    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    I stopped by Michael's shop in Notting Hill (before he moved), to deliver a 1877 Narrow Date Penny I had sold to another collector from Great Britain (Cardiff, Wales). It was a real pleasure to meet him in person. My wife and I were touring Great Britain at the time. You have a beautiful country.

    Michael, Is this 1911 a Gouby-X? It looks like the "I" in BRITT is pointing to the tooth!

    1897 dot penny. Advice needed.

    I will try to re-photograph, with a fixed camera position, so you can definitely see each dot position with reference to the toothed ring. The only real problem is the reflection that the slab presents, but I will give it a try.

    1897 dot penny. Advice needed.

    They appear somewhat that way in the photo, but they are at the same location.

    1897 dot penny. Advice needed.

    Zo, I am guessing the dot might have been drilled into the die to coverup a defect that had appeared in the die field, due to use of the die. How the hole started to crack is above my paygrade, and I am at a loss to identify why. I thought the two different coins are quite unusual though.

    1897 dot penny. Advice needed.

    Here is the 1946 "Dot" . It is graded F-20 by CGS 2nd photo is the 1946 "apostrophe", which has the Dot with a crack extended from the top to the bottom. It is graded AU55BN ny NGC. Both pics were very hard to take due to the coins being slabbed. Both coins are for sale, if anyone is interested. Regards. Bob

    1897 dot penny. Advice needed.

    Do any of the other dot varieties have an adjacent die crack? The 1909 N dot, 1875 cannonball, 1946 dot dash? I have two 1946 Dot Pennies. One has a perfectly round Dot, and the other has a round Dot, with a slight crack showing at the top and bottom of the Dot.
  8. Beautiful specimen. It looks better than a 61 to me!

    Oz, That is definitely a nice coin, but is difficult to grade because of the surface tarnish. It needs a quick "dip" to clean it up a little bit. The lions heads on the reverse are very good, but where the Crown sets on the shield, there is definite wear. The obverse head also looks like it has wear. Still it is a nice coin...though not a ms-62...so I agree with you on that.
  10. Here is a nice one I sold to the guy in Cardiff, about 10 years ago!
  11. I don't know who won it, but if I was a betting man, I would think it went to Cardiff, to the guy who has the other three (3)!
  12. I have a lady friend who starts every sentence with "Well anyway", and it drives me crazy. I have mentioned it to her, but she continues.........
  13. Beautiful example Oz! Cleaned or not!
  14. The coin has a pale sheen, common to coins that have been cleaned, however without the mild "friction" lines common with harsh manual cleaning, leads me to believe it was dipped in a chemical solution......
