Got this book as well - put together by GP Dyer. Interesting info throughout. Bit of a waste putting a 1904 sovereign at the base of the Black Rod perhaps?! ….😊



Why not, it only cost £1!

Something of a coffee book but some interesting photos included and a few facts that the novice might not know.

A steal at 50p in a second hand book shop…it retailed for £30 in 1989!




Any quantity discount?

Very nice!

I meant to post this the other day.

A chair made by Michael Marsh.  Michael was a reasonably well known Cambridge cabinet maker as well as author / numismatist / and dealer.  

It’s eBay so caveat emptor but it may well be made by his hand.

Benedetto put his secret mark on his work he use to put  the lambda sign hidden within his work because as a student his own work was been passed off by his own tutor as it was of higher quality than his master Stefano Tofanelli.   (I have looked and never been able to find it yet on a coin)  

The reality interesting thing I've dug up on of Stefano Tofanelli  is one of his etchings look familiar anyone? It was common for the artist to "work in the style of" pervious artists/engravers, looks like Benedetto got his own back on Stefano for passing off his work in his younger days.
