Thames (NZ): Samuel Coombes Memorabilia
An interesting item online today, a coin produced by Samuel COOMBES, shopkeeper of Grahamstown.
Many businesses in Shortland and Grahamstown produced similar coinage in the early years of the goldfield.
In August 1874 Samuel COOMBES sold his clothing business, Albert street Grahamstown to T BRIDGER.
