    I'd like to see everyones Schwinn headbadges, and years they were used, and ball park values. I'm new to collecting these and want to learn more.

    Hey Dan Schwinn related badges are half of my addiction. Here is half my collection I have to take updated photos.

    Also very excited a complete collection has become available to me and will be buying that soon.

    What badges are you into Dan?

    WOW! How many badges make up a full set? Is that counting the 50's, 60's ones where they just say Schwinn but different color background (blue, green, black, red, white, etc.)?

    Well I have a rollfast badge, but I want to mainly collect as many Schwinn badges as I can. I love all old bikes, but I like Schwinn balloon tire and krates best so I figure I'll collect badges from Schwinns as well. I just bought the 3 old ones Frank71 had on sale here to start off.

    I have been told 297 but I have a full catalog of all Schwinn related badges. And it shows 320. But there is really no telling. I'm sure someone will chime in with different numbers and better facts.

    With this collection that I may be buying I will have 305. All Schwinn.

    Well if you will have extras after you buy the collection, and want to sell them, let me know.

    When were these used?

    Can someone tell me when Schwinn used these? What types of bikes were they on? Thank you. (photo credit frank71)

    pre war post war

    They coulda came on anything. i.d. say these footed badges would be late prr war into post war. maybe all the way up to 51? Whoever sold the bikes would slap their own badge on it or something like that.

    This is the only Excelsior badge I need. A tough one to find for sure.
