Title Pair of boxing medals
Nationality British
Period c 1875
Price £100.00

Generic silver medals (the pink reflection is down to bad lighting!), copiously engraved with the details of the awards (see below). It is rare to find 19th-century boxing medals.

The left-hand star burst medal marked: 'C.G.C. Feather Weight - amateur - Championship. 1872 to 1873 won twice by Nelson Francis.' The other medal marked: 'W.L.B. Club, 1st prize Light Weights under 10 stone won by Nelson Francis.' (no date given). The light weights medal appears to have its original silk ribbon.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
