    One of Blo-Job's infamous quotes - "Scots should be exterminated" "All Liverpudlians have a victim mentality" (in relation to Hillsborough!) "picanninnies" "gangster letter boxes" etc etc.
  2. Sometimes rarity alone is almost enough. Look at picture postcards (which are now sent as a tiny % of olden days), and vinyl records even before the resurgence of interest in new vinyl releases. Numismatics I believe is the oldest hobby going back hundreds, maybe 000's of years?

    Yes. You can see the 'raised edge' quite clearly on the reverse image. The legend on the obverse looks good, as do many features of the portrait, but not the hair. I think it's very much a coin that needs to be seen in hand. Currently up to £640 which seems rather tasty for a 1935 silver proof.
  13. You're quite right - this is an old topic! Memories of the 1970s are more vivid than those of last year...
  14. Either a filled die or more likely, someone removing the H
