Civil War Pistol Ball & Medals of the English Civil Wars Book

Some three and a half centuries ago, Britain was convulsed by a series of civil wars. The names of its participants and major battles "Oliver Cromwell and Charles I, Cavaliers and Roundheads, Edgehill and Dunbar" are still well known today. These wars (1642-1651) saw the introduction of medals as rewards for gallantry and campaign service. This book places these medals within the historical context of the times. The wars also introduced the use of firearms en masse with a tactic called ‘Pike and Shot’ to English soil. We've placed both of these 17th Century British 'innovations' on a single deal and we are now giving you the chance to own the two, for the old fashion price of only £73.45 including UK postage & handling charge! Don't miss out on this offer, stock is limited...

George III, Cartwheel Twopence Paperweight_obv

George III, Cartwheel Twopence Paperweight

We have not had any of these huge King George III 1797 Cartwheel Twopence paperweights for years. They are huge, 12cm / 5 inches in diameter, and are struck in Proof copper. They come in a capsule and are heavy which is what you want from a paperweight. They will look great on your desk, at home or at work. When we originally had them, they sold out quickly. Our supplier told us that if he had to make them today, we would have to charge £79.50 for them! But as many of you know, Richard never lets what a supplier says stop him. He bought them all, so the supplier gave us a good deal! They make fantastic presents, especially at our original price of just £49.50! Get them while you can, once they are gone there will not be any more made, especially at our price of just £49.50 each for these Proof beauties.

Russia (USSR), 1 Rouble (Battle of Borodino), 1987 Proof

These cupronickel 1 Roubles of Russia were issued in 1987 when it was known as CCCP or USSR, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, shortly after their break up. These are much more difficult to find than most dealers realise. We know because we have sold quantities back to Russia. This 1987 1 Rouble was issued for the 175th Anniversary of the Battle of Borodino. Don't miss out, they are priced right and much more difficult to find than the catalogues indicate.
