Welcome to my new website
Welcome to List 33, predominately featuring the late Eric Evans collection of the provincial coinage of Charles I. I knew Eric for many decades and we did a lot of very satisfactory business together, his company being Noth Wales Coins. Our relationship was always harmonious and we always had plenty of time to chat over the phone, usually about anything other than coins! His passion was collecting in particular the provincial coinage of Charles I, and he used to say that when he completed cataloguing , he would let me sell it for him. Sadly he passed away in January this year having never managed to finish listing it, however I have now catalogued it to the best of my ability, and I hope that I have done it justice, and that Eric would have been pleased.
I decided this time to produce a printed catalogue in part because this collection deserves a stand alone catalogue and because so many of my clients prefer it, so I do hope there are items of interest. List 33 also incudes other items being sold on commission and a very high quality collection of floris from 1849 to 1967, along with lastly a good group of Maundy coins.
The new web site has been popular and I hope you continue to find it user friendly, if you have any operating problems please do not hesitate to call us on 01306 884880 or 07798 611006.
We attended the York and Harrogate shows earlier this year, and it was good to meet with clients old and new. Both shows were successful and well attended and enjoyable. We will be present at Coinex later this year, and apologise for our lack of attendance at any of the other London show this year. This is due in part to moving offices, which I did single handed and it took three months and a lot of culling, especially the library, which it left us with a lot of catching up to do!
I have a reasonable number of 2019 Coin and Market Values, at nearly 50% off at £4 including postage.
We constantly require fresh stock, so if you would like to sell your collection or select items on a commission basis, we would be delighted to accommodate you. Depending upon condition and desirability, we will likewise take coins in part exchange. I would remind you that it is important to have your collection adequately insured. We are more than happy to provide you with a free valuation less our expenses. Lastly please feel free at anytime to call, I am always happy to give advice and I do attend most auctions and can act on your behalf, my terms are very favourable.
You can order by post, e-mail or by phoning, the latter being preferable, please expect up to 7 working days to receive your order, as the coins have to be retrieved from the safe deposit boxes. Phones 01306 884880 or 07798 611006. We charge £10 for UK Special Delivery and £20 for overseas.
