    I think the price is just a bit high...I see them for sale at around $35 usually...perhaps you can negotiate.

    Agreed-good badge but overpriced. Not the best condition(it has rust) for such a premium cost.

    i did not comment on price before, but as other members have, i will comment also that this badge in this condition is indeed overpriced. i figure by 20% discount to the price here or thereabouts, you might find one even in slightly better condition.

    Thanks all,

    The seller has come down to 45.00 but given the comments here, I think given the condition I would be better off to just pass.
    I will wait for a better one with no rust or loss of enamel.
    Thanks for helping me come to a correct decision.

    Gentlemen..as we approach the centenary of the start of the Great War prices are rising......$55 equates to around 30, which is in my view a reasonable price these days for such an original award (which this most definately is) ....the one shown has a great patina, and IMO worth having in a collection, over a mint one any day.
    Prost ! Steve.

    I agree with Steve, I think its been over looked that this BWB is WW1 period and not TR and the price is therefore pretty reasonable
