            Absolutely agree.
            Speaks volumes for this dealer’s integrity, or lack thereof

              The buyer should have been told that.

                I was intending to buy it until I saw the Spink auction.
                I told the dealer but he did chose not to reveal this in his description.

                  I agree disclose repairs,
                  In this case I think a good job was made of it !

                    Ok, colour me silly, but if this medal was issued [to the relatives?] of an Isandlwana KIA, how and under what circumstances would it have gotten broken so as to require repairs? Was somebody else wearing it?

                      Probably ended up at a jumble sale and some biker bought it and made a nice necklace out of it. Rob

                        This one was probably made into a pendant but who knows as there is no stated provenance.

                        If was common practice in 19th century Great Britain for next-of-kin (mother, wife, son, daughter) to wear the medal(s) of the fallen.

                        For example, it's not at all unusual to see KIA Crimea medals with Bailey brooches.

                        Medal(s) were to be worn on the opposite side.

                        The practice is still common in the UK on Remembrance Day, but no longer legal in Canada.

                        Here is a good example...

                          As Roy A stated. Not uncommon. Same thing was also done back then with old coins being turned into various types of women's jewelry such as broaches et al.
