Title Lt Col rank slip-ons, SAS
Nationality British
Period c 1965
Price £45.00

These (10.5 x 6 cms) are the rank slip-ons for the shoulder straps on an officer's summer drill tunic, such as he might wear in the tropics. They have the modern Queen Elizabeth II crown embroidered in black and they appear to be made of a light cotton drill (they are more of a moss green than the rather grey tone in the photos).

The SAS were famous as they emerged from WW2, but really came into their own in the post-war period and currently, of course, see much active service worldwide.

They came from a collector with a set of wings and a stable belt.

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
