    If anyone is interested, I placed a Geiger counter on this piece to see what sort of readings I received from the radium paint

    I will post a video when I work out how!

    Thank you Adrian.
    The gentleman that helped me with the test is a university lecturer in radiography. He suggested that displaying the gorget in a perspex display case would even further reduce the minimal level of alpha rays emmited

    Great piece, some of the cloth backed versions were faked in the 70's I feel pretty safe with the late war cardboard backing ones, the warning with the paint was not to inhale or ingest any particles, I would believe you are safe displaying it out in the open with such low levels, second hand smoke would probably kill you first lol. Great video and a first in the study of these. Now I just have to find one thats cheap enough for me.

    Good luck with that, $800 and up seems to be the going rate these days.

    Oh yes I am well aware of the prices!! I saw a mint cardboard back version at a show the dealer wanted 900, if he would have said 800 I probably would have bought it.

    I would have plumped the extra $100 and grabbed it! Especially if mint.
