Default Antiques Roadshow 17/03 Update

I've been out of circulation for a while and wondered if I'd missed any update on the possible copying of the 'Antiques Roadshow' printed badge books?
The last I heard, their was a strong possibility that the lady owner was going to allow it to be photographed.
Any update appreciated.
Ken

Ken,

You will be glad to know that I am meeting the lady next week in order to record the badges and discuss with her how they might be published.

I will keep the Forum's members posted on progress.

Jon,

Excellent news. Perhaps a 'Special Edition' of the Formation Sign is called for?

Good work Jon - and please pass on thanks to the custodians of the albums. They are doing a great service to the collecting community in sharing their records. No doubt there will be charge for the end product; but it will represent an archive many will potentially be interested in I am sure.

Tim,

A special edition of The Formation Sign is certainly a possibility but I need to get the owner's OK first.
