Anthony C.L. Rennie’s STOLEN COIN COLLECTION (Reported June 27, 2017)

We would like to inform you that an important collection of Scottish coins from David I onwards has been stolen at a flat in Glasgow recently. It was a collection formed by a prominent collector who had just passed away. The collection spanned the whole period and included most key coins including an excellent run of Mary and James V including many gold issues. We understand that the coins have probably been taken out of the country to Europe. Should you hear of any offerings of Scottish coins from unlikely sources please advisee the Chairman of the BNTA or get in touch with the police handling the case:

The theft was reported at Partick and Kelvinside Police Station, Glasgow on Saturday 7th June to Constable Smith G2915: Incident-No.: 17/06/17 2350.
