Nice pictures of the badge.  On my list of things to add to my collection.  Too bad they aren't named although I've seen a few for sale with provenance.  Thanks showing them and for your comments.

Hi Gordon,

Yes it took me a while till i got the Set

The prices of them doubled for the last 1-2 years i was lucky to get them earlier

Yes, I have seen few named ones  single or in a Grouping It could have been nice to have one named. Nevertheless,

My Goal was to get the Set of three. My major interest in collecting is in other areas.

I simply wanted to get Baronet Badge I was lucky to get one named (see my other topic) and The Set of the three models of the Knight badge I am still chasing a miniature of the first and/or second model


Hi Marcon1 Thank you for the additional information.


I hope any of the members, who has Named Badges will list them  on the forum


Here are more pictures of the miniature

    • 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.
