About This Page
I plan to document the shire series from Angus including Dundee, Brechin, Forfar, Montrose, Arbroath.. My collection and collecting is to have a reference set to assist collectors in identifying the coins, errors and obtainable grades of the series. I will post my collection but invite others to post theirs with comments.

  • Angus DH-42
    Angusshire
    Dundee, Wright, J. (2)
    Farthing
    No. 10 D&H-42
    Obverse: - A horse drawing a cart laden with two bales marked T.R. and D.R. respectively. Legend: - SIC ITUR AD OPES with WRIGHT DES in the exergue.
    Reverse: - Front view of a large building with a pointed pediment, spire and vane. Legend: - ** DUNDEE FARTHING ** In the field 17 97 In the exergue, TRADES HALL.
    Edge: - Plain, struck in collar
    Die sinker: Wyon: Manufacturer, Kempson. One CWT struck.
    Common

    There is a similar token, D&H 40, dated 1796, but the reverse exergue reads in error TRADES ALL and only a few pounds were struck. There is a similar token, D&H 41, with the same error, but dated 1797. This is rare.
