I bought my ticket to the Sunday medal fair recently.

Who will be in Nottingham this year?

A busy start to the burse today.

Many familiar faces here. Sadly, many families QSAs too. Zero bargains so far.

Good Morning David

Looks like there is room between the isles so that at least you can get around.....

Mike,

There was lots of room and the queues of people waiting to move to the front of the line to gaze into the display cases was less than in past years. Whether this was because dealers’ displays were spread over a wider area or there were less people I am not sure.

It was though a great opportunity to meet up with fellow collectors.

My only purchase was a Paardeberg clasp for the Anglo Boer War Museum.

Picture courtesy of DCM Medals

This medal was appealing but not at £785

899 Tpr: D.T.Sharp. Imp. Lt. Horse

The write-up gives his name as David Tool Sharp. Surely not?

I was actually rather disappointed, it all seemed a little thin on the ground, really good medals appear to be increasingly difficult to find these days and I ended up buying nothing whatsoever significant, sadly a wasted day.
