    UK Election

    Virtually all the seats captured by the tories in Labour's North & Midlands had voted Leave in 2016. This really was the Brexit election. Apart from those captures, and Scotland, the results everywhere else were little changed from 2017. The TOTAL Tory vote in the entire UK only increased by 1%. If ever there was a clear indicator for PR that was it.

    It refers to the apostrophe (probably why it's listed as ONE ' !) and when I got them to include it around 2005 that was the only variety known. I used Gouby's 'Bronze Penny' as supporting evidence, along with references to Peck and Freeman's footnotes.

    Sorry a typo. Should be with not Wilh. 1949threepence. You are right about a London elite but as for labor winning with a different leader ? No way the people wanted the result of the 2016 referendum implemented. That's all
  7. Our constituency scraped home thanks to the (suspended) former Labour MP standing as an independent against them and also recommended people vote Conservative when canvassing. He resigned the whip over the anti-semitism question because he is Jewish and we have a large Jewish population in this area (which is why he has always enjoyed a substantial majority). Last time we had a Conservative MP was prior to 1997, when the incumbent had a majority of 11. Needless to say, he lost. But hey-ho, miraculously a job appeared in Brussels to compensate for the loss of income.

    Halfpenny ID check

    Yeah, I know but I like a challenge. Thing is, if it is F317 then it's R16. If it was a penny that rare someone would still want it even in that state.

    The London Labour elite badly miscalculated the mood of the country as it stood outside the M25. Of course, the elephant in the room is that with a more credible leader, Labour would probably have strolled it.

    I applaud your enthusiasm and diligence, but to paraphrase one or two others on here - all I'm seeing is either 'rang tang' or 'a thrower' 😋

    Nor me - even the image is a collector's piece. It'll be interesting to see what it fetches at auction.

    That era did produce cluster of die oddities: This looks like 5 minutes before the die exploded and bits went across the room.... Maybe they thought they could get another 24 hours service from it, like James Bond would have done.... Die Another Day? Anyone???.......

    UNC 1912 and 1922 penny coins

    Hi, looking for UNC AUNC 1912 and 1922 penny coins
  20. Peck, you are right about the Spink listing, it just says Die Flaw, and doesn't mention if it is a apostrophe, or Dot. I must have been looking at the Half Penny, when I mentioned that it wasn't listed. I think I am getting Dot and Apostrophe syndrome! LOL...
  21. It's not a clear cut issue I guess. Certainly the 1928-36 wreaths can't be classed as any kind of commemorative, but I did hear (where? can't remember..) that they were struck for collectors only hence the low mintages. They would not have circulated, as crowns hadn't been struck for currency for over 25 years; the worn examples are almost certainly due to excessive rubbing, or to being kept in a purse wallet or pocket. The 1927 set on the other hand was obviously struck as 'record proofs' of the new designs. Most denominations in it would go on to be currency, but not the crown. It therefore follows the same pattern as the 1937 and 1953 proof sets which both included a crown which - though also struck as non proofs - were clearly one-off commemoratives. Earlier, there were proof sets for the 1887 and 1893 redesigns but the crowns in those were also currency types. Before that there were the Gothic crowns and the William IV rare proof-only mantle crowns. The 1831 set didn't include a currency crown nor did the 1853 set. Arguably (if you accept the Young Head crown as currency) the 1839 set did. It's a can of wriggly things!

    I got the apostrophe added to Spink in the mid Noughties and it's been in ever since. In the 2018 book it's listed as "1946 ONE ' die flaw.........75 225" (£, EF BU)

    It would be very odd if CCGB included the dot but not the far more well known apostrophe. I'm 99.9% sure it refers to the known variety, even more so because the mega rare dot wouldn't (yet) have a price.

    Wow. I'd never seen even an image of one.
