I can find no reference anywhere to this particular box, nor its contents. Would it be safe to assume that it may have contained the same crowned heads as the filigree box? I can think of no other contemporary set of 20mm tokens.

I think it must have done. Maybe its a slightly cheaper version as the filigree version would have been more difficult to produce.

Impressive. Apart from Toulouse, all seem to be reminders of the peninsular campaign; made before Waterloo. I would say that Wellington has had a deeper influence on British history than Churchill.

It didn't sell first time round and I'm getting a twitching in my wallet. I may have to try to negotiate.
