I think if you can actually find something you want on ebay that you are going to be happy with, it is certainly , ultimately worth pursuing given you are not having to pay twenty percent plus VAT that can be expected in provincial salerooms these days.

The QSA to Ward sold for £268 which is a very good price.

Agreed, on the face of it, certainly a pleasing medal.
