British Medals & Militaria highlights this month include three diverse- and collectible pieces; an outstanding Waterloo Master Of The Mint medal. Secondly, a 1796 universal gorget, as worn at Waterloo. Lastly, a hard to find example of the Lemania ‘Dirty Dozen’ wristwatch.

 

 

 


The first highlight for November is an outstanding Waterloo Master Of The Mint medal, given by The Mint to the United Services Institute in 1816. Just thirty Waterloo Medals were given by The Master Of the Mint to institutions such as the United Services Institute, and the British Museum. Others were given to heads of government, such as the then Prime Minister, and the Chancellor. This example comes from the James Barry Gregson collection.

 

 

 


Our second highlight also relates to the Napoleonic period. A stunning 1796 pattern universal gorget. This is the so-called Waterloo Gorget, as it epitomises the British officer at waterloo. This example has fine engraved features, and retains much of the mercuric gilt finish. A beautiful centre piece to any Napoleonic collection.

 


 

 

Lastly, we offer an excellent example of one of the classic British military ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches. This WWW ‘Dirty Dozen’ watch, manufactured by the Swiss firm of Lemania, one of the hardest of the ‘Dirty Dozen’ to find.
