Sad loss

Posted on Wed, 24 April 2013 by Carol - General News, Medal News

It is with great sadness that we report the death of one of the UK’s most popular medal dealers, Fred Walland. Fred was a well known face at many leading fairs and in particular the Britannia Medal Fair which he originally founded with Malcolm and Jeannie Gordon. A pioneer of the hobby of medal collecting, Fred’s regular lists became a familiar part of the collecting scene. We understand Fred was 74 and had been battling cancer. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his loved ones.
