Art piqued my interest and as he notes, these are not expensive. In no particular order except as I acquire them and get around to posting them.

The nice part about this collecting topic is that most items have been less than $25, many less than $10 for rather limited issue medals.

Nice medals and badges. I really don't understand why more people don't collect these items. The artistry is wonderful and they are relatively inexpensive.

Thank you. I just picked up another 11 badges from the Paul Kagin collection (his badges from ANA conventions). One of these days, I'll get them photographed and posted. I'm behind because of another writing project.

Two Klaif badges and the first Kagin badge (no name tag).

The 1952 New York Convention badge had a blue ribbon. Committee ribbons added the additional yellow ribbon as seen here with the word COMMITTEE on it. Whitehead and Haog produced the badges. Approximately 450 regular badges and 30 committee badges. The Hosch catalog of ANA badges and medals does not record the OFFICIAL's badge as pictured here.

The ANA badges and medals make for a very nice collection specialty in this area. There is a bunch of information about the various medals in the back issues of the Numismatist. Takes a bit of work but you can get tons of interesting stuff including the mintages, designers, different sets they were issued in and such. It's a fun part of the hobby.

I haven't kept this thread fully up to date and I've been concentrating on other purchases, but I did add this medal in the past week:

 

974494.jpg

 

His friends arranged the design and production of the medal and the ANA board approved its production while he was out of the country. The medal was struck in silver and bronze (mintage unknown) and one in gold presented to Moritz Wormser. J.M. Swanson of New Jersey designed the medal and executed a fantastic portrait. Wormser's friends covered the costs of producing the medal. It was struck by Medallic Art Co. Bronze medals sold for $2.50 and silver medals sold for $7.50.
