I got mine about a year ago for $110 & $70. But those came from Alexei so the price was low.

I saw a BM go for $113 on eBay recently. Dunno if it was real though. Eugene's got one of the two (can't remember which) for $245. So I'd expect about $200 for a good one might be close to the price.

BTW, here's mine. Mounted, and I didn't feel like popping them off for a reverse shot.

I'm so lazy.... :Cat-Scratch:

This one just arrived. Got it for 145$ on Ebay. A fair price in my opinion (uncut ring and dirty worn original ribbon). Medals with lower number will be going for more. Bought one earlier this year from a dealer for 175$ #274xxx

Well that is quite a bargain! The main question is what was this piece doing in India! :unsure:

I think you said it has something to do with metal scrap.

An outstanding deal that shows there are still some nice pieces out there for a good price even if you have to go to India to find them. I wish now that I had not sold the 10 that I had years ago,

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
