Default Now I Have Seen Everything

I hate to say it but don't you think that this is a bit much especially for a badge style that I have never seen or heard of before..... The name looks like he is a medal dealer maybe if someone knows him may just give him a note.....

One I'm going to pass on! And the cost to ship it to me here in the US is 30 GBP!!!! Pretty sure he's doing a little gouging with the shipping cost not counting the badge cost!

His 1CANPARA is suspect, don't like the reverse.

I have not seen that STRATHCONA title before, three lugs?

What do you think of the first pattern STRATHCONA cap badge?

He is very active on ebay UK buying items and then selling them on at double the usual market price. Not an authority on Canadian badges by any means.

The Strathcona's first pattern badge is ok, but the value is ridiculous. The Cdn Para Corps badge is also ok, FROM the image. I would want it in hand before a conclusion. The Strathcona's title is ridiculous.

The curved Stratcona's badge is not Boer War, but a 1912 officers pattern. A SH hat badge, was just the shield......
