constanius Posted December 6, 2015 Report Share Posted December 6, 2015 (edited) This is from a Torex auction IN 2014, as you can see the belief is that only 3 of the medals from that expedition are still known to exist today, 2 in museums & the one in private hands they auctioned. The estimated value was given as $0 CAD, as they had no previous info to go by. Including hammer & taxes, it went for $2,950 Canadian, despite its worn condition. TOREX 2014 AUCTION TOREX 2014 AUCTION This is the enlarged image, so in pretty worn condition, as is the one in the National Maritime Museum Greenwich http://collections.rmg.co.uk/collections/objects/40188.html Now would be a most suitable time to imagine a roll of drums & trumpets sounding............. As if by magic, Number 4 appears, This is silvered brass, 31mm, you can see the brass inside the punch hole, and is almost as struck.
