    Default Help please: Flotten-Kriegsabzeichen - High Seas Fleet War Badge.

    Dear forum readers,

    I have recently tried to sell some WW2 German badges on eBay but had the ad's removed, I assume because of the sensitive nature of swastikas. So after lots of research this site (WRF) seems very helpful and possibly the platform I need to help me proceed.

    I have a shoe box full of badges/patches and pins which (I have been told) my Grandfather brought back from mainland Europe to Britain when he returned from service. I am no expert in this field (but am learning fast) and I am looking for advice on authenticity, so here is my first badge.

    Kind regards
    Rob

    Hi Rob, welcome to the forum!

    I have admended your thread title and added the name of the badge to it: Flotten-Kriegsabzeichen - High Seas Fleet War Badge.

    It is a nice original.

    You can sell it easily here in the forum classified ads.

    Please start a new thread for each of your badges.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Rob,

    All things are subjective, but I think a fair collector to collector price for your badge would be around 300 - 330.

    I would also suggest adding a link to this thread for potential buyers to reference. It gives a people the warm and fuzzies when they can see a piece has been put up for discussion and approved.

    You're right, I can't add a link to the sales ad either. At least you've told people there is a thread here where the badge is discussed though.
