    I have found here in Canada, that many items have come down in price, common WW1 Medal pairs to Corps, have dropped as well as some cap badges. I am thinking that many dealers were stock piling stuff and have dropped it on the market. As well here several large collections have gone up for sale as the Collectors pass on.
    Of course the rarer items still hold their value, and some items have gone up in price.
    The stuff is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, it just seems to me, the items I want are all in that group that the prices have risin in.

    Interesting observation Dean. Canada does seem to be bucking the trend of the English dealers / eBay.

    Well as I said Common Corp Medals are down in price, about 25% I think I worked out. And that is watching them on ebay. At the shows I see dealers asking far more than most items are worth, but I do not see those items sell.
    Original WW1 Canadian Tunics with the cloth insignia are very expensive, even mothed I see them going for $1500 and up, The enlisted tunics seem to command the higher prices, The average Canadian recruiting poster Starts at around $500 with the Unit posters going for much more.. like I said, it's only worth what someone is willing to pay.
