Default Reasonable prices?

Some of their AAs seem reasonably priced? Except the Norfolk’s.

I wouldnt buy from him. All cheaper elsewhere.
The problem with badges like the Norfolk is that they are very fragile so its hard to find a decent example thats not bent or damaged.
The linked badge is NOT Kings Liverpool. Its Liverpool UOTC. The makers mark is way too late and the scroll is not seeded.

And at over 27 GBPs for postage and “Import” by using Global, shipping, MOST DEFINITELY would not interest me in bidding. Why are so many UK dealers using that postal system when Royal Mail gets the same item to Canada, tracked and signed for, for 9.95 GBPs. It’s also a rip-off to charge import duty when none is demanded for low value items. Regards, DJ.

I once bought a SA TA Middlesex badge off this man. He sent a Regular Middlesex abdge and accused me of trying to con him when I asked to send it back. Total loser = avoid.

Not the most horrendous prices, but a bit inconsistent in my opinion. Some are not badly priced but others could be found cheaper.
