Badges? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Badges!
Well, maybe a few badges couldn't hurt.
Picked up these little fellas when I went on a pre-WWII tobacco card binge last week, wherein I bought over 100 of them for well under $20 shipped.
After two 14-hour days in the classroom, I have neither the time nor the energy to do any research on these cards, but, using deductive reasoning and a dash of inference drawing, I'd venture that these were produced after 1918 in the UK.
Ninety-year-old cardboard from across the pond for under a quarter a piece? Hells and yes. And there are plenty more where these came from. Stay tuned.
