Oh
I’d also like to share this as well, all my badges which have a finish applied are kept in Perspex specimen boxes !
I think this would help to protect conditions and if you want to look at or move around then you do not need to touch so therefore reducing unnecessary damage !

Hi Chay,

I don’t see anything wrong with the eagle’s head myself. Outstanding condition for a zinc badge.

If all of your badges are in specimen boxes your collection must bulk up pretty quickly!

Best regards,

Haha thank you Norm,
I keep ordering them boxes in 12s and 24s I’m obsessed with specimens : )))))
I file them away in Bisley drawers

Kind regards Chay

Very nicely organized! In that case, your warehouse must be filling up quickly!

Best regards,

Wish I had the room to store my collection the same way . Mind you changing partners soon and my new gal is not only fine with me putting some of it in frames she actually bought me my JFS destroyer badge as a gift !

advantage of our being good friends for years before we agreed to get together .
As soon as I sort the glitch out I can start showing you some of my stuff for appraisal

Kind regards Chay

These JFS Destroyer badges have been the subject of many fakes but this is a really fine original.

I used to have one myself.


Cheers,Martin.

Thank's Chay ,

terrible photo because the super crisp close up taken on my new camera won't upload . Frustrating but as soon as I'v figured it out I'd like your opinion on a couple of minesweeper badges I'm thinking of parting with . I'll post them soon .

Best regards , Rob

Ok Rob,
I look forward to it!
The key with photos is lighting because the camera will only pick up what it can see.

Kind regards Chay
