    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Only on the coins, not in real life, obviously.

    Feng shui

    Ahh...right...but maybe any French involvement is a herring rouge, and the 'schwa' is indeed the culprit. It does seem very odd....
  4. Now, the reason you could read the heading is because it's westernised. A bit like what the French did in Vietnam- they made everyone write words in western characters so they could be pronounced by westerners. So-- 'Feng Shui'.....why not "Fung Shuei", as it's bloody pronounced??? Which is the whole point of giving it a western spelling in the first bloody place!!! It makes no sense whatsoever!! Anyone here have a clue as to what's going on there?

  9. Strange but true - this week, in Milton Keynes, a fireman stuck up a tree was rescued by cats.

    I know, i know...the last thing I always wished I could afford to collect was always Victorian Silver. Now I steer well clear.

    I'm not sure you can put more than just text on an Ebay Guide...

    Greetings! I haven't been here that long, but it's a big part of my time on the web. Join in and read what people have said about your particular coins of fancy. Some people on here know so much about the subject it's scary- don't let that put you off- no-one ever gets talked down to. Some people here can afford amazing coins- don't let that put you off either. If you find something that you think is interesting, chances are it will be appreciated. Blake

    That's odd- I have a bag of contemporary forgeries that I was going to shift, and I typed 'contemporary forgery' into ebay and loads appeared.....
