Thank you, Jeremy! The problem with many of the pinbacks are the unusual way (at least to my Tengwar understanding) many of them are spelled. The first yellow pinback actually translates Habbbits with an a and 3 b's. That's what makes the second word so difficult to figure out. It's hard to believe there is not SOME lonely website out there with info on these pins. Perhaps I should start one as I now own some 15 of them. Here are a few others: The last one is Frodo Lives, a very popular one, which I have not been able to secure ...

Hello all, what a great Tolkien Collecting site! I collect Tolkien pinbacks from the 60’s – specifically the elvish tengwar pins and was wondering if anyone knew of ANY resource on the web or otherwise that translated the messages on these pins: Frodo lives, Go Go Gandalf, etc, but I also own some very obscure elvish pins. Some are embedded below. Any help would be most appreciated!

The first one in particular is VERY difficult to translate. The first word is Hobbits, but the second line makes no sense. Hobinu? Hobinow? Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Joe
