This rare group of Regional Commissioner, Deputy Regional Commissioner and District Commissioner car pennants and the gold armband for the most senior members of the Civil Defence recently sold at auction in Scotland. The hammer price was £2,000 and the buyer would also have all the other premiums, such as VAT, added to that (at auction that can be quite substantial).
There was also a wooden stock for Mauser C96, which if original, would also have driven the price up. It was a mistake for the items to be bundled together like this; the holster should have been sold separate to the Civil Defence items. Whether we see the pennants reappear on the market is to be seen.
