    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!
  5. What @Colin88 said. I wouldn't keep that for £100.
  6. 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.
  7. She wasn't a looker was she
  8. 1887 Sixpence ESC3267 JEB on truncation, would like better but online prices don't seem to reflect aution realised prices very well.
  9. it's not very toned, but it is silver, a gap filled but not as nicely as I'd like...

    2009 Blue Peter Olympic 50p

    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.

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

    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.

    1908 F164

    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.

    It's a very appealing line, one I may stray into if or when Vicky becomes too prohibitive to me.

    A particularly nice example Sword!
  20. I have a 760D and a bunch of lenses, but after seeing what the new mobile phones can achieve, I'm starting to reconsider my direction regarding photographic equipment.

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

    Something to relieve a little part of the lockdown blues. It's taken me a while to get around to this, because oddly they seem to command a higher than average price for what should be a common issue.
  22. you people either have too much garden or too much time or both. My garden looks like it did before the fair weather. Even the locals won't go near it.

    Brexit 50p design

    They do seem to manage the odd good design here and there, but far too many commemoratives look like they've been made as toys these days.

    Brexit 50p design

    @Paddy Indeed. I also ordered an annual set from the RM - it has the Team GB 50p but they've canned the games now, so that will be a non-event for this year too

    I love it when something you pick up unexpectedly becomes a keeper.
