Andrew Litherland established "ARL Collectables" in 2007 to act as an independent dealer and consultant. He saw this as a natural progression in his numismatic career having spent over 30 years as a dealer and auctioneer in coins, medals and collectables.
During this time he successfully ran the Medal Department at Spink and was Head of Coins and Medals at Glendining's the numismatic division of Phillips Auctioneers.
Whilst at Glendining's Andrew was responsible for holding many "Scripophily" sales which included a good selection of British and World Bonds and Share Certificates.
Setting up a "Collectors" Department for Bloomsbury Book Auctions in 2004 extended Andrew's knowledge in handling books, manuscripts, documents and general "paper ephemera".
Andrew has also edited the 6th edition of British Battles and Medals - the medal collectors "bible" and helped compile The Standard Catalogue of Catalogue of Orders, Decorations & Medals with Valuations in 1990.
Andrew can regularly be seen at coin, medal and ephemera fairs throughout the UK and to find out more click on Upcoming Events.
