A warm welcome to this website, on which you will find a variety of coins, medals and related items, in which I have been dealing for more than fifty years. Modern technology has replaced the quarterly printed catalogues issued in the early years, in the 1970s, while prices have sikialrly changed. The one constant has been an attempt to maintain the quality of items offered for sale, which continue to be selected for their visual appeal. Anything purchased can be returned within ten days of receipt, if not entirely to satisfaction.

Postage, packing and insurance are charged at a combined cost of £4 for inland, £8 for Europe and £12 for overseas sendings; the cost will be scaled back proportionately for orders of multiple items.

There are no additional charges, such as the 'Buyer's Premium'. which auction houses introduced in the mid-1970, an increasingly onerous levy for the buyer, which today typically adds 30% to the overall price, with postage usually adding  further £15 or more to the costs.

Items on the website are offered subject to availability and while prices are occasionally revised upwards, the listed price will be honoured at the time that an order is placed.

My work on Mehmet the Conqueror: A Portrait of Youth and Ambition has recently been published by Spink and is available here, under the book section, or elsewhere, on-line or at various bookshops. 

On a more private note, my wife Missi and I have been collecting medals featuring cats or those otherwise related to the feline species, in their domestic context, over many years. As such, we would be interested in hearing of any such items that may be available for purchase. The collection constitues one element of this website, illustrating the various contexts in which cats appear in a medallic or related form. 

Any questions - do email or call.

Enjoy browsing and happy collecting!
