I'd like to start a collection of pin on enamel badges - Obviously I'm after paddler related ones.

Do you have any or know of any that are available?

I'll happily pay a reasonable price and cover postage etc etc... Though I would prefer to handle payments via Paypal if possible.

Hi Eddy, I too have a passion for collecting ship pin badges. I collect particularly paddlers followed by steam ships and shipping company house flags. Working on WAVERLEY and BALMORAL I am in a good position to swap with fellow enthusiasts. I will be able to let you have a Waverley badge shortly (When I find my spare one) and a Balmoral.
On an earlier post I asked if anyone was interested in swapping model boat club sticker badges (they look great on model boxes) for Darlington model boat club badges. This request still holds good and also includes pin badges as a swap for Waverley and balmoral badges. I also collect beer pump plates f or any brand of beer depicting a maritime subject. (these are the badges that are put on the front of beer pump handles in pubs). I have 42 so far though none feature paddlers. I got my latest only yesterday while Eddy was force feeding me liquid lunch. It is from a small brrewery whos ales all feature TITANIC. Yesterdays was called "Titanics iceberg" and is very tasty. (We are a strange lot arent we). We could get a good "string" going on this subject! Regards walter.

Thanks Walter, much appreciated....

Sadly it seems (so far) that it's only you and I that have an interest in collecting/swapping pin badges and club stickers :(

I'd certainly be very interested in anything you have if youd like to part with them Alistair?

I have a pin badge with Canberra and Echuca written on it.

I also have a pin badge of the Emmylou, it's a small one and it gold. But that resides on my jacket.

Don't think I have any other paddler ones. Although I know they put different boats on them from year to year.

Oh I have a flashing magnet badge from the port. The small LED's flash...and instead of a dangerous pin it attaches by magnet.

I'm afraid I won't be able to give them up though.

If you see any pin badges on your travels, remember my request Sean... As I said, I'm perfectly happy to pay for them as long as they aren't too expensive.

I've been keeping an eye on Ebay for them for the last few days, but haven't seen anything yet.... Please give me a heads-up if you spot any Mick!

If you happen to stumble across them I'd still be interested Alistair, so please keep it in mind...
