20/4: 100 Days Pins Sold Out

Around the Rings reports that Honav UK have confirmed that the 100 day to go pins have sold out. That probably comes as no surprise to those that were searching for pins on Wednesday.


From what I can tell, the pins were available on the official London 2012 online store, the London 2012 shops at stations (and perhaps airports?), and the online retailers Glamorous Living and Pins & Things.

By 9am on the day it appears that the official shop were out of Wenlock pins both online and in store and by mid morning it seemed like there was very little of anything left. Each design was limited to 2,012 pieces however as a number were sold to stakeholders (read more here), the number issued to the public was always going to make this a quick sell-out.

The small numbers issued is reflected on eBay - a 100dtg pin is now on £23 with 8 hours to go!

Slightly disappointing to be told by pinsnthings that the 100 days to go pin is completely sold out only to see them go on to list one on eBay this evening together with a Faith pin which never even got listed on their site.
Is that in accordance with their sellers agreement John Honav?

Retailers can sell the pins where they want and at what price they want.

i had assumed you might stand up for the collectors' interests, clearly i was wrong

What do you expect Honav to say? They cant tell people what price to sell things at, that would be illegal.

I think the key word is "Recommended"! FWIW, the only official retailer never to give me a deal on the price of 2012 pins is the one that claims to be "never knowingly undersold". What is the RRP anyway? BTW, the Faith pins are out there and you won't need to pay the retail price if you do a bit of digging.

Is there going to be a 50 days to go pin?? I guess that means this Thurs if we are going to see one.

according to honav at the last meet, no 50 days to go pin is being issued
