Nice badge, but not bakelite, which does not melt, but plastic, which does.

This maker made many plastic badges.

Hi Pete

Thanks for the info, am a newbe to this field so am bound to make mistakes. You have one major collection by the way, was a pleasure to check out the pictures you posted.

After seeing your posting it peaked my interest in them, did not realise there was such a varied variety of them around.

Is this type of badge rare?

Regards

Paul

Hi Paul,

This SA tinnie is not very rare, but SA tinnies are collected as a field of their own, (as are HJ) so some command a higher price (see Claymores)

Tinnies are rising in price, but don't get stung by paying too much for the common ones (although I guess you may not know the common ones)

You have one, only another 12.500+++ to go!!

Regards,

Pete

Hi Pete

Oh is that all, not many then hehe. Yes, i agree Claymore has got an amazing collection. Yes you are right for a second time when you say whats comman or not, i have no idea at all, but am hoping that will change in time. I realise i should not ask this but would it be possible to give me a rough idea of what its worth? As its my first just wonder if i was ripped or not

Hi Pete

Thanks for the scan will keep them in mind when looking, am hoping my sister will have a look for me when she is in Germany next month. Have mailed some friends over there and they tell me they can be found in flea markets.

Regards

...a very nice badge to begin with Paul...

...it also comes in a cream colour instead of the silver....I've no idea why though...

...plastic 'tinnies' are great to collect as they usually all appear to have just been made that day...usually very good condition and with great colours...

...some people collect every tinnie that comes their way, some collect one field (ahem! = SA anyone ?)....and them some stick with a particular 'material'....

...that's the 'happy, happy, joy, joy' part of collecting tinnies!

...oh, and of course, being able to 'show-off' a bit here :rolleyes:

Have now added a few more to my meager collection, some HJ and Gua.

Managed to locate a cream version of the one mentioned above, so will post some pictures when it arrives.

Each time i check the web sites there are more that catch my eye, have thought about certain types to specialise in but i see one i like and that idea goes out of the window.

Have been pointed in the right direction to some good sites (Thanks Ian) over in Germany, so hopefully my small collection will continue to grow.

Try to find the 2 volume set of reference books by Reinhard Tieste. They are a tremendous source of information. You will never tire of looking thru them. He has a unique numbering system that makes things a lot easier for us all.You can get a good sence of the value of tinnies also as he lists prices in Euros.They are a little pricey although still well worth it in my opinion.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
