Default Badge ID & collection Evaluation

Hi there everyone, I have a collection of 36 badges/hat pins mostly labelled British India Calvary, Others also Pakistan. Body gaurd badges, scouts, Calvary etc. I have had them 20 years since my Pa died and would like to pass them on as I've inherited so much more war stuff. Could someone help me value them as a collection? I know 1 is worth at least 125 but that doesn't help me as a whole collection. Thank you Pictures should be attached.

Hello Geneo89, welcome to the Forum. Your account is active and open for posts.
What is the purpose for a valuation? Such can vary depending on whether it is for insurance or for sale.

Cool Badges

Obviously you wish to sell them and to get a fair price, I would get photographs of the front and back of each badge for evaluation as to whether they are original or copies and some idea of value and offer them on the forum classifieds if they are deemed authentic.

Collectors will nearly always offer more than dealers.
