Absolutely appalling, but, I dare say there will be some who are only motivated by profit.

Someone who clearly has more money than sense paid ninety odd quid, which would certainly have been a bargain, had the title actually been original as described.

With a starting bid at ten quid, it is cheap when compared with the eighty five charged elsewhere by the other clown already mentioned in this thread and others.
Original examples were worn by the Hampshire Aircraft Parks Battalion of the Territorial Force and are worth rather more.

It is so sad to see the amount of copies being offered as originals these days.

Cool Online buying

I would think that a seller who has "No returns accepted" should be a warning to anyone thinking of buying scarce military badges from them, but no, they get bids and positive feedback.

That buyer has returns accepted with 14 days??

Having returns accepted on or off doesn’t affect the originality of any item.

Even if the seller’s listing contains ‘returns not accepted’, if they describe an item as original when it is not they must accept the return under eBay’s T&Cs regardless of their returns policy due to the fact they have mis-sold an item.

I’ve bought plenty great items from sellers who do not accept returns. As always - buy the item, not the seller or their story... or returns policy.

Cool Returns policy

Luke, I was not referring to any seller in particular, just a rule of thumb that puts me off certain sellers, yes, I have bought perfectly original badges from sellers who for one reason or another put this criteria forward when selling.
