Default 10th Canadians badge

I don't collect Canadian badges but I bought this one to go with a kia 14-15 star to an mm I recently purchased.
Comments welcome. I have to say while I was looking around for Canadian badges I did find that a lot are quite pricey, including 10th Canadians (not this one) some dealers, including those in Canada, where you might think these badges would be more easily come by, had prices ranging from 35 to 75 or $60-$100 plus dollars for the 10th. I know prices vary and some dealers take the mick. But I did find the 10th to be consistently high

Thanks for turning the photos the right way up. That's how they look on my phone. Don't know how they ended up the way they did

Hello BillyH, you have acquired a nice example of an authentic 10th Bn badge, obviously made by Hicks & sons (who were one of the main makers.) It is not well known, but the distinct battalion badges for 1 Cdn Division were acquired in the UK, not in Canada. The values you quoted are not out of line. CEF badges almost all run from $50 Cdn up.

Glad you like the badge. It's by Hicks and sons. I did come across information about Canadian badges being made in England, and some other interesting facts about Canadian regiments etc. I'm not complaining about cost with this badge. It only cost me 22 with free delivery. I must say though, there are some very nice Canadian cap badges out there, and if you look around you might get lucky like me!
