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

    So the sellers pics are bad, you don't know what metal it is and the date is tbc. Taking a bit of a chance there then. - And also if it's for ID please start a thread of y9our own,
  2. Not the finest example going, but in hand eye appeal is very good.

    UK Election

    Personally I and the planet are eagerly awaiting the next ELE space rock. Perhaps that migh make any survivors reconsider how important this rock in space actually is. It'd probably screw the coin market though, but it would also shake up the governments all across the globe
  4. @Paddy have you started on that home made Vodka?

    UK Election

    One of my daughters was going to vote Labour. She's at uni and it seems fashionable. I asked her to look at the historic trends that follow a labour government and the reasons for those trends. I also suggested she looked at how many Tory govenerments had started wars. Oddly she changed her vote, because it turns out much of the truth about labour isn't published lol.

    That's not bad, the moon is easy to overexpose. Took me a couple of nights to get it down before a blood moon eclipse.

    Oddly it's the right way up on my computer but the forum wanted it sideways. I gave in and let technology win this once.

    50p, the actual numbers so far....

    Indeed, and even more weird is the 2019 Kew from Westminster, blue carded and cheapish .. selling fore 20-25 quid to eejits on ebay. Why don't they got to westminster and buy their own lol.
  14. As a student you can benefit from the global time difference. I've had some very good buys from ebay auctions ending in the wee hours of the morning when most people are asleep, so when you check aucttion site pay attention to the end times, if they in teh tiny hours UK time you might find you can afford/get lucky a lot more than you expect!
