DNW Lot 79, 30 March 2011. QSA (1) Belfast (4136 Pte. A. Watson, 1 Leic. Regt.). Sold for £270

DNW Lot 137, 25 June 2008. QSA (1) Belfast (4819 Pte. C. H. Day, 18/Hrs.). Sold for £110

DNW Lot 281, 4 December 2001. QSA (1) Belfast (6172 Pte. T. Brown, Rifle Brigade). Sold for £45

DNW Lot 111, 4 December 1991. QSA (1) Belfast (3364 Pte. A. Griffin, 18/Hrs.). Sold for £50


A good example of caveat emptor, only one of these is a genuine single clasp Belfast QSA; Pte Watson 1 Leicester Rgt. Day and Griffin earned other clasps and Brown wasn't even there.

Mike - nice medal, a difficult single clasp to find, I have recorded 63 examples so far.

I would have no problems here, unless of course DNW, or indeed any saleroom or dealer, actually claimed that the said single Befast clasp, was a given recipients sole entitlement, it is just so easy to check anyway.
Moreover, this is very clearly reflected in the prices that these four actually sold for.

The QSA to 4159 Pte. W. Muckersie, 10th Hussars).

Private William Muckersie, 10th Hussars, died of disease at Rustenberg, 24 December 1900. The published casualty roll lists him as ‘Mackersie’ in the 9th Lancers. Believed to be just 9 single ‘Belfast’ clasps to the regiment.

This is an intriguing QSA as I have yet to locate him on the QSA rolls. I have found his KSA (2) on the 3rd Btn rolls. The catalogue entry is silent on the entitlement.

Queen's South Africa 1899-1902, one clasp, Belfast (3835 Corpl: W. Clayton. Leicester: Regt.), nearly very fine, scarce. 3835 Sergeant W. Clayton, M.M., served in South Africa with 1st Battalion, Leicestershire Regiment as Militia Reserve; subsequently served with the 3rd Battalion, attached 1st Battalion during the Great War, and awarded the Military Medal (London Gazette 27.10.1916).

Morning David,
Unable to find the QSA also, as you just the KSA

Paul,

I had a quick look through the roll too thinking he may be missing/incorrect in the index but still no look.

Should the catalogue have listed his QSA as unconfirmed/awaiting confirmation perhaps?
