Here’s My Badge

Collectors of Queen and Brian May gear, merchandise and memorabilia should look out for these quality collectable lapel badges on eBay. Long since discontinued, they measure 2 1/4″ (57 mm) long by 7/8″ (22 mm) wide and are decorated with black and reddish brown colour enamel. The proportions of his famous Red Special guitar and the placement of the hardware are relatively authentic given the small size of the reproduction. The pin badges affix in two places with one pin located behind the guitar headstock and the other behind the guitar body (not visible in the photograph below).
