If you fancy a cheap Zulu War Medal, this one is going cheap as someone has drilled a hole in the clasp.

hi 24th.
The only clasps available are copies , you can buy them on ebay . You would need to take it to a medal dealer to
have the replacement clasp fitted. it seems they are moulded and fastened.

Gaves1879 The medal never sold. I thought it was at £18.00. Just looked No bids.

Hi Chelmsfordthescapegoat

You are correct again as it did have bids on it, I do not know what is going on here Suspect

1879Graves.

Can you think of any reasons why the medal might have been withdrawn. (Was there a reserve in-place)

hi all.
This is very reasonable , but he didnt cross into zululand that is why there is no clasp.

Hi Admin

There was no reserve in-place, It looks like he withdrew it just before the end as it was only at £18.00 and did not want to sell the medal at that low price.

Suspect

hi 1879graves,
I didnt think you could withdraw an item from ebay once people had placed bids, but im not
exactly clear on ebay"s policies. It would have been a great bargain for 18 quid.
cheers 90th.

Hi 90th

As a seller, you can withdraw from selling if your reason is you have mis-listed your item and you inform Ebay. People use this option if they do not get enough money for their goods. Ebay know this is a fault but this is the only way to protect the seller from mis-selling an item and getting into trouble.

:lol!: I was one of those people who had placed a bid on this medal, just in case it went cheap. :lol!:
