  1. It's not Special Delivery then. Special Delivery ONLY operates within the UK.
  2. If you have received Special Delivery packets outside the UK, I'm not surprised that they wouldn't pay out.
  3. What has DPD terms & conditions got to do with Royal Mail Special Delivery?
  4. Special Delivery only operates within the UK.
  5. The year won't be known (it would have been on the reverse). If it has the current Queen's head on it, it will be between 1953 and 1967.
  6. International couriers (eg Fedex) may well have different rules, but in the UK money, jewellery etc can be sent using Special Delivery and can cover items up to £2,500 in value.
  7. Brexit and money talk

    We don't want to be in the single market, we just want access to it.
  8. That doesn't appear to be true. Here's a quote direct from the Royal Mail website. If you’re sending valuables, money or jewellery in the post, you should use Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed®. This will enable you to claim compensation in the event of loss or damage. Valuables sent using any other service are not eligible for compensation. Here's the link.
  9. And here's another to add. The 1898 sixpence with small date (1 in date points to tooth).
  10. It is fairly rare, I've only seen 2 or 3. I have a picture of the overstrike.
  11. What value would you expect for this variety in EF and UNC grade? The only reference that mentions it is Spink and that says "Extremely rare". I've only seen one sold at auction and that fetched £240 in nVF at LCA in Jun 2013. My best guess would place the value somewhere equivalent to an 1862 or 1863 sixpence.
  12. Brexit and money talk

    Congratulations on the milestone of your 1000th post Jaggy. In times gone by you would have become a 'Forum God', but now you'll just have to settle for being an 'Accomplished Collector'.
  13. Brexit and money talk

    Apparently Unilever want a 10% increase across the board due to the change in exchange rate. Only Tesco have objected so far. Interestingly, Marmite is wholly sourced and made in the UK - so it sounds like a good excuse for some profiteering by Unilever.
  14. Ebay's Worst Offerings

    That is probably just a mismatch of white balance in the camera which causes a colour cast for a particular light source.
  15. Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I thought that too, initially. But it's clear that the images on the eBay item and the TPG images are taken with different lighting.
