Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hi Chaps

The person listing this medal has listed the incorrect name. He should have listed it as C. Allport not Callport.

1236 C. Allport, Private, 80th.

This goes to show how easy it is to mislead or get things wrong, shame it was listed with a high price, someone could have got a cheap medal.

Hi 1879graves.
Actually 200 quid is still very cheap considering it is framed and it also has a glengarry badge .
If the badge is an original it alone is worth 90 - 110 quid !!!. The price of the medal should be
465 - 485 quid, this also depends on the condition of the medal , better the condition , the more
it is worth .These medals are increasing in price , the 465 -485 price is the lowest you will pay for
an 1879 clasp, they increase in price with for instance , the clasp 1877-78-79 you can expect to pay 590 - 640
depending on the regt. Colonial medals which are of 1879 clasp are cheaper than the imperials on average by 50 - 60 quid . Naval medals are more expensive than the imperial forces with the 1879 clasp by on average 50 -70 quid.
cheers 90th.

I ask the seller to send me photographs of the medal, they were very helpful and did send them.

We can now see how easy it is to mis-list a listing, the blue arrow show you the FULL STOP which they missed.

hi 1879graves.
In reply to your question whether it was a cheap purchase , no , that is about what you can expect to pay for a medal
with the 1879 clasp to imperial troops, if you are asking about the combined sale of the medal , display case and glengarry badge ( if original) ,
the answer then becomes , YES ,. As i previously posted in regard to this sale , if the badge is an ORIGINAL and not a re-strike.
They are not easy to come by , and they can be anything from 65 - 150 quid, depending on the regt, the 60th regt glengarry"s
seem to be the least expensive . The 24th can be around 100-120 quid, for some reason the 90th badges are nearly impossible
to find and they would be 120 and up if one came on the market. Going back to zulu war medals for a moment , i know of one
for sale to a chap from H.M.S SHAH it is 1879 clasp and the price is 650 quid which is average for a naval medal, as they are
more expensive. hope this helps.
cheers 90th
