  1. Do you have an image of that reverse handy, Dave, your reverse E (the die match without the lion)? What’s on the obverse of it?
  2. So, did we find a pm rose obverse die to match yours? I lost the thread a bit.
  3. Did we look at this on another thread at some point?
  4. We have, I thought I recognised the coin. I have a day of leisure tomorrow, so will did out my images, engage my brain, and see what I can match up for discussion. Ah, the life of a numismatist...son to collect at 20:30 from scouts, wife to feed when she gets in from a late shift around 21:00 (nursing, Peter), and then the fire to sort out after that!
  5. You’ve finally bit the bullet, then?

    Long Shot .. Shuttlewood 329 Shilling.

    “Rob's Sun coin shows the same sort of 'pared down' artistry.” Have to agree with that, TG, not dissimilar; the jawline and moustache!
  7. Honestly, don’t feel anxious about it on my count, I’m totally out of touch! My post was more about saying how out of touch I am with the milled coins.
  8. My eyes must be so out with these, I wouldn’t be able to buy that with any confidence at all, it seems ‘awkward’ to me? I’m sure it’s 100% fine, and a generous gift, I’m only sharing how long it’s been since I studied the finer points of milled coinage.

    Long Shot .. Shuttlewood 329 Shilling.

    It would definitely be described as a square flan, though, tooling or not! 👍

    Long Shot .. Shuttlewood 329 Shilling.

    Incuse beard on cheek the big stand out for me? It’s clearly a coarse bust, so I make this judgment only on face value, and based only upon seeing this one coin in isolation. If that beard is standard on other busts of that type, then it’s just a coarse bust punch and nothing more...however...

    Long Shot .. Shuttlewood 329 Shilling.

    I’ve just taken a look...in the absence of other dies to compare, my first instinct would be the same.

    17th Century Coins

    Totally get where you are coming from as a writer wishing to surround himself with interesting objet d’art to keep it ‘real.’ There is clearly no better item to inspire and pinpoint a definite place in time than a coin! Rob (above) is a coin dealer and likely has, or could probably source, all the ‘genuine’ items you require! Good luck with the book!

    Not my territory...also, if you don’t know it, I don’t know it, but I hope you get an answer soon!

    Edward penny ID's

    Just to kick things off, 1 and 2 are Edward III florin pennies, coin 3 is Edward I Class 9 with star on chest (all 3 are London), and coin 4 is Edward III minted in York.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Thanks, Rob, it would be an interesting coin to view

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Don’t suppose you’ve got an image handy of the original have you?

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Definitely one of the better copies out there. Quite nice to have the original coin. I stupidly missed out on an opportunity to own the original Elizabeth groat that we often see with the distinctive flawed crown.
  18. Lovely balance on this one, Stu, can see exactly why you bought it! 👍
  19. I sold my Peck, Rob, but very interesting bit of detective work. Love the colour of @Michael-Roo‘s token 👍

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    And for just under £500 you can buy a ‘3/16’ quarter noble and also a James Bond bank note, ending 007, for £200.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    This made me smile...a rather expensive (£150) ‘error’ penny. The error? Double struck! 232915135352

    Edward I Class 1c/a mule and Class 15b

    Both have now been sold!
  23. The class 1c/a mule hammered at over £250 at DNW with buyer’s premium, I’ll accept £150 plus postage. The in-hand image reflects the true colour/tone of the coin. https://www.dnw.co.uk/auction-archive/lot-archive/lot.php?department=Coins&lot_id=247935 The class 15b has an absolutely superb quality flan, also with a deep tone. Sold by R Ingram for £90, I’ll accept £55 plus postage. Apologies, I will have to upload the images tomorrow when I can downsize them on the laptop
