    Several Ships are missing

    obverse 5 is an odd one, I got a 5+g 1861 penny, noted stuff in the place, not letters but what looks like border teeth. hard to explain.
  10. in a bulk buy I got the other day, in the new coins thread £2 for this, an 1879 narrow, a decent 1937 and average 1874 i havn't checked yet

    what will they think of next???

    ideas for post brexit currency
  12. you still can't I dug out an old halfpenny from William III which i bought a few years ago as 1696... I saw it as 6 recut with a 5.. others saw just 1696, others saw 1695, if i angle it I can see either 95 or 96... then someone said 5 over 4.. which also possible. the subliminal recognition I know best is the George V modified Effigy... give me a coin with that head on head side I can see it right away, however give me a 1926 reverse side, takes me a few minutes to recognize it. I got some token in Bulgaria a few years back, with the Pentacle of Soloman on one side, the other side re carved to have the P with the X through the tail.. but with 2 X, no idea what that is... and only found 1 example of the token in the first place.... on a polish forum :/, wonder what this is for.
  13. I have been about, just been busy, did find one of my older 1862 Halfpennies I have had for ages also is B/R though whats the reverse of my 1861 penny?
  14. got these 4 for a £2 quid. the 1861 is Obverse 5
  15. got the £1 with the edge milling on the wrong side in change what is the value of that currently?

    Unusual pound coin?

    I have found a few "thick rim" ones, someone on a facebook forum found one with the edge milling UNDER the hologram.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    well yea, but most are just generic rubbish ones, and there would be more in change if everyone and their dog wasn't selling them on flipping ebay oh and.. seriously? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/George-111-Gold-coin-half-guinea-22ct-gold-4-4-grams-scrap-/302486668497?hash=item466d9c44d1:g:rjkAAOSw161Z4K~N

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    most of these £1 errors are hand done.. really wish Ebay would get rid of the thousands of 50p £1 and £2 coins listings... just clutter
  20. was looking for something, and stumbled across this I got from a while back. Halfpenny, needs to be put in here.

    My Latest Acquisition

    1972 was never released into circulation, so only proof.

    My Latest Acquisition

    if you do Lizzy.. get a 72 set. why 1935? I would go for 36, unless it is because of the crown.

    Portcullis Varieties On Decimal Penny

    the 1985 obverse, to me, seems to be different from the later ones on all the coins, text seems thinner, beads, even the strike seems different.
