    Collection on EBAY

    All The time has come for me to start shifting the coins on the website - I am putting them on Ebay Times are hard so if I can shift these it will help a lot! 1799 - 1837 on there now the rest will come over the next few days Cheers
  2. I can only agree with comments posted so far. The striking, if it is not cast, is weak, the lettering BP just looks wrong, the lettering is a slightly different font as the uprights are thinner than I would expect and the M is not at all like any of the other Ms on the sovereign or like the font for the S on the Sydney £2 ( 8 known). That said the size and weight are correct but how did you have the gold content assayed at 22ct. ? I would be interested in such a piece as a forgery but without provenance this must be recognised for what it is. I got a large "Chocolate Coin" for xmas it was like this!! Young head Vic on a 67 Half penny reverse lol - The choclate was good though!
  3. Scott the easiest identifier is the tide in relation to the corner of the rock. They can be found artifically darkened a lot easier, but the light finish coins, are much scarcer, but this can only be confirmed on highly lustrous coins, because they generally tone down very similarly. Here is the proper link www.myfarthings.co.uk/victoriavh1897.html

    I didn't realise it was a 6 year old post until you said that !!
  9. I just noticed this on Ebay.fr and took a punt on it £8.00 total paid for it! http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...T#ht_546wt_1165 What grade would you put it as?
  10. Funny, My wife says that all of the time when I try to talk to her about coins, usually along the lines if "what did you spend this money on?" ah well she gets it now.
  11. :huh: Silly question time fella's What exactly is W.W and where on the coin can i find it? Appologies for the stupidity of the question but its gone straight over my head? The WW is for William Wyon who modelled the head of Queen Victoria on the coin. If you look at most coins even today they have the initials of the designer. Hope that helps James
  12. Most of my collection have these errors (speaking about young head farthings) and yes they are common. That why myself and Colin don't have them on our sites - I was talking originally about the misalignment of the letters in REG
  13. I dont think so, looking at the whole coin, there are a lot looking like that. I have attached another 2 close ups, On BRITANNIAR only the First N and r appear to be OK, the rest like as you see. The trident, arm of Britannia and the Thistle etc.. at the bottom also show signs of doubling up. So looks like its a whole re punch. The Obverse is completely clear of any errors! Look at the COLON to see what I mean
  14. Hi All I am just looking at 1847 tonight and have noticed a definite difference in the lettering of REG across 3 types. I have masked the 3 for the first pic and the rest separately What do you think? Actual coins will be on www.myfarthings.co.uk I lined up on the colon !
