    EBAY STOPPING BADGES BEING SOLD

    I have just got off the phone with eBay. They pulled all my badges, both Police & Military irrespective of age (I had some going back to Victorian times) and suspended my account. They are now strictly enforcing their policy about selling anything Police (and they include military) insignia. No one is going to be allowed to sell any badges! Looks like I was one of the first to fall. When I questioned them as to why other badges were still up, I was told they will eventually stop everyone. That in a month or two you will very little items like this listed. I asked them if they knew what kind of bad publicity and outcry there would be and I was told they were ready for it and they didn't care. Their advise - go find another platform to sell on! This quiet earth shattering for badge collectors (and sellers) to say the least. Guess if anyone holds shares in eBay, now is the time to sell! Dave Cushworth USA

    Canadian Munitions Corporation?

    Thank you. I think you nailed it! http://vintagemachinery.org/mfgindex/detail.aspx?id=149 This company was created by the 1910 merger of MacGregor, Gourlay Co. Ltd.; John Ballantine & Co.; Hespeler Machinery Co.; the woodworking machine division of Goldie & McCulloch Co., Ltd.; and Sussex Manufacturing Co.. For a detailed early history, see the entry for MacGregor, Gourlay Co. Ltd. In 1912, CMC acquired London Machine Tool Co. for their line of heavy-duty metal-working machinery.

    Drew: May have been Canada Machinery Corporation Ltd.in Galt, Ontario. Major manufacturer and may have changed over for the war effort.

    Canadian Munitions Corporation?

    The original question was not who made the badge. The original question was asking if anyone knew anything about the police department it represents? However, glad to learn that Gaunt was located in Canada.

    Canadian Munitions Corporation?

    Drew Not sure if you are suggesting the Gaunt only operated out of the U.K. but J.R. Gaunt & Son did operate out of Montreal. I have an RCMP long service medal that came in a small blue cardboard box with J.R. Gaunt & Sons (Canada) Co. Ltd. Montreal printed on the lid.

    Canadian Aluminum Company Police

  16. I came by a Canadian Aluminum Company Police cap with badge and noticed, once I removed badge from cap, that it was stamped from the WWII era Three River Regiment cap badge. I have this military badge in my Canadian military cap badge collection. To my knowledge the Three River Regiment cap badge was never issued in a white metal backing, such as the stamping of the on the Canadian Aluminum Company Police cap badge. A cleaver use of an existing die to simply stamp out a white metal backing and apply the Canadian Aluminum Company Police logo over this. Does any one have any information on the Canadian Aluminum Company Police?? Thanks, Drew

    Drew. J.R. Gaunt was also in Montreal.

    Canadian Munitions Corporation?

    J.R. Gaunt, which is unusual as this is a U.K maker of badges.

    Canadian Munitions Corporation?

    Hi Drew. Who is the maker> Cannot read the hallmark on the back? Thanks. Steve
  20. Hope someone can tell me more about this badge. I'm guessing based upon grenade and initials: Canadian Munitions Corporation, LTD WWII or WWI ??? Size: 50mm height and 40mm width. Made by J.R. Gaunt

    Looking for some Information on some badges

    HI David, the Fort William badge is from the province of Ontario. The towns of Fort William and Port Arthur amalgamated on January 1, 1970 to form the city of Thunder Bay. At that time, the two separate police departments amalgamated as well. The link below has some information about Thunder Bay and the amalgamated towns of Fort William and Port Arthur.
  25. I have a fairly nice collection of badges from the UK and other parts of the world, but only recently started adding Canadian badges. I have three in particular that I would like to know more about, any assistance is greatly appreciated. Force history, dates of usage, and of course FMV. Thanks
