  1. Interesting - the example shown on the RM website appears to be Heritage LOT #31238.

    Erm.. you do know that Fred Scuttle IS Benny Hill don't you?
  3. GEF wouldn't be outrageous. I could never understand this being a 'key date'. There were 6m of them, and CCGB doesn't even rate it as high as 1921 and 1922. But if it fills a gap, you've picked up a nice example.

    I'd trust Fred Scuttle more though.
  5. Nice one - EF I'd say. One thing though, I really don't believe this date is difficult, not even in high grade.

    Give me the choice of one coin from your collection, and I promise not to relay this to Mrs Mike.
  7. FWIW I don't myself think a fingerprint knocks 60% off the value of a coin. 30% perhaps...

    He obviously wanted expert advice on how to get 0 bids on all his items!
  11. It wasn't Apple - You Tube obviously changed something in their browser operation that forced an app download instead.
  12. I couldn't search for anything in You Tube on my iPad. I had to download their wretched app before it would work.

    1844 6 over 8 in date.

    Pictures upload as they are on your computer. Yes, it does look like an overdate though hard to see upside down. "I'm calling it 6 over 8 because it looks to me like the 8 is struck over the 6." Illogical, Jim.

    NGS Grader Had a Bad Day ?

    On a good day. The only thing in its favour is that the obverse looks as if it's been Mint toned?

    Farthing pickup at brum

    Remember the Guardian Royal Exchange company? Their logo was an owl and their phone number ended 282820. Damn clever!

    Car boot sales/markets in West Wales

    Ah. That's a unique type using advanced minting techniques for its time. I'd say neither early milled nor machine age, but a one-off somewhere between the two.

    The best for many miles. A worthy rival to York and London.

    England? They use a different system in Scotland, Wales and N Ireland?

    Isn't 40% Fine on the Sheldon scale?
  21. Not at all - you may not have encountered our friend who was here for a while, but developed what can only be described as an 'interesting' theory that the Mint somehow watermarked coins with effigies of lion heads and / or lambs, and that these can be detected using various detection methods and equipment. Or was it all a bizarre dream I had after consuming a too-strong curry one evening?
