Hi 90th, yes. But we don't need the medal roll when we have you around! Besides, the missus has ring fenced the money and put me down for top dressing duty and has vetoed the medal roll with her casting vote. I have accepted her decision with good grace as I am in the dog house at the mo' in any case.
Still, a very desirable medal. The medal's condition is not too important to me as long as the name on the rim is legible and original.
The battered state of this example and the brooching is all part of its history. At least it wasn't returned to the mint and as you say it is one of only 11 in existence.
I will PM you.

I am out at £150. Already up to £175 with a few days to go.
See, the rarity is of interest and value, even in that condition! I reckon it'll go for at least £300.

One of only 11 medals to this unit - and they are not issuing any more of them!
