Default Hi, New member looking for help if possible

Good evening everyone.

I have recently inherited a bag of military cap and beret badges from my Granddad who sadly passed away.

I have had a look online at various sites that sell them to get an idea as to what they are although there are some that have different versions and it got very confusing trying to get a list of what I have.

I was told that there are some that are quite sought after but I have no idea.

In total there are 47 of them and I don't see any doubles.

Any idea where to start?

Many thanks

Hello BigDan85, welcome to the Forum. Your account is active and open for posts.
The best approach would be to image them and post.

Welcome to the Forum. You need to take clear, seperate photos of the front and backs of the badges.

Cool Welcome

Hello BigDan85, welcome to the forum, what are your intentions to do with this collection?

It would be nice to see these badges, as Andy says separate photos of the front and backs of the badges.

If you do decide to sell them it would be nice to see forum members given the chance of buying them, you will get a reasonable price and not get ripped off.

My thoughts Rob

Don't ask for valuations on here, only to sell somewhere else. Others have done this, and it hasn't gone down very well.

I wasn't really looking to sell just more of an idea as to what i have and if there is anything that stands out.

I am not a collector, the only other military badges I have, have been metal detected. So if anyone wanted to send a pm of an offer for all of them I will consider it.

Cheers

Dan
