    The bronze in your pocket 2021 pocket change

    £2.80 of bronze is a kilo, which would maybe get you No.1 or Heavy copper price, so around £5.40 ish. How you would disguise the coins as just bronze /copper turnings etc. is another matter, as is the illegality....
  2. I am pleased to award you 'Blakeyboy's Line of the Month'. Not bad, seeing it's only just the 16th....

    ..a bit like the theory behind the halide cycle in halogen lamps. However......a new filament is shiny, but an old filament is very granular in appearance, since the re-deposition of tungsten isn't a nice new layer, more following the crystal structure i presume, so the re-deposition of silver will surely make the surface of the coin look different?
  4. Hooray! Thanks Mike! I'd given up hope of ever owning one....
  5. Such a looker when she was younger. Now she's just a scalpel freak. So sad when that happens.
  6. I never saw Genesis- they had moved on to the commercial crap by the time I felt like going. I saw Hackett many times and would again, so long as he has lost that TERRIBLE vocalist in the video. Who is it?
  7. Can I pretend it was mine?

    More Pennies

    I just tried to find the 1882 on Baldwin's site, but no luck searching for 'penny', since 'penny' isn't used in the coin's description. '1882' as a search term went straight to it. Are there other pennies in the auction that are similarly 'hidden'?
  9. Bitcoin really can be the 'Mal' in 'Malarkey'......
  10. We lost a good David Robert Jones in 2016, now we've lost another... I didn't know the man, but I 'm going to miss his posts on this forum.
  11. ah...I just uploaded one fine, to the uploading pictures problem thread, but, reading this, made me realise that I just had an image, emailed it to myself, so I could control the image size, and dragged it into the post. I didn't use and folders/menus etc. No problems. And that first sentence had SEVEN commas!!! SEVEN!!!!! I used to go out on Friday nights. Now I stay in, drink heavily, and get excited online by English punctuation. Mother of God.... I want to have my hair cut. Dunno why...I haven't got any...but this was years ago.... she asked what I wanted, and I said "do something to make me look sexy", so she started drinking....
  12. Canna 'Shenandoah'. Tricky and delicate but wonderful. Pics upload seems fine.....
