TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Deputy Master of the Mint
Date11 December 1908
I enclose a cheque for £3 being the amount due to the Royal Mint for making the Copley and Davy reverse dies.
With reference to Messrs Johnson Matthey and Co's account of £2. 2. 2 for 18.75 ozs of sliver, I should be much obliged in you could let me know what the separate charges would be in respect of the series of silver copies which make up this total, in order that the trusts funds concerned may be debited with the proper sums. Messrs Johnson, Matthey & Co. say they supplied the silver in quantity and not as buttons.
The medals in question are:- the Copley, Rumford, Davy, Hughes, and Darwin, all struck in silver.'
