Default A couple more sets.

Another couple of my sets , the Legion ones are just pins that caught my eye (I have no idea about them but like the look).

Got about 3 or 4 more pages still to sort out , then will put them all into an album.

Hi

How old do you want your poppies? I've got some from the 1920s including a couple of the first poppy appeal held here in NZ in 1921 (although it actually was held in 1922, due a to a hold up with the shipment, I'm told). Interestingly enough it says "DECORATIONS DAY" on the small paper tag.

The poppies were in a small lot from an antique shop some years ago and someone put together quite a "run" of these up until the mid-1940s.

There is also a very early British poppy that has a most realistic paper flower and a small round red label that mentions the BL. I'd have to check on this however!

Happy to help!

I only really started collecting when the "Centenary" items came out , so most of my stuff is new but I have quite eclectic tastes and if something catches my eye I may buy it.

PM sent.
