Default Advice on British polices badges

Hi all

eBay do not permit the selling of police badges that resemble current issue and I don't wish to list any that will likely be removed.

I believe the badges in the following link are obsolete but could anyone verify that is correct? https://photos.app.goo.gl/1gTn3t77qMemphit8

Thanks for assistance

Ellis

There is a mixture of current and obsolete. Unfortunately I don't have the time to go through them sorting the wheat from the chaff. Someone else may be able to oblige. If you live outside the UK, bear in mind that most of the items you have are easily obtainable here for quite reasonable sums. The cost of sending them from abroad is likely to outweigh any advantage in a UK resident buying them.

Dave.

Ellis,

Your Surrey Constabulary helmet plate is obsolete and can be listed.

Ebay shut me down in a heartbeat at the beginning of the year.

I now sell on Etsy. On eBay I was spending a small fortune of fees between them and PayPal. Etsy is much cheaper and I am quite happy with them.

For a reference guide you can check out my collection site at http://www.symphonyofservices.com/ba...s/Welcome.html

I have several hundred badges listed.
