Default CEF Badges From Bulgaria - ebay.

Does anyone have any insight into how these badges came about? They seem wrong for many reasons but I can't figure out why someone would go to this trouble for the volume that they may sell.

Odd source for CEF badges indeed. A couple appear to be cast copies.

A short while ago an identical thread (with excellent contributions) ran its course. Better look up that one.

Stay away from any badges of Bulgarian origin. They are all repros. of varying quality. Several different sellers (or at least user names) are involved. Don't even consider buying any of them you will be throwing your cash away.

Gentlemen,
There was a time, not all that long ago either really, when you could just go out and buy a CEF with the confidence of knowing it would be right, how times change, very sad indeed.
