IBM Pins and Button 

IBM Collectible Pins and Button

There is little question, Manfred from Berlin, Germany has the definitive website covering IBM Collectible Pins. http://www.mypins.de/ibm
If it is not the largest personal collection, I am sure it is the largest documented collection of IBM pins in the world. If you have a pin and want to know what it is, check out Manfred he is the IBM pin guy to ask.

I have chosen to use his numbers, for all but one Rare Moto Club Pin listed as ??? as it has not been assigned a number, YET :-)

I am always looking for ThirteenStripe IBM Logos and Pins are no exception. While Manfred has so far failed to produce a ThirteenStripe Logo on a Pin, he did find a Button in his junk box, a gem in the rough, overlooked and lost for many years. I thank him for finding it and sending it to me along with the memory chip pin I found in the swap area of his website, and just had to have for my hardware and storage collection.

While this kind gentleman would not accept my first born in trade, I was most happy to provided transportation and made him godfather or more like next of kin to the French CE Moto club pin. On this day of ...... sorry guys that pin is now spoken for :-)

No good deed goes unrewarded, I again have to thank Manfred for locateing and dusting off several more fine examples.

This pin poped up on my radar along with several other pins that were being sold by a french collector on ebay, while I was googling "Montpellier" looking for info about the French FifteenStripe logo.

It was this purchase that started me looking at pins and buttons as IBMcollectables. I now wish I had bid to win on a few more when I had a chance.
