Stop Thief

Posted on Wed, 9 May 2012 by Phil Mussell - General News, Coin News

The Quay Antiques Centre in Topsham, Exeter, was broken into on May 1. The audacious thieves braved the alarms in a swift operation which targeted the only three stands featuring gold. Unfortunately in addition to two jewellery dealers, local coin dealer Glenn Ogden was one whose stock was taken, including a number of sovereigns and half sovereigns. In addition to some sovereigns dated 2012, recognisable is a fairly worn William & Mary guinea ex-mount. If you are offered any gold or other coins in suspicious circumstances please contact Glenn on 01626 859350 or 07971 709427.
