Well so far I have managed to collect some of the originals... the trick is to have some patience, because they only show up on ebay now and then. If you really wish to collect these then best is to talk a bit with some older collectors, since most have some in their collection.

It would be nice if someone wants to make an overview of these, because I think most of us have only seen half of much less of what is out there!

Unfortunately I don't know any vintage collectors (or any for that matter)

I would like to start compiling a list of buttons/pins/badges for my own personal use or for others. If anyone would PM or e-mail me at tom.bombadilo@gmail.com I would be very indebted.

Thank you for your reply!
(I am just extra excited, so it seems like it is taking ages to get a reply)

Hi Tom (and Beren of course),

the difficulty (and fun part!) of collecting vintage pinbacks/buttons/badges is that the machines for making them were cheap, so no matter how many you think you have found, there are always more! (Similar to Parmastahir's calendar collecting quest - there are fan calendars with print runs in the single digits). I have a bunch that I have accumulated over the years, many need to be photographed and added to the Collector's Guide - if you have more buttons you have found (even just pictures online) send me what you can and I will add them to the Guide!

The ones I was offering here were made by an independent store in New York City back in the sixties. I got a bunch of them from the person who inherited a huge box full of buttons that were found in an attic. The condition is not great at all (lots of rust stains) but they are still fun and a good start to a budding collection.

I will try to add a few more images to the Buttons page of the Guide today.

Deagol, I still owe you your buttons! Beren and Tom, do you want some too?
