BUTTON-JAR FIND: 1912 NEW ZEALAND FOOTBALL GOLD MEDAL

According to a report published this week, "A British collector
has paid 3624 ($NZ10,800) for a rare medal a New Zealand woman
has been keeping in her button jar.

Daniel Parker, of Gawber, in Yorkshire, bought the Barnsley
Football Club FA Cup winners' medal on the Internet from an
elderly woman who inherited it when her brother died two
decades ago."

"Mr Parker said he had used savings he had earmarked for his
new home to pay for the medal, but had since been offered up
to 10,000 ($NZ29,800) by other collectors.

"I did some research and saw that other FA Cup winners medals
from the 1940s and 1950s had sold for 5000 and 6000 so I knew
it was worth it. I also thought it was important it came back
to Barnsley."
