AMAZON are advertising a 'Spider' brooch marked Best Gold at 60 yards awarded at the Leamington G.N.A Meeting of 1853 as having a possible connection with Horace Ford; the asking price is around £1400 .This particular Spider was won by Mr C Hawkins Fisher,- as noted in the 'Field Sporting Newspaper' account of the Meeting and has nothing whatever to do with Horace Ford. It has a maximum value of around £200. Caveat Emptor !
