Title Royal Horse Guards OR's helmet plume, nylon
Nationality British
Period c 1960
Price £40.00

This fits the standard troopers helmet. This regiment, one of the oldest in the Household Cavalry, has guarded the monarchs of Britain ever since Charles II returned in 1660. They still guard the monarch on state occasions, along with the Life Guards, who wear the same helmet, but with a white plume.

It is in ex-stores condition, but missing the rosette to cover the top fitting, and missing the locking nut on the base.

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
