Yes it is and again that is one of the reasons why I have trouble giving out values.....

There are many cases where I have put a bid in on something at what I think is a fair price plus a little more and get blown out of the water.....

It is what a person will pay..... A single BWM went on ebay the other day for over 200 Pounds......

Hello Mike,
Yes, I know what you mean, I once saw a single BWM sell for crazy money, but, the recipient of this particular medal had fallen victim to the guns of Werner Voss. :(
Regards again Frank

Yes, there were 11 items to the CIV at that Christie's sale in October 1999 and one of those was a cased CIV medallion, it was estimated between £400.00 to £500.00 and was finally sold for £460.00 plus their commission.

In fact the reason why it was so high, was it was engraved around the rim to "The Ancient & Hon. Artillery Company of Boston"

The two days sale was quite an event, I often look at the catalogue. I bought a QSA to a CIV member at the same sale.

you mention Pieter Ooshuizen's book on Boer War Memorabilia, I have a number of items show in the book in my collection.

Yes it is sort of my unofficial bible on Boer War Collectables and I have two copies..... One he gave to me and autographed and one that I check off the items as I find them if they are in the book..... He used to have a store in London but when I went there in November I was told he had passed away.....
