The links on this page are to articles and monograms I have written. The coverage is mainly on British milled coins and counterfeiting. This coverage is very patchy at the moment. More areas will be covered as my time and research permit. Book mark the site and revisit to keep up to date.

At least one of the links is to an article on an external site. Other articles may take you to photographs or information on external sites: to return to this site used the back arrow on your browser
