    more FAKES

    I had listed some lots of Halfpennies and pennies, identified by Freeman numbers and ebays' bots kicked it out as using numerical grading..... I had to change it from F number to Freeman number to get it to list....

    1861 halfpenny - Freeman 277 ?

    There are times that it looks like an obverse 6 too.... You have the coin in hand so I'll defer to your assessment. Images can be deceptive even with no deception intended....

    1861 halfpenny - Freeman 277 ?

    Image looks like a 7 & G, F-282.. Can't be sure unless it's in hand

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Technically, by ebay policy, this listing should not be allowed, inasmuch as it is being listed with a numeric grade not assigned by an officially recognized grading service. Number two, without having the references handy, I believe a Poor-1 needs to be identifiable to some minimal degree. This coin does not fit that description .... That being said, I can appreciate the humor of the listing, as I have similarly had "world's worst coins" listed in the distant past....

    Freeman 13 inverted V for A in Victoria?

    That's always the final determinant Richard, and I erred in reading it as "inverted V instead of A".. That being said, I distinctly see a crossbar so, my amended observation is, it is not an inverted V for A, although there is a possibility that it could be an inverted V over A, reinforcing the A. A close examination with coin in hand would be the determining factor.

    Freeman 13 inverted V for A in Victoria?

    Looks like a normal A with a weak crossbar.... I've seen many like that...

    I should have added: "Nor could I afford it..."

    So would I. However, inasmuch as I only collect circulation strikes and do not actively pursue proofs nor patterns, I'm not losing any sleep over it.

    I guess I was being redundant. As you stated, incorrect image. But the coin in question is correct...
  12. Bronze & Copper Collector


    Incorrect image.. so definitely NOT an F-164a

    September 2019 LCA catalogue now up

    I concur completely with your assessment. Obverse 2, reverse G, F-20

    Bad News on the Auction Front

    That would make sense....... Equality for ALL buyers, in a open free marketplace. High bid takes it, everyone pays the SAME premium. As for selling, you can negotiate the sellers premium as it would only affect the seller and the auction house, essentially a private transaction.

    Bad News on the Auction Front

    Any business will try to make the most profit that they can. Where will it stop though. It reminds me of the proverbial camel. It sticks his head in the tent to see you and before you know it he has got the whole tent, and you are on the outside looking at him....
