PostSubject: Over priced survivor medal   Isandlwana Survivor Medal  EmptySat Nov 22, 2014 7:52 am

Hi 90th,
Hope all is well downunder.
Agreed, the price of that medal is exhorbitant and the seller is a chancer. Overpricing by some 5 fold 
The damaged and repaired suspension takes the value down too. 
I seriously question their "citation" too  as they were unable to spell ; ; ie Dumford, Pullin, Dinckleman, IsandHlwana, Matitzburg and Double Mountain? etc, etc, the question is begged : what else did they get wrong?.

regards

barry

90th

Thanks for posting this link. I have been looking for a Newcastle Mounted Rifles medal for a long time, but specifically one to a man who was with Major Dartnell on his patrol. I already have such medals to the Natal Mounted Police, Natal Carbineers, and Buffalo Border Guard, and one to the NMR would complete the set to the mounted Colonial element on the Dartnell patrol. In theory at least, such medals are a lot less expensive than those to men killed in action and the escapers. Also in theory, there should be 21 medals to the NMR who were on patrol.

Regards
Brett

Hi Barry
Yes mate all is well here , hopefully it's going well for you also ? . I wouldnt be surprised if the medal goes for nearly what an Imperial Casualty would bring ! . It's indeed a rare medal and unit to have . I've been a bit over the top recently , so dont have the Ammo to launch an assault on it , although I'd like to have it in my collection Shocked
Hi Brett
Your collection sounds very interesting , I'm intrigued as to the details of your collection . Feel free to send me a pm regarding your collection and I'll do likewise with mine if you wish ? . Salute
Cheers 90th

Hi 90th

yes I saw this medal and was excited at first glance , But was put off by the state of it , broached and reconstituted.

The question of value vs a casualty is interesting. IS their more worth in a medal that was handed to to a relative - vs a medal that was touched and worn with pride by someone who actually witnessed, fought and survived the battle.

Its an interesting debate. I saw the other casualty medals - but have my eye on a nice couple of Abu Klea pairs so not for me this auction.

However, the Colonel Collingwood group is interesting -I might have a cheeky bid on it but suspect it will price outside my budget if I am successful in the Abu Kleas

Cheers
