That's a good price considering what they have gone for in the past, was it one of our members?

Well it's the London Hospital  badge saga all over again!5 Unissued Nightingale badges ,minus pins,have just been listed as one lot on Ebay,starting at 100. It will be interesting to see what these go for and if any more are in the offing but perhaps it may well bring these into the reach of the average collector?

All over! Ended at 430 - any of us lucky enough to get it? Certainly not me I'm sad to say.

No, not me either Maggie, but then I already have one of each (registered/enrolled) plus an additional registered. (Different issue dates). So one mustn't be greedy!

Hold that thought,and you just never know. This last month has seen over a dozen Nightingale badges come up for sale at various different auctions so it rather reinforces the fact that there were a lot issued.I just wish that was reflected in the prices they still fetch,but again who knows?

Are you a soothsayer Peter? There is now " a job lot of 5 new,unissued badges for 620 "on *bay!! Can't afford that either.
