Hmm, very odd. I put a bid in at £540 and got the lead which has since been beaten.
It's a great historical medal from D of L but will probably go for much bigger bucks!

540 was not going to work. I bid a lot more online when the catalogue first listed. I was the under bidder at 2000. The DoL Balloon medals have never been under 2000 pounds since about 2008 when I first started looking for one. I have been the under bidder many times! I was hoping the market had cooled.

That is disapointing.

I am not seeing any evidence that the market is cooling yet.

All part of the learning curve of the market for me.
How many QSA medals were actually issued to the balloon men of the Royal Engineers?
