Black Sabbath Tony Iommi vintage 1970s SEW-ON PATCH

I am disposing of my extensive collection of badges and patches, which I built up mostly at concerts in the 1970s and 1980s. The majority are rock and heavy metal, but there are a few of other genres. I will also be listing a few T shirts and magazines (Kerrang!, NME, Sounds, etc.), plus concert programmes and related items, so please keep watching my listings. I have made every effort to keep all my items in excellent condition (although this has not always been possible with the paper items), so the vast majority are as new or nearly so.

This woven sew-on patch measures approximately 3 inches (1 inch = 2.54 cm.) across, and is in excellent unworn condition. I purchased it at a concert at the Bingley Hall in Stafford in about 1978, and it has lain undisturbed in a drawer ever since, as I never got around to sewing it onto my jacket, so there are no marks or damage at all,

I am also offering for sale several similar items, so please check my other listings.

Payment accepted in sterling by cheque, postal order or International Money Order. Please note that Canadian or US Money Orders in USD cannot be cashed in England; only International Money Orders made out in Pounds Sterling are acceptable. British banks are no longer accepting Eurocheques.

If you would like to pay by PayPal, please read the following


I reserve the right to ship only to confirmed PayPal addresses, which must in each case match the address notified to me by ebay at the time of sale.

The carriage quoted includes insurance. This is to comply with with PayPal's Seller Protection Policy. Details of this, and PayPal’s other policies, can be found on the PayPal website. If you would like to pay by PayPal, please make sure that you are thoroughly familiar with all of PayPal's terms and conditions.

The cost of insurance is, for the UK , 77p for Recorded Delivery, and this has been included in the postage amount. This gives coverage up to £46. Above that amount, Special Delivery is advisable. This costs £5.45 for items weighing less than 100g, and £5.90 for items weighing between 100g and 500g. Rates for heavier items are higher, and I can supply details on request. Special Delivery means that your item is insured for up to £500.

For overseas purchases, International Signed For at an additional cost of £4.95 has been included in the shipping amount. This gives cover up to £46.

Only one insurance fee per consignment is charged.

I realise that insured shipping is not always cost-effective on items of low value, and so I used to offer shipping without insurance, at buyer's own risk, which many customers welcomed, as it was much cheaper, but since 22 September 2009, ebay have removed the ability of the seller to offer insurance as an optional extra. Therefore, all my listings will have a combined handling/shipping charge which is inclusive of insurance. Please contact me IN ADVANCE OF BIDDING if you would prefer shipping without insurance.

I would rather not be paid by echeque, and you will not receive your item before any such payments have been cleared, which on past experience can take anything up to 3 weeks. Please ensure that your Paypal account is in credit before sending any payment.

My preferred method of payment is by cheque drawn on a UK bank, and if you can pay by this method, then insurance is not compulsory.

Please do not bid if you do not agree with ebay/PayPal's conditions.

POSTAGE AND PACKING CHARGES (INCLUDING INSURANCE) : UK £150, Europe £6, rest of world £6.50.

I will gladly combine items to save on postage, but if you are thinking of placing further bids, please alert me BEFORE your first item has been packed, as I would prefer not to have to unpack and repack items.

Please note that I never end auctions early, as it is not fair on other bidders. Anyone making such a request will automatically be added to my Blocked Bidders list, along with non-payers, those who repeatedly pay late ...
