Default Good or bad?

Hi,

Iím looking at this cap badge on eBay 373063062284, is it a good one? Iíve seen loads of more modern silver plated examples but not a silver one for ww2 period.

Thanks in advance
Rob

Cool Price rise

It may be the fact that Sir Tom could have worn it that it's expensive, you never know!

A seller to avoid? It sounds like he charges too much?

Thanks

I would have expected Bronze badges on WW2 headgear. The silver cap badge would be for a No1 Dress cap so potentially much later than WW2,
