Default Bargains ?

Had a bit of spare time and a few quid from the lottery , so did a bit of shopping. Wanted to get some "basic" Legion stuff (purely for show as I don't really know what is good or bad) but found a couple of things I liked.

1. A 15 year Brooch - Foam it was stored in had perished and 'marked' the back , any tips on cleaning ? Cost 1.99 + postage.

2. Legion Badge - Enamel damaged/missing , only bought for other item with it ......

3. Legion Inter Games 1937-1913 winner medallion (hallmarked Silver) - Should I clean it and how ? Cost including Legion Badge 4.99 + postage.

4. 1915 On war Service - A couple of spots on front , verdigris ? , and rear plate flattened. Not bothered about back but what to do about front ? Cost 2.20 + postage.

5. Flanders Fields Poppy - Took a chance as it could have been fake but it arrived today and is genuine (compared it with my original one) . Only "damage" was that bottom of box had water damage , had a spare box at home so it is now perfect. Cost 20.00 + postage , half the cost of my original one.

Any advice gratefully accepted.

Will sort out 'Legion Collection' and add it to Poppy Album in a few days.

Hi Mike

Still looking for my "spare" 1921 poppy. Still happy to send you an "NZ" one, f.o.c.!
