Gallantry medals can be split into two classes those given in recognition of continued distinguished service and those awarded for a single act of bravery. The latter tend to be of more interest and subsequently more valuable for a collector. However there are many factor to consider when valuing medals groups, particularly gallantry awards. Scarcity is often a contributing factor in price but there are exceptions. For example the Victoria Cross, probably the most famous and sought after gallantry medal, was awarded only 111 times during the Crimean War and 633 times during WW1. However, the First World War VC's are generally regarded more highly than the fewer numbered Crimeas. This is due to the opinion that the First World War VC's were awarded at much greater cost.
There are so many factors involved in valuing medal groups (for example Rank, Regiment, scarcity, whether the recipient was wounded or killed in action, condition, the addition of clasps and / or bars to name but a few!) that it is always advisable to consult a specialist dealer or expert in the field for valuations.
