What is the history of Rochdale Olympic badges, did RMP produce them originally, when were the ROC badges made initially, what from and size? I only query it from the Ebay advert that suggests there were 2 sizes, thanks.

Regards

James

Did Rochdales ever make them out of brass, the ony ones that I have ever seen are aluminium.
When you look at the letters on the ebay they are very chunky.
My stock ones are cheaper and virtual copies

As far as I am aware they never made brass badges, the alloy ones had the mounting pins attached to the back, and were made for the factory by a local foundry.
