Since 1954 bowling pins were tested, approved and given permit numbers. Untill 1989 by ABC (American Bowling Congress), from 1990 to 2005 by ABC/WIBC (Women's International Bowling Congress) and since ABC/WIBC merged with Juniors Bowling in 2005 by USBC (United States Bowling Congress).
Many permit numbers can be viewed via the menu or the links on this page. Per page are 25 to 35 pictures of the pins and permit numbers shown. But still many to be found and added!
Decals from different eras:
ABC approved (1954-1989)
ABC/WIBC approved (1990-2005)
USBC approved (2006-present)
The lists below were provided by USBC (www.Bowl.com Arlington TX USA). The list has been released in April 2015. Since then some new provided permit numbers were added.
