Default Parachute Badges and Insignia of the World

I don't know if this goes in here but I'm sure the moderators will move it if it doesn't.

I bought this book, well two actually, for AUD$18 on eBay. It's not new but it's in very good condition.
At the same time, the same book in new condition is available on Amazon for AUD$603.

It goes to show that people will scam the price on anything. I couldn't say whether anyone is stupid enough to pay that price because someone might.

These books cost about 3.50 when they were published in the 1970s.

Yep, I got quite a few of those little Blandford books on uniforms and insignia, gave that one away a while back as I don't pick up much in the way of para insignia.

That is in excess of three hundred quid!
