    Vintage Head Badges

    I have quite a few "vintage" head badges from France that I'd like to start selling, but wonder where I might do some research as to what I should ask in price. Can any of you guide me to a resource that would help?

    Hundreds are for sale on ebay at any one time (over 1000 right now), just look at completed auctions (sellers can ask any crazy price, but that does not mean they get it).

    I've seen some relatively obscure head badges go for peanuts at swap meets (like three and five bucks) - no where near the asking prices of some eBay listings - so I'm not sure there is a definitive resource at the moment. There's a good pictorial resource over on Flickr so maybe some of the avid collectors might be contacted and cajoled for advice?

    The thing to do is find the guy who paid $10 for bike that is complete but for the badge, and sell him the badge for $100.

    I'm interested in one of the really old school Peugeot headbadges if you come across one of those.

    ill throw my headbadge into the mix. cand decide if i should try to repaint the headbadge with a paintpen or a small brush with some acrylic paint (or is there a certain paint i should use instead).
    or do i just remount it in the vintage state on my newly painted frame: (frame can be seen here: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...-sekine!/page2 )

    Quite a collection. I'd be interested in seeing a pic and hearing a price for the Stella.

    I found two Stella badges. I just took pictures and can email them to you (PM me with your address). Once you see them you can tell me what they are worth to you. I saw one online for about 5 Euros (badge plus shipping). I really don't know how much they are worth (less than $10 my guess) and I'm not thinking they are worth a mint. Like to get them into good hands for some restorations maybe.

    Hi
    I was looking through you list of head badges and I saw you have a AUMON badge. I am currently restoring a AUMON tricycle circa 1909 model and the head badge enamelling is in poor condition, I have located a business that does enamel repairs but I am not sure if all the colours are present.
    Could you describe the colours to me or post a photograph.
    Thanks

    Copake Auction does appraisals. They might be able to give you some idea of the value of your collection.

    After seeing the interest and knowing that I've got a couple of vintage headbadges in my shop, perhaps this is the next hot idea! I've got some Raleigh badges if anyone is looking.
