    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Ebay, it's not ALL that bad, is it? Let's post some coins that we're happy we picked up on that much-maligned den of iniquity. I'll start. I picked up this Cromwell shilling in 2002 and I was very pleased with it at the time. I think it has been lightly cleaned at some time but is re-toning nicely. Prooflike fields. It wasn't a bargain, in fact, double EF book at the time😲. My inexperience led me into an adrenaline-fuelled bidding war.
  7. I experienced that coins had been sold and the website had not been updated to reflect this, it was disappointing.

    Goubys The British bronze penny .

    Heard a rumour that Donald Trump also collects British pennies and is in the process of compiling a comparative index of types. It will be called Gobby's The British bronze penny. Sorry

    Cleaned or not?

    This morning there were three good grade sixpences for sale on the WAG auction site. I didn't bid on them but noticed that all three (Geo. IV) exhibited similar spotty toning. What causes this? Have they at some time been cleaned?

    It could be a 'She' Rob This offering from the same seller made me titter https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/pretty-little-thing-off-shoulder-red-dress-size-10-but-stretches-to-12-and-14/333710394247?hash=item4db2b08387:g:fmwAAOSwmyBfU0Ft I'm sure it would stretch to a 16 or an 18 too if you put your mind to it.

    Just had a little bit of fun: - start at the bottom ME You too my friend, all the best. frli_9876 Honestly, i have no idea what your talking about lmao. But if he rings i’ll be sure to answer. have a nice day. ME I've notified the Vatican. If the Pope rings don't hang up, it's not a scam frli_9876 Honestly this is a miracle. My father works with scrap cars and brings back a ton of old coins. I was looking through them out of curiosity and began to google some of them and boom, I discovered a rare coin had teleported itself to my sofa. ME That same coin is for sale on JN coins, must be a miracle that it has teleported itself to your sofa LOL
