thanks for all your replies and advice- very much appreciated and absolutely makes sense- pics are king, got it.
I now have a dropbox with over catalogue of over 100 pics that the executor took for me- The coins are currently in Florida.. I think I'm going to have to make a trip over to collect them but told they are heavy!!
My head was slightly spinning after 10 minutes of research- I was pleased to see a few UK coins in there.
Any advice on who's door I should be knocking on, that would be so great.
Ive tried to upload some pictures but clearly not capable.
