Any possible data, when there is sufficient, has its uses. The parameters are best kept as wide as possible when starting a study and the value of the data assessed during a later stage. If we ever get to hundreds of weights, it is likely some will contain identical badges - in such cases SG may potentially have some additional value. Of course there can also be unreliability in other measurement too as all the data will be from different people. It is not hard science just an attempt to get as much data as possible in order to try and fine some consistencies that will help in making an assessment of this type of weight. The results are not predictable.

Another badge weight has appeared for sale. (I see the locomotive was relisted for some reason).

Here's another badge weight. It has a flat to stand it on, like some Ysart ones.

we might be getting somewhere now, all the one's i've had with one faccet so it can stand, have had the gold'ish coloured badge, the one's without the faccet are just like the normal white sulphide, could this be a clue or not?

Ray - those are interesting thoughts. But I would suggest caution in drawing any conclusions until many more have been studied.

And that also applies to my comment below ...

Something I noticed with the eBay one that Alan has linked to today ... the edge grinding looks coarser than the base grinding. Could this be a trick of the light? Or a feature of the angle of the photo? Or could it be an indication that some of these weights have been edge-ground much later than the original making????

Here are images of a pedestal badge weight I sold a couple of years ago - it was a coppery-gold colour. The top edge has a rough pontil mark - I think that sometimes gets ground smooth = and I think the stem is often snapped off. I have seen more than one badge weight with ground flats on two edges.

Frank - Do you want higher resolution images for your study, given I don't have much other info? I may have sizes somewhere!
