2021 FMCA ONLINE AUCTION SETUP HAS BEGUN
FMCA 2021 CONVENTION INFORMATION COMING SOON
North British Ins. Co.,1809 – 1862. Tin. Very rare variant of B.785/W.53B. The most prominent difference from B785/W53A is the location of St.Andrew’s hands. On this variant his right hand holds the cross at a lower position than on the common B735. The surface has been cleaned & stabilized, and the crack between the main badge & lower panel has been repaired on the back. Most of these early tin marks did not survive being exposed to the elements for over 200 years; thus the condition is relatively good. This particular example is the one pictured in Wright's book as 53B. None are known to have ever been offered at a FMCA auction before.
