March 21, 2021 50th Anniversary Auction--Num9smatic Gallery LTD, London

Recommended Posts

This catalog was sent to me March 9th.  I must have bid on something many years ago---don't remember.  It is a hefty volume and I'll keep it.  Since Tim Eriksen died, I no longer collect medal bars and that with the current environment it is simply no longer rewarding.  Tim was my agent for European auctions and figured out all the intricasies with the language, descriptions,bidding, shipping etc.  I thus got some fine pieces that would have never made it to the Midwest USA.

I very much enjoyed socializing with Tim throughout the years.  He often had some wonderful items for sale.  And, he attended shows right up to the end and continued doing what he enjoyed.  I miss him, as do many others.

I am a bit confused though by your mention of an auction catalogue.  Which auction in particular are you referring to?

Best regards,

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
