We did. But LH takes the information from EBay and records in on here. Just incase it's sold and disappears from the public eye. The forum still has a record.

Hi Nitro
I can tell you there wouldn't be much change from $ 17 - 18 K AUD if it was being sold by Dixons , Liverpool Medals and other on-line Medal dealers . Would probably cost more from Auction Sites like DNW or Spink's due to Hammer Tax , Insurance
and other sundry add on fees ! .

Went for 1495 quid, quite reasonable by all accounts, but a little high for me. Sad

Hi Nitro
I was put off by the cheap price !, I believe the seller thought it to be the real thing , hard to tell in the photo's , but I didn't see anything that was obviously wrong , or fake . I spoke to a dealer who thought the '' 1 / 24th '' wasn't quite right . I most certainly respect this dealers opinion. If it's the real thing , and very possibly might be ! , someone has procured the Medal buy of all time ! Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked . I think there may have been more frenzied bidding had the Medal been sitting at 6 or 7 K !!! , as strange as that may seem ! Shocked
