M Size Bands
Our “M” size bands come from Germany and have an inside diameter of .177″(4.5mm) and are made of plastic. “M” bands are imported from Germany and therefore take longer to arrive, four to six weeks. Please order early to allow for the six weeks!
First 25 Junior bands are only $10.00. These are available upon request at the time of original membership and membership renewal.
Beginning in 1985 ABS began offering special prestige coded leg bands. There is an initial setup charge to the breeder the first year of $25.00, and a charge of $10.00 each following year, in addition to the normal charge of any bands ordered. Band codes are to be a combination of two or three letters. Special logos or symbols will not be accepted. The Board reserves the right to refuse any code deemed obscene or not in ABS’s best interest. When orders for Prestige Coded leg bands are received without the required additional fee, the Secretary will notify the member and make arrangements for the additional funds to be sent.
