Jim,

That sounds very annoying. Will you query that with them?

Hi David,
I won’t waste my time, I have queried them before without success.
Looks as though I will have to use Invaluable next time.

That is an interesting analysis. There is no shortage of Boer War material at the moment so collectors are able to pick and choose more so than is usual.

I thought some of NN's estimates were high and this may have put people off? For example, DNW sold a no clasp QSA to a Captain in the Rand Rifles last month for a hammer price of £100 whereas NN estimated their Lieutenant's no clasp QSA, both having no biographical information, at £200. That said, this medal did sell and for £150.


The QSA to McDonald may well have been a "sleeper".
Whilst not spending much time researching (especially after the horse has bolted). There was a H.C McDonald who won an MC with the 10th Northumberland Fusiliers in WW!. If indeed it is the same chap, a good price I would have thought (excluding the possibility of a reunite) - extra special price.
The Australian Market is rather fickle these days, many factors come into play with NN.

NN have published the preface to sale 125 (24-27 Nov 2020) and say 'The military medals section includes many significant singles and groups available, including part 5 of the late W (Bill) Woolmore Collection which features a large number of Anglo-Boer War medals to South African Colonial units.'

The catalogue is due soon.
