Irish tokens exceed expectations at Noonans
Co DUBLIN, Dublin, M[ichael] Donoghue, copper.

LONDON.- A further part of a single owner collection of Irish Tokens achieved a hammer price of almost £20,000 atNoonans in their sale of British Tokens, Tickets and Passes on Tuesday, January 24, 2023. The collection had been amassed by the late Barry Woodside and is being dispersed by Noonans in a series of auctions.

The highest price was paid for an extremely rare Londonderry copper farthing for Broadway Bar on Duke Street which fetched £1,700 against an estimate of £150-200 and was bought by a private collector [lot 292]. Also from the Woodside Collection was a copper token from Michael Donoghue of Dublin dating from 1853-8 that fetched £1,600 to a private collector against an estimate of £300-400 [lot 265].

The sale of 635 lots was 99.8% sold. Only three examples of the free ticket for the Grandstand of the Isle of Man Race are known to be in existence so it was no surprise that the one in Noonans sale attracted a lot of interest and sold for £1,400 – almost three times its top estimate. It was bought by a private collector [lot 618].

A large collection of Yorkshire mining and colliery tokens from all over the county sold for £1.300 to a private collector against an estimate of £800-1,000 [lot 550].

A group of Bath tokens showing many of the important buildings in the city fetched £1,000. It had been estimated at £200-300 and was being sold as part of the Ivor Bridges Collection of British Tokens, which realised an overall total of £18,615 [lot 208].
