Help: Can't find the Manchester Badges.
« on: February 19, 2014, 12:26:11 PM »
Last year I found a link to all the Manchester Cap Badges, but now, for some reason the only badges I can bring up are the VB's and the shoulder titles, (eg 24th Type).
If anyone can give me the link again, I would be grateful.

Wombat,
James.

Hi James

The web site you are on about no longer exists.


But
I'm in the process of loading all the pictures of the badges

here.

I'll do them as soon as I can.

Hello Chris,

Yes, I would particularly like to see an original 6th VB. Over my many years of collecting to the Manchester's, (Oldham), I have become some-what of an expert in 6th VB Repro's! I even have a repro with a slide stamped Gaunt's of London.
It would be nice to own an original, but I'll settle for a good photo.

Thanks for asking,
James.

Sadly the photo I posted earlier was a Repro
but as I'm not an expert I did not realize.

The first photo below is taken from the main site

The second one is the one I posted earlier
a bit of difference :)

Timberman,

Thanks for taking the time and trouble to show the two badges for comparison.
I think you really need to be able to see and handle the badge before making a decision. I bought my first one in the 70's and I acquired  another a couple of weeks ago, making four in all. That's about one every ten years, so I wouldn't say I was being rash, or buying in haste, yet I have still managed to end up with 4 repro's ::) :'(

Thanks again,
James.

Hello Timberman,

Thanks for the links, I have bookmarked both but I think I have one of them obviously from the same source.

Thanks again,
James.
