not that rare - and certainly not that expensive - nice looking medal but way over the odds price wise

Hi Sergio.
Agreed , this seller does have a record of selling these Medals at way over the price but
people do seem to buy them . I've had some discussion with this seller in the past , lets say I'm
not impressed with their knowledge of the zulu war , and not keen on their summary either, it's the same summary
with just the battle's name changed if need be ! . Stating that
this chap fought at Gingindlovhu , I'd like to know how they know that ?? . It's guesswork at best isnt it ? . I remember they had a Medal to
a chap from the 2 / 4th Regt their summary stating that the Regt fought in some of the most ferocious battles
of the war , I told them the 2 / 4th werent involved in any of the battles !! . Their reply was '' Did they see any action at all ''.
I answered their question , and they never changed their sales pitch and someone did actually buy it !!!!!! . Medals to the 57th
can be a little hard to find , but they arent what you'd call rare , Medals to the 80th & 58th are rare , arent they Sergio ? .and to finish it is overpriced Salute .
Cheers 90th. Salute
