Mining Lamps, Badges & Ephemra
Start a New Topic 

I am listing some National Union of Mineworkers and ASLEF/RMT 84/5 strike badges and some 20th and 25th Anniversary of the strike badges for sale on E-Bay. Some of these are quite hard to get hold of and there are some complete sets of colour variations.
For anyone who collects Miners Strike badges, these are well worth considering adding to the original 84/5 strike badge collections.
Although they are not all listed in Brians book at the present, they could well be in the follow up suppliments.
In the meantime I have the list of these badges issued, which is taken from the Trades Union Badge Collectors Guide.
If anyone wants a copy of the Twinning NUM/ASLEF/RMT badge issues, E-Mail me and I will send you a copy against which to collect.
