I remember back to past DNW auctions when Oliver would start the sale of a lot by saying 'You can forget the estimates on this one ..' and then begin the bidding at a level exceeding the top estimate. At Spink yesterday, Iain would often say something along the lines of 'There is a lot of interest in this item' which would lead to a sinking feeling, there would be a pause but then he would start the bidding at £65. This was the case with the Lydenburg QSA and bidding ceased only a few increments later.

I hear the person who bought it was very happy.

From City Coins, August 2011

CGHGSM (2) Transkei, Basutoland (Pte. J. Keeley Laudreys H.) (engr. Cape naming, disc not skimmed);
QSA (1) Transvaal (3 Constable J. Kelly Lydenburg M.P.)

James Kelly served in Landrey’s Horse to qualify with a late claim for his 2-bar medal: there obviously was bad handwriting involved when the medal was sent to the local Cape Town jewellers for engraving. During the Boer War he was not a policeman, but, according to the QSA roll of the Lydenburg Mounted Police, he “always volunteered his services and did very good work” (12 medals to unit).
