These earlier pattern badges are probably going to reach Nightingale prices I think!

 I agree that a new bunch of collectors out there seem willing to pay high prices for the better badges. It may settle back down eventually as it often does, for those of us who have seen similar surges over the years.The question is ,is this good or bad for the hobby as a whole?  High prices can flush some badges out of drawers onto the market but then every vendor thinks their badge is worth the same as a Nightingale or large London. I certainly think that fewer quality badges are coming onto the market, perhaps because they are already in our personal collections? As one of the remits for this site is to promote the popularity and interest in the history of School of Nursing badges, it seems we are a victim of our own success? Talking with other vendors, many say that they are struggling to find new stock at reasonable prices.

The one on Sally’s site was £450 if memory serves me right.  However she tends to be a tad on the expensive side & she usually cleans the badges too.

Wow! Must be a record price. Maybe not. Dame Phyllis Friends'badge sold for £500 and that was the small version of this badge. Provenance is everything!
