Certainly not ten a penny, Mike, but, they do turn up and always very good subjects to research.

Hello Mike,
Well, you have the relevant part of WO100/112, so you can do your own head count, as a general rule, copies of their rank and file papers are in WO400, but, if your particular gentleman is not, don't worry, his originals should be extant at Combermere and in the event that you cannot visit yourself, they can be sent over to you, although, I would recommend a visit in person.
Regards Frank

Good luck Mike!

I've recorded 14 for sale since 2005 - 4 last year though.

I think the moral is - buy immediately.

I sold the QSA to Tpr J Kavanaugh in 2008 via City Coins, so I assume it was picked up by you
