You can also buy from other serious collectors, but I do not collect loose insignia. Hence, I do not follow the issue.
My interest is to puncture historical claptrap when it swells up, especially when infected with the "scull" malaise.
I collect cap badges affixed to caps.
Mr. Carlsson and others sometimes sell their things at modest prices.
As far as I am concerned, all these badges differ from one another in subtle ways that elude my analysis, and
for which I can find no convincing cause and effect.
My endless calls for a typology of these badges always ends in a kind of irritating silence.
Mr. Carlsson and Mr. Winkelmann have nice collections, and share generously of their things with a sound analysis.

Many thanks to FB for his eternal patience with the 'is it real' crowd.
