Yup. Left ticket (which looks grey to me and written in fountain pen) looks like Comber's writing to me too.

Thanks for that :)

Interesting…why would he write two for the same coin?

Is the other (neater hand) ticket not John Jerrams? Or am I confused?

No these are the tickets that belonged to an earlier sale, before J.J. purchased it to sell, I got confused with me pictures 😬

The neater hand is agreed to be Comber (there’s a couple of other Comber tickets posted in recent days for comparison), so it’s now the left I’m curious about? Sorry for the confusion.

Bill Pugsley?

yes, that's the man. We exchanged emails for a while and I thought the book was imminent but I've heard nothing for over a year.

He often used to post on various facebook coin groups, but I haven't seen him for a very long time. Well over a year.

So this (larger one) is Chris Comer, Stu?

Have you the coin with those tickets, not a common 6d that?

No, I just save any images of coin tickets I think might be useful later and this was one I spotted.
The other ticket is a Baldwins one in Michael Sharp's hand. Hopefully both are still with the coin.

I'm completely green when it comes to old tickets, so any help appreciated. I've just bought a W&M 1693 Irish halfpenny and it has come with an old circular ticket, plus a paper holder. As far as I can judge the writing on these is from two different people, and I wondered if anybody can identify either or both of them. Any ideas? There was no clue from the vendors.

I don’t know the answer to this, but do you think there’s a link?
One of the below tickets references Ffolks tables of English coinage, which I’ve been advised was an antiquated source by the mid 1800s? It’s been proposed that we should be looking in the 1750-1830 window for a collection with these hand-made tickets?

Jon Mann collection ticket (as opposed to dealer)

Here's another mystery ticket well, four actually. It's the larger ones that are most of interest to me. The numbers at the bottom state the sizes of medals using the Mionnet scale. A now obscure system first publicised in 1804 and apparently out of use by the 1920s. Which hopefully dates the tickets themselves to early 20th century.

The smaller tickets are more recent, but I'm thinking 1950s 60s perhaps? The writing looks familiar, but I've just not managed to pin it down.

Two pairs of tickets, describing different medals, but from the same sale and collection.

Comments welcome!
