  1. In the late 60's there was plenty of pre 47 silver about although I don't recall pre 20. There was also a lot of Vicky WH and Ed V11 pennies usually worn.Hardly any 1/2d's though. The highlight of beach holiday's were the amusement arcades where I would snaffle anything interesting (armed with my 4 check your change mini books) Post 71 I was more interested in using old 1/2d's in the 2p cash falls and crane grabs...I've always been a bit of a "loose cannon"
  2. The answer is More fermented grape juice After my eggs n bacon have gone down and I unravel my bank holiday plan of sorting my hammered. Blakeyboy The Sun are crying out for such talent.

    I give her a credit for persistence. Grammar and spelling....needs working on. Vivid imagination and BS.... top notch. I will report it.
  6. Auction houses,some dealers and quality of images leave a lot to be desired. In my saved sellers on ebay one dealer i have notated "crap images"
  7. Nice H/C I think you have to look at the reverse for wear indicators.(Lions and beads below the crown) and from the image look nicely struck. Poor old Georges head always gets the bag marks. Maybe a dip in some acetone would enhance? MS grade but enjoy raw.
  8. I gave up buying (even at $2 bucks to the £) a James 1 1/-. I really lost the will to live....send it normal post.Aunt Judy's Xmas card arrives every year.....and vice versa.

    When google was in the infinite stage I googled 1698 farthing everyday..both got a home back in blighty. I paid $10 Canadian for my exurge and a bit more (so called XF legend)...but I kept them and filled my collection.....well 1718,1693 a decent both G's over...just got a small trident ....can't be saying.

    Slabbing - Learnt my lesson

    It would surely be pertinent to fully describe the coin to the best of your knowledge. Maybe the ham fisted cowboy's may then look further than Krause.
