Last hat badge I saw sold went for $7000. And that was several years ago.

Hi Guys,

In regards to the SVC KC badge there is a version with a slider and one with lugs.

Does anyone happen to know why there are the 2 versions? Could the lugged one be an NCO arm badge?...

A patch can be posted to UK generally for around AUD $4-5 via normal untracked airmail.

To register it (only way to track it) it then jumps up to around AUD $16-18.
