    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    As always, it comes down to knowledge and perseverance, whether it's ebay or anywhere else. You need to know what's common and what's not and what's a general price for something that you're prepared to pay. I've just picked up something from France at what I feel is less than I'd pay here at auction. I might regret it - their photos are rather harsh, however it's also illustrated in a book where it looks better, so I took a gamble. However I've spent the last few days finding examples and seeing what they sold for so I feel relatively confident. I aim to keep my search parameters quite wide in the hope that I'll pick up mis- or poorly identified pieces as well as those correctly classified. And I don't buy to sell, so I have the luxury of being prepared to pay 'collector's' rates and not worry about profit margins. I guess what I'm saying is that we all need a buying strategy and working out how much crap you're happy to look at in the hope of finding something desirable is worth considering.

    hoard uncovered

    Yeah, there looked as if there might be some nice pieces there. Hopefully a better overview of the contents of the find will be posted in a bit.
  3. If I had to guess it'd be Peter Mitchell (right two/Baldwins) due to the slightly square shaped 5 and S in ESC Paul. Left one, no idea.
  4. Just seen this thread. Wonder if this is why the emails I've sent to either of your addresses just get bounced back Rob? Unless you don't use them any more?
  5. Just wondering if anyone here bought any of the pennies from RGT's collection? DNW 10 Dec 2009 and also March 2010. Alternatively (!) R H Thompson who might have owned a hammered shilling of Charles I? I'm interested to see a Thompson ticket, if such a thing exists. Long shot perhaps, but ... Anyone? Thanks!

    DNW Auction Catalogue 29 Jan 2020, Lessen Part 3

    Thank you. Message sent.
  8. Catalogue 168, The North Yorkshire Moors Collection of British Coins formed by Marvin Lessen Part 3. Anyone have one they no longer want? I didn't order one as I wasn't expecting to need it, but it'd be nice to have a physical copy. Also ... anyone know if DNW catalogues are a one off price each? Last time I paid £18 for one I got sent the subsequent catalogues for over 6 months and wasn't sure if that was normal, or they did so because I'd bought from them in the past and might be persuaded to do so again!

    TICKET CENTRAL

    Late in the day, but isn't the right hand ticket one by Paul Dawson?

    I've merged the Brexit comments with Azda's Brexit What's Happening thread so this one can be kept for books. You can find them here: http://www.predecimal.com/forum/topic/12991-so-brexitwhats-happening/ Cheers. *Waves at Dave and returns to listening to Rammstein*
  11. The site hasn't worked properly for me for ages, irrespective of which browser I use. I can't 'like' posts though I see others have, I can't upload pictures .. various other issues but I'm not on here often enough now to fret about it...
  12. I've seen three shillings, all Triangle mark with this legend Rob, a G1/1 and two G2/2s. Curiously(?) the G1/1 and one of the G1/2s are from the same obverse die, but the other appears to be from another ... Not managed to obtain a nice example yet though.
  13. Afraid not, though I admit I was tempted a bit. This is off Lloyd's site. I'm still saving the pennies for a really nice Charles I shilling .. ideally one that just appears at a bargain price somewhere only I see it! 😀
