I see the group to Captain Cyril Hamilton DSO failed to attract any bidders on BoB.

This is quite a special group but is it 7300 GBP special is the question? This is the quantum one expects to pay for an Isandhlwana casualty or survivor.

I always maintain that an item finds its level on the open market - this group has been for sale on Bid or Buy several times in the past couple of weeks with not so much as a nibble - perhaps it is priced too high? I offered R 100 000 through a "go between" and this was spurned with alacrity.

Time will tell

Just relisted at R99 950, still high but this vendor has the same overpriced items week after week listed, that's my opinion.

This group and other medals he has been pedaling come out of the collection of a well-known Psychiatrist in the Pietermaritzburg area. This gent has, by all accounts, been ailing for some time and must have entered into an arrangement with this vendor.
