Legion Antiques

Viva la Legion
and welcome to
Legion Antiques

My name is Mike Sullivan and for many years I have collected militaria with a special interest in the French Foreign Legion, particularly the Legion’s badges which reflect the history, glory and traditions of this elite unit.

On my site you will find insignia from the common to the very rare for sale to help you either start a collection or find a rare, special item.

The insignia come from my personal collection acquired over many years.


The best way to reach me is via e-mail at mike@legionantiques.com with any  requests as it may take some time to catalog and photograph all my insignia and other items.

Please be specific re Legion insignia.

 I look forward to hearing from you.

Do not add any attachments to your e-mail as they will not be opened.

Do not hesitate to contact me for rare insignia which may not be listed. I do have available some very rare Legion badges.

Updates now include better, detailed photos. Please contact me for additional pics of any items. Note: photos are not to scale.

The main reference book I use is “Le Grande Livre des Insignes de la Legion Etrangere,” 1991, by Tibor Szecsko (thus the SZ reference). This was published in limited quantities by the Legion and is perhaps the best reference book for badges up to that time.

Also you may use Philippe Bartlett’s “Badges of the French Foreign Legion 1923-1989.”

Please check for regular updates
