I think that £320 is an awful lot of money, in particular, when you have the additional cost of obtaining original clasps as well as the work needed for it's restoration.

There's one to the Devons on eBay at the moment too:


Biggins has it listed as sold in 2003 by Liverpool.

Not sure why the seller considers it to be "rare" to have Elandslaagte and Defence of Ladysmith clasps on the same medal.:unsure:

Just joined the forum today but been reading for a month or so; has made me take a renewed interest in some of the medals in my collection that have been gathering dust for too long (as for all medal collectors, I presume, sometimes other things in life distract away from our fascinating hobby).
I have quite a lot of QSAs but only one with an Elandslaagte clasp. Here it is:
QSA five bars Elandslaagte, D of L, OFS, Trans, Laings Nek.
Natal, bar 1906
201 Tpr HF Schwegmann, Natal MR

I bought it in 1993 from Glendining's

Any comments gratefully received

A very pleasing medal to actually have in any Anglo Boer War collection, I note the infamous cross next to his name in WO100/363.
