    1696 William III Shilling error

    Are error shillings with 2 x S in GVLIELMVS and possibly 2nd A over V rare?

    1763 Northumberland shilling

    Can any of you guys tell me if this is real please? The bidding seems a bit on the low side just now at about £51. Thank you. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1763-Northumberland-Shilling-/275059359615?mkcid=16&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0&redirect=mobile

    1708 Queen Anne shilling

    Thanks Rob for getting back to me. Yes your quite correct, I can see now under a loupe that the edge has a faint diagonal milled edge all the way round and the filing down would be why it is a wee bit underweight. No sign of it being mounted on the edge although it could have been in one of them mounts that doesn't damage the coin, so as you mentioned filed down so it would fit and hence it having a shiny smooth looking appearance in hand. Thank you

    1708 Queen Anne shilling

    Recent ebay purchase. 5.85g Looks all wrong from smooth edge, strange looking rims and casting flaws, not to mention the 17 is missing.

    1825 George IV halfcrown

    Yes I noticed that as well Diaconis. Lined up with other coins of that year it just looks odd.

    1825 George IV halfcrown

    Would i be right in saying that this halfcrown that just sold on ebay, as well as not being Roman or a shilling, is in fact a fake? https://www.ebay.com/itm/154393540815

    1818 George III halfcrown

    Can any of you guys advise me if this coin is real or fake please? Everything seems ok with it regarding weight and dimensions, but it has what looks like white stuff on it on the bottom of reverse. Thank you.

    1885 Queen Victoria shilling

    Hi Could this be a D over U in FD? Thank you.

    1886 Queen Victoria shilling

    I received this in a joblot. Weight 6 grams and 23.5mm dimension. What would cause this mark on it? Thank you.

    1872 Queen victoria shilling
