Clacton 1966

Showing a seagull on a blue field this a nice simple badge that works well by breaking the edges of the frame. Made by Reeves this badge is in good condition but sadly the clasp has been squashed.

2nd Week

Stop the presses. I have a new badge!

This is actually a benchmark acquisition for me as it partly completes a section. I say partly as there are two known colour variations for second week badges. However with this badge I now have a representation of all versions of the 2nd week run.

In stunning condition I am rather pleased with this one.

Its been a while since I have added to the blog, mainly because the collection isn't actively growing. I am looking at a few nibbles which, if successful, will make it to the blog. Beyond that the financial constraints and increasing pricetags on the rarer badges are precluding any serious activity on the badge front at the moment. A shame really as the collection is pretty sweet so far! Any tips on badges are more than welcome though... I will have to scour my pockets for change.
