30/4: Pin Trading on the Map

Looking around the revamped London 2012 website tonight, I came across a link to an Olympic Park map.  On the map, the area around the Arcelor Mittal Orbit has been named Orbit Circus and in this area was an icon for the Coca-Cola Pin Trading Centre.

We've known the rough position of the pin trading centre was around the stadium and Orbit as Coca-Cola were able to share this with us at a recent pin meet, however I think this is the first time we've seen anything in print!

Here's a screen print of the map

Anthony I know how you feel, I am starting to have the SHAKES ( Choccie Ones ) too. Also From the Map I wonder. is it wise that BP are near to the Water, especially after what happened off of the American Coast a while ago... This will make our Ecco Friendly Fiends happy.

Other places of interest seem to be The ACER JOURNEY ( The Life and times of a Pin Collector maybe ? )

The Samsung Mobile Live PIN sounds like they must be breeding a new type of Pin Badge. Those Japanese are clever folk after all. "IT'S ALIVE !!!! "

Very helpful, Paul. Thank you!

Noel, isn't Acer a regular contributor to this blog and the forum? Maybe he knows where this journey is going to.

I wonder what the Samsung Mobile Live Pin is? Maybe I should trade a couple of internal pins for it!
