Hello David,
From my experience, stars originally claimed by members of this regiment tend to have a "C" hallmark, but, the only time that I feel it to be "right" is when the recipient had bothered to have his named engraved onto it.
Of course anybody can just make up a group or pair anyway. :(
Kind regards Frank

Frank,

It is not often that you see engraved Kimberley Stars and I was trying to think of these how many I had seen to LNLR. Not many I would imagine.

I would quite like to see the naming of this QSA to Pte P Dreyer, KTG as the rim looks very thin. He also served in the KLH and earned DoK, OFS & Tr.

Hello David,
It might be okay, but, always best to be on your guard as far as naming goes, I cannot remember the last time I actually bought a Kimberley Star, let alone a named one, although, I think it might have been one to a member of the Kimberley Regiment, I'll have to have a look tomorrow, my bed time now so I will bid you goodnight!
Regards Frank

Hello David,
A scarce medal it seems to have been in the market place a great deal, I hope it has now found a longterm home.

It used to be in my collection for a while and I would happily have it back.
