A collection of rare coins and banknotes were among the items stolen in a burglary in the middle of the night last night.
The offenders smashed a window to get into the house, in Sudbury Close, Chesterfield, between 3am and about 3.30am.
Once inside, the suspect woke the 71-year-old homeowner up and asked him for valuables.
The offender stole three maroon-coloured albums containing rare and historical coins and banknotes.
Among the collection were three shillings from Queen Victoria’s reign, three £20 notes with chief cashier signatures on them, a £50 note and a Scottish £50 note.
Have you been offered the collection for sale, or have you seen someone with similar items today?
Do you recognise the description of the offender, who was white, aged in his late 20s or early 30s, and wearing grey trousers, a grey jumper and a grey beanie hat?
Did you see someone matching that description in the early hours of this morning, or if you live in the area and have CCTV, could you have footage of him?
Witnesses or anyone who can help should call us on 101, quoting reference 19000226414.
