Police investigating the theft of a collection of rare historical Scottish coins have expanded their investigation to overseas sales outlets.
The coins were stolen from a house near Peebles

The collection, owned by the renowned numismatist Lord Stewartby, were stolen from his home in the Scottish Borders.
Lothian and Borders Police described the investigation as complex.
More than 1,000 coins were stolen from Lord and Lady Stewartby's home, in Broughton near Peebles.
