  1. 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?

    💡marley and bob hope, what a combo that was, never without each other right up to the bitter end. Don’ worry, ‘bout a ‘ting cuz every little ‘ting is iiiiiiirieeeeeeee.....
  5. Can’t claim originality unfortunately but thanks all the same Blakeyboy 😊
  6. Most people think that all testicles are pretty much the same, but there's a vas deferens.
  7. Good job they're not dipped in glitter....that would be pretty nuts

    Steep slabbing premiums

    I was only hazarding a guess there Michael, but, for whatever reason, he just sort of... sprang to mind, as it were.

    Ouch! thats really bad. Cromwell’s had a nose job and has taken to smoking forbidden herbs by the look of that eye. And he claims it is authentic. His whole stock is probably not worth 10% of what he’s asking. Quite sad really. Over 23000 sales too, smh.
  11. its the way I tell ‘em 😁
  12. I was sat on the edge of the bed last night, pulling off my boxers, and the wife said.. ”you spoil those dogs”

    Im genuinely not up on the naffness rating of these sites. Is DM considered to be used by a certain type of user? What exactly does that say about him (as if i needed to ask)

    The man behind the legend.
  16. Quite a positive editorial regarding the future of coin collecting in Coin Weekly. Looks like outrageous prices might continue for some time to come....
  17. A nostalgic diversion from loudspeakers:

    1858/3 Penny

    Honestly fascinating but boggles my mind after a while, and then I tend to see all sorts of things, for example, has anyone one spotted Vincent van Gogh peering through the hole in the 8? Or is it Our Lord Jesus visiting us via the medium of precious metals now instead of on a piece of toast. Pareidolia? That may be easy to say.

  21. Approved by ASTA - American Society of Trauma Anesthesiologists (?)
  22. Anyone bidding at DNW? Currently on DNW auction where similar outrageous prices are seen though, imho, some bargains to be had. Just won a 'probably finest known' but tbh I've seen better examples however I'm quite happy with price paid and it completed a set so job done.
