Amazing Lifetime Collection of 296 Original WW1 & WW2 Campaign Medals, Including Numerous Territorial Medals, Two Mons Stars, Two Long Service Good Conduct Medals,and A Boer War Medal
Only just priced today!. This Is a truly amazing collection, and could yield incredible results for a collector who either just wants to research the medals that can be researched, re-create the groups and sets from them, or even for a militaria dealer who wants to open up the market opportunity by acquiring 296 medals, plus 24 miniature medals, and 30 original, mostly named, recipients boxes, in one fell swoop, saving years of work trying to buy them individually. We are pricing them for likely a third of their eventual price. They could even achieve a great amount more over time, by selling individually, PLUS! with this weeks current 20% discount they represent an even further massive saving, the price [including discount for this week] is barely £14 each, and for some medal groups, that could be worth comfortably over £100 for a pair or trio, it becomes, a fabulous long term collection opportunity. They were bought by the collector in the 1950's and 60's. For example one boxed set is for a WW2 RAF Squadron Leader, with research these alone could be worth hundreds of pounds. There are groups, trios, pairs and singles. WW1 regimental medals, good and rare regiments, [all named as usual], WW2 medals, and most campaign stars, such as 1939-45, France and Germany, Italy, Africa, Pacific, Burma [unnamed as usual] unless boxed, plus numerous territorial medals [most named]. Most of the boxed medals have never been mounted or worn, all in their original boxes, all are groups of up to 6 medals. The collection contained hundreds, of all original issue medals, 99% British, all in stored and uncleaned condition, from the Boer War up to the 1950's. Numerous original miniature groups. A campaign medal is a military decoration which is awarded to a member of the military who serves in a designated military operation or performs duty in a geographical theatre. Campaign medals are very similar to service medals but carry a higher status as the award usually involves deployment to a foreign region or service in a combat zone. Campaign medals were first invented to recognize general military service in war, in contrast to meritorious decorations which were only issued on a small scale for acts of heroism and bravery. The first widespread use of campaign medals dates to the era of the Napoleonic Wars when Napoleon Bonaparte ordered a large number of ribbons and medals for issue to the soldiers serving under his command.
