Sold for £510.

A good price actually - one like this would normally go for twice that.

Can't win 'em all, TB.
Perhaps a cheeky bid would have been in order! Sorry I didn't leave one. Salute

They did and good luck to them. I hope it is a young collector starting out.
Sure Peters would have seen no action in SA in 1877,8 or 9 and he would not have known or had any association with the iSandlwana men. However, these medals usually go for 800 - 1100.

Me too, but they do, even ones like this of later draft replacements who didn't even get to the cape until March 1879.
I can more understand the 1877-8-9 clasp medals to men who were at Helpmekaar and had fired their weapons in the earlier campaigns.
