Military Badge Collection, selling on 30th April, 2018 - By Nick Thompson – Medal & Militaria Consultant
Since the late 1700’s the Military forces of almost every Country in the World have had some form of Insignia for their forces Helmets, Caps and other headgear etc.
Some would say that the Armed forces of the United Kingdom, are right up there, near the top, when it comes to Metal Cap & helmet badges to signify one Regiment or Corps from another.
When it comes to collecting, the specialised fields that open up are almost endless, i.e. collecting by a certain Battle, Collecting by a local Regiment to a County, ‘Staffordshire’, collecting to a specific Division or formation, you really can make your own rules up as you go along. Almost every Military Fair I attend has a huge number of these Badges for sale, and the prices can range from a couple of pounds, right up to £50+ for a scarce Regiment or formation. So, no matter how deep your pockets, there is something out there for the collector to start his way up the fascinating Badge collecting ladder.
