  1. Even though it is MS63 (unsure whether it worth that grade), it is still ridiculously steep in price.
  2. I am ok to browse through both Lockdales n Easyliveauction site now, maybe it's just a glitch moment before.

    Possible fake 1905 Halfcrown

    Agree that it doesn't look alright. The area around ear in obverse is a bit weird too?
  4. The website is down since yesterday afternoon, so that unable to check hammered prices of lots
  5. Just received an invoice from LCA, again and again, i am so accurate in bidding at LCA😅😅. 6 out of 8 are with my max bid, 1 is only 1 step away. The remaining one which is a medal is few steps away. I think I should be more conservative (which already) in bidding next time.
  6. My result showing the same. If my bid didn't meet reserve, they are showing 1 bid n reserve not met. For the 1922 penny, the reserve maybe at 8k, 10k or 12k, only auctioneer know. I have placed bid for a medal lot with estimate at 30-35, but i remember the reserve was at 50 or 60.
  7. A real real bargain, congratulations 👏
  8. Thanks for the detailed stat research, big thumb up👍

    1969 coin prices

    Nice article, it let us have an insight of the past.
  10. Go through the catalogue yesterday, but a bit fuzzy about grading of some bun head pennies...they said UNC, but i think it is not only 1 grade below it🙄
  11. St James n Noonans (formerly DNW) for auctions in UK as well.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Same question, am i missing anything?
  13. Prefer the bottom as well, especially the better strike on reverse

    Charles III portrait

    Seems likely a very popular one, in view 1902, 1911 coronation long sets are doing well after decades.
  15. No idea why, but this is their first time to delay so long for postage, usually they send out items within 2 weeks after auction. However, i prefer delay rather than damage, if i have option😅.

    I like the 50p, and i think we have to queue at RM again next monday. Also, look forward to the 2023 annual coin set.

    Charles III portrait

    Maybe coins for circulation won't be launched till next year, however for commemorative coins, they will launch with new obverse as soon as possible to make money. Royal Mint launch new coins week by week before, they can't afford to suspend minting till next year. On the other hand, there were not so many commemorative coins decades ago comparing with now, so there is no such dilemma facing.
  18. It's from auction in jun, the items in sep were only despatched few days ago from LCA. I will send email to Semra again to see what she thinks. Thanks all for your comment n advice.
  19. I'm afraid the coin is impaired.

    Charles III portrait

    That's quicker than expect. Originally think KCIII portrait won't be available until 2023. Now, thinking whether the upcoming launch of 2023 Britannia will also with KCIII obverse.
  21. I would like to learn, in case if i discover the Scotch Tape proof coin earlier (due to capsule unable to screw) n have picture proof n the auction catalogue didn't mention it, is it possible to refuse acceptance of the auction items?
