    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    The raised edge proof is also known as the pattern proof. I remember reading somewhere that only the incuse edge versions were considered to be legal tender.
  3. There's one like that for crows and vultures: KEEP CALM AND CARRION
  4. More likely is that it didn't meet reserve - maybe someone had expressed an interest if it didn't?

    It seems to be the "raised edge" proof which was .925. I don't know what you mean by 'pattern proof'?

    No, it's ok. He's from Leigh. Quite normal for anything down the East Lancs.
  8. I believe it is illegal for an auctioneer to negotiate a reduced buyer's commission as that creates an uneven playing field. Maybe they were prepared to discuss a reduced reserve with the vendor? Seller's commission rates are negotiable - worth bearing in mind if you are selling good items that the auctioneer would be glad to have in their catalogue.
  9. It's lot No 2082, but it's got a dash against it in the realised prices? Yes, it wasn't sold. I was listening and the auctioneer tried hard to get 80K for it but no-one would bid. He then passed it but said "see me later" so there may have been someone there wanting to negotiate on commission or something like that ?

    Gary that would be the 0.925. Lousy picture as it is slabbed as "cameo", which it appears not to be from picture.
  13. Yikes, bit of a distraction there & here's to her bottom staying UP! I think supporting the original topic that it was interesting that the 1952 penny went only for 80k. I really thought that would be a 100k coin. What say you all?

    Is this the proof which came in both 0.5 and 0.925 silver or the more common pattern proof.

    What is the best coin collecting software

    Yes Peckris, I downloaded the Multicollector however the editor is unavailable. Must admit I didn't pay much attention to the video in the hope someone on Predecimal might have had experience with it. The old adage, "read the instructions" rings true. Thanks for that I'll explore further.

    What is the best coin collecting software

    This video shows the template editor being used quite extensively: (This is for LignUp Multi Collector - was that the software you trialled?)

    Yes. You can see the 'raised edge' quite clearly on the reverse image. The legend on the obverse looks good, as do many features of the portrait, but not the hair. I think it's very much a coin that needs to be seen in hand. Currently up to £640 which seems rather tasty for a 1935 silver proof.
  20. You're quite right - this is an old topic! Memories of the 1970s are more vivid than those of last year...
