Inspired by our discussion of the Dickeson copy of the Sommers Island Shilling, Philip Mernick writes:
these are pictures of two items from my brother Harry’s collection of coin jewellery. They are made of silver but as you can see from
the bar brooch the design is taken from a book illustration of a copper coin. I have the distinct recollection that it is taken from the
Catalogue of the Pembroke Collection, 1746.
Thanks! Interesting items, especially the brooch. What a great piece for a numismatic bibliophile! -Editor
