  1. I quite agree Santa. It does look like apathy doesn't it but, in their defence, I can also imagine that it's not easy trying to catalogue a collection when you're bladdered on Moet Chandon every night. by the way, did you ever get your bathroom done?

    1953 VIP Proof set

    Did anyone else spot the great rarity amongst that little lot? Yes, a 1953 farthing with major error on reverse, a ‘wobin’ instead of a wren. Awful watching.
  3. Does the trend continue? Anyone outraged at being well and truly Spinked today? Are your Numismatic 'Circular's' still twitching? I only followed a small part and I missed out on a couple of pieces which sold at about the right price. I was thinking of picking them up as duplicates so bid accordingly, a self fulfilling prophesy, won nothing, so it could have been a complete waste of time, hadn't I enjoyed it so much.
  4. and following up...
  5. Was wondering why are there so many female archaeologists? Could it be because of their obsession with digging up the past?
  6. Hey Azda, Good to see you’re still kicking 👍🏽 (Numischtacker?)

    Mr. Grumpy.

    At least the commemorative stamp is a stamp and is current and fit for purpose, i.e, sticking on a letter. Now if ever they had the idea to make them out of Vicuna wool or Mulberry silk then we could see a similar trend in Phil Latterly.
  9. Not really my area of interest but I can appreciate pennies a lot more now, especially after following some topics on here. There are some cracking pennies coming up at Spink Feb 24th auction, a very nice Freeman 59 and 184. Will we see more outrageous prices I wonder?

    I see that they DO wear gloves when handling the slabs😬

    Edward iv

    I like to think that there would have been a contemporary significance with the ‘holey’ Ed.VI pieces. As a memento of a young King taken early, or as a talisman worn in the hope of preventing a return to Catholicism perhaps?
