Following on from the previous post I have been tracking Margate artefacts on ebay. Taking a look at badges it is noticeable how highly collectible Margate Butlins badges are, as to whether this is because the badges are popular because the appeal is Margate or Butlins I do not know. Either way compared to other Margate badges they do fetch a tidy sum of which I am know recording on a data base of Margate artefacts for the Margate Historical Society.
Pictures above are badges from 1960, the pink ball badge recently sold on ebay for £20.99. the red ball badge sold for £10.79 and the yellow shell sold for £30.76.
