Default What a/a badges are worth buying ??

I wonder if anyone else is like me and knows that whilst some anodised badges can be worth a lot of money, and others only have only a fairly nominal value ,we dont know which a/a badges are worth looking out for.

I wonder if anyone is willing and able to provide a list of the more valuable anodised badges that,if you came across an example on your travels, would be well worth buying ( providing the price was right ).

P.B.

Peter,

as a rough guide I'd look out for those Infantry Regts that did not emerge from the Brigade system and almost any with a King's Crown..

the following are IMO the most scarce (and costly to get hold of!):

RUR (KC)
RSF (KC & QC)
RB (KC)
Somerset LI
W Yorks
E Yorks
Lanc Fus
S Lancs (Beret)
Loyals (KC & QC)

I'll let others add the Cav and Corps etc.

Andy

Yeomanry
1. Loyal Suffolk Hussars
2. City of London
3. Sussex Yeomanry

The above achieve good prices.....

Griff,

agreed but they are not in the same ball park as the prices realised for the Infantry badges?

I have seen a set of Wessex Ano collars advertised recently for 50 Is this realistic or a typo by the seller?

they are scarce but that's rather steep, all depends on whether 2 people are prepared to bis against each other!

Thanks Andy,

I was sent a pair of these as part of a recent exchange by a forum friend along with the cap badge. I wasn't expecting the collars at all and they make a nice set all together. I have no plans to put them up for sale but it's nice to know that they are fairly scarce and therefore desireable.

Regards

Ry

Hi Andy,

I would forget about the RUC (KC), West Yorks and East Yorks.

The others are pretty desirable though.

Regards

Chris

Hi BC,

Some QC versions of the KC are rarer - e.g. Surrey Yeomanry.

Hi Charlie,

Beware of these.

Genuine Timings marked ones do exist but so do dodgy unmarked 1980's Gaunt pieces and fake marked Timings.

Regards

Chris

What sort of value does a Q/C Ano RB blackened have?

Cheers

Phil
