  1. Very underrated , The Alan Parson Project. "Eye In The Sky" is the album to have though.
  2. If you're only interested in the money, then they're not worth anything much. However, if you're interested in coins and varieties, there are at least 3 different varieties of the 10p and 5p in the sets, but I don't know about relative rarity of these.

    Madness' Coin Grading Training Ground

    The short answer is that die issues are very localised and will be seen in the same particular place(s) on many top grade examples. Wear tends to be more generalised, starting from the highest points of the design and spreading downwards. I'm not sure what you mean by reflections in relation to wear?
  4. Although I'm too disabled to use it now, my Ion amplifier - though solid state - was designed to give a similar reproduction to valve amplifiers.
  5. Then you should be very happy - the sole bidder is at $449 A$ (or does your $600 not include the $200 refund?)

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    It's not even a fake - it's a reproduction coin that doesn't even pretend to be a close approximation of the original. I note that "Guest's" link above now points to a similar 1909 halfcrown which IS properly described as a reproduction, though the description of "rare coin" is total BS.
  7. Yes, absolutely. You've let the bidder decide about grade and you've mentioned that it was mounted. And you've had a bid! Would that and the $200 recover your original cost?
  8. Looks promisingly hilarious - sadly I don't have 41 minutes to watch it, not right now.
  9. It's actually very nice inside, but it's not what you'd call a cathedral exactly, not for England's second city especially when you consider Liverpool's two.

    Ok, I'm not looking at other answers so this is entirely off the top off my head. The £9 is rather misleading. They should have paid £25/3 = £8.33 each plus a 66p share of a £2 tip to the waiter. I.e. £9 each IN TOTAL including the tip to the waiter. So they actually paid the waiter £3 too much.

    Best Decimal Coins to collect - thanks, Chris

    It could be the Mint is slow to issue the full figures? I remember in the late 70s seeing that the figure for 1976 50p's was less than a million, and I started collecting them avidly (though oddly I never questioned that there were plenty out there). It later turned out that that was a provisional figure only and in the end there were millions.

    Still are, surely?

    Best Decimal Coins to collect - thanks, Chris

    Indeed it is. However, I'm utterly amazed that it took you 4 years to find in your change a coin of which there were 10m minted. Something doesn't quite square...
  14. I have since found the "index" and uploaded it to Dropbox. https://www.dropbox.com/s/wf4g1xl056jj3p2/BNJ contents 1-80 (index of sorts).pdf?dl=0
