  1. Those enamel center badges can go for $400++, depending if there were any cracks in it. I sold one a few years back with a perfect center and it went for, if I remember right, $425. I have another but wish I still kept that one. They are so hard to find.

    As far as the 'female' SP badge I've seen males wearing them. I was a in 82-86 as a medic. I posted a picture somewhere with a male SP wearing one. I also have a few of thos badges and it doesnt specify female on the label.
