Default How much to pay

Gday from Australia.
Could I ask anyone from this forum with knowledge on how much is this title worth?
I think I should just bite the bullet but an opinion would be great.
Thanks in advance
Quinn .

If you have no knowledge on the item I would certainly not go buying anything Parachute Regiment related blind without asking first as reproductions and fakes abound in mind boggling quantities.

With Paras and SF items if you take a leap of faith and bite the bullet, expect the bullet to bite you back >90% of the time.

That makes no difference in the slightest.

With dealers like the rest of the population we have the good, the bad and the ugly... the latter two categories feel more prevalent.

With only one small picture of the front it is difficult to judge though I'm almost certain it is a replica given the most unusual width of the title.
