Superb news regarding the Griqua & Strachan & Co debate

I see that someone (wink-wink) has responded to the Griqua debate on another coin forum regarding Ann Stewart’s research …

 

He states

 

That is the difference between my 30 years of research on the people and Stuart's very focused research on just the tokens. I have a very clear understanding of the environment at Griquatown at that time - where Stuart had no understanding of this.

He then says …

 

“The publisher of the catalogue advised me a couple of weeks ago by email that although he recognises the Griquatown tokens were a complete failure he would be speculating that a few might have circulated. I have no understanding of the outside forces that might have forced this concession by him but speculation is not fact. As a direct result of this speculation I have withdrawn my support of his coin catalogue.

 

I think most of South Africa’s numismatic fraternity broke into jubilation when hearing this news – now we all, at last, can support Morgan-the-Brave’s publications.

 

What a great day indeed for South African Numismatics …

I've noticed that the coinrsa site, although paid up until 2018, has been down for a while now. Hopefully this chapter has finally come to an end and an unbiased revamped site is in the making.

Hi Cold Sea, are you referring to www.coinsrsa.com?

Yes, it has been closed down 

No unbiased revamped site is in the making
