges, and whatever Lima Ohio badges we can find.
Here's a few fuzzy snapshots - there are more badges somewhere in the house, but where, oh where?
We also collect bicycle badges.
On the Collectors Weekly BADGES page, you can sort by a few different sub-categories, too. You can also select medals, pins, car badges.
But not BICYCLE badges -- yet... Soon, I hope.
