Not in my collecting interest, but was excited to save this piece of history. Nice thing about it is that each medal is rim engraved with the recipients rank and name, and, shows his rise from paymaster to commander on each subsequent campaign medal. Will add more pics later. Hope you enjoy.2019-11-21 10.29.38.jpg

Wow!  Excellent score!  I'm sure you'll be able to flip them and obtain something substantial that IS in your collecting interest.

Looks like he received a West Indies AND a Spanish Campaign Medal.  That's quite unusual.  Possibly being a paymaster enabled him to pull that off.
