Default Ripper medals on Ebay............

1887/97 Jubilee medal to PC W SAUNDERY T Division and his 1911 Coronation medal sold as separate lots sold on Ebay yesterday.

His 1887/97 medal went for 310 and interestingly his 1911 for only 45.

William SAUNDERY - warrant number 72333 joined 28.02.1887 T Division. 1887 medal to T Division. 1897 Y Division. 1902 medal to Y Division. 1911 medal ? Y Division. Retired 04.03.1912 Y Division.


T621 to H471 PC 72933 [3rd Class] William H. Saundery 31st October 1888.


310 is perhaps more than I'd have paid for the 87/97 medal, but it just goes to show that medals don't have to be named to H Division have a "Ripper" connection or command a premium. 45 for his 1911 medal was a bargain for someone!! Could kick myself for missing that one

Wouldn't 1887 & 1897 be two different Jubilee Medals, 1887 being Golden and 1897 Diamond?

I could have sworn I recently read something by Monty about medals - something about if they got the 87 medal, they only got a clasp for 97. But if they missed the 87, they got a medal for 97. I cannot remember it with crystal clarity.

Bobbies of the period would have only got one of these examples, with the 1897 bar being added to to the 1887 medal in 1897.

The easiest way of telling the two medals apart, is by viewing the reverse (note the dates).

The saddest thing of all is that they are for sale.

Which means either the family are selling them, or have sold them previously.
