Atari 'Years of service' gold Pin badge

Post by davekel » Fri Jan 04, 2013 6:58 pm

Can anyone here help me identify this lapel badge I bought around 20+ years ago? It was bought from the Computer Exchange in London after they had visited the Atari HQ clear out sale. I was told that it was given to employees after 20 years of service but I can't find any info on this item anywhere. It has (CTO 1/10 10k DGLGE) stamped on the back... which is something to do with the percentage of gold content. It's a tiny, shiny, lovely little thing with some sort of jewel/gem in the base.

Oh, it came in a smart brown velvet lined little box with a tiny note that says O C TANNER ( and then some inspection notes about the item.
The CTO logo on the back of the badge is the mark of O C TANNER - who made badges for years of service... so that ties in with what I was told.

Here's where I found the CTO info ( ... -what.html)

Anyone know if it's rare - likely value? Never seen one before.

Cheers, Dave
