Very nice indeed, I would be very pleased with both the medals and the restoration.

He is certainly skilled and he has original clasps, do you remember a couple of decades or so ago, he used to list very many rare and original clasps in his gazette.

I do remember those final few pages of his catalogues listing the clasps.

Chris is a very good friend of mine and I can attest to his first class work! I'd go to him first to have anything repaired.

It is certainly interesting to note the price of the medal at the bottom of the page, when compared to the others!

Hello David,
I am wondering what are Chris's rivets are like, are they virtually in distinguishable from those produced at Woolwich?
Regards Frank
