New book "The Decimal Penny"

Recommended Posts

Michael Gouby put me in touch with a chap called Frank Hulett who's just had published a new A5-sized booklet devoted to the decimal penny 1971-2020. It's an excellent piece of work with superb illustrations and descriptions of the different varieties that he's come across. He's also discovered that the Brilliant Uncirculated specimens issued by the Royal Mint sometimes have characteristics different from the specimens issued for circulation.

Frank is happy to supply interested collectors with a copy of his splendid book for the cost of postage.

His email address (which he's happy for me to quote) is:

frankhulett@hotmail.com

I recommend it for collectors of decimal coins.

Thanks for the 'heads up'. I emailed Frank yesterday and there's one in the post.

Ditto

Looking forward to seeing if Franks found any more varieties, that bhx7 and myself haven't already identified.

My copy arrived yesterday and its a jolly nice booklet Frank.

All the detail, concise and with coloured pictures. Only missing the portcullis rivet position varieties.

Just as a matter of interest, do you know whether Frank Hulett is any relation to the late Dr John Hulett, whose very extensive collection has been spread over several DNW auctions? I only ask because Hulett is not an especially common surname, and there is an obvious coins link.

Ask him. John was an only child and never married, so it would have to be a couple generations back.

Did you mean "a couple, generations back" or "a couple OF generations back".

Both will do. I don't know the answer, so 'a couple, generations back' will presumably apply at some point even if they were cold blooded and had feathers. A couple of generations back is less certain, but possible.

I just received my copy of John's book, here in the USA. I am very pleased with the book, it is very professionally assembled with excellent color photo's.

Great job John, thank you very much for including me in you initial release.

 

All the Best, Bob Crawford.
