After a local, advanced collection started to get parted out, I couldn't let these three pretties get away. All three had thick urethane on them (the collector who had them probably dipped these in the 1950' or so) and after a little acetone, they cleaned up to look like they do now. 

First, the two versions of the Boxer Rebellion Relief Medal, these were a sight more affordable than their American counterparts (which I still lack and will likely lack for quite a while).

To cap it off, another Südwest Afrika Medaille, complete with a bit of Kaiser Centennial ribbon to bolster the mount. I had to be careful to not get any acetone close to the ribbon so it was done with a cotton swab, I'll complete the job eventually.
