Our name and logo reflect our origins in Aberdeen, United Kingdom.

Established in 2007, 'Aberdeen Medals' is a VAT registered business that offers for sale a varied selection of British and World; Orders, Decorations, Medals, and associated items of military insignia

The owner of Aberdeen Medals, Mark Sellar, has been enthusiastically collecting medals for more then 40 years. In addition to his medal interests, Mark has an abiding interest in colonial and military history, and in particular the history of the British Empire and European Colonies 'East of Suez'

As far back as 1979, Mark has trawled the countries of the Indian Subcontinent in pursuit of medals awarded to the old British Indian Army. The 1980's were a golden age for medals, during which time a veritable treasure trove of medals were sourced from often remote and exotic locations. Amongst the rarer and more important finds were: The unique, IDSM and
bar / MM group to Puran Singh, 5/14 Punjab; A GCB Collar to a Nepalese 'Hereditary' Prime Minister; More than a score of Indian Order of Merit Groups; The IDSM/MM pair to Gurbaksh Singh, 9/14 Punjab (whose medals now reside together with his 'portrait in oils' in the Imperial War Museum Collections), and the BEM awarded to Bhajbir Gurung, 2/5 R.G.R. who was the indomitable Orderly to 'Bill Slim' throughout the latter's command of the 14th Army

A good number of the more interesting items that Mark has handled over the years, have subsequently graced some of the finest private, and publicly owned British medal collections across the world, including, but not restricted to those of ; The Imperial War Museum; the Gordon Highlanders Museum, and the private collections of 'Brian Ritchie' and 'Richard Magor'

Prior to becoming a medal dealer, Mark had a long and successful career as a business professional working overseas in the international liner shipping industry. While working with a 'Fortune 500' shipping company and it's subsidiary, Mark held several senior appointments while working in various locations spread across the Far East, South East Asia and South Asia. This experience, has proven to be a great source of inspiration and guidance in how Aberdeen Medals serves its clients with propriety and professionalism

Mark is confident, that the knowledge and expertise that he has accrued over many years, will, together with his business background, combine to offer collectors and investors alike, a rare and enjoyable level of satisfaction when sourcing items from 'Aberdeen Medals'.
