Last hat badge I saw sold went for $7000. And that was several years ago.

And personally I think collar badges are rarer.

Why is that Mick ?? I thought hat badges would be harder to find as less numbers .

Person observation...

I've seen more hat badges than collar badges.

Either way both are very rare.
