olympic foil badgeMany thanks to Carl Pettman for sending us this picture of an adhesive foil type badge that was on a 60's kit he recently purchased. First time we have ever seen one of these - were these used if there were no metal badges left?
cufflinksPictured here are a pair of Olympic cufflinks in good condition.

These are listed in the catalogues of the 1960's and I doubt there can be many left now!

early discus badgeWhen the first Discus snare drums were launched the shells were only 3.5 inches deep which made it difficult to fit a badge so a rubber stamp (the same as the real badge) was put inside the shell.
