About Me.

David C. Pratchett

I started in coins full time in 1979,

the first shop was in Villiers Street WC2 next to

the Embankment underground tube station,

I was there for nine years, which was a really good training ground,

on a Saturday there was the Market  also in Villiers street      

 which attracted dealers from all over the world and still does today.

From there the next move was to Whitcomb Street WC2.

right next to the National Gallery on Trafalgar Square

I shared the shop with Ray Holdich who is a leading medal dealer,

which we occupied for 22 years.

Those of you who know me will remember the type of coins I have,

not just mint  State MS150,  

but good collectable items.

If you have a coin list or one item that you want, please drop me a line.
