Rare National Olympic Committee (NOC) pins from 1984 collection.

I had the great pleasure and privilege of carrying the Olympic Torch in 1984. Among other wonderful memories of the games, including working at the Velodrome and sitting with the athletes during the Closing Ceremonies ? ah, but that?s another story ...

Anyway I was able to obtain a number of National Olympic Committee (NOC) pins (undated) from various countries. I have had these since 1984 but as I have a few duplicates it seems now would be a good time to share them with others.

These pins from various countries are all uniquely beautiful, some are absolutely stunning and many, if not most, may be quite rare as far as I know. Note these are all National Olympic Committee (NOC) pins, not individual sports pins, sponsor pins, media pins or the like.

This particular item is an Olympic NOC pin from Ivory Coast (Cote d?Ivoire)g. It is unused, in like new condition as I received it from their National Olympic Committee (or their representative). It has a butterfly (or military) clutch back type fastener and measures approximately 1 1/4? x 1 1/2?. Back is stamped ?BERGOUGNAN BORDEAUX?. This is a fairly large enameled pin featuring red, white, green and gold.

I currently have Olympic NOC pins available from the following countries:

Andorra
Cameroun
Central African Republic
Congo (Republique du Congo)
Gabon
Ivory Coast (Cote d?Ivoire)
Lesotho
Madagascar
Mali
Mauritania (rectangle)
Mauritania (shield)
Mozambique
Niger
Nigeria

Upper Volta (Republique de Haute-Volta)

This plastic collapsible cup features a translucent faux marble look in red. It was a promotional item for a printing company in Long Beach, California as is obvious from the printing on the top of the lid. You can tell by the phone number it is from an earlier era.

Compact, simple to use and reusable, it offers a nice alternative to paper cups for hot or cold drinks. Very nice condition, suitable for use or simply to display it?s vintage appeal. A bit whimsical.

Dimensions:
? 2 1/4? diameter
? 7/8? thick
? stands 2 3/4? tall

This exquisite bowl features patterns around the rim and on the bottom as well as wonderful details of a leaf pattern in the center. The entire surface of the bowl is textured. Highlights of light and dark show off the detail extremely well.

This piece would serve to hold small items but you may rather display it for its own unique beauty and design.

Dimensions:
? 8? diameter
? 1 3/4? high

This is NOS (New Old Stock) from my workshop stock, well aged, at least thirty years old but never used. I have a number of pieces available in varying designs, sizes, shapes and wood types. The manufacturer is Constantine?s, founded in 1812 and long established in New York, but more recently located to Florida.

This piece is a lovely floral design in multiple woods and colors featuring a basket and bow. The background wood is walnut. The paper backing on the face remains intact. (The design seen in the picture is the back ? the face of the inlay is protected by the paper backing.) The aging process has allowed slight warping to develop which can be corrected before applying to work piece. May be used as inlay or overlay. A similar item is still available from the manufacturer but theirs is about half the size of this one and more expensive.

Measurements (approximate):
? 3 1/2? wide
? 6 1/2? high

I have a limited supply of pieces available. See my other listings or contact me for more information (not all available pieces are listed).

This is a VERY OLD three piece solid brass safety razor from The Gillette Company in its original purple cloth lined metal case. The outside is covered with what appears to be a leather like material and somewhat worn due to its extreme age. ?Gillette? is on the lower left corner although very faint.

The razor itself is solid brass throughout with nice knurling on the body and bottom and is in extremely nice and usable condition. It features an old design for blade replacement which is accomplished by holding the head and turning the body to loosen or tighten. The threads are good and everything tightens solidly. I did find a small very slight crack in the handle but you must look closely to see it and it has no bearing on the look, feel or function. The underside of the blade guard is stamped with the Gillette logo and ?Made in USA.?.

Included are 22 new vintage double edged blades from a variety of manufacturers as listed below. Note the two red and black ?Thin Gillette Blade? paper wrappers are empty.

VINTAGE DOUBLE EDGE BLADES INCLUDED (new oem):
? Fam - 3
? PAL ? 11
? PERSONNA Precision ? 4
? Smith ? 1
? STAR ? 3
Total ? 22 blades

This would be a stupendous addition to any man?s repertoire of shaving paraphernalia whether for collecting purposes or daily use.

Dimensions:
? 3 15/16? long
? 1 7/8? wide
? ? thick
