Default Armoured carrier regiment

Does anyone know how much the armoured carrier regiment cap badges have been selling for for the last couple years. Both officers and mens?

Default Armoured Carrier Regiment badges

Em's have been selling from $350.00 to $550.00 while the officer's seem to be in the $800.00 to $1200.00 range. That is what I've observed anyway.

Hope the badge pictured isn't one you are considering; it's the post-war repro badge.

"it's the post-war repro badge"

? David... perhaps you'd like to wager a pint of beer on your last statement... it's been so hot in Calgary lately and I am so very thirsty...
(Of course, beers can wait until after you get your eyes checked.)

Bill, David,

I'm looking forward to seeing who gets that pint..

I'm not experienced with this badge but would like to see some images of a correct example - both OR's and officers if someone would like to share?

Cheers, Roy.

#121155, is your badge lugged on the back or does it have a pin back by any chance?

Nice badge. Could do with a bath to get all the Brasso residue off.

No idea whom it originally belonged to?

No, not sure whose it was. Thanks for your opinion on the badge.

Bah! He's changed the picture, I swear! At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. It's good, now that both eyes are focusing, but it's still your turn to buy the beer, Bill.
