    I've just discovered the sun shining onto the date of an 1863 penny. Must be a die clash of border teeth, I guess.

    The M1 and the A1 are in a bar having a drink when a stretch of red tarmac walks in. "Who is that?" asks the M1. "Oh, watch out for him - he's a real cycle path!" replies the A1.

    Not the greatest coin in the world but I was pleased to pick up this 1904 Sixpence in an album full of otherwise scrap coins last week. Seems to be a scarcer date too. A slight upgrade for me:

    Rather pleased to have obtained a 1918H penny with a fully struck up breastplate and reasonable hair detail. It's very difficult to find specimens with a good strike to both obverse and reverse. This one is otherwise only about EF, with a tiny trace of lustre in the legend, but it's the rest of it which appealed to me. My previous one was not as good, and has been consigned to the oddments drawer.

    I've seriously taken up boxing competition as part of my fitness regime. I had to go for a Medical as part of the insurance, and the doctor told me I'd got Sugar Diabetes, and I told him that in the form I was in, I'd win by a knock out.......

    My eldest daughter was asked by her teacher, 'If the plural of hippopotamus is hippopotami. What is the plural of whataclotamus?' To which she immediately replied 'It's a whataclotareyou'. Result - 15 minutes extra work. Most unfair given the mental flexibility shown.

    That reminds me Years ago a lady friend was looking for an old Cliff Richard tune, “Two lips and seven kisses”. I remember her ringing around several local record shops to no avail. Then she rang a shop in the next village, “Do you have Two lips and seven kisses?” she asked. It all went rather quiet the other end for several seconds, then all of a sudden a male voice came back, “No love but i’ve got two balls and seven inches” Rather surprised, she asked “ is that a record?” to which he replied “ no love, it’s just above average” and hung up.

    Information from Google. "George III brass 'spade' guinea card counter. 1790. Rev. C.W.B. & Co. Birm. Neilson 6910. The standard 'spade' design along with a spurious date is given. The legend reads: .C.W.B.ET.CO.DG./I.REX.F.D.B.I.R.M.1790. This garbled legend actually gives the maker's name, C.W.B & Co. (Charles William Bagnall) and the place of manufacture, 16, Hockley Street, Birmingham."
