    That's fine - you've signalled contrition, but there was absolutely no need.  

    Indeed, Beeching got the job, but just didn't deliver the goods. His stock with the public was soon rolling downwards. In wrestling parlance so many would have liked to put him in a sleeper hold. Anything but a first class performance, and the long suffering public were railroaded into acceptance. Sadly he destroyed many lines in a permanent way.

    not only that - he wasn't even a railwayman, just an industrialist brought in to "do a job". :(

    Yep- silly old buffer was a bit derailed- he didn't have a loco motive- he wanted us to believe him, but he lacked a suitable platform.

    I haven't expressed myself well - maybe I need a coach.

    Sorry for blowing off steam- hope you didn't lose track of what I was trying to say.

    Don't shunt me out of the way- I like to feel people are siding with me....

     

    I can only apologise....

  3. I think that not studying die wear and faults on bronze strikings carried out by Heaton before 1860 is a mistake.

    The die variations and reasons behind them may well be more easily explained if earlier foreign bronze coinage was studied to the extent 

    that bronze UK pennies and halfpennies 1860-63 have been.....

    also it becomes more difficult on ebay as the word counterfeit or Contemporary copy hits the alarm filter maybe.  I also dont seem to have seen too many lately 

    All my interesting fakes came through buying mixed tins of crap when the silver price was low years ago, before it rocketed upwards.

    I would buy interesting piles of stuff- accumulations, rather than collections, and often there would be tokens and fakes mixed in.

  5. My wife constantly complains how everything is monetised now, and how there are no staff running a business any more- we do their job for them,

    and put up with this sort of crap....

  6. I had an email from the idiot, and he suggested that I only posted this because I have too much time on my hands.

    The uninformed twat doesn't realise that no-one on the forum has time to waste being ripped off....typical unprofessional seller-

    everyone's a bloody expert nowadays, when actually real experts are thin on the ground.

     

    And on this forum.

  7. I finally got my money back.  Finally.  I had to pay to return the coins, which is taking the p*** after being ripped off.

    They are STILL using the picture!!!!!!!

    They are either crooks, or stupid people who have no clue as to what they are selling.

    There is a funny side- this is their own picture, presumably, so it looks like they sold an F169 for £3.99.....

    ...anyone on here got it?


  8. The world is full of people who have no useful skills.

    They are, however, very good at 'having opinions' so they are noticed, but only when saying things that are controversial or simply untrue.

    People then spend time trying to win logical arguments with them, giving them the oxygen of publicity they need.

     

    So, the best policy is to ignore them.

    I've got a feeling it's somewhere just after WW2 when rationing was still going.

    It's not the good carbs that get kids fat - it's the processed crap......


  10. This is now surreal.

    I've had to get used to the prices of certain audio gear going through the roof, as in a  mixing desk being £400k etc, 

    you can understand it to some extent,  but this mad coin frenzy makes no sense, and will crash horribly, surely...............
