  • Limited edition of 10,000 pins.
  • Made from original historic metals used during World War Two , a D-Day Spitfire, D-Day Royal Navy vessel and Army mess tins.

Mike, I am really glad that you posted that. Managed to purchase one this morning. Great addition to the commemorative pins.
Cheers

Exclamation 2020 Poppy Pin

Is the 2020 dated Poppy Pin available to PAO's/branches ?

One is listed on eBay for £3.99 including postage (seller from Leicester) , I'll be getting mine from PAO/Poppy seller to ensure money goes to RBL but was curious if this was genuine RBL item ?

Just checked Poppy Shop and their eBay site , no sign of 2020 dated pin but as these are normally only for PAO's/Branches I didn't expect it to be there.

They do have these 2 new Poppy Pins available.

The 2 new RBL poppy pins have arrived , they are 'slightly' larger than the normal double dated ones .

Picked up another (unofficial) 'mini' 11/11/11 poppy , photo shows it's size compared to the 2005 'stud' pin.

Don't know if this is a trial/prototype item or if they plan mass production but thought it would be an interesting addition to any collection.
The 3D Nylon Poppy pin is now available directly from Poppy Shop.

Also , 2020 Welsh and ROI Poppy Pins.

Remember to save me a Poppy Mike .

A lot of planned events have been cancelled , the regional City Poppy Days that were scheduled to take place in Cardiff, Bristol, Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester are now off.

London Poppy Day is 'provisionally' still on (subject to restrictions) but may end up a victim of 'lockdown'.


P.S Some scum are already/still selling 2020 Poppy Pins on eBay.

I will reserve a 2020 Pin for any member who wants one @ £2 plus £1 postage & packing and will post within 20 days of receipt. - Orders via PM please.

I am recovering from COVID-19 after a short stay in hospital, and am relying on outside help to post pins at the moment.

Just spotted one of these on eBay with a 'buy it now' price of £30.00 + postage !

But that was put in the shade by this listing :

"POPPY PIN BADGE JOB LOT BUNDLE ‘SUPER SUPER RARE’ COLLECTION 2006-2019 (16 Pins)"

Starting bid £799.99 !

Certainly a handsome thing and ten thousand is not a great number, I hope they prove to be as successful as the Somme and other reclaimed metal pieces that have been produced in recent times.

Thumbs up Copper Poppy

A new addition to my collection , a really nice handmade copper poppy.

Although not an 'official' item (10% going to RBL) , it is unusual and will develope a nice patina in years to come. Weight: 14.5g
