    Quote from Wikipedia ' Dawson left after frequently arguing with Daltrey[7] and after being briefly replaced by Gabby Connolly, Daltrey moved to lead vocals.' Of course, Wiki may be wrong.
  7. The book is "The Coins of the Isle of Man" You won't find the first edition, but the second edition was just published this April. The Author is Mike Southall. The only place you can purchase it is at the Lexicon bookshop in the Isle of Man. Their website was down when I purchased mine and it was a pain to get it, but the staff at Lexicon were very helpful. Are you in the UK or the US? If needed, I will send you an email address and phone number. Hopefully their website will be working.

    if you order it - tell them Zach sent you.  They'll get a kick out of it.

      Yes, Zach, live in the USA (almost sad to admit that these days!). Maryland to be exact. I would order for sure if not a King's ransom.





  8. Bit like me then The F164 is not actually touted as a scarce coin. But in UNC condition it's going to be far from common. You got it for a neat price. Surprised Matt didn't have one in his collection though.
  9. "Dark?" "Yes -the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window." "Well, turn on the office light then." "I can't." "No? Why not?" "Because there's a power failure." "A power... A power failure? Aha, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?" "Well, yes, I keep them in the closet." "Good. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from." "Really? Is it that bad?" "Yes, I'm afraid it is." "Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?" "Tell them you're too fucking stupid to own a computer."
  10. 1723 George II SSC Shillings Heads 1 & 2

    Thanks buddy. Yes it looks like an extra wee bit added on. Mich obliged.
  11. Unpopular Monarchs

    I'm utterly amazed we don't see defacement of George IV coins - a more loathsome monarch it would be hard to find!
  12. 1723 George II SSC Shillings Heads 1 & 2

    Looks like a misstrike or overstrike.
  13. Probably a gaming token or similar - do you have pictures?
  14. You will find it's completely a matter of chance whether you get frosting on 20th Century proofs before 1980,, with a few exceptions. I'm not sure why it's so variable though.

    Eh? The Detours were Roger and John Entwistle, and later they persuaded Pete Townshend to join as guitarist. The drummer was Doug Sandom, and there was a temporary vocalist before Roger abandoned guitar and took up vocal duties. Later they sacked Doug, recruited Moonie, changed their name to The Who and the rest is history. There's never been a Gabbie Connelly. Don't kid a Who fan!
  16. Edward penny ? identification

    I did think it was a bit crude .
  17. Edward penny ? identification

    yes , also the portrait is quite different
  18. Edward penny ? identification

    Thanks , I couldn't find a mint with the lettering thats visible .That would explain it .
  19. Edward penny ? identification

    It's doesn't seem an english emission , I'd go for a contemporary continental penny
  20. 1717 Halfpenny

    OK. Thanks for that. Yet another variety in the collection!!!
  21. Nothing exciting a 1908 F164...... i only bought it as you dont see many of them. Or maybe its just that i have a coin buying addiction
  22. 1717 Halfpenny

    Yes, thinner. Same size/weight flans as the rest but squashed out to a slightly broader diameter.
  23. Ebay's Worst Offerings

    "Very Rare 1971 1p New Penny. Two sold together" Only two??
  24. There's quite a lot of these privately struck, high quality commems around : I have 2 VIVAT REGINA crowns from 1978, another for JFK, another for early astronauts. Nice pieces but I'm not sure they're worth a great deal?
  25. 1717 Halfpenny

    Michael, Thank you for this. Does this mean that the larger diameter coins are thinner than the standard ones, due to the lack of collar, or is it that the flans were larger anyway?
