Look on rim if there is a name. That would mean he was a South African.

Looks like he fought in both wars if all four belong to same person.

The buyers will determine the price.

R1 auction gets the most exposure and you will definately get the right price.

or enter under Military and do advertise.

Hi geewhizz

 

I looked and there is no name and also think this person fought in both wars because of the dates shown. I will put in up soon and see what happens.

 

thank you kindly.

here you are. The best one is the 30 pound medal but this price is in a dated book so I would think it is more like 100 pounds now

Go for R1 and you will do well. I find it strange that there is no name on the rims because the medal in the last picture is South African

It could be a WW! British soldier who lived in South Africa later.

Often though when medals were stolen they scratched the name off so that they could not be identified.

Like from "Bag ladies"

One of these (The last photo sold on bidorbuy for R251 which is very low.

There is another one up for 85 pounds on internet.I am sure it is worth at least R500 considering it has other medals with it.

There are medals missing though---oh no I am wrong here

Would R1000 asking price for all be ok or is that too high?

The book gives the prices as 8 pounds 12 pounds 8 pounds and 30 pounds=58 pounds. This book is 1994 so double at least

R1000 is not excessive but are there no names on the outside rim??

I would still enter on R1 Wed but if you dont want to take the risk dont.

I have this huisgenoot magazine from 1938 0n the Wed crazy and was going to list it for R250 on ordinary--Go see

nope nothing there too. I asked another friend who also deals in these items and he said there might be 2 generations involved here and each was killed in the wars.

Anything is possible. Because the South Africans were presented with the identical medals as the British--Remember we were a Union-- I think the reason the names were inscribed on the South African medals was to distinquish between the SA soldier and the British. The British medals are not engraved with names.

This is why I find it strange that the medal for voluntary service has no name as it is South African.
