His interest in coins began when he started using a metal detector around his local area in Richmond. He found some old coins and metal objects which he managed to sell, so now David is on way to becoming a dealer too.
David will be taking part in the second Be a Young Dealer for a Day initiative that runs at the weekly Saturday morning market during July and August.
Organiser Bridget Pettecrew took over running the market from her father Rodney Bolwell who started the market, beside Embankment underground station, in the 1970s. “This is our second ‘young dealer’ project aimed at encouraging young collectors of coins, stamps and other collectables to experience first hand what it’s like to take part in an established market.
“A bargain table rental will cost just £5 for the day during July and August and young collectors can spend time with old-timers who have been dealing here for many years.”
The initiative is aimed at people up to the age of 18, and those under 16 will need to be accompanied to the market by an adult.
