  1. in regards to the first star I can confirm 3rd class I will try and post a reverse of the second class when I have scanned it in regards to the star with the gilded center this was never issued officially, as all stars carried the same centers which where enameled or coloured never plain, the difference is the wording on the back 1st class is very hard to find, 3rd class is easier, 2nd also not common I am lucky enough to have 7 x 3rd class and 2 x 2nd class in my collection and there is sight variations between some of them hope this helps regards

  10. I suppose living in the UK WW 1 medals are not as high in prices as Canada. I have picked up BWM Canadian Units for around 25 - 35 pounds, but have seen prices constantly pushing up over the last few years. Yes agree that looking at a certain unit, battle etc is the best way forward (something i wish I had done years ago) as there are so many options to choose from. End of the day its about the enjoyment of researching the medal and its owners history if you can as often there are great suprises to be had Caz
  11. I have been now collecting WW 1 medals for about 5 years and have, mostly British. along with Indian, SA, NZ and Canadian. Prices are some times reflective on what country and where they come from regardless of the unit in regards to prices on Victory medals at the end of the day will come down to what you are willing to pay. Corps such as RAMC, ASC will cost less than a front line infantry regiment. When you start looking at Yeomanry, Hussars, Lancers and Tank corps prices jump Like most people who collect WW 1 medals your personal price limit will depend on what area you want to concentrate on as and what the market demands There are certainly bargains out there, but like most medals prices have been slowly increasing Caz
