    I regard this 1849 penny acquisition as the pièce de résistance of my pre 1860 Victoria copper collection. Even though it's meant shelling out a lot of money, it was worth it to get something as nice as this. Unfortunately I'm still having issues shrinking the pics, so obverse and reverse will have to go on separate pages as the lowest I can get each down to, is 287kb, and the max is 500.

    This one just added to my Sixpence collection with nice toning. An upgrade to my previous example I listed recently.

    Among the many vices of George IV was being excessively overweight. One of his nicknames was the "Prince of Whales".

    Oh- there was going to be lots of pennies- great pennies, none made in China CHINAH, I'm very knowledgeable about pennies, I'm a great collector, all pennies, but I looked at the Auction list and there are strangely hardly any... I DEMAND A RECOUNT!

    From the Daily Mail this week: I saw on display in a Pet Shop an animal described as an "Amsterdam cat" so I went in and asked "how Dutch is that moggy in the window ?"

    I still firmly believe in "Buy the book before the coin" but tonight half my reference library fell on my head. My wife says I've only got my shelf to blame.

    yes you are right I did put george IV and it was a mix up - his father was a totally sound guy apart from the odd bout of mental illness , we have much to thank him for even the RHS

    I think you're confusing him with George IV who was utterly detested and reviled, and had been bailed out by George III several times.

    and the reverse. Unfortunately the obverse is a slightly weak strike.

    That's because slabbing has effectively commoditised the product, just like things have a recommended retail price in the shops

    Ok, not an O over sideways O, nor a G over sideways G, but I have just listed on eBay an 1874H farthing with C over C as per wybrit's post above, if anyone's interested, with this link... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/284069502338 I have another one myself, so this one listed is a duplicate, but I don't know how many more have been noted? Not as spectacular as the sideways double entries, but it's there if anyone wants it as a variety!

    I always leave the top of a piece of sea bass in a restaurant - I don't believe the old fairy stories, so I don't like crumpled fish skin....

    Anyway, I really should have posted this one before, but I got it in May before the thread was started. It's an 1841 colon after reg in NEF/EF, which I picked up from e bay for a very reasonable price. Apologies can't get both sides on the one post as compression not working on my tablet for whatever reason.

    Honestly Sword, I should have been on commission mate! 🤣 But they are seriously useful little coin mats! I've got a nice 1856 Nova Scotia one penny token sitting on it right now! All the best, Weaver (wayne)
