Yorkshire Andy Posted 4 December , 2004 Share Posted 4 December , 2004 Hi Everyone, As the title says, can anyone recommend a good, reputable medal dealer? I'm trying to purchase a specific DSO, Pip, Squeak and Wilfred set that I know went to auction a few years ago but am currently unable to locate. I'm not sure of the year of the auction as all I have is a "part clipping" of the auction details that show the reasons the DSO was awarded and giving a guide price of £500 - £600 for the lot. Anyone got any clues as to when this sort of auction price was? I don't want to state to whom they are named at the moment other than to say he was no one famous and is a relative of my girlfriend who survived the war ( he was the one who did the surviving bit, she wasn't born then ) and who was in the London Scottish (that narrows it down a bit for you ). I want to try and return the set to her family if I can. However, I will need the services of a specialist in this field. I don't know the current value of set like this but would be willing to pay in excess of the market value to adequately compensate the current owner plus a suitable finders fee to the person who can persuade the current owner to part with the set. Which is why I need to engage the services of someone reputable to whom this sort of thing is their livelihood. I hope this approach will also prevent me from purchasing "ringers" or just getting plain ripped off. Many thanks for any assistance anyone can offer either as a post or by IM.
