110th Anniversary badge
Just received the badge I ordered. Excellent quick service, great badge. Score 5 out of 5.
Tony Jeffries, UK
Good morning Hermen.
I am delighted to leave feedback on my recent transaction.
In one word "FANTASTIC".
The website is easy to use and you've kept me informed of the progress of the order at every stage AND the Morgan 110th anniversary badge is first-class. Its finish and the clarity of the text. Looks superb on my yellow +8.
Thank you - can't wait for the next special production.

Morgan Group Malta badge
I must thank Hermen Pol of Morgan History Info / badges.com, for the professional and friendly service he gave me while commissioning the Morgan Malta Group badges and also congratulate him on the quality of the final product produced which is very faithful to my original design.
Actually this started when we first got MOG414 and Vivienne, my wife, got in contact with Hermen, purchased an 80 Anniversary 4/4 badge as a surprise present and enquired re producing a 'Malta' badge.

Cliff Baker, UK
I have been buying badges for many years from “morgancarbadges” and have always had an excellent service with well-packaged items, recently there was a problem with a package which was damaged in transit, I am very pleased to say that the problem was resolved in a very professional way, after several weeks of worry, as there was a long delay in the courier returning the package to Holland. I was kept informed at all times by Mr Hermen Pol and am very pleased that I got the badges I ordered when resent all in perfect condition. Thank you for your great service – Cliff Baker
Hi Hermen. Just to say thank you for the excellent quality of the Badges received today. We are very pleased with all purchases from you. Kind Regards. Bryan + Sheila Tyrrell
35th Anniversary script badge
Dear Hermen, As you know, I have now received the 35th Anniversary script badge for the rear of my 2003 Plus 8. When I bought the car a few weeks ago the existing badge was rather bent, not attached to the car and I understood that replacements were no longer available. After some research I did discover two replacements- one in Germany, and the other from Morgan Car Badges. I ordered one from you, and I have been most impressed with your service. You personally tracked its delivery progress and rang me with answers to my queries. The quality of the badge is first class and you were even able not only to advise on an appropriate adhesive for attaching it to the car, but actually arranged for the adhesive to be sent to me at no extra cost! The badge is now in place, and I am totally delighted. Very many thanks, Jon Grindall
Badges go everywhere!
Thank you for the badges and small gifts! Well received.
They look excellent!
Best regards from Romania!
Morgans of Hawaii badge

Congratulations for your web, the order processing and the shipping track and trace with Post NL + final delivery to the “Point Relais” shop in my small town.

The Morgan Centenary Roadster 100 Register
It was on 12th July 2015 that David Harris met with Hermen for the first time during Thrill on the Hill at Shelsley Walsh where they discussed having a special Car Badge made, which would be designed for us by Tcherek Kamstra, to sell and fundraise for our first All Morgans' Day to be held at Blenheim Palace in 2016.
The Car Badge is absolutely stunning and having just completed our even more successful 2018 All Morgans' Day event at Blenheim, with its own stunning Car Badge Design, our cooperation is perfect.
Hermen's generosity has been outstanding during this time making substantial donations of many £ hundreds to our chosen charity, Combat Stress, the Veterans Mental Health Charity.
David Harris, Terry Seymour and myself have come to know both Hermen & Tcherek extremely well and what a fabulous and talented team they are. We are looking forward to working together again with them both during our next projects.
Heather Rowntree, USA
I was having a hard time finding any information on a unique Morgan collectable item that has been in my family for years. Luckily I came across Morganbadges.com and sent an email of inquiry. Immediately I received a response from Hermen Pol. He was extremely helpful in identifying my item and informing me of it's historical information. Additionally Hermen was generous and instrumental in securing the sale of my Morgan collectable. He is genuine and trustworthy, which is hard to come by these days. I was very happy to find Hermen Pol and his Morgan organization, from my home in California across the globe to the Netherlands!
Jim Rowe, UK
Hi Hermen, the All Morgans' Day 2018, Blenheim badge arrived this morning.
Very quick. Very nice badge
Paul Toomey, UK
The TaffMog badge arrived yesterday. I can't believe what good condition it's in. Thank you so much for finding it and providing such a good service.
Ron Gray, New Zealand
You are a top man and we will keep you on. Many thanks and take care . Cheers, Ron Gray.
John Brunk, USA
Delighted! Thank you.
Richard Palmer, Australia
Quick and easy purchase from a true Morgan fanatic of a unique sign. Quality packing and very quick postage. A pleasure to deal with.
All the best,
Steve Wright, UK
Thanks for your email, I was very impressed with your products and service. You have some rare and unusual badges and I am very pleased with the service I received, prompt delivery and a degree of personalisation that was a nice touch.
Joseph Parrolo, Spain
Very beautiful badge better than the pictures, I'm very satisfied.
Richard Griffiths, Cyprus
My MSCC badge arrived today, which is a bit longer than quoted but hey, I live in Cyprus!!!
The badge is great and just the right period for my car. It will go well with the old RAC badge that I bought many years ago. I will be visiting the website regularly to see if anything else catches my eye.

