  1. Have you the coin with those tickets, not a common 6d that?
  2. No these are the tickets that belonged to an earlier sale, before J.J. purchased it to sell, I got confused with me pictures 😬 The neater hand is agreed to be Comber (there’s a couple of other Comber tickets posted in recent days for comparison), so it’s now the left I’m curious about? Sorry for the confusion.
  3. Thanks for that Interesting…why would he write two for the same coin?
  4. This is a misunderstanding
  5. Thanks, Jerry, really appreciate your input here! I thought the right hand ticket looked Comber, any thoughts on the left, from what little is shown? Edit: sorry I meant TopCarp2 and he’s definitely signing himself off as Stephen???
  6. Can confirm the ticket to the right is Stephen’s of Top Carp 👍 Anyone for the left one?
  7. Can I ask a favour…does anyone recognise the tickets accompanying this coin? some of the details in the right hand ticket looks Comber, but what of the left?
  8. I have to say, though, if my coin, in the light of your upcoming evidence, had turned out to be fake (I double-checked mine after your initial post), I would’ve sold up and changed hobbies. One or two significant differences between the two examples, thank goodness
  9. Images would be very welcome if you can find them? This one weighs right, looks right, and also rings right
  10. That’d be about right…’Coin Acquisition of the Week’ lays dormant for nearly a week…post an acquisition…and within two hours it’s buried by the Penny boys! 😂😂😂
  11. Aww, that’s great…I’d say that’s a match. Many thanks for that! Edit: Just thinking ‘1558 in obverse legend’ ? What does it belong to?
  12. I was hoping this ticket would be Comber’s, but it looks as though he prints in capitals, unless he ever went through a phase of lowercase italics?
  13. £100 - absolute bargain for this Comber provenance, rarer marked 6d

    Royal Mail track and trace website down

    Still down! I downloaded the app., but will be deleting it, just as soon as the site’s back up.
  15. Only just got this 🤣🤣
  16. Some heathen humour 😁
  17. You’d think they’d know better than this? You could be eating your lunch, whilst talking on your phone at a train station, and STILL spot this one in a shop window across the other side of the rail track with one eye closed!

    CNG counterfeit E1 Cypher Halfpenny

    They really aren’t making it clear…is that really worth $90 already? It’s got Spink and North cataloguing…what’s the Withers ref all about?
  19. These two coins are meant to be exactly the same coin, photographed at different times. Of course photography can vary, but this one looks comparatively mushy…what do you think?

    James I Double Crown - thoughts?

    Amazing the difference two photos can make! The first looks like it’s just popped off the die, the second, like it’s been on the bottom of the ocean a few hundred years!

    James I Double Crown - thoughts?

    I was simply looking at various dies for the double crown and came across these two that were difficult to reconcile. I initially assumed them to be different coins of the same die…I think it a tricky call, photography versus analysis, for me at least. Interestingly the chronology is all wrong at London Coins, which counts against me to be fair!

    James I Double Crown - thoughts?

    The stop before IACOBVS? Try expanding the SAS at the bottom of the coin?
