Hi Mike,
I agree with everything you say here, I do like "Old Contemptables" as well, in this case, all good regts, the Black Watch too, and very nice to see with a QSA, but, I would , as a Boer War collector, put any medal to a Canadian first, in a Canadian unit or indeed an SAMIF unit, especially a Canadian Scout!
I do like this group, but, I had the conversation with Brett recently regarding the very high prices being paid for Great War medals, when you do the numbers, victorian medals do seem quite cheap!

To be quite honest, I really do like the ABO's you have shown on here in the last 24 hours, they are really very scarce indeed, you know Mike, I don't even think I have a single example to a bitter ender, I had always tried to buy them with something else, so I have ended up turning down a lot of really good ones, of course now, there are very few to be had here.

Regards Frank

Good Morning Everyone......

Here was my original posting in this thread.....

A Military Medal Group to Private Keane - Military Medal (32880 PTE, P. KEANE. 1-R.S. FUS.); Queen's South Africa Medal, CAPE COLONY, ORANGE FREE STATE, TRANSVAAL, SOUTH AFRICA 1902 (7287 PTE. P. KEANE. R. DUB. FUS.); 1914 Star, 1 Clasp - 5th AUG. - 22nd NOV. 1914 (3-3092 PTE. P. KEANE. R. HIGHRS.); British War Medal (3-3092 PTE, P. KEANE. R. HIGHRS.); and Victory Medal (unnamed). Naming is officially impressed on the first four medals. Court-mounted, with swing bar pinback, ready for wearing, light contact, near extremely fine. Accompanied by copies of the QSA Roll of Individuals (marked "Forfeited" in first column and "Red'd 2.5/07"), the London Gazette (January 28, 1918, p. 1390, citing his Military Medal).

Thanks to a posting on BMF I am now pleased to announce that the group has been reunited with his original Victory Medal.....
