Brigade badges are pretty common Iain, you probaly get a fiver a piece for the LI and the Wessex,a liitle more for the Forester, but under a tenner.

Thanks Mike . Just wondering as i have seen two Foresters for over 20 the L.I just under 10 and a few Wessex 12 - 15.
So might let them go as a group for 20 inc p+p if that sounds about right

Iain,
personally I think that would be giving them away! With some anodised badges the Makers Mark can often double or in some cases make a particular badge a heck of a lot more desirable, that coupled with the condition!

Timmings, whilst not scarce is certainly an indicator of an earlier anodised badge, so if it were me, and I where putting these on eBay, then I'd be starting them individually at, at least a tenner if in very good condition! Better to start high the first time round and then reduce on re-listing!

Early anodised badges are becoming more and more collectable!! Perhaps they've gone out and bought Chris's book?

Andy

If it were me I would go with Andy's advice, Timmings and Smith and Wright seem to attract higher prices than Gaunt London or Gaunt Birmingham.

Good luck with the sales.

Cheers,

Marcus
