Verify if 1902 Met. Police Coronation Medal properly named ?

Recommended Posts

Hello Gents,  I'm currently looking at a very nice 3 pc Metropolitan Police Coronation Group, & wish to confirm 2 things. 1st, the seller lists the 1902 example as being named with Rank & Name, which we all know is incorrect. As far as I'm aware, it should be, Rank, Name, Division ? I E-Mailed the owner to ask if this was possibly a simple oversight, & to please check the medal to confirm ? 2nd, the seller is asking around 150 GBP, & as I haven't been keeping track of the market values lately, if that's a fair price for such a Group ?  ( All Met. Police Coronation, 1887, w/ 1897 Clasp, 1902, & 1911 Coronation Medals. I am hoping the description is in error, & the 1902 is properly named,  but you never know ? I have always loved U.K. medals & awards, especially Police related, but haven't actively collected them in years. If anyone has any comments either regarding the naming, & the selling price, I would really appreciate hearing from them. THANK YOU

Hello Again Folks,  This is basically an addendum to my previous Post just above. I forgot to include the fact that the recipient had Pensioner off in early January 1911, with his final document being signed by some Superior on 03 February 1911. Please tell me how he would have qualified for the 1911 Coronation Medal, since he was no longer on duty on that date ? ANY assistance here will be very much appreciated. THANKS

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
