W. & T. Avery Apothecary Weight - Post 1850. The correct weight of 2 drams is ~ 3.544 grams. My scale gives me 7.77. So there's something I don't understand.

Since this is an apothecary's weight, you need to use the apothecaries' dram = 3.888 grams. Quite different from the avoirdupois dram = 1.772 grams.

And a very nice weight it is.

Thank you, erafjel and jbuck. A bit of corrosion, but a nice pickup for me to add to my other weight.

Heads up! Looks Like a 70% Discount for Conder Collectors...

...and anyone else interested in or curious about the issues, issuers, and economic idiosyncrasies of 18th-century Britain that led to the widespread use and popularity of "the token-coinage."

A fellow exonumismaniac located in the UK sent me this tip earlier this week, but since I stopped collecting that century some 20 years ago I'll be passing on this bargain.

However, in case any CCF members have been bitten by the Conder bug and want to add this to their library, it's marked down dramatically at Oxbow Books in Yorkshire. Good synopsis and review here, at The E-Sylum.

Coinage and Currency in Eighteenth-Century Britain. The Provincial Coinage by David Dykes, 2011, 383 pages, illustrated throughout with tokens, portraits, satirical cartoons, and other historical memorabilia, large format, red cloth, dust jacket.



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

1835 Commemorative medal by C.M.Mellgren, 41mm. Eric Gustaf Geijer was a Swedish historian, author and composer who became a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 1835.




I thought the engraving of the harp with David's hand in front and a rune stone behind was nicely done.

Lovely! The portrait seems to be in very high relief. I wonder where it was produced. Although she was of course Queen of England, her titles are usually shown as Queen of the United Kingdom or Queen of Great Britain & Ireland.
