Congratulations; not many of these available, compared to Waterloo Medals.
"British Battles & Medals" lists 7 officers and 44 sailors for your ship, and a total of
1611 medals issued with the Trafalgar clasp.

Sadly it along with a lot of other high end Victorian medals came from a deceased estate.

The sale will be online tonight with luck.

Cheers, Ade.

More evidence British medals are the best. The detail on the crown is amazing.
