    Nice! Bring ‘em on, Paulus!

    You still focused on tokens? Noticed the C1 HCs could potentially be taking over? Great to be fluid…builds knowledge :)

    Hey Stu!

    3 focus areas still for me:

    • Milled silver types, preferably early milled
    • Charles I halfcrowns, different Spink numbers
    • 18th C Conder tokens

    BTW, your camera gave up the ghost in the end after many many pics, bought another of the same second hand

    Latest addition to my Kempson Bath series, extremely pleased with this one, Somerset D&H70. These are the sellers pics



    Very nice Will. I'm also collecting Kempson's Coventry buildings (along with Bath and Birmingham), I don't have an example of that one yet.

    Here's my little collection of Coventry buildings so far

    The legend "CHRISTO AVSPICE REGNO" on Charles I coins was blatant propaganda. Unfortunately for Charles, it didn't stop people from overthrowing him.

    The numismatic legacy of his reign is simply unmatched by any other monarch.

    I always smile at the declaration on some of the civil war coins, like my Briot style horseman Oxford halfcrown.

    The reverse shows a shortened version of the “Declaration” which Charles made in Wellington in September 1642, in which he promised to uphold the Protestant Religion, the Laws of England, and the Liberty of Parliament, shown in two lines across the centre of the coin.
    Being an abbreviation for:-
    Which translates as:-
    The religion of the Protestants, the laws of England and the liberty of Parliament
