  1. Chingford thanks for the info on the book (£15 from Galata) should be worth checking out. I imagine this may be the book he was thinking off if its the only Crown publication you can think of although I wasn't just interested in proofs. 1887 Jubilee thanks for the link got me measuring the T's to the R's, although I scaled it down to a average of 5 measurements. As for what varieties I think exist I couldn't really say as I'm just looking for more information at the moment. Is it just the 1887 your interested in or all Jubilee heads?
  2. No worries azda after re-reading my post I see how it could be misunderstood.
  3. Azda its a case of my friend knowing that such a book exists but he can't remember the title hence me asking here. Peckris thanks for the pointer.
  4. Hello everyone its been a while since I've posted but was hoping I could get some pointers. In a nutshell I'm looking for a book that goes in to detail about the die pairings of Vicky jub head crowns. It may be worth mentioning I already have Davies and the ESC, a friend has mentioned there is a book that covers this subject but can't remember which book it is. Any ideas anyone?

    Hi everyone been a while I know but thought I'd add some info. I had a email this morning saying they were expecting the books today/tomorrow so will probably start sending them out on Monday. So fingers crossed they will start cropping up here and there the early part of next week.
  6. Interesting post. The 1601 pattern groat is stunning.
  7. Interesting but I have to agree with ski why show the bog lol.
  8. Not a problem Declan. do you know or indeed does anyone know if this error has been encountered before? I can't find anything about it except for there is a 1845 with the same error.
  9. Got this one today and it appears to be a unrecorded variety. I've seen the 1845 has this error which is noted in 'Collectors Coins GB' but this is the same error but on a 1844 crown. Here's some photo's:
  10. Just been chatting with a friend about grading/slabbing etc. and apparently the video game world is starting the same thing! Check this link! vggrader.com don't people like to play games any more!
  11. It does appear though that in the US, dipping is not considered such a sin. I seem to remember reading James Halperin (of Heritage Auctions) writing quite openly about 'improving' coins by dipping them. There are pros and cons to the argument, but would you seriously consider dipping this? Nope, that's a nice one I've never tried dipping coins so wouldn't start with that one or any one for that matter. Very similar wear to my coin, I've seen it on your site, looks like I will have to reduce mine heavily or add it to my crown collection and leave the price as is and if it sells then so be it.
  12. Well that confirms what I'd just said about the free submission thanks. If it does come back bodybagged it will also confirm what Rob said about it being dipped, the colour of it does look flat though, almost stoney like which is an indicator, it won't help with you looking for a professional grade , but as i've said all along, GVF and based on other comments also. I did notice it on your website a tad higher grade though. Thanks for your thoughts, I can't deny it lacks the toning you'd expect from a coin of its age. I've updated the grade on my site to GVF, shall see if I can translate the description I got with to see if that contains a grade or not be interesting to see.
  13. Well that confirms what I'd just said about the free submission thanks.
