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.

Many thanks, badge was awaiting my return today. Pleasure dealing with you again. I'll be back again.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
