|Alan V. Weinberg comments: I bought this medal in an antique shop in Chester England in the 1990's. It had just come in with a long, heavy gold necklace with approx 15 gold nuggets suspended with gold labels on each nugget identifying the South Africa mine origin of each nugget. Price for the necklace $3,000 US. I wanted this miner pictorial silver medal only. The shop promptly sold the necklace and contacted me that the buyer didn't want the medal and I bought it. Nuts! I should have bought the necklace- it was a beauty - but it wasn't American so I turned it down which I regret to this day.
