    1825 George IV halfcrown

    The foot serifs on obverse lettering seem wrong. Flatter on the genuine article.
  5. Could be an ‘evasion’ type copper similar to: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/1793-evasion-farthing-token-coin-246529646 not sure who is represented by the effigy
  6. Though very impractical and outrageously expensive, this could be converted in to a beauty. https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/cheffinsfineart/catalogue-id-srche10222/lot-0b8c9de9-f6ef-4758-90b6-acf500aa8808?utm_source=sr-amp&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=cheffinsfineart&utm_term=20210412-srx-j&utm_content=srche10222-ctalot8

    Item description re toning; ..."I'm assuming this is the result of the coin living inside a chair cushion for the last 150 years or similar?.”😂
  18. 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.
