Curios and Keepers

This page is for items that I have acquired during my life.
Some are family items passed to me and some I have just kept because I like them.
Any value is in the eye of the beholder and value comes in many forms.
More items will be added as I get to prepare the images.

These medals and badges were my fathers who served in the Pacific during WW2. I believe this set was issued to all who returned from that theatre.

WW1 commemorative medal possibly collected by 1900's family travels. 

Series:Australian Commemorative Medals
DateEra:1915 AD

Gold weigh scales belonging to my grandfather who as an engineer was involved for a time in the gold mines of the Coromandel and also some mining in Australia.

The scales need re stringing but as you can see they still work OK.
