Morning Everyone

A sad end to this medallion. After purchasing this from a JHB dealer, it was despatched using Speed Services door to door. Item was shipped on Wednesday and I received parcel on Thursday. The A4 size white padded envelope was tampered with and so was the inner brown envelope. The medallion was stolen and all I received was an empty envelope that was stapeled together.

You can imagine how I felt when I saw it was empty.
