  1. Dear Jaggy

    I have been struggeling with the 1887 sixpences for several years. I am not worried about all the R/V R/I or JEB on trunk, these are the basics from Davies. I am concerned about The filled crown on the reverse which seems to have two obverse dies. I am listing 7,8,9,10 obverse varieties of R/I inc A/A. I am worried about the different obverses that go with type three reverse and indeed the two main varieties of type 3 reverse. Would you be a good person to talk to? Looking at your profile picture you seem to know a bit about 1887 and wonder if you got anything from the sale of Alfred Bole sixpences sold by DNW.

      Last question is it struck     ˄˅ or ˄˄    and could it be Tin?

      Always keep me in mind when you are ready to do a swap or sale. 07967505509

      Splendid. It is always good to have provenance. I would be interested in this coin. Perhaps for cash or a combination including some other rare sixpence such as the 1887 A/A or the 1887 filled crown proof with 110 bead reverse. The mule of obv. R/I with type 3 SIX PENCE reverse might be one you don't have. I must say I have only seen 3 in my life.

      Thank you for your prompt reply. Is your spink and son 6d with the plain edge and does it have the MADE IN BAVARIA on the edge? The only Aluminium ones I have seen are Goldbergs 5/6/05 lot 2919, DNW 12/12/05 lot 729, DNW 28/9/06 lot 868, DNW 29/9/10 lot 1845, & DNW 22/6/11

      Which is yours?
