Spink are relisting the QSA (4) RoM DoK OFS Tr to James Bolitho, KLH, which they sold for a hammer price of £1,700 two years ago.

Why their estimate is £260-£300 now is not clear.

Spink seem to have trouble cataloguing this medal. Two years ago they stated the clasps included Defence of Mafeking. This time they have transposed the first two clasps and listed Relief of Kimberley rather than Defence of Kimberley.
