Title Post Office Rifles/8th London Regiment cap badge
Nationality British
Period c 1914-22
Sold

This WW1-era badge has battle honours going back to the Boer War and the Egyptian campaign of 1882. Formed in London in 1868, the Post Office Rifles saw service on the Western Front in WW1. The badge changed in 1922, when the 7th and 8th Battalions merged and the 7th Battalion badge was worn by both units.

This is a die-struck white metal badge, with a nice brazing join where the slider meets the badge itself, and a good hard slider to boot, definitely not a re-strike!

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
