  1. Just got this- cheap and no real excitement, until I looked closer in. I'm crap on 1860's, but this appears to have the dots on the rose leaves like Gouby D, but the colon dots after D:G: to a gap, and D of F:D to a tooth, like Gouby E... The both sides are littered with broken letters too......any views? I'm trying to see if it needs to go in the collection or not and I'm stumped....
  2. I mean Frankie Boyle!
  3. The more I see of him, the more he impresses me with his ability to think up the most bizarre things at the drop of a hat.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I resemble that remark...!
  5. As Frankie Boyle said " Donald Trump is nothing like Adolf Hitler- there's no way he could write a book".....

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    He's been 'informed' about about that coin by loads of people!
  7. That is 'Bizarre Happening of the Week' What a head scratcher....looks like it happened in France or Quebec... My update pack felt like some paper in a pile - what would that 'feel' make someone think that it was valuable?

    Genuinely troubling. Buy that man a pint!

    Goubys The British bronze penny .

    Party Seven, anyone? Eurghhhh. Only weak Springfield was passable as a 'Summer Gulper'. Bloody dimple glasses, ghastly beer, horrible brown pubs. Don't miss 'em one bit. Bathams still only have 19 outlets or thereabouts. The waiting list is probably 30 years. They don't want to get bigger and have the entire company tax structure change, so the beer suffers. The bottled is good, but the draught in a pub is extraordinary. My wife likes good beer, and as a treat on our way home from the midlands I stopped at the Plough in Shenstone, so she could have her first Bathams. It did her head in. She could not believe it.....

    Ah- left the area in 1986- no work in town- I'm in Milton Keynes now... I was on the last BR train on the SVR line in 1962.....Erica and I decided to go shopping in Bridgnorth, which is always fun, but we went on the SVR- what a wonderful day out. Everyone should do it. They even had Bathams Beer on the train!!!! Best beer in the Midlands.

    Here's me, a Kidderminster lad, and I didn't spot the carpet connection...I'm slipping....hopefully the £700 an optician got out of us this morning will give me Superman vision, and maybe better comedy insight skills!

    Goubys The British bronze penny .

    It's been reported this week that his tax return shows $70k to his hair stylists... I always assumed, looking at him, that Pratt and Whitney had done it......

    I'm waiting for my update pack. The email from Michael says it's roughly 43 double sided pages, replacing pages 33 to 94, plus other bits and bobs.

    Agreed. I had the ultimate insult from BT last week. I send emails to me, putting what I want to remember in the heading only. BT put my email to me not 'Junk'.....my wife thought it was funny....
  18. Sad but true.... is the pig the leader of the Free World then?
  19. When it gets to 200Kg, and you're not going to put that in the loft, and you need the money, it's difficult not to weigh it all in....
  20. Ha! No- they see old pennies and know what they are. I'm not the only guy who brings them uk bronze coinage at that yard, apparently.
  21. I have an EMR account for cable and alloys, and I get 'Heavy Copper' without asking each time I weigh in currency bronze....

    Thames Find

    By the Thames, our member Mr Danelaw, Spend many hours whilst looking at the floor. And there to his surprise, upon the bank, he realised that he'd found an ankh. Perhaps it's from a ship that sank?
