    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    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
  3. Yes and Italy have assured Nigel Farage they will not vote in favour of an extension so it's unlikely to be extended.

    Richard I ???

    It's probably ABEL as the ON starts just before the six oclock position. SAMVEL would extend further round the coin.

    Abel would also end in an L. The portrait has the vacant look in the eyes you see on class 5c coins of John.

    Help with Roman bronze coin

    I rarely buy Romans myself but it's hard to resist if a good British mint coin like London or Colchester pops up cheap. Nice buy for £8 that well found.

    It would. It's not listed in spink as being rare. I'd bet if i dug my Brooker Collection book out it wouldn't be either. The anchor mintmarks not rare that i am aware of. Have you seen the price of his other sixpence? That's way over the mark as well. Stu.

    Totally agree Frank. See it every day now with people claiming varieties that they are not. I'd stretch to £300 for it myself if it was suitable priced. People like that sell very little I'd guess at prices like that.

    Well it's certainly not worth that much lol. In VF my old 2016 Spink book puts it at £500. It's america though , they seem to pay silly money over there for common coins. A fool and their money is easily parted i guess. Anyone in the know will give it a cursory glance and gag at the price and move on i suspect. Ebays full of dreamers like this seller unfortunately.

  10. It looks like an Indian gold fanam of some sort. Not something i am familiar with myself so can't provide a full ID. Stu.

    Elizabeth I Milled Sixpence

    Coinery does make a good point here i must agree. I think though for clear peace of mind I'd go with the return and refund , the what if factor will niggle away at you if you keep it and it could come back on you in the future if you try to sell it. As Jerry says do invest in some jewellers scales for future purchases and most of all " Do not let this put you off collecting" Stu.

    First hammered coins

    They are not something i am familiar with myself. I've only ever viewed them in books or online but I'd agree it does not sit well on closer inspection. Those letters should not be single dot punch marks.

    First hammered coins

    Agreed. I was viewing it on my phone. As you say they look like single dot punches on closer inspection. Could it be a contemporary forgery?

    Excellent. Well done. It's very rare i ever find any decent coins in charity shops. I think a lot of it's picked up by staff or they hold it back for regular customers.
