We are currently awaiting a large shipment containing some 200 space pin badges collected by a single collector over a period of some 50 years . This collection some very unusual and interesting badges and many are in mint like new condition
The value of space badges varies considerably . Condition , age and rarity of the badges are all taken into consideration
Many of the first badges produced ( 1956-1963 ) where made of a heavy brass alloy with hot enamel decoration. These badges are becoming increasingly hard to find and are sort after by collectors . Later badges where often stamped rather than cast and the enamel was replaced with painted decoration ,The relative cheapness of the production of these type of badges was considerably lower , as a result they where cheaper to purchase and thus more were produced But that's good for todays collectors as the price of these later badges tend be be between £5-£7.50. This make soviet space program badges and inexpensive hobby to suit all age groups.
PLEASE BE AWARE In recent year some badges, the original "heavy's" , are being copied and appearing for sale , please always check carefully before buying , make sure you are not paying a recent counterfeit .
if you have any question about collecting soviet space badges please message us.
