    At least my Mother in Law is out of hospital having swallowed the 1927 florin I had put in the mix bowl. I had told her that the Proof was in the Pudding, but i think she misunderstood....

    Thought I'd share this token with you. Won on eBay just before Christmas. Just arrived. Very pleased with the detail on the emu. Circa 1860 I think. And quite scarce?

    I’ve been waiting 365 days to say “Happy New Year” since I had so much fun saying it last year. Happy New Year, to all of you on the forum😃 “Here’s to a bright New Year and a fond farewell to the old; here’s to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold.”

    My next door neighbours have two huge gold chairs that they sit in over the holiday period, in their hideously decorated lounge, thinking they are the King and Queen of Christmas. God knows where they keep them the rest of the year - I think the whole thing's stupid, since I feel that people who live in crass houses shouldn't stow thrones.

    Eggs Benedict is a dish best served on the hubcap from a '57 Austin Cambridge ... because there's no plates like chrome for the Hollandaise

    Judging by the spelling, you drank at least all four, and probably more. Repeat after me - Adnams Broadside, Adnams Broadside.......... Then say it again in the morning.

    Absolutely. There are some appallingly poor strikes - for example many of the WW1 George V pennies. An UNC example, can still justly be referred to as UNC, or "practically as struck". But in such cases an EF (or even GVF) coin with a good strike (ie complete breast plate and decent hair detail), is going to be far more desirable than an UNC coin with 100% lustre, but no sign of a breastplate, and a slaphead King (for want of a better expression).

    What's the most popular Christmas wine? 'But I don't like Brussels sprouts!' What's green, covered in tinsel and goes ribbet ribbet? A mistle-toad! Why did Santa's helper see the doctor? Because he had a low "elf" esteem! Who hides in the bakery at Christmas? A mince spy! When is a boat just like snow? When it’s adrift! Who delivers presents to cats? Santa Paws! Why did the turkey cross the road? Because it was the chicken’s day off! What do you get if you cross Santa with a detective? Santa Clues!

    Not the finest example going, but in hand eye appeal is very good.

    I'm not so sure. Though the First 1in the date looks to be to the tooth, other pointers look incorrect . The rim on the 169 is more raised up with the teeth usually intact even on a worn coin, also the space between the 1 and 9 is narrower, and the sea on the right hand side runs onto a tooth where as on the 168 its to the gap between the teeth. sorry.

    Been a difficult Christmas capped ( I thought ) this morning by finding out my car's turbo needs replacing. Great. Then........got news of Neil Innes dying. This has really knocked me back. I met him four times after his shows- such a lovely lovely man. My first album was History of the Bonzos ..... Anyone else feel kicked in the stomach?

    The Ruttles - a masterpiece - every song sounded like a genuine Lennon-McCartney composition. So clever...............

    They played "I'm the urban spaceman" on local radio this morning, as a tribute to Neil Innes. What a great song. Love that bit at the end - #here comes the twist, I don't exist". Pure magic.
