    I have to own up to buying the F112 at LCA a few days ago. The new bathroom has been put on ice and the atmosphere at home is a touch frosty. Your sympathy would be appreciated.

    Another gap filled in my Edward VII Sixpence date run. Only need to find a 1902 proof to complete this series.

    Quite pleased with this 1860 Farthing - Dies 1 and A I believe, so F496 - which came to me amongst a group of coppers at the market yesterday. A great upgrade for me.

    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!! 😆)

    But just very occasionally a fully struck up 1915, with good hair detail, that isn't a recessed ear, will show up:-

    Meant to post this a few days ago. It's my F160 now freed from its MS64 slab, photographed and suitably cropped. It's much the scarcer of the two 1905 types and I've been trying to get a decent one for some time.

    As I've said before on here I don't often buy coins these days but will, once in a blue moon, spend an idle hour or so grubbing about on Ebay. It would seem there are still occasional bargains to be had as I've just bought this. BIN £1.50, and with free postage.

    Not much happening on here lately 🙂 Another recent upgrade that probably most people dont want or look for although i think they are scarce due to only being another dot / flaw and looking at a lot of 1922 pennies to try and find them. The only one i have seen that sold at auction was in the Workman sale. 1922 DOT and again like the 1909 DOT in the updated Freeman.

    The Freeman 8 mule I won at the LCA arrived today. Very pleased. OK, nowhere near the best available, but problem free and another really rare coin that doesn't come up for sale very often.

    Been sorting through some of my old photos from the Falklands and scanning some of them in. I rather liked this one - an old wreck hull being used partially as a storage warehouse by the locals:

    OK, it's not that funny, but was worth buying.......

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