A very rare pair has just sold on eBay, a QSA and SILVER O'Okiep medal.

Despite quite a few people trying the seller, the British Heart Foundation, did not relist them together. I doubt they even check eBay messages.

I bought the QSA but someone else got the O'Okiep. I put in such high bids I thought it was guaranteed but clearly not.

Was it you? If so let's get them together. I am happy to pass the QSA to you.

This is the one:

The bidding history on the O'okiep medal is fascinating:

Sorry, but it's not me either, I did not bid, but watched the final stages of the auctions and the eye-watering price the O'okiep realised.
Good luck with the reunite. If I hear who it was who won I will pass on your comments.

And I have found the dealer who bought it. We are in discussions as to how to proceed. They are really friendly. So one way or another the pair is going to stay together!
