I purchased mine back in the 1970's and according to my records I purchased it for $60.00 Canadian.....

In Hern's book (# 178 - 2008) he has it listed as R8000 ($900.00 US) in a case and uncased R6000 ($668.00) but the case is not the original as I have shown.....

Well I bought mine in the 1980's, the cased one was about, £75.00, and the cased around £25.00, and as I said I sold an uncased one for £50.00 in the late 1980's. Do you think that's a bit excessive on e-bay.

Where's the best place to purchase a copy of Hern's book, as I've been looking for a copy for a while now.

Best regards,

Hello Breaker.....

I got my copy off the usual auction site and they show up there every so often..... I wonder if Kaplan or City Coins would have copies......

Another book that I really like is "Boer War Memorabilia, A Collectors Guide by Pieter Ooshuizen" that also shows up on ebay as well.....

I wonder if one of these CIV Medallions was in the big Spinks sale in 1999 and what It went for, am not home right now so cannot look.....

Hello Mike,
I am wondering, what do you think that these are really worth?
Regards Frank

Hi Frank.....

Normally I do not like to tell the value of items as there are many many variations that can contribute to value.......

But If I was to purchase another I would think between $1000.00 and $1200.00 is maximum that I would be willing to pay..... If it was in its original case......

Out of the case I don't think that I would be willing to pay any more than $600.00 to $700.00.......
