1910 CELTIC FOOTBALL CLUB MEDAL DISCUSSED ON TV ANTIQUE SHOW

A British "Antiques Roadshow"-style program discussed a 1910 football championship medal. It's always interesting to see how numismatic items are viewed by others. The article includes a video of the show, although you need to fast-forward halfway through to get to the part dealing with the medal. -Editor

Celtic Football club medal It's not every day you find out you're in possession of a valuable antique, but that's what Sam Taylor from Saltcoats was told, after Anita Manning took a look at a photograph of a very rare football medal of his.

The Celtic presentation medal in the picture was awarded to James Young in 1910, to commemorate Celtic winning the League Championship six years in a row, and is a real collector's item, giving it a high value.

"Football memorabilia is greatly sought after, particularly the rarer pieces," Anita explained. "In auction I would put a conservative estimate, now it's conservative, at between 1000 and 2000. In auction this would be fiercely sought after, so I could see it doing even higher. This is a rare and wonderful item."
