An interesting medal, two eighty on the hammer seems a bargain these days.

Quite frankly, David, I really do think that shows what a bargain two eighty was, notwithstanding, any additional charges, it would certainly have delighted me anyway, but, in all honesty, Gary Neate had lived in South Africa for many years and had both the contacts and the knowledge to be able to determine what might have been a scarce piece and something that was clearly not, I have to say that I do miss his presence in the market place today, both as a dealer and more importantly, as a friend.
