    I must say, you have a lot more luck than I ever had when I was metal detecting! The best I ever got was a 1940 6d (and even then it was almost worn completely smooth!).

    Pre-1947 British Silver

    Hello all, As the title suggests, I am looking for ANY pre-1947 British Silver coins. Crowns to 3 pence and everything in-between. ANY condition sought. Happy to purchase large quantities or single items. Will pay by Bank Transfer or PayPal, sellers choice. Do let me know if you have anything you would like to move on. Cameron

    nasty digs

    When any coin gets graded like this I always ask myself the same question, how much is the plastic case worth? The answer is not a lot (in real terms) so I always avoid these 'professionally graded' examples. You are often paying a large premium for not a lot and I know many dealer friends who, upon getting a coin like this, break it straight out of the case. As for the coin, there are certainly nicer examples out there but those would certainly command far higher prices. As someone who dabbles in proof sovereigns, I would say wait out on this one.

    A Viking Rarity

    Thank you, I would describe it as a half but a 'hack half' as it were. As you are well aware the Vikings relied on a bullion economy so I would suggest that a full coin has been 'hacked' to create the right weight for a trade or purchase. However I would be open to other suggestions. PM on the way.

    Alfred the Great (871-899) Lunettes Penny

    Anglo-Saxon coinage is indeed a fascinating period of study, and in my opinion a under-appreciated area of numismatics when compared to say Bronze Pennies. However even though few people on the forum do collect to this period I still enjoy sharing what would normally just be kept in my cabinet for 'my eyes only' as it were.

    Alfred the Great (871-899) Lunettes Penny

    The following paper might be of interest to those wishing to study this coinage further, a very useful resource. http://www.britnumsoc.org/publications/Digital%20BNJ/pdfs/2008_BNJ_78_4.pdf
  9. From the collection: A rare and interesting Alfred the Great (871-899) Lunettes Penny. Obv: "+AELBRED:REX" Rev: "MON EDELULF ETA" Canterbury mint, moneyer Ethelwulf. GP.1,VAR. 2B, Lunettes A REV. Found in Danelaw '5 Boroughs'. Roxholme near Cranwell, Sleaford, Lincolnshire in 2016 (Recorded with Fitzwilliam Museum). Possibly a coin paid as 'tribute' to the Viking Great Army. Small amount of marginal flan damage but the portrait and title are intact and the coin is very stable with no further cracking. A coin which I am currently looking to move on so if you are interested, don't be shy! Cameron

    March LCA catalogue now up

    A real shambles of a catalogue, lots of quite odd mistakes with many over graded coins. Not for me this time round.
