    Which brings me to this one, also within the forum. What appears to be a 6 over 6. However, I think that I can see evidence of an underlying 2, the diagonal of the 2, again in the circle of the 6. This may tie in Rob's example. Although this may just be wishful thinking.

    Thanks Jon. That's reassuring to know. I've finally found Rob's post that I was looking for, which shows an example. I can't make out the 2 under the 6. More a 6 over 6. But I think that I can see the pointy end of the 6, above the centre line of the 2.

    Not yet. Probably be a week or so before I receive it. A cropped sellers photo. Full images to follow, if that helps. Bob.

    Whilst we're here, does anyone have an F289, 62 over 26. Mentioned in the 2016 Freeman and recognised by Dracott in his 2021 update. I think I've found an example and a little piccy to show what I think I see.

  6. Purely out of interest, I've just timed my edit button. I was allowed 30 mins.

    Satisfying to see another 4+B HAIF. Mine is shown on this thread, back in Jan this year. Dracott only lists the 2+B. A decent collection of over strikes there Larry. Thank you for showing them.

    Nice one Gary. I knew you'd have one. 🙂Did it take long to find? I've been searching 6 years plus. 475's I've found 6. 473's. I've found 3. R3 and R5.

    Thanks. Maybe he is about right then. I only ask as I've just found another one. Awaiting delivery. Graded EF. Was thinking that if I'm fortunate to have 2 then maybe they were not so rare after all. It's the 1956 4 + C that's eluding me. Not hide not hair anywhere.

    Evening all. Mr Freeman gave the above coin, F272, 4 + F a rarity rating of R17. 51-100. Dracott gives it a 6 rating, which means extremely rare. 5 known to him at the time of his article. Given that Freeman admits that his scale is an educated guess. And that some years have passed since Dracott wrote his findings, does anyone have a rough idea of the quantity of F272's known please? London coins have only sold 2, that I can see..
  11. A similar problem was discussed back in 2011, in a thread titled " 1827 penny". Towards the end of the second page, a member called ' Mat ' explains contract law, in some depth. May be helpful.

    That's why I said ' of no consequence '. Just felt Oswald had been misunderstood, so, even after 5 yrs, I went and stood in his corner. I've read the majority of the forum now. Decimals was a bit heavy going. Really enjoyed the Ancients. Certainly opened my eyes to your breadth of knowledge Chris. I'm impressed. Thought about reading the Bible next but someone said that he dies in the end, so maybe not.

    Of no consequence but I think Oswald was asking if Mark still used the forum, rather than giving an ultimatum.
  14. Looks like there's another dot hiding between the V and the I, on the 61. Two for the price of 1. Bargain.
  15. I'd give it 10 yrs Chris.

    Thanks for confirmation Bernie. I'll post the reverse when it arrives.

    Just a quick one. Views on this one please. Obverse 4 or 6.? I'm thinking a 4. Don't think there's enough of the honi so O showing to be a 6 and REG is to close to the linear circle.
