THE COPPER CORNER LIST #70
November 2012 -January 2013 “Something for Everyone”
18th Century “CONDER” TOKENS-------17TH Century tokens—19th Century tokens
Unofficial Farthings, Medals, medalets, unusual historical items----
By the time you receive this I will have been back from the UK for a couple of weeks. Before I left I made provision to view a small but select collection, and am happy to report I bought it. Thus I shall have a decent supply of very rare and nice items to share with you on future listings. You can look to this list for a couple of them at any rate.
The auction at DNW saw spirited bidding from many people. some of the rarities in this sale, which consisted of a nice group of English tokens, and the Wales and Scotland portion of the Griffiths sale, many pieces not seen in a good long time---went for high prices. The Renfrew 1 sold to a clapping audience at , with commissions, 6600 pounds. ($10,700). I did my best to keep up --but not with that one--- and bought some very nice tokens.
After the auction we were all standing around at the pub and discussing the sale, and the fact that the prices continue to rise. There seem a number of reasons why, the internet being a big part of it in my view. With the internet available to bidders, there are nearly never any unsold lots as there were in the past, and about the time a bidder in the room thinks they have won a lot, the internet starts back up and the piece sells for well more than it might have. During this sale, three times I was hammered down as the winner, and it was backed up when the internet started up. I did not wind up with any of those three lots. It was also noted that E-Bay, formerly known for selling the cheap pieces, has graduated a bit into the more expensive varieties as the sellers learn how to market them. Thus, there is just more competition for everything, and prices rise.
DALTON AND HAMER---I would like to know if there is anyone out there who would buy a new edition of D&H, with all errata put together in one place (through 2006, perhaps farther), if it were available in a hardbound volume for under $100. Am looking at the possibility of getting this done, but there have to be enough initial orders to make it work. Lots to look at, such as quality, before I commit to anything, and would like to have feedback from the collectors as well. Do we need it--? Thanks---Bill

Boulton Family Holdings----a NGC slab, Boulton Holdings on the holder--- Peck 1309 Copper Restrike halfpenny, Proof 64 Brown. Very nice coin, George III/Britannia, the legend reading "Britanniarum", the date 1805. No coinage was struck for England in 1805, this was strictly a pattern. I sold most of my coins in the Stack sale this last January, but they accidentally left this one out of the sale. Very rare, very nice, $1150.
Medals--- The next two offerings were sold some years ago, and were repurchased during the turn down
in the economy. They are as new-----and offered at the original cost.
Boulton Family holdings----Medal. Death of Matthew Boulton, with lettered edge, 63mm BZ, with copper shells, gilt on the interior surfaces. The gilt interior surfaces were only on medals presented to a member of the family, this one was family owned, the medal itself is as new and rare. It has been estimated that around 75 were struck for presentation, some were for the family as was this. This medal struck by Matthew Robinson Boulton in 1819, from the family, and extremely rare thus. $3500
Boulton Family holdings----Medal, Death of Matthew Boulton, with lettered edge, 63mm BZ, with copper shells---silvered on the interior surfaces.

It is in superior condition, the medal as new, and family owned. $2500.

The tube contains 13 medals with winged victory on one side, the other side with the names and dates of victories during the war with Napoleon.

Australia----Queensland Airmail Society Rocket Mail. At one point, thoughts were to possibly send mail via rockets over water. Trials were done from Fraser Island to the SS Maheno.
