  19. I think this would not be covered and if sold to a collector outside of Australia there would be no problems.But as this group is so complete and I would imagine one would not see a complete grouping again it will sell in Australia and from what I hear around the traps that it, and the other lots will more than likely end up at the AWM (Australian War Memorial) which is not a museum but it would be on show at some stage.I think our friend KS will be donating it once again like the VC's he has bought an donated to the AWM. Regards Rob
  20. Hi Kevin yes a lovely complete grouping ,I know of a least 3 collectors that would be hoping they could get them and 1 would be me they are the holy grail for us as a Navel group . Here is a link to the auction page http://www.noble.com.au/auctions/lot?id=311719 for others to view. Regards Rob
  21. If this is a complete group well you could be looking at approx $35K to $40K as there is one forsale in a auction in Australia at this price coming up in Nov. Rob
