    I was extremely surprised to see TPG holdered material in Davisson's most recent auction. I thought the Davisson's were very anti-TPG, so it took me aback when I first looked at their offerings. Nice token.

    One more bid Duke - I got it for my max. ;)

    I assume that the tokens in the auction were on consignment - all the new tokens were PCGS graded and as you say, Allan is not a fan of slabbing.

    Your Warwickshire DH-27a looks terrific.
    Its edge design is terrific and worth protecting in a slab.

    I bought an example of Middlesex 804c this week.
    It's raw and graded gEF in the UK, roughly AU-UNC here, I'd estimate.

    Nope, Stef, no signs of double strike on mine. I did notice that on yours in your NGC set. We have 2 of the 24, I wonder where the rest are. ;)

    Conder Token • Hampshire DH-36 • Admiral Howe/David Garrick

    Here's the first of five Conder Tokens I purchased in Baldwin's Auction No. 92 recently.

    Grade assigned by Gary Groll for the auction house is gEF, toned and very rare. Rated in Dalton & Hamer as RR.

    Edge reads: SKIDMORE HOLBORN LONDON

    [​IMG]

    Admiral of the Fleet Richard Howe, 1st Earl Howe, KG (8 March 1726 – 5 August 1799) was a British naval officer, notable in particular for his service during the American War of Independence and French Revolutionary Wars. He was the brother of William and George Howe. Howe joined the navy at the age of thirteen and served throughout the War of the Austrian Succession.

    During the Seven Years' War he gained a reputation for his role in amphibious operations against the French coast as part of Britain's policy of naval descents. He took part in the decisive British naval victory at the Battle of Quiberon Bay in 1759. He is best known for his service during the American War of Independence, when he acted as a naval commander and a peace commissioner with the American rebels, and for his command of the British fleet during the Glorious First of June in 1794.

    David Garrick (19 February 1717 – 20 January 1779) was an English actor, playwright, theatre manager and producer who influenced nearly all aspects of theatrical practice throughout the 18th century and was a pupil and friend of Dr Samuel Johnson. He appeared in a number of amateur theatricals, and with his appearance in the title role of Shakespeare's Richard III audiences and managers began to take notice.

    Impressed by his portrayals of Richard III and a number of other roles, Charles Fleetwood engaged Garrick for a season at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. He remained with the Drury Lane company for the next five years and purchased a share of the theatre with James Lacy. This purchase inaugurated 29 years of Garrick's management of the Drury Lane, during which time it rose to prominence as one of the leading theatres in Europe. At his death, three years after his retirement from Drury Lane and the stage, he was given a lavish public funeral at Westminster Abbey where he was laid in Poets' Corner.

    As an actor, Garrick promoted realistic acting that departed from the bombastic style that was entrenched when Garrick first came to prominence. His acting delighted many audiences and his direction of many of the top actors of the English stage influenced their styles as well. Furthermore, during his tenure as manager of Drury Lane, Garrick sought to reform audience behaviour. While this led to some discontent among the theatre-going public, many of his reforms eventually did take hold. In addition to audiences, Garrick sought reform in production matters, bringing an overarching consistency to productions that included set design, costumes and even special effects.

    My only pickup from Heritage's Marshall II sale. Glamorganshire 1, a bronzed NGC MS64BN (yes, it's brown, what else could it be?!)

    Do we get to know who "Marshall" was now?

    I won 2 pedestrian tokens in the Heritage Marshall II sale.

    Monmouthshire Abergavenny DH 1 - AU58. I believe that without the typical weakness on the reverse this would have graded MS as there is no wear. It is a token I have been looking for a good example of for awhile.

    The second a Suffolk Bungay DH 24b - MS63BN. Again, I have been looking for a nice uncirculated Bungay token for years. Both tokens look much better in hand, with plenty of luster.

    Beautiful token yarm! I was bidding on that one also but dropped off fairly early. Apparently I won one in the auction also, but not nearly as beautiful as yours!

    So it looks like I won the Middlesex Skidmore's Churches & Gates #583 Bis. I have only 4 sales of this token in my records - Spink T. A. Jan sale in 1983, W. J. Noble sale in 1998, the Baldwin's basement sale in September and this one.
