Quite frankly, despite the awful ribbon, £230 is very little for a medal that was earned by a recipient actually losing his life in a most unpleasant way, he did not have to do that, he was a member of the Natal Volunteers and not a conscript, I would certainly have been prepared to pay very considerably more for a medal like that.
I hate the basic concept of putting a price on a brave mans life, but, that is part of collecting medals, all I can say, is in my opinion at least, it is certainly worth rather more.
