Default That escalated quickly

From £0.25 to £7,599.00 within two days, where will it end?

Mind blown ?. Wow.

Never mind a bottle the seller (mary-tin-collector) owes a weekend away to whoever that curtain was bought from.

Not been closely keeping track but I believe quite a few of the patches therein have already sold for hundreds and one a couple thousand of pounds.

WOW! £7,599.00 for a 3 Commando 2 Troop cloth title. Is it really worth that much?

Yes, if one finds absurd exorbitance over a bit of cloth reasonable.

I think we've all paid a little over the odds for a badge we really want, but this is crazy! Nice little retirement package for the seller though!
