Biography alert! I’ve put together a short note on the life and work of Major Perkins, a Dudley numismatist, which as ever is available via the ‘Research’ section in the header and this link. Perkins is one of the more enigmatic individuals to feature in the history of numismatics in Worcestershire, although his contributions on the seventeenth century tokens of Dudley were a welcome addition at the turn of the twentieth century. Anyway, do give it a read.
