NOT a Morris JB front badge!!


There is at present advertised on eBay UK item number 130449980833 by "inconspicuous-ian" of what is purported to be a Morris JB van front badge. Be careful if you are considering buying this badge, as it is NOT a Morris JB front badge! The correct JB van front badge is shown below. I contacted the seller to point out my concerns about the badge, but his response (shown on the listed site) was that it had simply flattened slightly in the post. BEWARE!!!

  1. I have had contact with this seller, one of my mates thinks he is a con man....I don't know, maybe just trying to scrap a profit out of buying and selling. The badge he is selling looks like one off of a Morris FG lorry and is/will be about 3 inches longer than the correct badge, it will of course be taller too. The guy you emailed is the same guy who has the JB fan blog, you have a link to his site on your site. As always buyer beware!!

  2. Thanks mate ... I sent him a second eBay query respectfully requesting that he either remove the listing, or add a comment that based on additional information just received, this badge may NOT be a JB van front badge.

    This will demonstrate just how honest he is. Google "Morris JB van badge" and my blog warning comes up on top!

  4. I have bought a Austin 101 Spare parts Manual off this guy. Looks genuine but he always has a lot of things for sale
