Hi, I have 5 of these beauties for sale. Brand new and unused original old new Atari stock. This metal badge fits in the top part of the Atari STE case. Item will be send securely to ensure it is not bent. Just remove the old badge, clean off any old residue, peel off backing from rear of new badge and attach in place of old badge. £20 each plus P&P. UK P&P = £1.90 Europe P&P = £3.90 USA/Russia/Asia = £4.90
Can anyone here help me identify this lapel badge I bought around 20+ years ago? It was bought from the Computer Exchange in London after they had visited the Atari HQ clear out sale. I was told that it was given to employees after 20 years of service but I can't find any info on this item anywhere. It has (CTO 1/10 10k DGLGE) stamped on the back... which is something to do with the percentage of gold content. It's a tiny, shiny, lovely little thing with some sort of jewel/gem in the base. Any ideas? Thank you! Oh, it came in a smart brown velvet lined little box with a tiny note that says O C TANNER (www.octannerjewelers.com) and then some inspection notes about the item. I've just edited this next bit as I have discovered it is the original box as the CTO logo on the back of the badge is the mark of O C TANNER - who made badges for years of service. So, I've kind of begun to answer my own question haven't I! Here's where I found the CTO info (www.treasurenet.com/forums/what/142265-solved-gold-tie-lapel-pin-possible-diamonds-what.html)
I have revived a recently acquired 130XE that needed memory swaps, keyboard mylar fixes, and extreme de-yellowing of the case and keys. Previously it was ready for the trash bin, now it's 100% functional and looks terrific! Here's the only issue... the "ATARI 130XE" badge on the front/top of the case looks really crappy on the left side (where it says ATARI in red and has the silver Fuji logo). It looks badly faded/discolored for about 1/3 of the length of the badge (just past the word ATARI ) and the rest of the badge is fine. I have been attempting various ways to replicate the badge and none of them have yielded anything even close to acceptable yet. Again, this thing went from looking like a total piece of non-working junk to working and "almost mint looking" with the exception of this darn badge issue. I saw some threads here related to badges but they were quite old, so I thought I'd put out the request anew. Does anybody have a working solution for a really good Atari 130XE badge replication process? Or even better yet, does somebody have an extra 130XE badge (perhaps could be taken off of a parts machine?) Or, even a 65XE badge could work because I could splice it since the 130XE portion of the badge i have looks fine. Appreciate any help on this matter. It's the last piece of the puzzle to get this machine "fully restored". Thanks! -Eric
