  7. I can't imagine that anyone would prefer a new bathroom to that penny. Well done!

  10. Yes -- German federal coins from 1871 onwards.
  11. For those who have not yet read the latest issue of Coin News, there is an excellent article written by Richard Sessions on the rare George V pennies of 1922-26.
  12. Hi Rob. I've been here all along, but just haven't had much to say. 🤐

  16. Here she is with a mature coin collector... young mr. grace
  17. Curiously, that 1882 had an estimate £ 100 - £150.

    Help with PF66 Crown 1893 price

    Absolutely agree.
  20. I suspect we may have already missed the boat on the coins of those two countries. Buy what you enjoy collecting -- what interests you. That way you'll at least gotten something out of the hobby even if the investment does not work out.

    Those dealers in the UK I have done business with have been honorable and ethical. That is because I've avoided the minority who are not. You would find the same situation with dealers in the US, Canada or any other country.
