  1. Hi everyone, I haven't posted in some time now so I hope everyone has been doing well. I have a 1925 50K that I am posting and although it is in rough condition I am wondering if it might be an impaired proof? I can't remember is proofs are plain edges or have lettered edges. This one is lettered edge. The reason I ask if it might be a proof is that the strike is pretty good compared to my other 1925 I have. But it might be me
  2. I made these token wallpapers a few month's back and thought to share.....hope you like them.

  5. The link below provides a great wealth of information on my new Conder Token pickup. It is a RARE Conder Token Wiltshire Holt 11 MS64BN Along with providing a link I show an image of the old house now demolished and gone The Holt Spa Posted on Apr 2, 2011 in Social History, The villages | The commercial success of spa resorts like Bath and Buxton and on the Continent, like the original Spa in Belgium, inspired the hopeful development of numerous small spas. Taking the waters for health and the associated social scene became all the fashion. Water that was rich in iron salts was found at Holt in 1688 and the supposed benefits of drinking it were promoted widely, with a book being published in London by Henry Eyre in 1731. The water was bottled and sold as far away as London. To accommodate the visitors to the summer season at the spa, the Great House, or Spa House, was built around 1730. It was seven bays wide and three storeys high and made of brick with ashlar dressings. By the early 19th century the spas brief career was declining and the building became a private school and later was divided up into flats. From 1868 it became a glove factory, but in the middle of the 20th century it was becoming derelict and was demolished in March 1957.
