It would appear that Wellings was bought by Franklin Mint in 1973, but I really can't find much more about them?

THE WELLINGS MINT, 70 Galaxy Boulevard, Rexdale, Ontario, Canada

Good luck.

I found WW1 memorabilia with wellings mfg. Co. On the back with a Google image search.. couldn't find much more though.

Thank you Dave. :ty: I have great areas to hunt, that is why my success is so good. :tu:

If you look at the trash pile Jamie you will see more than one sitting there. :smile:

yukonjack wrote:Great day for you Bruce. I am in such a drought for finding pre-1900 quarters for some reason...half dimes, trimes, and dimes no problem but not what you come across somewhat regularly! How many do you have now for the year? HH, YJ

Thanks Chris. If you are wondering how many pre 1900 quarters I have this year it is just those two. If you want to know how many quarters I have so far it is 9. As to the total number of silvers in my collection so far this year it is 51. 52 if you count the 1843 seated dime that got away. :smile:
