hi Dave .
I"m with you , why would you bother , If it goes for say 120 quid , why not save for a few months and buy a real
medal with a clasp . If you look hard enough you may pick up one for 450 quid. I dont see the sense in it . Rolling Eyes

90th, when you say 'real medal with a clasp' do you mean what you say (one with a clasp) or is this not real or worth that sort of money?
Only ask as i'm no expert in this.

PostSubject: erased medal.   Sun May 30, 2010 4:07 am

hi David68.
The medal is stated as original I have no qualms about that , but , all details have been erased from the rim , so it
makes it impossible to know who"s it was in the first place , secondly all medals without clasps were only awarded to
those who didnt serve in zululand itself , so in my way of thinking I would rather own a medal awarded to someone who
was actually in " Enemy Territory " and entitled to have a clasp . Then the other theory applies if you have no way of
affording a named medal with clasp , then this is your best option of buying an original medal. It is purely up to one's
own financial status , personally I would want a named medal complete with clasp so I would be prepared to save long
and hard to achieve this goal . But , each to his own as they say . Idea Hope this makes sense . :)
cheers 90th.
