    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    "Go and tell your Master that if he gives us food and shelter for the night he can join us in our quest for an 1827 penny" "Well, I'll ask him, but I don't think he'll be very keen - he's already got one. you see..." "What????"

    What what what what what???!!??? ( For all you F, M & B fans out there )
  3. 'Stunning' sums it up. It's stunning for an 1874, but it's a f69!!!

    Coin robbery in Birmingham

    This is horrible news. How would anyone expect to be able to sell the coins, unless they already have someone who buys the result of a robbery?
  6. Time this was wheeled out again, I feel. It is my favourite, and just sums it up for me, sadly.

    Coins for 70th Jubilee

    My god what did they spend it all on ? Most folks of that era lived quite frugally as they lived through the war years - bet they had a lovely garden and nice holidays !! Exactly!! When we cleared the house, we found fifteen potato peelers in the kitchen!! I mean the utensils, not hired staff:-)

    Oops- I didn't mean to infer that Mike is a 'worn example'. Just thought I should make this clear!

    Coins for 70th Jubilee

    I just like the silence that results just after pointing out the King's lack of clothes.....

    I maybe see one very couple of years. Mike tipped me off about the last one- a worn example, but clear.

    Coins for 70th Jubilee

    Yes, when you look at my parents- middle management and a headteacher- £40k a year coming in when they were both 92....! By the time I was starting a private pension, in the early 90's, that beano by the 'Golden Generation' was well and truly over. Now it's bizarre ancient history. Young people now are often advised not to get a pension what are they supposed to do then? How that's going to work out when half the population will be over 65 in a few years time is anyone's guess..... My pension is a molehill of beans.
