Hi Graves

I agree, too many if's and but's. The clasp question is interesting though. Originally 1877-8 on his papers, then crossed out with 79 added in a different hand. The medal roll has him ticked in both the 1877-8 and 1879 boxes, and Norman Holme gives him the full clasp. I wonder if something went awry and he was a bit miffed, so replacing the medal. Wonder what it will go for!

His Rusteze

It looks like he was mistaken for another Norris on his records, hence the mistakes recording his clasp?
Happy to be corrected.
Look at the other half of this page of his service record.

I bet this medal will find a home as someone will not research it to the full.

Renamed medals? I would be rather dubious of any renamed medals.

In renaming a medal, does it involve reducing the original diameter of the medal to get rid of the old name, then renaming it with the new name, if so, a keen eye would spot the reduced diameter of the medal and would realise that it was not the original would they not, or is there some other process used to rename a medal?

Come on Gary, own up, have you never been tempted to have a iSandlwana or RD medal in your collection Rolling Eyes Very Happy Merry Christmas

Martin

If you read the advertisement you will see that the seller gives the reduced diameter of the medal, caused by the skimming of the original name and the subsequent re-naming. He is being honest about it, which is not always the case.

It's difficult to see with the naked eye - you really need an original to compare alongside. More often the giveaway is the new lettering style, or the faint remains of the original name, or a reduced or uneven lip on the circumference of the medal. Can be quite legitimate of course, if the original is lost. But caveat emptor is the rule. Too tempting to fake with high value medals, and few straight campaign medals come at higher values than these!

Hi Steve.

Thanks for clerifying that, and to be honest, I hadn't read the description, but had noticed that there are a number of renamed medals that keep cropping up from time to time, and it made me wonder if there was some way of renaming without reducing the diameter. Like you say mate, reducing the diameter must alter the circumference which results in an uneven or reduced lip.

Gary knows that I was only pulling his leg about having one of his medals renamed to either an iSandlwana or an RD one, I think that the old wombat is far too much an honest gentleman to lower himself to doing something like that agree

Cheers mate.

Hi Martin
The only version I know is politically incorrect , so it's not used anymore ( or any less ! Very Happy ) . I'm sure you'd know of it ?
The one you posted is probably much more modern ? , I'm certain you would know the one I'm referring to ? scratch scratch