To Hermen and anyone who reads this
I first saw Hermen at the Blenheim Palace Morgan meeting in July 2016 and purchased a couple of badges from him there. He was willing to spend all the time it took to answer Morgan related questions as I had only picked up my new car from the dealer a few weeks before and it was a learning curve regarding the plethora of badges he had on display.
I told him of my interest in Plus4 badges and he has been a great help over the months since, sending pictures of badges he has found that he thought may be of interest and subsequently adding to my growing collection.
I do not think that in all the 40 years I have run my small practice I have come across a supplier with as much passion for his business or taken as much care of his customers. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for him, he replies very promptly to messages and goes above and beyond the norm to sort out things when there are delivery glitches with the mail system.
Thank you again Hermen, it is a great pleasure to do business with you.
Het Jensen Genootschap Holland
As the Dutch Jensen Owners Club never had a car grille badge, we decided to have one designed and made for our 35th anniversary.
In one word: what Hermen and Tcherek did was fantastic !
On behalf of the Dutch Jensen Owners club and all her members(Het Jensen Genootschap Holland) I would like to say: THANKS !!
Rod Willett, UK
The 80 Years 4/4 badges arrived this morning, they look absolutely fantastic!
I'm so pleased and appreciate the efforts you and your colleagues have made in creating such a special badge.
All the best for the future,
Charley Lloyd, USA
A great transaction! As the years pass more rapidly, I knew it was time to begin serious "downsizing." I had a wonderful collection of Morgan badges which I wanted to sell and allow others to appreciate them. Hermen to the rescue! A wonderful transaction. I hope wherever they land, they'll bring great joy and pride. Thanks Hermen!
John Tough, UK
Ordered that 80 years 4/4 sew on badge off Hermen. Looks stunning . Great service kept me updated on such a small item . Once again thanks for the great service and the great badge.
Steve Young, USA, recent Morgan owner:
My experience with Morgan Car Badges was first class. Hermen Pol was extremely helpful on badge selection and very attentive on all follow-up to the order; the shipping (in my case to the USA) was timely and efficient; and the badge quality is second to none.
Stan Jodeikin, Australia, long time Morgan owner and major badge collector:
Dear Tcherek and Hermen,
I have just received my badges. They are absolutely stunning and exceed my expectations. I am very happy with the design and quality. Thank you Tcherek so much for all your input and creative flair in presenting the various designs. I hope that you both enjoyed working on this project as much as I did.
Alastair Gordon, UK
Many thanks for the Blenheim 2016 Morgan badge. It has been a pleasure doing business with you, your communications have been excellent and the whole ordering process was trouble free. The badge itself is exceptionally high quality and as I mentioned before, far to good to leave on the car all year round!
Tom Hoover, USA
"I found Hermen and his website www.morgancarbadges.com doing an internet search looking for Morgan badges. Hermen was very prompt in responding to a couple of questions I had and was extremely easy to work with. I ordered a couple of badges and was very pleased with the quality. He shipped the badges promptly and they arrived in the USA just over a week after I ordered them. It was a great experience and I highly recommend Hermen to others.
Tim Cretney, Isle of Man
"I contacted www.morgancarbadges.com looking for a rare, limited edition badge, and, not only did they quickly find the badge I was looking for, but from the information provided they also suggested a second, even rarer badge that I didn't think was still available. Excellent service and communication, and really fast delivery. I can't recommend Hermen and his site highly enough. An excellent and valuable member of the Morgan family and community."
Ragnar Torland, Norway, and new to the Morgan community:
"My first Morgan I bought just one year ago. It came with a badge bar and the Morgan 75 years badge. The next badge I bought was the Norwegian 20 years of Fjord MOG. Still I missed one badge to complete my bar. On the website of Morgan Car Badges I found a broad range of badges, and more important, all badges came with a description and history. As new to Morgan the website gave very good information. My new badge had to look good and connect to my Morgan +4 2000 model. I found a very nice badge, from the 40th anniversary of the MSCC and the +4 model. This was just perfect.
Connecting with Hermen by mail I got very good service and advice. The shipment was fast and a new badge has now completed my bar. My very best recommendation to the website and the service Hermen provides.”
Alan Falconer, England
When I was searching for Morgan badges I came across the Morgan Car Badges website. Found a badge I liked and sent off an email. I received a very quick and pleasant reply from Hermen Pol and purchased my badge from him. The service and attention I got from him was excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from him again and can't recommend him highly enough. It was a real pleasure doing business with Hermen who sets a standard others would do well to emulate.
