    1817 shilling 1910 shilling both UNC

    Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't been as active lately! Im revising flat out every hour god sends for the summer exams, A2 politics is rather challenging! Anyway...these two coins are really nice, especially the 1817 shilling in my opinion. The 1910 shilling has very minor surface marks either due to very light cabinet contact or just mint bag contact. I'm not going to demand a certain amount for each coin...just PM me if your'e interested ar have any questions! Many thanks, HPJ.

    The New Check Your Change 2007

    Not impressed

    The main thing to do is to make sure that you lobby them into changing the varitey description, and for them to inform all previous bidders. Make sure you keep on contacting them! HPJ.

    Happy Birthday to Jon...

    Thanks Oli... Yes tis true that I have not been "active" on the forum...however I have made a point to look every day for new posts! I spent my day doing my AS level french oral exam aswell as no less than two pointless General Studies exams (just an exam of common sense!) Anyway, no coins for me as of yet but I am saving up for the november LCF. I'm still not sure what I want to collect so any suggestions would be welcomed! Hammered looks good these days...
  5. Hello all! I found this in my change about a week ago. Utterly bizzarre, any new theories as to how it became like this?? My Ebay auction.
  6. I was in waterstones in Romford today when I saw Coin Yearbook 2006 on the shelf, after flicking casually through it I saw Mark Rasmussen's advertisment and a section detailing forthcoming coins for sale in his 'Winter list' He will be offering a 1933, and Edward VIII 1937, and a 1952! Now thats a rare trio if ever I saw one!

    Caring for coins

    There is the theft issue but I dont think that it should influenece your descision too much, if your coins are stolen by the common struck dumb teenager, they may appear on ebay or even at a dealers door. If they are stolen notify all nearby dealers and keep a sharp eye on Ebay. You shouldn't let criminals stop you from presenting your collection in the best possible way...

    Caring for coins

    I keep my bronze halfpennies in capsules in a cabinet, they look rather nice . I haven't encountered any problems at all with this method, no verdi gris or new carbon spots have appeared. Also, it prevents other coins from being 'infected' by verdi gris or cabon spots. I would reccomend this method to anyone, just make sure that you ask peter to make the insersts deeper to accomidats the capsules, he was fine with it when I asked him to do it for me

    Mark Rasmussen...

    The advert didn't say which 1933 it is, we'll just have to wait and see...

    Mark Rasmussen...

    Sorry! Yes, pennies.

    four pence coin

    I presume that he is refering to the chav borrowing culture...you always see chavs on ocean finance adverts! Maybe if they sold all of their Argos jewellery they would not be so poor!

    Spink 2006

    The £5 pattern looks brilliant! If it is the one I'm thinking of I can't wait to see the cover!

    Spink 2006

    So are there any ridiculous prices this year? What is the general trend in terms of prices, are they higher than last year?
