Thank you, Mark !
Jo: Another great badge! Those markings are really nice indeed... pretty big for a "standard"/full-size RZM-era badge as well... Lovely obverse, still very very much in the transitional vein -- I'm guessing this would be an early rzm badge judging by the still very distinct and characteristic design (plus the fact that this maker lost his license very early on in this era, of course), before the conformity of the RZM and all truly set in.

Nice Mark, i would recommend cleaning it, that green span is only going to get worse, and jump onto all your other pins and eat them up. After that, your kids, your wife, and who knows what else it will eat.
I would personally do the following. Take a few ear buds, dip them in olive oil, and gently rub away. I did this with a N.E.R badge a year or so ago that was in shocking condition, but as you`ll see from the before/after pics, it came out alright. Olive oil and window cleaner are your best friends, and if they are not, then they want to be. The Deschler attachment i put on on purpose so you could see straight away that it had been repaired, in case you were wondering.

Good idea Jo. It'll be difficult since I haven't cleaned a single badge yet, leaving them in their historical condition. But, I cannot accept green flesh-eating amoeba dysentery growing in the house. I do want to keep the kids safe, afterall
And thanks, glad you like the badge.

Thank you as always Davo! Hope santa drops a Party badge in the mail for ya.
Jo, thanks again. I didn't realize the much would come off from a cleaning, so thanks for the advise. The photos...finally found a program I can almost use. Luckily, there's a teenager around to help I'll take the first place ribbon, especially from the black sheep, his pics aren't so bad either.
