I wonder if anyone could point me toward information on the internet or in print on Scottish agricultural medals? I have not had much luck, and no response from dealers who looked as though they might have knowledge. Even information on British agricultural medals in general would provide a starting point, any ideas welcome. Thanks for any assistance.
I checked with Chris Eimer, who provided the following lead. Can anyone else add to this? Thanks.
The only thing that I can think of at present is an auction catalogue source rather than a published reference, and for this I would suggest W.J. Elvin going to the Coin and Medal archive section of the auctioneers Dix Noonan Webb
www.dnw.co.uk and looking at Special Collections and in particular those of Norman Brodie and James Spencer.
In each instance, several auctions took place, so WJE will have to find the appropriate auction for the items in question, which means ploughing through (no pun intended) the material until the relevant section is found, but this I think currently represents the best groupings of such material and thus the best opportunity of any such information.
