  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  6. 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!

    Late in the day, but isn't the right hand ticket one by Paul Dawson?
  8. All of us will have no doubt benefitted from a few books about coins whether it's just a price guide like CCGB or Coins of England to something more in-depth like Peck. A few members have also commented that old auction sales catalogues can be an interesting and useful resource. So I thought it might be helpful to have a thread where people can make recommendations of anything literature related they feel others might find of interest. .

    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*
  10. 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...
  11. Yes, it's only a very slim chance but .. I wondered if anyone here (dealers in particular) had encountered Shuttlewood 329 (SNC Vol CIX 2 April 2001 HS0329) in their travels? The reason I ask is I'm still trying to pin down the provenance for this: I suspect it might be the aforesaid coin which is described as "Shilling type 4.4. m.m. (R), bust 1. Sharp G1/2; N.2232; S.2843. Untidy strike on a squarish flan. VF for this. " However that particular shilling wasn't illustrated and there were no coin tickets with the Shuttlewood coins and no weights or die orientation given in the descriptions! The only basis for my suspicions are that this coin was originally listed in a dealer catalogue along with Shuttlewood 323, so the timing is right. Sadly I didn't buy it at the time and when I checked the dealer's assistant was unable to find purchase details for the coins in that list. The dealer I bought it from subsequently has since ceased trading. Not much to go on I admit and still inconclusive I know. In fact the the only conclusive thing would be to confirm that this coin isn't the Shuttlewood one by finding that somebody else has that one (or did own it at any time after April 2005, when I acquired the coin above!) Anyone?
  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! 😀

    Any clues?

    Ha! There you go Rob.

    I wish I knew how to post pictures .. it'd be much easier. [

    Any clues?

    Danish 8 Skilling? Ot possibly not that exact demonimation, but similar .. https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces108569.html
  17. Just for you Stu. A nice hammered penny!

    Long Shot .. Shuttlewood 329 Shilling.

    Oh, I'm not too worried about tooling. It's very similar to Ashby 2206 and some of the later 'Briot' Brooker shillings such as 550-553, all of which have that odd beard and crude features. Sadly I can't find the facility to upload pics from my laptop any more, but Rob's Sun coin shows the same sort of 'pared down' artistry. I guess I'll just have too be content that it fits the 'crude' and 'square' criteria! 😀

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Less a fake. More a copy. It's a modern replica of a Victorian coin. Comparisons with a genuine Victoria penny show numerous subtle differences that, with experience, are easy to spot.

    The Value of Charity

    As a member, I'm inclined to agree. Larry has voiced his opinion and contributed some useful information about charities. But this thread is getting to be more about semantics and I'm not sure it's going anywhere. Please can we get back to discussing coins now?
  22. Apologies. I am still around, though busy with other things so don't get on here as often as I used to. I've also had internet problems (I think it's my age ) and can't always view pictures in threads. I see Rob has been providing answers though so I'm sure any Chas I shilling related questions will be resolved if I'm not here.

    Recent Hammered Acquisitions

    Without meaning to be rude Stevo, but why do you want to slab it? (You might have noticed that slabbing isn't that popular in the UK) Careful handling will preserve it fine without a slab (and you'll be able to insect it better). I keep my Charles I shillings in a tray in a cabinet so I can pick them up and look at them when I wish. Though a nice coin, it's not so valuable that it needs preservation. And if to sell, the cost of slabbing would have to be offset against the gain you'd make selling it raw. Just curious. T
