Good Evening Frank......

I have quite a few.....

I have been picking them up when ever I saw them ever since I decided to limit my collection to Boer War items over 35 years ago.....

I am retired now and on a fixed income and it got to the point where the medals that I wanted were getting above my pocket book so I started to collect them more and more as they were a lot cheaper than the medals, not so now thanks to ebay......

This medallion was $18.00 in silver and $10.00 in bronze when I purchased them now the latest one that I have seen on ebay $322.00 US in white metal.....

I also have a large collection of books, china, tins, paper, pictures, badges, souveniers and basically anything related......

There is a fantastic guide entitled Boer War Memorabilia by Pieter Oosthuizen, published in 1987, ISBN 0-946619-19-0..... It showes up on ebay occasionally.....
