    Edward III penny of York - cross in quatrefoil

    An interesting example! My thought is it's a continuation from the engraving of the die and not a deliberate element of the design, the portrait is definitely Edward III. I've seen similar ones before, e.g. the below.
  7. Anyone recognize this cursive script ? The price of 3 shillings appears to have been added later. Would appear to be a late 19th century or early 20th century hand. Not Cokayne or Batty.

    Stuff to Make Us Laugh

    Well I was really adventurous. I went into the back garden and picked up some rubbish that Storm Jorge had blown in several weeks ago. Thought, that's my exercise quota, and then some, for the day.
  17. In the year since this was posted I have seen no other decent 1882 Jamaica "no H" pennies. I think this one may be pretty rare.
  18. I went upstairs today, and had a look around. Good exercise, and it's nice to get out.
  19. That's understandable. I guess some people don't want to give their full name and address because of security reasons. A PO Box address should be relatively safe though.

    Who is this dealer?

    It's interesting actually, because some have their details (name and address) on their e bay page, and some don't.
  21. Thank you for that - I didn't realise it was that simple.
  22. Superb portrait of the King on horse! This portrait is particularly impressive when well struck as it shows a three dimensional effect. (And I have got to say that your photos are much better than the seller's!)
  23. His full name and address details are on his ebay page. Just click on "Business details"
  24. All, Does anybody know who the eBay dealer '1.10TH' is? Thanks
  25.

    1945 3d Discovered

    Moreoever, I wonder if we'll ever find out where the specimen sold in 1970 went. Irrespective of your opinion on coin grading services, a slab would at least make a tiny coin like this more conspicuous and easier to research for someone who might eventually inherit it.
