    Just starting to pick up nice examples of each type. This is my latest that just dropped through the door this morning.

    My latest a 1926 penny. Some weakness of the strike normal to the type on the King's ear and Britannia's breast and helmet also light ghosting on the reverse.. Overall a pretty nice example of this not so common coin.

    Sellers commission is usually based on the volume, or value of the coins being sold. I approached Heritage and London both with the same coins (about 50k), and Heritage charged 5%, while London wanted 10%. I went with Heritage.

    Thought I'd share this as it's not a bad one mostly, but has the interesting die clash -- (and if you think it's something else that caused this let me know so I can update my notes!! 😆)

    No it's not just you. I wasn't even aware of the term until somebody at work was reading from a menu of some description, and said "your latte will be served by a barista (except she pronounced it as "barrister") leading me to wonder what the hell a barrister was doing serving coffee. I think next time I visit Starbucks, I'll just snap my fingers and shout "waiter", when I want service. Barista just sounds pretentious.
