On the subject of how expensive original Lonsdale badges are:

Well I've just bought a damaged brass one ( bottom scoll with "Border Regiment" is snapped off and missing - see photo)

I paid the "massive" sum of just £3.22 plus £3.87 postage ( from Canada) for it!

I guess no-one bid on it because 1) It was a foreign dealer - I've no problem with that as I've found sellers from USA & Canadians are great - sometimes faster than from the UK, and 2) of course it was damaged - Well I couldn't afford a perfect one, plus the thing is, you know it's genuine because who would fake a broken one and even go to the trouble of faking "patina" on the break!?

I'm happy - £7.09 is a lot cheaper than an intact restrike and it's an original!

Paul
P.S. Yes, you've guessed - it was an e-bay purchase

Here's some photos of the two Lonsdale Cap badges I bought a few months ago from ebay; a silver and brass copy....can't afford the real deal unfortunately.

Below are the silver copy photos. They might look like brass in this light with the red background but it is actually silver.
