Found this on ebay, can anyone be certain this medal is and original and was given to the named person because it is a very reasonable price for four medals

PostSubject: the four medals   AFRICA SERVICE MEDAL NAMED TO 57.SJT.R.LEWIS.3-K.A.RIF EmptyTue Jun 01, 2010 7:09 am

hi littlehand.
The G is the last letter as the corps is the Lydenburg Rifles , R.R.LEWIS isnt on the roll but a J.R. is on the roll , along with S. Lewis. The Lydenburg Rifles didnt actively take part against the zulus , they may have been involved against Morosi or Sekukuni.
I am sure someone will fill in my gaps. :) The zulu medal doesnt look in the best condition . According to the Medal Roll 106
medals were Issued clasp 78-79 4 clasp 79 102 = 106 of which 47 medals and clasps were returned to Woolwich Mint.
Hope this helps.
cheers 90th.

hi all.
I dont know what price the other medals should be , but , the 1879 medal would be valued at between 400 - 435 quid
I would expect . Dont forget the Lydenburg Rifles didnt actually take part in the zulu war itself , or not to my knowledge .

hi 90th,
Both the Allied Victory Medal and the The British War Medal are fairly common as around 6 million of them were made and issued so they are really floating around everywhere, I have both of them myself, so I wouldnt expect them to be worth very much, my guess would be around 50.00 definatley under 100.00 thanks joe

I agree with Joe, have these myself. Very common. £50 sounds about right.