Edi Stampfel, Germany, the first person who sold his badges with my assistance.
"Dear Hermen, You asked me to write something about my experience in selling my Morgan badges with your help and I’m happy to do so.
In April 2012, I asked whether you were willing to sell badges from the 1980s. Your answer was yes, because you had contacts with a number of collectors, so we made an arrangement.
My job was to take pictures of all the badges, front and rear, give you a price idea and manage the shipping. Your job was to find the customer within your network and with the help of your website, manage the financial part.
I took the pictures and made a list with my price ideas. Sometimes we must discuss my ideas but in the end I trusted your experience. Over 60 badges and pins from my collection have been sold in just 5 months’ time. That was a quick success and the entire process from your site was very professional.
Anyone who would also like to sell his Morgan items, I can say ask Hermen. I would do it again. Best wishes, Edi Stampfel".
David Vickers, UK:
"I stumbled across Hermen a few years ago when I was having my Flat Rad Coupe, of over forty years ownership, restored and looking on the web for background information. Hermen was friendliness itself and shared his wealth of knowledge with me, telling me things about my car that I had never known. I fancied a few relevant car badges and he was able to sort me out extremely quickly. I don’t think I will become a serious collector of badges but, again, I am sure that Hermen will do his best if I start to chase a particular badge. His depth of knowledge on Morgans as well as on badges is encyclopaedic. On top of this, it is a pleasure to deal with him and he is one of life’s gentlemen, an unfortunately vanishing species".
Dain Flemming, Ireland:
"I have worked on the launch of two badges with Hermen and have found his advice most helpful. His openness, honesty and willingness to share his knowledge has been much appreciated. He has a wide knowledge and love of everything Morgan and this comes through in all of my dealing with him."
Dennis Glavis, Morgan West, USA:
"I have known Hermen as a friend and have done business with him for perhaps 13 years now. He is always the considerate gentleman. Always a pleasure to do business with Hermen. His transactions are well executed. I would encourage anyone considering purchasing any items from him to do so with total confidence."
Ruut Bianchi, The Netherlands:
"Over the last few years I regularly purchased badges with Hermen. Every time quick and personal service, badges always received promptly and in good condition. Always a feed back about whether you like it. Being a regular customer, Hermen also knows what you are looking for and he tries to find these for you. Also when he issues badges, you have first choice. Simply excellent."
Sandra Crawley, UK Lady Morgan owner:
"Dear Hermen, I have been really pleased with the badges I bought from your website, as a lady owner of a 4 seater car there have not been many relevant badges, the 4 seater and ladies drive Morgans are really unusual. You have been very helpful and prompt when replying to my email questions, also the despatch and delivery was very quick. Looking forward to my Factory Centenary badge when its available.
Pietro Noë, Italy
"I began to collect Morgan badges 24 years ago, before I owned my first 4/4, when I ordered it, in 1990. My experience with Hermen instead is relatively recent and it happened by chance, looking always for new items on internet. I quicky discovered that he has become in these years a true authority in this field, being more than well known between all the Morgan collectors and fans over the world. I bought from Hermen and sold to him too, always having a really good partnership, and that soon transformed into sincere friendship.
A most important thing is that I learned a lot from Hermen, he virtually knows every Morgan badge produced, in all the forms and colours. He is able to put in touch the collectors between each other, and find for you the rarest badge or the one you’re looking for, maybe for years and years… He has the competence, he has the skill, he has the passion."
Milton Machalek, USA:
Hello Tcherek, Roberta was not home this morning when your box arrived. Seeing your name on the label, I immediately knew this was my birthday present! Without waiting for her, I tore open the box. I took out my new Himalayan Morgan Club badge and just stood there holding it, and looking at. It is simply, stunningly beautiful! It is fantastic! The colors! The detail! A fine piece of art! Over many decades of being a car enthusiast, I have bought numerous badges to adorn my cars (Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Ferrari, Jaguar, Volvo, Morgan) but I must say I have never had a badge of this high quality. I am deeply impressed. I could not be more pleased. This badge shall proudly grace the front of our 1964 +4 Morgan for many years to come. Thank you sincerely.
