I collect variations in designs and also variations
in backstamps ( the makers stamp on the back ). Many people ask me to tell them
or show them just what a certain badge front looks like or what a certain
description means. So these pages are here to do just that. The major
differences in the brooches listed in the Dodd's guide are pictured and
described in the ranges that they came in. Follow the links below to see
Some of these variations seem to be intentional and others may be accidents or overpaints but it's really up to the individual collector as to what they collect. I'll show what I can but the best source of information on all the variations can be found in the Dodd's Checklist.
To help you look for these I'll list them by range and try to keep an up to date list of what is on each page. Please e-mail me with any requests
