Default VIII Recce Regiment inflation?

Another jump in the value of the VIII Recce badges? This may be an optomisitic opening price and it may not be realized, but it was only a couple of years ago that these badges could be found for about $250.

Kind of makes me wonder what will happen when the current crop of collectors passes on. Will badges in general still be collectible, or are my kids going to get stuck with a heap of 'Beanie Badgies'?

It didn't sell. For now, the asking price of $1000 Cdn was overly optomistic.

There is a bi-metal version and an all white metal version on this wbsite......might be worth a look.

No images???
With modern software, it is very easy to add images to listings.

Hello Gents,

Here is another one ... perhaps at a decent price if it is an original...

What is your opinion ???
Best regards .. Herve

Default 8 RECCE

If you look close at the very tip of the maple leaf, the middle leaf on the front of the badge, looks like some type of marking like a W, or are my eyes going?
