This is my first post on this site and I must say the articles are quite interesting to read. On a visit to Ireland last year I took the walking tour of 1916. It's actually pretty interesting. I started collecting Irish memorabilia from that era. I have some stamps, the Pearse coin, a few record albums and books and have recently acquired a War of Independence (Black and Tan) medal, together with a 1921-71 Survivors medal. I think it would be great to have a B/T with Comrac, A Rising medal and others from that era. Besides Ebay, and you really have to do your homework, are there other good sources from which to purchase something like this and what is the going rate. I know there are auctions and such. What about dealers in Dublin or area? I would also like to thank snearkbrooklyn and irishmedals for all their help. I'm an average Canadian guy who has taken up a hobby not for the money but for the interest it brings. I'd love to hear from fellow club members.
