    There are others here especially "Big Ned" that have a better understanding and
    experience on these type of badges... Sit tight.....G

    The badge is a good 'Die 3' type AS in Triangle, an unknown maker, in bronze that's lost nearly all it's finish. The silver coloured pin is typical for the 'Die 3' type and is not a replacement. The badge is actually die struck, not cast, and has all the typical traits one would expect. Although not visible on the reverse photo, I would expect to see some sign of hand finishing on areas around the tank and inner wreath. There may also be parallel striations running from the centre of the reverse out to the edges of the badge, more signs it's a die struck and not cast piece.

    Knowledge is power, hope you can get it at a good price!

    Regards, Ned.

    Buyer is asking $250. Ned, what do you think a fair evaluation for this piece is? Sorry to put you on the spot... I just can't find any point of reference for this version of the badge.

    That is around the dealer rate for one of these marked AS in Triangle badges these days, more if it's a stunner. If it were collector to collector i'd expect it to be less at around $180-$200. Looking at it again, It may have more finish left than the photo's imply, which would be nice, making it more desirable, but that's a chance you may have to take....

    You could always wait around for a better priced one to come along, but that's up to you.

    Regards, Ned.
