Lot MB103221 20th century Scottish Banknotes by Trevor Jones 1998 2nd edition, paperback, volume III, 148 pages, Clydesdale Bank etc. with some notes by Andrew Macmillan

Our auction MB103 on 17 May here online was the library of the great late Scottish collector, Andrew Macmillan.

Prices realised for download here. About 90% have sold but the unsolds are available (if blank space in prices realised column) on a first come first served basis.

We don’t normally sell books but before the pandemic we’d promised to collect and sell this library as we’d sold his token collection many years ago. There are over 200 books relating to tokens, paper money and financial documents, Scottish, British, American and Canadian mainly. There are also numerous photocopies of books which Andrew annotated rather than annotating the book. As you might expect there’s every reference work you could hope to have on communion church tokens, either in the original or the photocopy. Text version of MB103 auction here

We’re not just about auctions. When you look in the BUY section here you will find all sorts of numismatic items at fixed prices to buy now. Browse or search by category or key words. And of course we’re always looking to buy or to receive future consignments. We’ll put up more pieces to buy now online gradually so bookmark the site please.
