  1. Diversification in readiness for a cashless society. They will have some good stock to peddle.
  2. I added one to basket and the RM will add a Peter Rabbit BU 50p free of charge. Don’t all rush at once.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Far from being a penny aficionado, I had to read a thread from 2013 to see that F90 is a narrow date. In that post RCL35 had just picked one up in Chicago and various estimates were bandied around at that time ranging from £2.5k to £10k. Just out of curiosity how many examples are known to exist of this type, roughly speaking?

    Interesting clip Numismatics’ nemesis, Numistacker again. What a surprise.
  5. I’ll wager that it is the efforts of the Predecimal contingent, via Ebays worst, that gave them the idea. 😉

    tea stains all down my shirt😂
  7. A part of me wanted to believe. Reminds me, whatever happened to the chap who was going to detect on an old property where a coin collection was reputedly buried?

    Exactly, who’d not spot the laurel leaf pointing toward the ‘A?, it’s always the N on the halfcrown, did these scoundrels not attend school? “On Cromwell’s halfcrown doth the wreath and crown be be’neath the N” every schoolboy knows that. what a damn poor job. Do ebay classify in levels of fakery? i’d call it a fantasy piece, does ebay define what a replica is? I don’t have the inclination to check to be honest. It reminiscent of sorting your garbage.

    @azda at least he does show the plain edge, though omitting to mention it in the text. It’s a believable out.
  10. Gentlemen, PROOF? of PROOFLIKE, like?
  11. Chequebooks at the ready
  12. reminded me of a funny quote from an old 80’s film starring Kathleen Turner, “although we may run out of Panam coffee, we shall never run out of TWA tea”
  13. Colin, Apparently Andre is still alive and kicking and behind the White Greyhound. Did he have something to do with your fougazi?
