Coin collection burglary in Gloucestershire

Please see below the details of two small coin collections stolen following a break in and burglary on Monday 9th November 2015 from a manor house in Gloucestershire.  I should be grateful if you would let me know if any of these are offered for sale through your rooms.


Please note the following reference numbers:-


            Gloucestershire Constabulary Crime Reference Number:  CR/026679/15


            Criterion Loss Adjusters Reference: 15/12489/PT/AC – attention Paul Taylor -


Please note that the small Georgian mahogany cabinet containing the Russian copper re-strikes is particularly unusual.  It seems very unlikely that any similar group of medals would be consigned for auction.
