Itís complete rubbish a fantasy badge invented by John Gaylor to rip off collectors. The 19H wore no such badge like that in a pagri or otherwise.

Can anyone identify the Queen's collars (55)? The late Dave Cutforth (Davec2) was very interested in them and he was a great Queen's fan.

Thank you. In what era would they have been worn?

Many Thanks CB. I'm wondering if it might be better to strip the frame and punt them out online? Even at £3 per badge I'd make £250+.

Problem with that is that you would be a forum member knowingly selling fake badges..

And has already broken forum rules by asking for info/opinion on items intended for sale without declaring so first...

Mea Culpa. THE REASON I ASKED WAS TO SEE WHICH ONES I COULD OFFER HERE. I had not intended to sell the duds here as it is against the rules. There are some REALLY hostile people on the Forum is all I can say. LukeH... just check the tone of all of your replies to the post I made.

Anyone wanting to willingly sell fake badges anywhere should not be allowed to sell any badges on the forum in my opinion..

What else can you expect?, you are clearly a seller of duff badges on flea bay so what's your problem?. You are adding to a market awash with crap and that goes against the whole ethos of this forum. The fact that you appear to see nothing wrong in what you are doing is bound to annoy the members of this forum.

I see that nothing I can say will halt the gnashing of teeth. It's been an enjoyable 11 years but I'm too long in the tooth to indulge in back and forth so that's me out.

Nobody will be left at this rate. Well done, lads, another member gone.

The forum should not just be a few entitled people with opinions and accusations to share. 90% of the members probably couldn't give a damn who sells what on ebay.
