I wish I could say yes, however I will not be in attendance this year. It is probably one of only two or three shows I have missed in the past 21 years. The last two years have been pretty good, Bantam parts-wise. Since I will not be able to be there to hunt for the hard to find pieces on your list and mine, I will have to do my best from my desk. If, like me, you aren’t or wont be at Hershey this year, here are a few Bantam bits on eBay which may interest you.
A seller on ebay, in western Pennsylvania, appears to have unearthed an interesting collection of Butler related memorabilia. Among those items is an, impossible to find, employee badge from the American Bantam Car Co. In the past five years on ebay, one other badge has made its way to auction. The seller also has an employee badge from the Standard Steel Car Co. which preceded Bantam at its manufacturing facility and another two badges from the American Rolling Mill which finally took over Bantam around 1956. If you look through the seller’s other items, you can see some other Butler related badges. These could be a nice addition to your collection.
