    Authentic Canadian Patches?

    Post by CanadianBD on Sat Dec 15, 2018 6:01 pm

    Hello everyone! I was hoping for your input on this Canadian battledress. I was wondering if the patches were repro or not. If you have any info, please post! Anything will help!

    Buying BD and Badges Without any Knowledge

    This is painful to follow. I am using this thread and others by this 'collector' as an excellent case study in how not to collect militaria.

    Just for the record, it screams repro. Really really screams it.

    In my opinion all the patches on the uniform are repro. If you are hoping to join a re-enaqctment group it might be something to pick up. As a collector's piece it is worthless. Save your money and buy an expensive BD from a reputable dealer who offers a refund policy. An original uniform will always increase in value. A unifrom like this will be impossible to get rid of when your interests change. Not to be dramatic, I wouldn't even stop to look at this uniform.

    Good Luck,

    Ypres
