  5. Guys, i have been sent photos of a Waterloo medal, which has been stamped on the silver ring and on the rim of the medal (above the I in Wellington) the owner of the medal thinks that they are Dutch import duty marks.......what do you guys think of them? The medal appears to have been renamed to G PORTEGIES 2ND HUSSARS KGL was this man on the Waterloo medal roll?, is it an original medal or a later silver copy with the marks on ring and rim simply marking it as silver? I look forward to hearing you opinions! cheers dan
  6. Hi chaps Recently recieved this. It came from the house of a distant relative of my Wife, whose family were involed in the uprising and lived in Rathfarnham / Rathmines Road in the early part of this century. Its a lovely little pin in silver. No makers mark or hall mark. The Aero Association was a fore-runner of the Irish Air Corps, and they were called upon to aid and arrange for the possible rescue of Michael Collins from the Anglo-Irish Treaty talks of 1921, thus forming the embryonic Irish Air Corps. A Martinsyde Type A Mark II biplane was purchased and put on 24-hour standby at Croydon airport in order to allow him to escape back to Ireland if the talks failed. In 1922 there were just 400 member of the IAC. This is all the information I have at the moment. Can anyone help? Cheers Dan

    Campaign medal ribbons

    They are definately undercollected! What ever you do DONT try and clean them! Ribbons of over 100 years in age will not take kindly to any kind of cleaning, particularly british silk ribbons! I have ruined several sets in my time.... Dan

    More Insanity?

    I have noticed over recent years that items ending on either a Sunday evening or Thursday evening always seen to do better than those ending on other days of the week. I took this to be due to people having more free time to have a play about on ebay on these days. Since noticing this trend I began to solely list my items between 7.30pm and 9pm on a Sunday, ending at the same time the following week, and have realised an increase of up to 35% in the prices my things have achieved.

  14. I think its a nice item Windu - well done. What will you buy next? Dan
