    Early January I would guess.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    If it looks like a rat and smells like a rat, it is a rat and should not be bought. Just my opinion.

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Yes, looks green. I thought that they called it green toning or patina these days😁
  4. I think that i missed out this time, 0 wins from 4 bids. London Coins website is still down, but i have not received any email from them, so i guess that it means no wins.

    Maybe the sellers could mention what the actual reserve is, before the auction finishes.

    I cannot think of anything better than counting teeth on these😁

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    I got a first edition for about £100 about 5 years ago, from Canada I think. It really is a great book.

    I think not. Just a trick of the light in my opinion.
  9. You were obviously first to spot it. I wonder what would have happened if the seller had made it an auction? Well done anyway.
  10. They certainly got their money's worth out of those early 1860's dies.
  11. Oh yes I agree Rob. Depends how many coins the seller has i suppose.
  12. Was this a buy it now or auction? Just out of interest.
  13. A nice bargain there. I am amazed that sellers do not know what they are selling sometimes.

    Of course, i should have mentioned the other engravers etc, not all down to Mr Wyon.
  15. I think that you are spot on as usual. Shame on Noonan's, but hopefully other buyers will notice what you have noticed about the 3 and 4d's.

    Well if Mr Wyon had not made any mistakes, the bronze coinage of 1860-63 would have been a lot less interesting.

    That was a brilliant sketch.

    That is some nice work with those 1856 pennies. I too was surprised at the amount of PT small dates that were found. Saltford Coins had a very nice one a few months ago.

    The 1856 plain trident have both the large date and small date, but i believe that the small date is rarer on those. However, the ornamental trident is only found with the small date as far as i know. So overall, probably the small date is slightly rarer.

    I would say small date.
  21. That was a lovely coin. It also said that it had the portrait from the 1866-1879 threepenc, so the second portrait. That would mean that it was from a later striking. Does that make sense?

    I doubt if there are many numismatists working with the police, or even been asked to help.(with there enquiries)

    1969 coin prices

    I guess that there are a few members on here that did buy coins in 1969. I was born in 1969, so that is a few years before i bought any.
