The price blew me away!

I didn't realise that some UK anodised badges go for such a price.

Default The price of fame!

Good morning.

Good morning.

I am not sure why one would be surprised: I have previously commented on this Forum about Lancs. Fusiliers in A/A on Mr Bosley's website disappearing in minutes for GBP600, and West Yorks. examples have gone at Auction for GBP700+commission & VAT.

So, GBP 475 is chickenfeed.

It goes to show, PT Barnum was right.

And, hallmarked silver is as cheap as chips. Anyone seen a Parachute Regiment going cheap these days?

Enjoy.

S.T.

Nothing like being offensive about other collectors, eh?

Anyone who doesn't collect what you collect or have the same values as you have is an idiot, right?

Some people collect stuff for reasons other than money grubbing.

Are both the Dorset and Dorsetshire anodised of similar rarity or is the Dorsetshire the very scarce one? Kevin

The Dorsetshire is the scarce one Kevin.
Although it appears that there are both void and non void versions of the Dorsetshire.
