Default Looking for General Officers Badge

Hi,

Iím looking for a bronze General Officers badge and wondered if anyone had any idea of how much one should cost. I see there is one on Regimental Badges is this a reasonable price and a good example?

Thanks in advance

You can buy them for around £100, but they are far and few between.

There is a famous picture of General Monash wearing one, possibly on the AWM website.
