British and Commonwealth Insignia for authentication
« on: May 25, 2016, 04:01:03 PM »
  As promised in another topic, here are some better pics of some of the British and Commonwealth items I received from the local museum clean out last December... I am interested in authentication and valuation. If you are interested in anything, shoot me a pm with a fair offer. All proceeds help my local museum so I am easy to deal with and I get nothing! I am aware that the former owner bought many repros, but they cost me nothing, so I will not be offended by your comments. As always, thanks to all for the input. Scott.

Whilst I'm not a collector of British / Commonwealth insignia, I'm bound to say that your selection looks kosher to me! There are some really desirable pieces among them. A good sign are the traces of thread or stitchmarks where they have evidently been removed from uniforms...also a bit of mothing is "good" too...if you know what I mean?! The metal insignia exhibits the patina of age, so that checks out as well. I'm sure the dedicated British / Commonwealth collectors will have something to say about it? Nice lot!

Thanks Ian, I will be happy if half checkout as good. That said, I am with you on the patina and the mothing. Moths don't eat synthetics!  Scott.
