    Mark - an item is only worth what people will pay for it
    ... but I agree, I think I could find a thing or two to spend 200K on instead

    That is an insane price to pay for a wound badge I just could not bring myself to do it . With that kind of money I could buy a lot of Third Reich items to add to my collection.

    All thoe it be a wonderfull piece if it is real my wife and then my banker would kill me in that order.

    5 Gold , 2 silver and 17 Black were awarded , an estimated price for a Gold one a few years ago was 35,000 Euros , 15,000 euro for an Urkunde and 5,00 euro for the Etui !! Price wise you have to remember that for Award collectors this is one of the rarest pieces to own !!

    Certainly agree Mark it wouldn't be something i would be spending that sort of money on !! That said last year after the Museum at Avranches closed and the items were auctioned off someone paid 46,000 euros for an American 101 Airborne helmet from Normandy !! Must be some crazy millioniares imvolved in collecting !!
