Default Laurie Osborne RIP

Many of you may already know, but for those of you who do not, Laurie Osborne passed away peacefully on 13th of this month aged 89. Many people will have dealt with "trivet" on Trade Me over the years as a keen bidder or as a seller as he sold off his extensive collection at ambitious prices. Many of us will have badges in our collections that passed through Laurie's hands, and many, like me, had the pleasure of drooling over his collection. Many will have also experienced the "pain" of trying to extract an item from him. Rest in Peace Laurie. Not many of the old badge collectors left in NZ now.
