William Webster Coin Dealer Token

Long before Coincraft had a shop on Great Russell Street, there were other coin dealers located there. This is a brass advertising token struck by William Webster, dealer in Ancient and Modern Coins, Medals & Antiquities at 7 Great Russell Street (although his address was actually no.17). As it states on these tokens, Webster was the successor to William Till who is recorded as a ‘curiosity’ dealer at 17 Great Russell Street in 1832. Till died in 1834 so William Webster, who was Till’s Nephew, ran the business from then on until his death in 1885 and these tokens were struck in the period from 1851-1885. These are very scarce tokens in wonderful condition but we only have a few available to lucky collectors. The last time we offered even one example for sale was 10 years ago at £75.
