Hello Peter, Many THANKS for your prompt & kind reply. I have a chance to pick that 4 piece group up for $200 USD, delivered. Although it's not within my current collection focus, it does appear to be quite a nice little WW1 Trio group. IIRC, Any LSGC Medals when accompanied by a Trio would sell for decent money. For some reason, they appear to have stabilized somewhat in price ? I also wasn't sure if a group to an Royal Marine Band Musician would be deemed more valuable that some others ? Well, again I THANK YOU for your kind reply, Take care,
Best, Dom Pastore Jr. / firstname.lastname@example.org
My pleasure. I'm a retired teacher who can't resist instructing people! And lots of time on my hands. Much of which I spend in the world of the Great War, researching and teaching.
I haven't actually bought many medals or groups in a good long while, so I can't comment in detail on prices, but they do tend to be cyclical and reflect the general economy as well, as nobody really 'needs' a 2,nd, 3rd or 7th trio to the Bogshire LI.
I agree that the R Marines have an edge on the RN in terms of price. Also feel that an LSGC adds value to a group, as it indicates someone who was not just a 'hostilities only' type. So, it sounds as if you got a good group for a good price! I hope all your collecting endeavours go as well.
