Alfred Hodgson - Outfitter & Tailor

Description

The token issues of A.G. Hodgson cannot be fully understood without realising that he and his business neighbour John Andrew [whose drapery and outfitting business was located at 11 Lonsdale Street West] made their arrangements together.

Both men ordered their tokens through a London agent named Coard, whose name appears on their tokens. It is thought that the dies were cut by Birmingham medallists Heaton and Sons (based on the design employed for Hide and De Carle, 1857-1858) and struck by W.J. Taylor in London.

Like Andrew, Hodgson issued tokens in both 1860 and 1862, struck by W.J. Taylor. Read more »
