Most expensive medals sold.
It's the story behind the medals that make them so fascinating to collectors. Over the coming weeks I'm going to highlight 5 of the most expensive sold at auction.
5. Sgt Tom Palmer's Queens Gallantry Medal
Sergeant Palmer was a member of the SAS unit that stormed the Iranian Embassy in London
during the 1980 siege. He was one of three soldiers decorated for his bravery during the events of the day.
It sold at Bonhams London for £98,750.
One feels that he made the correct decision in that now his medals can now be fully appreciated by a medal collector, they are now in good hands.
