    Canadian 1936 Vimy Ridge Memorial Dedication Armbands:

    How rare are these armbands? Are they highly collectible? What are they worth?

    These armbands are collectable, but values are all over the place. Like all CEF material, there is more value in certain units than others. There are several of these up for auction on ebay. That may provide something of a guide..(if ebay can be used as a guide anymore...)Here is one of the armbands. He has several others for auction.

    I believe that these were (also) worn at the one of the reunions, the 1934 or 1938?

    Thanks Bill.

    How many different companies made these armbands?

    What did they sell for in 1936?

    I have no idea about makers or cost. But with the different construction found on the armbands, it appears more than one company produced them.

    The 21st Battalion armband sold for $45.00.

    I unfortunately didn't track the auctions.
