    Default Canadian Badge Horde Reference

    Hi all. Looking for recommendations on a book or reference website for Canadian cap badges? Please and thank you. Perhaps a British option would be appreciated as well, as there are some throughout.

    I have only a couple (haha) that I’ve been meaning to sort and organize for some time. Something with current/approximate values would be incredible. Ignore the modern stuff

    I know very little about Canadian badges but I think you probably need to specify a period of interest or be prepared to source several books to cover the whole "time line" as it were.
    However; have a look here to begin with;

    Thank you Mark! I will take a look!

    I am most interested in sorting out WWI and WWII. I believe Canadian badges fall into common categories; wwi, and 20-1950’s. But likewise this is not my forte and am open to any advice and correction.

    That’s a bit of a generalization, your range should be $5 to $2500 if there’s a Garrison Battallion badge in there. Hence why I seek reference help

    I’m asking because as you see I have 1000+ pieces... I only know the value of the rarest one and maybe a couple others. Geez... did not mean to offend m8.
