    Default british boots 1945

    hi everyone, i wondered if anyone could give me any advice on a pair of boots i have listed on ebay at the moment,
    I have no idea what the value of these is, so i put them on a 99p auction.
    An ebayer has just offered me a lot of money to end the auction now and sell them to him/her.
    Really my question is, what should the asking price be? Mainly i dont want to loose out (obviously) but equally want to be fair and not rip off the buyer who is obviously quite desparate to get them to complete a display.
    anyway, here's a link, any help greatly appriciated.

    I take it you don't realise they are rare Commando issue boots (Hence the rubber sole and not the usual leather with hob nail studs and heel irons.)

    These are seriously rare.

    Here is a wartime pic of them in wear.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Stefan.

    What kind of value would you guys put on these? I have a "guesstimate" price in mind.

    Cheers, Ade.
