  1. Past hour
  2. I had been keeping my eyes open at collectors fairs etc (Central Scotland) for one . See plenty of obscure proof sets , but no 2002 Jamaica yet . .
  3. Today
  4. No real update to speak of - I searched for coin shops and clubs in Jamaica and to no avail. If there are collectors down in Jamaica (Jammy) they are pretty quiet and understandably so. Not always the safest of places when money/coins/related are mentioned....No facebook groups there related to coins that I could find.

    I do hope they will carry on with the auctions!

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Very nice. The lack of contact marks makes it attractive despite a trace of wear. I have always like the proof-like quality of Victorian currency.

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    That farthing is beautiful. I bought this a few years ago. Well pleased when it turned up. There's a prooflike quality to the fields that I am unable to capture.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Somewhere between the two I guess. I can't get my head round photography, I just stick 'em on the windowsill on top of a coin box and point and press an old Fuji Finepix F500EXR. It mostly works ok. I tried one of these much-vaunted mats as a different background to the box - completely different colours as a result:

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    This one was an eBay find - not stupidly cheap, but given the grade and the type (rated VS in Peck) it was probably a lot cheaper than it should have been. It's not even about getting a bargain. It's just rare to find things in a decent grade on there. This one is an eBay win in my book anyway If I remember correctly, this was misattributed as a Richmond 1c. I also got a Peck 228 (rated ER in Peck) with Harp mintmark recently and that was also misattributed as a 1c, Peck 170-something.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Serious change of colour here! Which is which, I wonder? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1749-GEORGE-II-FARTHING/123927592569?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3D57b9f72e87394f1491590889b30afb06%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpf%26sd%3D274326733979%26itm%3D123927592569%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithBBEV1Filter&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851 Sold by Tara Potterr of Potters Antiques, Colston Street, Bristol. Uh?? Surely not... I remember a Potters Antiques in Bristol in the late 60s..

    Thank you all, I've sourced a copy now

    More Pennies

    I assumed everyone would already know that!
  16. couldn't post links so had to screenshot The Numismatic reviews are also there but couldn't see a mention
  17. Thanks. That's a route worth trying. Hope springs eternal. Edited to add: Anyone with the Numismatic Review vol.10 nos. 1-6 or Coin Galleries sale 28 (26/3/69) or 29 (25/11/69)? Thanks.
  18. Wasn't sure where to ask this question but as it is related to provenance research this is as good a place as any I suppose. It's a long shot, but does anyone currently have access to the Gale Cengage Eighteenth Century Collections Online database? And if so would you be willing to access/download a document for me? thx Paul

    Coin aquisition of the week.......

    Stacks had a foreign coin division called Coin Galleries... perhaps it was sold by them and not Stacks directly...

    Glendining auction catalogue March 12/13th 1958

    There's a copy on eBay now. Not sure if priced https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hn-Glendining-Co-Catalogue-of-Provincial-Tokens-of-18TH-Century-1958-cb308/254481367683?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225075%26meid%3D16974f583f5a4f378398a9103258d9a9%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D114287901941%26itm%3D254481367683%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2060778&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507
  22. Probably reached the 80? character limit looking at the length of it.
  23. This possibly could have been posted on the ebay thread but it made me laugh... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Great-Britain-1937-George-VI-1d-One-Penny-Coin-High-Grade-with-traces-of-lust/114287901941?hash=item1a9c16fcf5:g:RLMAAOSwmgNdzvKw I do wonder how you check for the 'traces' 😀
  24. Can't help. It's tokens, medals and plaques which are outside my interests. Try Paul Withers.
  25. I'm currently researching a token from this sale (lot 299) and was hoping someone could supply a scan of the catalouge entry and, if possible, the realised hammer price. Many thanks in advance
  26. NODDY wouldn't pay the ransom.........but clearly you really knew that Chris!
