Default WW2 Canadian Infantry Canvas (Printed) Shoulder Titles

I picked these four WW2 vintage Canadian Infantry Canvas (Printed) titles up last week. I can't find many on the market so would guess that they aren't that common !
Any information regarding their scarcity, value (always a hard one I know) etc more than welcome.

Being up front, I will be disposing of them once I have a little more information about them.

Thanks in advance

If you bought them how did you determine a price if you're asking what they're worth now?

So you've never taken a punt in something that you didn't know the exact value of ? I saw them for sale , I thought the price was reasonable and I bought them - quite simple really - if you don't have anything constructive or helpful to say, probably best not commenting

Fair enough, you took a chance.

It was a fair question even though you've obviously got your knickers in a knot over it. I'll also comment on anything I wish to.

Yes and I suspect it’s paid off for Paul.

Debatable, then inflammatory comment. Yes but I really wish you wouldn’t.

I can say what I paid for examples of these four flashes:
- Highland Light Infantry $80 Cdn (about 49 pounds)
- PPCLI (as above)
- 48th Highlanders ($65 Cdn., or 40 pounds)
- South Saskatchewans ($75 Cdn., or 45 pounds)
I think are fairly reasonable prices for these items.

Lets keep the comments on the insignia please.
Loyalist has given a fair estimate on their prices.

Thank you for taking the time to provide this information, greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

I have found the prices are a little higher depending on where you are selling them, in Western Canada PPCLI canvas could go for $100, you don't see the HLI or SASK too often.
