While researching a Metropolitan Police 1902 Coronation, I found and contacted the recipient's great-grand-daughter, who has her own blog on this man. I decided to offer to sell it back to the family, as I already have several of that medal. Her response was amusing:
Thank you for your offer. I would be happy to buy the medal at the price you quote. My husband is wary about me buying from someone over the internet so I googled you and see that you are a leading light in your church in Oakville, which has helped reassure him
Sometimes virtue is not its only reward.
