Granby Medals valuation

#1
Does anyone know the going rate for the set of 3? A firm that advertises on this site gave a valuation of 200-250 quid for the set, is this a fair price or are they taking the piss? I don't want to go into the ethics of a bloke selling his medals as the reason seems kosher to me.

The set is
Gulf Medal and bar (unmounted)
Saudi medal and cert
Kuwaiti medal and cert

The way I would check is to scrutinise ebay and the other auction sites.

Have you thought of seeing if a similar set is on EBay? Bit of a naff suggestion but you'd be surprised what is on there!

Value depends on a number of factors. Generally speaking Granby Medals to RAC and Infantry units have a higher market value than those to Corps, similarly, those named to Officers have a higher market value than those to ORs. Medals year book for 2005 gives the following values

With Jan/Feb clasp
RAC/Infantry/RN and RAF £250-£350
Corps and RA ££200-£250
Civilians ££200-£250

Saudi Medal for the Livbertaion of Kuwait £20

Kuwaiti Liberation Medal (4th grade) £10-£15

Hope that helps

The Int Corp forum was running a thread a few days back. Telic 2 medal on ebay for £200 and a REME set of 7 went for £1860. OC14 seems to have a good grasp of it. Nice to see as a crab mine is worth more than a gunners thanks for that OC.

Put it this way, if they are willing to pay £200 - £250 then they are looking to sell at a higher price and 100% markup by dealers is not unheard off!

Medals sell better with provonance, so include a photocopy of your discharge papers as well and try e-Bay at a starting price of £300 and see what happens. Bearing in mind that you have the sellers premium to pay on completion.
