Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

The Reynolds artifacts were sold for 16000 GBP, 26000 below what the present owner paid for them. The William Jones badges went for 2800 GBP, around 2000 less than the present buyer paid.

Cheers

The Reynolds artifacts seem cheap to me - when you put them in the context of a SAGs to a RD defender at £25-30K.

i am not sure that there was enough provenance on the badges to warrant the expense - unless I was missing something.

That will teach me not to read the full description before posting a comment on here - in which case I retact my previous comment and say someone has  got a bargain.

Salute

Gentlemen in view of these woefully low prices do we need to look at reducing stock levels? Those are frightening figures really.

i think part of this is the Auction house and its reach. I suspect the reynolds lot would have done significantly better at DNW.

Maybe the bubble of rising pricies has burst - I know Tasker always worried about it - I just dont see it yet.

Hi Sergio.
I do tend to agree , DNW more than likely would've reached a larger audience . Certainly two bargains had by someone .
Cheers 90th.
