I thought it was at the top end of the price range myself but once again,the prices for nursing items are so variable,at present,on eBay.There are some really excellent badges at very reasonable Buy it Now prices whilst others are going for well above their anticipated values.It all goes to show that the market is very subject to change with collectors coming and going all the time.As long as the buyers are happy with what they ultimately pay and cherish their prizes then that's all that matters,surely? Collecting is just that and is not ever an alternative for playing the Stock markets.

For some reason Glasgow Royal Infirmary Pelican badges seem to be the next badge that has seen a price surge.One closed on Ebay for 225 the other night.Yet again no apparent reason other than two people wanted it??

I've also been monitoring prices and trends once over my Scottish badges were reasonable but as you say their prices are rising as with the ERI and a recent Law hospital the trend that amazes me most is the price rise amongst midwifery and early SCM/CM state badges A recent Scottish  blue midders also went for a nice sum
I can't believe that a London hosp has been relisted, where once, it would have flown off the shelf The rarer London, with the fretwork, and boxed sold for a nice sum possibly due to its rarity and the box
I'm not here to judge what someone will pay for a badge because I know if it was a rare Scottish one I would certainly up my game to get it
My bug bear is those who list a badge, you bid on it and then its disappears with a rather poor excuse This has happened to me twice in as many weeks I did complain to the one seller it miraculously reappeared ( with an equally poor excuse) and I won it
ps another ERI has gone on this seller is in France so bon chance
