Davissons E-Auction 41 Featuring Scottish Coinage Closing Tomorrow
Davissons E-Auction 41 closes tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept.29, so act now to participate and build your collection in areas such as: Scottish coinage, British Tokens, Greek and Roman issues and more. You can bid through the Davissons website at www.davcoin.com or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The segment of Davissons E-Auction 41 that we’ll focus on here is a wide scholarly collection of Scottish coinage. In his introduction to this portion of the auction Allan Davisson, wrote that the British “are the only peoples that have an almost continuous coinage extending well over two millennia.” It’s a simple thing to say, but a mind-blowing thought to consider.
British coinage, tokens and medals being Davissons specialty, I always pay close attention to his comments. Considering the collection of Scottish coins in this sale, Davisson went on to say that, “The Scots were a bit late on the British scene. Their coinage did not get started until the 12th century, but their tumultuous history and their sense of independence marked their coinage.”
