Title Miniature New Zealand Wars campaign medal
Nationality British
Period c 1870
Sold

Throughout the first half of the 1860s, the New Zealand Wars were fought to wrest political control from the Maoris and settle the islands with British people. As Victorian miniatures go, this is one of the rarer examples. There is deep tarnish on the front of the medal, while the back is a lighter colour; perhaps it has been sitting in a case.

Bayonet arrived safe + sound this AM Sat. Special delivery excellent again. Worth the few extra bob. To be honest it was better than I dared hope. I usually avoid polished bits like the plague!! Your price was a bit fierce!! - but a great marking I lacked... Please email me anytime you have anything that might be of interest.
