MORE ON NUMISMATICS AND SHERLOCK HOLMES

Paul Petch writes:

In reference to the cited monograph linking Holmes to numismatics, the curious reader will get far more information, and the complete text of the Sherlock Holmes stories, in the two-volume set "The Annotated Sherlock Holmes" by William Baring-Gould.

I consulted a copy of the Simpson text years ago at the Toronto Reference Library and discovered that Baring-Gould had included much of its contents in his annotations. Many inexpensive copies of the Baring-Gould work can be found at AbeBooks.

Further to my piece on Somogyi's 1989 Holmes medals in The E-Sylum Volume 5, Number 27, June 30, 2002, Article 8, I thought I'd share the images with you. For what it's worth, I've never seen any others, and the production quantity of the bronze version is unknown. The silver one is crudely numbered #145 of 310. The quantity of 310 supposedly consists of 300 examples in silver and 10 in gold. Whether this many were ever made is open to question, but judging from my silver piece at least 145 examples should exist. Ms. Somogyi gave me the choice of whether I wanted a hanger or not, so I chose the silver one with and the bronze without. Regrettably, I never bought the gold.
