  1. 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.

    Yes, I know, as it is with stamps,  it's all about editions and 'collect 'em all' but I guess I'm just a little too set in my ways to see the attraction.

    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.

    To me the coin is probably genuine, but not a ‘touch piece’ of course.

    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?

    Looking at Heritage, the new owner is now actively seeking offers of $1287 or more - so only 30% more than a price that was already 4 or 5 times higher than you'd expect to pay.

    I know nothing about these sort of things , but apart from it being highly overpriced , it also looks like a really poor fake  .

    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.

    The man behind the legend.




    I'm not sure he's started shaving yet. 😁

    Update: I retract. His ebay photo must be more recent as it shows him sporting face fluff.

    The dailymotion Huummmmmm

    Sez it all LOL:lol:

    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)
