Hello Brett,

Just to tell you the swivel has arrived and it certainly was worth waiting for. I did not realise it was in such pristine condition!

I am really pleased with it.

I will look out for other Norman/ Romanesque items on your site and hopefully the license won’t take such a long time then.

Hallo Brett,

the books arrived this morning and they are really beautiful!!! Thank you also for the commercial site concerning other archeological books. I'll surely order some more books of these but have to wait until my friend whom I ordered the second sceatta book for will return from holidays in about 3 weeks.So he can tell me what HE is interested in and we can share the postage.-One question: Tony Abramson mentions the lists of Patrick Finn. I there any chance to get these?

Best regards

Hi Brett

Just wanted to thank you for sending the ring so promptly. We received it
on Saturday and Ben absolutely love it. Please could you thank the
jeweller again from us for doing such a good job in resizing it.

Thanks for all of your help

Alison C (26/4/06)

To whom it may concern,

I would like to take this opportunity to say
thank you for your help in organising the export
licence application to The Museums, Libraries and
Archives Council in regard to the purchase I have
recently made from your establishment. Suffice to
say it is refreshing to come across a business
that has an actual business ethic - all the more
comforting when you are interacting with that
business from the other side of the world using
nothing more than a glorified flashing box.

received the Lindner box today, thankyou for the quick service.

I am not a coin collector (found you through Google) but my husband had a few odd coins and I said 'lets display them or get rid of them', which is why I ended up buying a display case for his birthday!

We will see how he likes the tray, but if he wants to collect/display more then I would certainly use your site again for the quick service,

I received my order last week, thanx for prompt and professional service you guys are on my all time list of "cool" companies, I will recommend you bussiness to all of my "collector" freinds,I recently did family history research and found out I had numerous ancient family lines going back to East Anglia and beyond, so this stuff is about my history.When Iwas growing up I used to see artifacts like I bought in books and Meseums , it was like a dream come true to be able to actually possess such items. I have one question I hope you can answerabout the historyof these items(PROVENANCE) Irealize that probably more detailedinfo would have made these items more expensive than I paid for them if you could Provide anything approximations educated guessess about the time , place and or circumstances about the origin of these artifacts it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Brett,

I'm just writing to let you know that the flint scraper and knife have arrived today and I'm very happy with them. The flint blade is particularly fine.

Thanks for your help.

Just to let you know I received the Henry VI penny today and all is well.
I have to say I never saw so much paper included with one coin in 25 years of collecting !

Every other coin I've bought ( there were a lot) came with a one, maybe two page receipt and that's it.

This is the first time I experienced the export papers and I probably bought 150 or 200 coins from UK dealers. Is this new ?

Anyway, I like your website and will continue to look it over.

Thanks. John Schermeister (USA)


Dear Sir,

Coin arrived quickly and safely on Saturday morning, thank you...another great coin.

Hi Brett,

Just wanted to let you know the flint scraper has arrived and I'm very pleased with it.

Thanks for all your help.


Sally [Australia]


I am an avid collector of English short-cross pennies and I depend on 2 sources for my coins. First fine dealers like Brett. I couldn't have a finer mate as a collector...And second detectorists like yourself that are able to bring new material to the collectors like myself.... I understand that in some cases you probabily do not realize the excitement a few coins can give to an old collector like myself....

Best regards & again congratulations.....

Thank you so much on how you have handled this situation. Tell your BOSS (or maybe you are the boss!!) that you should get a PAY RISE and a few beers thrown in, for your excellent customer service. I really appreciate how you have handled it.

Just a short email to let you know my coin arrived quickly, securely and safely today (Wednesday). Thank you for such a professional service, which couldn't be better. I look daily at your web-site and will no-doubt be in touch again for further coins to add to my collection.

I've visited your site, great site may I add. I've seen some things I would like to buy and I would like to pay by......

Thank you,

29th February 2004

As promised, I am writing to let you know that the coin purchased from your company is officially suspended from my chain. The jeweler did an excellent job of the bezel. If you have never investigated custom bezels, I beseech you to look up samples from the Atocha shipwreck. They are not at all artistic, or feminine.

Although I could never master the fine art of operating a standard camera, I felt that a digital camera was the solution for me. I should re-enroll in University just to learn how to take a decent photograph. Should I choose to undertake this endeavor, you will be the proud recipient of a pictorial document of the end result.

As for her take on Las Vegas..........and I quote "This is Satan's work, and it is appalling in our eyes".

Just thought you'd want to know.

Thank you for everything, as always,

Lynnette in Las Vegas

I got the coin and it was even better than I had hoped. It is just perfect for its intended purpose....

Thanks for your advice. I know you must be busy. It's nice to learn more about English Hammered coins.
