All the AZW medals went high I thought. Even those without the clasp or earlier clasps were higher than estimate by a fair way. I thought the estimates generally across the board were way off. I bid on one AZW medal, Bickerstaff's, over estimate and only missed out by around 300 quid !!! Shocked

Pedro
The estimates are always at least half what the SAGS medal generally sell for , the Campaign Group Wednesday to Rooke HMS Euphrates wasn't overly expensive it went for 700 GBP's , the Unclasped SAG , Egypt Medal & Khedives Star . I don't have a KDG's SAGS so I was also looking at Bickerstaff myself , the edge bruise turned me off , and it went for 800 before Hammer Tax and the other charges .

You are obviously a wealthier man than me !! I just put my limit on and hoped for the best. I have a couple of medals so they will have to do me for the moment. Very Happy
