    Speaking personally, I suppose I'd probably go for the fine 1843 if it was no colon after reg. Undoubtedly scarcer than the REG: but judging by your figures, Ian, not "vastly the rarer of the two 1843 varieties", as exaggeratedly described by one dealer. Oddly enough I had no difficulty getting a slender seven 1857, and have seen several for sale, but mostly lowish grade. The one I have is about EF, but the term "sometime cleaned, now retoning" could reasonably be applied to it.

    Agree with all the above. Given that Bramah's book was written over 90 years ago, and Peck's great work was over 60 years ago, we could certainly do with a new updated 21st century book for pre 1860 copper coinage. So many new varieties discovered since then.

    Ian, again thanks so much for the incredibly useful info in the above twp posts.. Never realised there was also a rectangular shaped down serif to the 1857 seven.

    I know someone on here managed to find one in about VF - EF, a couple or so years ago. Don't know precisely when or who though, nor on what thread. Probably "penny acquisition of the week".

    No new £2 or 2p in circulation for 10 years!

    The 2p I can understand. Not so sure about the £2. I would have thought the 1, 2, 5 & 10.

    Thanks Ian. These 4/3's are doubly difficult to identify as most don't have enough of a close up date shot to tell one way or the other, and very few are actually attributed (correctly or otherwise) as such anyway. With that said, the sloping colon and the worn hair are clearly helpful pointers.

    Some weird system fault.

    Thanks - how many have you seen, out of interest?
  12. Well what a superb day it's been today. Blue sky, sun and just comfortable temperatures. Sat out in the garden for a couple of hours. Very quiet - no birdsong now, except for the wood pigeons. Also, no planes again, after making a re-appearance a few weeks ago. Sky silent for the entire 2 hours. Bees are still at the remaining flowers, but not many wasps this year. Not round here at any rate. There were a lot late Summer last year.
