    Hertfordshire Coin Dealers?

    There's a shop in Hemel, mainly stamps but carries coins as well. Libritz, London Road, Apsley, not really worth going out of your way for.
  2. There was a 1901 Death of Victoria, Acession of Edward medal that used that reverse, but I'd be very interested in seeing a coronation medal with that format.

    TimeLine Inc.

    Back in the 60s, I was a "Saturday Boy" at Marshall Amplication in W7. Duties mainly involved humping and lumping and sometimes accompanying the hire gear to a gig if Jim didn't like the look of the roadies. Since then, I've hardly ever had the back off an amp but the local amp repair service heard a bit about my ancient history and I get invited for a look-see every time he gets an old Marshall in for service. Prices on some of that gear is getting a bit worrisome too.
  4. BTW, if there is no signature on the truncation, then this is a knock off copy of the Spink issue.
  5. My BHM isn't to hand, but from memory I'd say that this isn't included.

    Read the text of any of the listings. It specifically states that shipping to NZ is not £12.00 That's because ebay don't have a setting for NZ. They just regard you as "Rest of the World" You get charged the same rate as Oz.

    more FAKES

    I've spent this evening listing 20 or so toy coins. Mostly Lauer which generally say "Imitation of" whatever. The listings all start TOY MONEY and they're listed under tokens. I had ebay autobots all over my a**e for the entire evening telling me that I couldn't list because blah blah blah. Sometimes I'd used identical wording just minutes before witout demur. As a result my listings will be finishing after midnight which is a practice that I usually find unprofitable. So my take from this is that genuine collectable articles can come under severe scrutiny but just list an outright fake and it's Absolutely fine Sir, enjoy your selling experience.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    And they're offering the 1951 crown as silver too.

    First hammered coins

    I thought it might be one of these, I see them from time to time. Here's my usual sales spiel. Death of Oliver Cromwell 1658, a Dutch copy of the Thomas Simon medal worn by mourners at Cromwell's funeral. Obverse: Bust left, laureate and armoured Around which the legend: OLIVAR. D.G. R.P. ANG.SCO. HIBERNIAE. PROTECTOR Reverse: A shepherd attending his flock near an olive tree Around which: NON. DEFITIENT. OLIVA. SEP.3 1658, VG Contemporary cast copy of the large Dutch Medal References: Loon II, 420 Eimer 200 They usually come out around 49. mm, 28.5 gr

    I missed this thread the first time round but I'd be really interested in seeing your Cromwell medal.
  13. It should be pointed out that Monnaie de Paris have retained the dies for probably every coin and medal they have ever issued. restrikes are common and if you have deep enough pockets, old medals can be struck to order.
  14. There is a book by Davis & Waters, published in 1922 Tickets and Passes of Great Britain and Ireland (Struck Or Engraved on Metal, Ivory, Etc. for Use at Theatres, Public Gardens, Shows, Exhibitions, Clubs, Societies, Schools and Colleges; Also Truck Tickets, Colliery Checks, Railway Passes, Gambling, Lottery and Racing Tickets, Etc) However should you be able to find a copy, it will cost you both arms, a leg and your first born. Last one I saw was around £475. Try your County Library.
