  1. See a penny, pick it up...

    No, I think you'll find it's VIC+D:G.+D:+1860
  2. 1. There are - as you've said - many varieties of Will III silver coins, and rarity will determine the relative prices 2. They are just guides - as you've said - so need to be taken with a pinch of salt, and two eyes on how the prices were compiled 3. Buy one guide and stick to it. If your interests are George III onwards, then CCGB (link in the banner ad above) is both cheap and comprehensive. If your interests are wider British, then Spink's annual catalogue is "the bible". If your interests are global, then Krause, though bear in mind Krause is not comprehensive for varieties, and their prices don't reflect local values but more what a foreigner might pay for coins of a particular country.

  4. US Grading vs UK Grading.....

    No, you're thinking of something else, e.g. die clash. 'Bag marks' are just what it says on the tin - newly minted coins are bagged up and sent out to banks etc. This mass rough handling of BU coins can lead to scratches (usually minor) or small dinks on the edges, but not the effect you see above which is either caused as part of the strike itself or is post-Mint damage such as delamination or deliberate act.
  5. US Grading vs UK Grading.....

    Sorry, but what you've ringed in red are NOT bag marks. Bag marks could be any of the scratches which you haven't ringed. The ringed sections look like delamination, post-Mint damage, or even damage caused by die damage or bits left by the previous strike. To repeat - bag marks are simply the kind of minor scratches and / or dinks caused by coins rubbing loosely against each other in a mint bag, hence the name.
  6. It was the phrases "Pretty disgusting and sordid" and "the link to Trump" that seemed rather obvious.
  7. (1) is quite obvious with experience, and if you see an obverse 6 side by side with an earlier obverse.

    ROFL Even when I was collecting from change in the late 60s, I'd reject those!

    Interesting - so the next question is, what's a roof crown?
  11. Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Neither. It's a degrading E which if you look at the first E of PENSE, is also going rather skewy.

    Unfortunately that doesn't help you - it could be either.
