I just thought that you might be interested to note that there is a cased CIV medallion on sale on e-bay for £1,095.00 post and packing is free. I've attached the link is anyone's interested.

TheBreaker,

The CIV medal has attracted no bids so far. Would would be a reasonable bis for this item?

With thanks

Well, I have two examples in my collection, but cased and uncased, but that's a lot, even considering how rare they are.
I bought mine a long while ago, I even sold a spare for £50.00 way back in the late 1980's.

What would you reasonably pay?

Best regards,
