  1. Is it just me having trouble uploading pictures? When I try to click on 'click to choose files' nothing happens so the issue isn't the file size. Any thoughts?

    Adding pictures

    Thanks guys, I'll try again in the morning
  3. For some reason I can't add pictures at the moment. 🤔
  4. Another new addition, possibly an unlisted unofficial farthing but unsure on this one. If it is it must be one of the last few issued date wise. 21½mm diameter and quite thick at 2mm, appears to be cupro-nickel. The Reverse is a similar version of the the Remington typewriter token
  5. It's 24mm diameter so one of the larger ones in the series. Milled edge. It does seem unlikely that it is related to Holland & Holland on further thought as Harris Holland sounded quite controlling according to the Wikipedia article. Also an article in the 'Vintage Gun Journal' https://www.vintageguns.co.uk/magazine/a-harris-holland-restored gives a start date for the apprenticeship as 1876. It also poses the question of why Henry Holland is on the token not Holland & Holland
  6. Apologies Paulus for some reason I either didn't get a notification or I missed it, only just read your post. The only one I needed back in May was the Soho Manufactory which I bought last week from Paul Green at Holgate Numismatics (very friendly) It was in a group of 6 he bought from Spink, I'm not sure which others he has but might be worth contacting him
  7. A new unlisted unofficial farthing variety which landed today. I believe it relates to the famous gun makers Holland & Holland but I'm yet to research properly. Thoughts and comments welcome

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    That is a real shame, there was some nice tokens there 😪
  9. The trouble for me at the moment is that with living at work I have none of my books to hand to look things up. I could very well be wrong but have no way of checking!
  10. I'm assuming the buildings on the left and right are nothing to do with the work house as the token is from the late 1790's and they're not depicted on the 1812 tokens I've seen. If they where part of the enlargement surely they would of been included on the later tokens?
  11. Latest purchase......this leaves just one in the Birmingham series to find. This piece is ex Jan collection
  12. A little light reading for the lockdown.......
  13. Both two's are blundered but I don't think it's an over punch. Looking at it closely (×40 magnification) I'm starting to think it might be an upside down 7 punch along with another to make up a 2. Possibly an altered 9 punch? I'm currently looking for the articles from TCSB to read up on
  14. It's been very quiet on the token front for me lately so decided to splash out on the following.......Ottley's Kempson restrike in copper of the 'New Jerusalem Temple' Had my eye on it for awhile and just thought what the heck, why not!
  15. That's a lovely example 👍🏻 Uncirculated?
  16. Spot on with the grades. The book was published in 2013
  17. They're a bit of both really and fall into the unofficial farthing series of tokens. There is a wide variety of different trades covered from bakers, grocers and tobacconists through to tea dealers, wine and spirits merchants and photographers
  18. A very nice example. The Sparrow balloon tokens were some of the first I collected in this series, just need the RRR piece for the set of six
  19. Suffolk D&H15....excellent condition bought simply for the design, just love the hat.
  20. That's the trouble, can't find anything on it! Will put it in the 'unusual' section of my collection
  21. Yes it could well of been, strange how there's no legends at all though. The nearest to the reverse I can find is Caverhill W7070, obviously different though It is yes, just seems odd with Victoria facing the wrong way!
