  1. I had the same conversation with my son. I've not bought anything in weeks myself. He was asking what i figured the market would do. I said i thought it would be okay as coins usually do not suffer from fluctuations in gold or silver prices. He said what if the market is flooded with coins from the families of ppl who die. Morbid i guess but he is 16 yrs old. It was a valid point. One i couldn't answer myself as I've never known a situation like this.
  2. Seeing as the hammered sections floundering a bit i thought I'd post this one up. It's a class 1b2 coin of Henry II The moneyer is Ravl (Randulphus Frowik) at the London mint. It's slightly different than some coins as the obverse reads HENRIE instead of HENRIC. This error/spelling has been observed in coins of class 4 & 5 but not in a class 1 coin so is unique so far.
  3. It is an odd one. I can't say with any certainty which Edward it is out of III or IV. Perhaps Dave (Grunal) will know if he still uses the forum.

    Same. 3rd of April with Tesco. I popped out today. It was ugly. Shops look as if they have been looted. Nothing of use in my local Aldi other than fruit and veg. Seriously thinking of dusting the air rifle off and going out lamping.
  5. True. It is slightly less clipped than most Irish issues. I'd be speculating if i said anything else. There's not much to go on but i think i can see RA which would tie in with EBORACI.
  6. There's also the possibility it could be an Irish issue of Edward IV. Try looking through some of the examples on the PAS website.
  7. I can't see how they sell much at all. They have some interesting descriptions of stock but with no pictures i won't touch any of it. If your too lazy to take and upload pictures your not getting my money.

    Just thought I'd give anyone interested in short cross coinage a heads up. Gerry Slevin has published his new revised edition of short cross legends. Its a good read and he's added a Rhuddlan section to it. Well worth the upgrade from the original in my opinion. If anyone is interested it's available from Regton.com.
  10. Its not Iohan. Its Adam. It will be a class 7 coin of Henry III.
  11. Iohan struck coins under King John at London mint in class 5b1. He ceased at that mint in roughly 1206 and no further coins after 5b1 where struck at London in his name.
  12. She speaks sense. Great point of view. 👏

    These westairs are getting better. Quite convincing other than the stamp. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Late-Anglo-Saxon-Aethelred-II-Silver-Long-Cross-Penny-AD-978-1016-Very-Fine/254179165678
