Title 53rd Foot glengarry badge, OR's (Fox's re-strike)
Nationality British
Period c 1889-1902
Price £30.00

The original badges were in service 1874-1881. Mr Fox's re-strikes were produced from original dies c 1889-1902 to satisfy the demand of collectors at that time, and were quite faithful to the originals, except for the placing of the lugs at the middle, rather than North/South as on the originals.

The price of this nice, sharp example reflects this difference. It is 6.5cm tall, struck in yellow brass.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
