    2021 coin found

    Get them to read the edge inscription to you if it's the skull. There is a "king and country" error.

    Happy New Year!

    May it be a happy, healthy and rewarding one for all!
  3. What @Colin88 said. I wouldn't keep that for £100.
  4. They're catching up faster than you think. Currently about 80. Kew is 110+ depending on condition. I have the 92, as for the kew, when I find one I shall have it. Screw paying that much for cuni.
  5. She wasn't a looker was she
  6. 1887 Sixpence ESC3267 JEB on truncation, would like better but online prices don't seem to reflect aution realised prices very well.
  7. it's not very toned, but it is silver, a gap filled but not as nicely as I'd like...

    I wish I wasn't working every day so that I could bung a ton of stuff up for sale.

    Coin aquisition of the week.......

    I don't think the denigrators are wrong.

    Coin aquisition of the week.......

    And another (somewhat mediocre) 1895 Shilling. Fortunately the small rose type though, so my tenner was well spent I think.

    Coin aquisition of the week.......

    I love the whole design, it must have shaken the populous at the time for being so different to everything before it.

    Coin aquisition of the week.......

    You are indeed correct. A shame I don't own the coin, but it's definitely one of my top 5 for design appeal.

    I agree with @Paddy ebay is it's own worst enemy with free listings, allowing any nobody to over-grade everything without financial impact. Joining that set is self destruction for any credible dealer or collector.
