YOU ARE BIDDING ON A 9CT GOLD MEDAL (18grams- STAMPED 9CT REVERSE BY THE SA MINT). THE MEDAL IS AWARDED TO ISSAC MOLATO DIBETSO - THE MEDAL HAS IT'S ORIGINAL BOX AND IS ENGRAVED I.DIBETSO 4-6-1970. I BELIEVE THE COAT OF ARMS ON THE OBVERSE SIDE IS THAT OF A TOWN ON THE EAST RAND OF JOHANNESBURG (BOKSBURG, GERMISTON OR BENONI?) I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO ESTABLISH THE ACT OF BRAVERY THAT RESULTED IN THIS AWARD BUT IT APPEARS THAT DIBETSO WAS SOME SORT OF POLICE MAN - EITHER LOCAL OR ON ONE OF THE MINES JUDGING FROM HIS UNIFORM. ONE MUST TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THAT BLACK PEOPLE WERE HARDLY RECOGNISED IN THE APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA AT THIS TIME SO AN AWARD OF THIS NATURE MUST BE A RAREITY.
