    Waterloo Medal to Henry Martin


    Recommended Posts

    This may not be real or maybe it is just beat up and heavily patinated. Named to Henry martin.  12th Reg. Light Dragoons. Thought please.

    Must be the bad pics preventing opinions. This thing is almost as black as coal with patina. It was rubber cemented to a piece of plywood with 18 other medals and framed by in the 1950s-60s.

    Either nobody has an opinion or nobody wants to be the bearer of bad news.

    A medal I would not buy.  The suspension is missing.  Probably removed when it was glued to the plywood.  Here is a link to am authentic Waterloo medal c/w proper suspension.  https://www.dixonsmedals.com/product/single-medals/waterloo-medal-1815-with-original-clip-and-ring-suspension-josh-blackley-gunner-royal-horse-artillery-2/

    Thanks for the replies. I know the suspension has been replaced, probably long before it was glued to the board. It came with 18 other awards all listed as "WW1" period medals. I made a $250 offer in the last 10 hours of the auction (buy it now was $500). You really could not tell what medals were there but I figured 19 medals for $250 that there was no way I could lose. Even with the replaced suspension I think Henry Martin is worthy of remembering.
