Hertfordshire DH 1:
reports that their upcoming 19 March auction "will include the balance of the collection of British tokens formed by the late Mrs Eileen Judson, including a good run of 17th century pieces from East Hertfordshire and Suffolk, and 18th and 19th century tokens from East Anglia generally. One item of particular importance is an example of the penny token issued by Robert Orchard of Sawbridgeworth (Hertfordshire DH 1), of which only four examples are believed known."
