    Napalm. It's the only way.

    Bags of Roman

    They don't turn up that nice very often. I think we've had about 20 silver for some 2000 copper alloy of mixed quality.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    You misundertand Pete when he says "typical ebay seller". Rougly translated it means people who aren't sufficiently concise about their ebay dealings and who don't frequent this fine establishment
  4. Feel free to let me know when you do
  5. I'd be mighty happy with both of those!

    Royal Mint Circulation figures

    For anyone hunting down commemorative figures, they're here .. https://www.royalmint.com/discover/uk-coins/circulation-coin-mintage-figures/ Oddly not attached to the "other" mintage figures.
  7. I hate Chrome. Firefox wins.
  8. it has good instructions but you need to be a bit techy. I'll convert them all to laymans terms when I get some time, it will be scary but it isn't actually hard.
  9. Here's a useful link http://lmgtfy.com/?q=How+do+I+stop+videos+from+playing+automatically+in+Firefox%3F #DontKillMe
  10. For that, look for a content blocker and then check out how to stop the videos even loading
  11. Mozilla realised that their signing check in the new update invalidated pretty much every addon for 48 hours, so thay applied a fix sometime about 2pm GMT yesterday. I realised how much I hate the internet without Adblock

    Silver ancient coin unidentified help please

    I'd stab at something like a campania nomos or didrachm, but really not my speciality. Welcome to the forum, you are in the right place

    Weird Toning

    I'd go with the quadrums too, I think for coins you want to handle they're the best option. If you look on ebay, pay attention to the pack size. Some are for a 10 pack @ £6.95, other people have packs of 6, 5 or even 2 for that money.

    Royal Mint Circulation figures

    Yep thats the same answer I got, although they do publish the sets and commemorative figures occasionally.. perhaps they'll be up soon. (hence grab some more sets before they skyrocket lol )

    Royal Mint Circulation figures

    2017 £2 coin and 20p coin - these do exist in annual sets, so the mintage was >0 but no further clues available on how many sets were issued. Grab a bargain while you can
