Neither of these will win a beauty contest, but they fill a couple of annoying holes!

1878 halfpenny:

1840 halfcrown:


Victorian 'bun' halfpennies of 1860-94 are much scarcer in any condition above Poor than catalog values would suggest - it took me ages to find this one. The early halfcrowns of 1839-50 are quite elusive too. This one has a small dent in it but I'm quite happy with it as a gap filler!

A filled hole is a happy hole!

This arrived this afternoon from Great Britain, it was my only successful bid/purchase from the recent Baldwin's Deane collection auction.

A Leeds, Richard Paley Halfpenny 1791, D&H-48

Spectacularly struck very off center, Extremely Fine with residual mint lustre. rare. This is an ex Col. FS Cokayne, he purchased it March 21, 1903 for only 6 pence!

Baldwin's acquired it in 1946 then sold it to Deane, where it stayed in his collection until now.

Been a while since I checked in. Some stunning additions indeed.
My collection has become a little unfocussed over the last couple of years, so time to clear some out and get back to my core collecting (Florins and oddities).

It was very expensive for the type but I couldn't resist since it was originally from the same proof set as the florin Ive posted previously so they will stay together for a while hopefully :)

Just showing off my matching pair of pretty silver Regency Period tokens from Hampshire, a shilling (Dalton 2) and sixpence (D7) issued in 1811 by the County "To Facilitate Trade." Neither is particularly rare by the standards collectors of this series are familiar with, but they are decidedly hard to find in this condition. Once again my camera skills (?) are unable to capture the lustre and mirror fields that make these tokens special.

Depicted on the obverse are the arms of Hampshire, comprising a Lancaster rose and the Saxon crown, which is apparently meant to remind us that Winchester in Hampshire was a medieval capital of England for some years prior to the Norman Conquest.

On the reverse appears a gaff-rigged cutter, a type of craft that would have seen widespread use for regional commerce, escort, and patrol on the English Channel and in the Solent, which is the strait that separates the Isle of Wight from the mainland. The seafaring and shipbuilding towns of Southampton and Portsmouth are two of Hampshire's largest cities, so we have to imagine that 40-to-60' cutters like these were the "workhorse" of Hampshire's economy.



I never pay too much for my tokens...but every now and then I may buy one a little too soon.
