Default New Highs for RNDs?

As recently as 2017 the standard ‘dealer price’ for a Royal Naval Division cap badge with Gaunt plaque was £75.

Fast forward a couple years and this has jumped to an eye watering £120 and bizarrely they still sell at this price.

Today, I see Bosley’s BuyWyze site pitching a Hawke for £160!!! Surely a new record high.

One wonders where it will end for RNDs?

Their inflation is especially usual as most badges, even scarcer contemporary war raised units, have not noticeably gone up in price at all since 2017.

I guess .... they try it !
The same with other badges and decorations. For example:
The german WW2-tank-destruction badge was about 1000,- Euro a year ago. Always sold within some hours for this price, dealers raised the price with every new offer.
Now we are in a range between 2200-2500 Euro !
I think they won´t sell it for 160 GBP, unfortunately we will not see how much discount Bosley´s will give to a buyer at least .....

Regards
Markus

Well done Luke. But perhaps not too surprising since Bosley's have a Coutts banking account to support.

It’s a good point David.

I think VTCs and OTC/Cadets have experienced a similar sizeable inflation.

Sadly other areas like Victorian/Edwardian infantry and HPC appear to have fallen in price during the same period.
