Howard Stores
« on: January 13, 2013, 04:55:56 PM »
Any idea who Howard was and where his store was situated?

I'm presuming UK, but could conceivably be Australia, New Zealand, Ireland or South Africa.

Cu-Ni, 29.0 mm, 6.67 g

These were from a grocery chain in the North of England, I think based in North Shields.

Tack så mycket!

Excellent -- always nice to attribute these to a geographical location.

A little more information, forget the groceries;
Howard Stores were a firm of general drapers who specialised in school outfitting and had premises in Newcastle, Gateshead, North Shields and Blyth.

I have a penny token with counter-mark of a four leaf clover.

Here is an image of the 1d token with a counter-mark in the shape of four leaf clover, followed by another image of a similar token that has a hole punched apparently removing said counter-mark.
Both AE, 31.3mm., same both sides; but different dies, note 'D' underlined, [8.5g] the second dot under 'D' [9.0g] ...thicker!

Howard Stores commenced trading in North Shields and by the 1930s had 14 branches in Tyneside.

Logically, there ought to be a 3d and a 6d. Good luck finding them.
