Hello, I have always wanted to add an original Polish Paratroopers BD to my collection. However, my knowledge and feel for this area is limited. I have been offered a BD that is very similar to this one that is offered on allegro (BD only). I am not sure if the allegro one is original,
mundur brygady spad. (1259395519) - Aukcje internetowe Allegro
but the one that I have been offered is 100% authentic and unmessed. It has the metal pattern collar kites, 3 metal (braided style) stars on each shoulder, and a ribbon bar indicated that the owner was awarded a VM KW and a Bronze Merit with swords. The tunic is a British BD dated 1944.
The asking price is $1000, could someone please advise if this is a fair price, or if it is a stretch. Thanks in advance
The owner also has an original warsztatowka type para jump wings with wreath - asking $400 is this fair? Sorry I cannot offer photos, although that would make things easier. I dont have my camera and this was a spur of the moment contact.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. I know many of us here are not collecting for the dollar value, but to preserve and appreciate the history, however I would prefer to pay reasonable going rates.
