Mons' :- Site news Summer 2017
I'm again adding 'new' listings, 'Little & Often' to my web-site sales pages !
Mons' is always happy to receive the offer of surplus to collection items, either as part exchanges or direct purchase. (As long as a seller is happy / can comply with my buy in regime, see terms 'Buying In').
The 'house-keeping chores' I have started to carry out are on going, with some being a little more time consuming than I would have liked / expected; the organisation of new stock being the worst offender in this respect. It is something that I MUST however do before stock becomes unmanageable.
I have a good number of 'interesting' items to list, so continued site viewing is as ever encouraged.
Site promotion via social media and attendance at militaria fairs is bringing to Mons' new site viewers, buyers and sellers alike.
Mons Military Antiques can now also be followed on 'Twitter'....search & follow Richard Archer @DICKY61ARW
....'Busy times-ahead, and much too do'....and its only me doing it, so in 'all' matters please do bare with me.....
'Hope to hear from you soon' !

VINTAGE GORDON COOPER 1963 SPACE FLIGHT COMMEMORATIVE BADGE
A rare Gemini, space project, space flight, 22 orbit, by Astronaut Gordon Cooper May 15 - 16 1963, commemorative badge.
Excellent damage free condition badge with some slight sun bleaching to the bottom right edge of the badge only.
Reverse with lapel safety pin lapel fitting.
The badge design is typical of this early period of US space exploration.
(Smaller badge used as a size comparison in one of the images).
All vintage space flight badges of this type are something of a rarity, especially in the UK....I presume because of the the UK's peripheral involvemnt and interest, in the US space programme.
