    Staybrite Military Shoulder Titles for sale

    Staybrite (electro-plated Anodised Aluminum) began to replace the traditional metals used for British military uniform badges from about 1950 and is still used.  We buy and sell original Staybrite shoulder titles worldwide by mail order via our secure website.

    Due to established practice and customer preference, our stock is sold without fastenings such as split pins, clutch grips or back-plates, however these are (usually) available separately.

    Shoulder titles are sold as single items.  This is because our main business is with insignia for collectors, and collectors tend only to want single examples.  The other factor is that we might only stock a single example, particularly of older rarer items.

    We recommend the following book:

    Westlake, R. 1997. Collecting Metal Shoulder Titles. ISBN 0850525055: Leo Cooper.
    This is an excellent book with black and white photographs of over 1800 British Army metal shoulder titles, and descriptions of many more. Each badge is numbered and the numbers are used by dealers and collectors as the 'industry-standard' to refer to shoulder titles. If you are going to buy British Army shoulder titles by mail order, then you need this book.
