That's because it is the same badge!!
(This is the one I posted a screenshot of the negative seller feedback for).

The journey of this sale, so far, appears to be:
  • The badge was originally listed (without the medals) for 49.00
  • The auction ended (I assume by the seller)
  • An offer /sale of 300 was then agreed (this can be seen in the feedback that was posted by the then buyer - I added the screenshot of this earlier in this thread)
  • The seller then asked the buyer (at the 300 mark) for more money - This is according to the buyers feedback, the buyer I assume did not pay this, and subsequently left negative feedback
  • The badge, now with unattributed medals, re-appears back on eBay, now with a starting price of 600

So is the LRDG badge for sale with the dodgy medals a genuine LRDG badge?

regards

Thanks Woofy

So it looks the seller thought it was a wrongun but then somebody convinced him otherwise he possibly did a bit of research but anyway decided the badge was worth more than 300 and somehow the medals have turned up with some BS about the recipient info being lost. Total chancer even if I wanted it and had more money than sense Id still not go near it.

Funny how the seller went to the trouble of finding a set of medals to go with the badge, but didn't bother to get an Africa Star; the one medal that would obviously go with the LRDG badge. It's not as if genuine Africa Star's are difficult to find either.

I must add I have no involvement with the seller.

It is odd that no-one bought this badge, despite it being cheaper than any others advertised.

Sounds alarm bells to me.

re-listed by the way, same price.
