Samuel Coombes - Tailor

Description

Samuel Coombes was a tailor, born about 1837, whose main store was in Queen Street, Auckland, New Zealand. He also had a store in Albert Street, Grahamstown. According to a biographical sketch prepared by New Zealand numismatist H.A. Robinson, Coombes was...

...was the only issuer of currency tokens in New Zealand who put his portrait on his tokens. He is depicted in the style of the day, full face, with side whiskers, and like King Henry VIII, whom he resembled, he made the mistake of showing his portrait almost full on, with nose protruding, instead of in profile.
