This chaps ABO is now in my collection.

Does anyone know how many medals were issued to this rank?

Thanks David - so my medal constitutes 33% of the market! In a semi-satisfying twist of fate, I learned that Grey's DTD was sold on BidorBuy in February 2018 and is now firmly ensconced in a collection in Devon. The current custodian and myself have been in communication with each other but, with neither party willing to budge at this stage, we have reached a stalemate.

It is good to know that the DTD is extant and in safe hands though - I append a photo or two of the medal as it was sent to me.



Regards

Rory
