I am astounded by the asking price! I fear that my ignorance of the commercial aspects of medal collecting has resulted in a great disservice to the widow of a recently dead friend. I arranged the sale of part of his medal collection and initially the sale was limited to local collectors, although the list soon travelled abroad. One of the items sold was a QSA/Kimberley Star pair to a KTG man. The medals are in excellent condition and the Star has both suspension bars. It was sold for R6000 (360 gbp) to a local collector with a particular interest in the Kimberley Siege. Later, I will tell him of his great good fortune and in the meantime I am red-faced and have some explaining to do to the beneficiary of the sale.

Have I woken up in the future?

When did these become so valuable, especially to the TG or is there something about this man we don't know?

Makes one wonder what a medal to De Beers Maxim Battery would be worth!
