The latest token and weights auction is a little delayed due to the pandemic and lockdown restrictions.  However, we managed  before lockdown to collect the late Emyr George‚Äôs collection.  Mainly focussed on Wales and Shropshire,  we present the first part here with the non-Welsh portion and miscellaneous tokens.  Emyr was a consummate collector and had a really good eye for pieces not just for himself but for swapping with other like-minded collectors.  The Welsh and Shropshire checks, pub and mining among them, will be offered in the autumn.  We will certainly be busy over the summer!


We start with a suite of 17th century tokens, properties of several collectors, with the emphasis on Kent, Lancashire and the West Country.  This is followed by some rather good 18th century tokens and a run of 19th century silver and copper tokens.   Reserves have been set to sell!  So dig in please.  As usual we have tokens and coin weights from the various series and hope you enjoy reading the catalogue and finding things to add to your collection.
