I was sorry to hear that Harry Manville has passed away. Harry and I were great corresponding friends in the 1980's and
We each collected mis-struck milled English coins. I specialized in coppers (Charles II to William IIII); he in silver pieces (Charles
II to George III). Brockages and dramatic Double Strikes were our 'thing'.
Over the years, he alerted me when an interesting copper piece showed up for sale in the UK (like my double-struck Cartwheel penny); I
wrote to him when a double-struck George III half crown appeared in San Francisco, etc.
From time to time, he mentioned other areas of interest. He collected the rare silver Gunmoney pieces, for example.
I always read his letters with great interest. Sadly, we lost touch some years ago. I will miss him.
