    Rare 20p?

    I'd send it to the Royal Mint and ask them to verify it, if they do, you'll get a letter back which will confirm it, and this will give you and the buyer confidence that it's the real deal. This will also help it achive the best possible price, be it on ebay or through a major coin auction.

    Best Decimal Coins to collect - thanks, Chris

    Issued = coins released for circulation minted is what is says on the tin, different aspects of a production run - the only way I can see that what the RM says would fit what we know already.

    Green Pennies, half pennies Victoria

    No idea. I can't see that post in this thread. I haven't forgotten you either - I have tracked down 3 green pennies so far, but I know there are more and would rather visit the post office just once

    So I guess coin collecting must be subconsciously theraputic to the IT crowd

    Me too, but until then I have to continue doing what I'm doing now. 'Er indoors said so.

    Silliness of the "Un-researched Purchase" Variety

    Circled stuff

    misspelled magna carta 2 pound coin

    No edge inscription is normally indicative of a cheap copy as found here and therefore it's worth nothing at all

    I'll have a look through all my crap boxes Larry, I know I should have quite a few lying about the place.

    Best Decimal Coins to collect - thanks, Chris

    Kews seem to have been dropping with the introduction of prooflike fakes too. I think this years budget is becoming more flexible every week

    Is this PVC damage?

    Pure acetone on a cotton bud if the soap and water doesn't do it (warm+ water).
