Everything posted by Paulus

  1. I particularly like the reverse on that one Mick
  2. Latest addition to my Charles I Halfcrown collection, this a Tower Mint type 2c, and my first Harp mint mark
  3. Very nice that one, I don't think you have paid too much in today's market
  4. Paulus

    Degree of double strike

    Here's my 'double-struck' shilling as an extreme example
  5. Paulus

    Newly arrived, 1653 halfcrown

    My latest Tower Mint halfcrown, this one lower grade but mm Sun over Eye / Sun and Reverse reads CHRISO AVSPICHE REGNO
  6. Another 1915 halfcrown, I can't resist grabbing decent examples of 1911-19 halfcrowns at a good price
  7. Paulus

    Newly arrived, 1653 halfcrown

    A recent detector find, in the process of finding out more (if there is any more!) Reputable dealer though
  8. Absolutely splendid 1893 and 1920 examples, very well done!
  9. Previously posted in the hammered section, but an acquisition from this week
  10. I often increase the insurance on Special Delivery, I thought the maximum cover with the RM was £2,500? Good value imo, never had to claim so far ...
  11. The latest addition to my Charles I halfcrown collection, this a type 2b. Ex Lingford, Porter, Bull (the plate coin for 127/17)
  12. I'd agree with the grade opinion on the 1887, maybe slightly less on the 1902, here's mine
  13. Paulus

    Die Numbers

    I think they are not to be relied upon, I have this die no. 49 1878 shilling which I'm (fairly) sure is fourth head Bull 3051 even though the maximum die number is stated as 47
  14. Just landed. Forging ahead with my Charles I halfcrown collection, this (my first) Briot First Milled Issue example
  15. Nice Briot portrait, my one and only Charles I Scottish example
  16. Latest addition to my Charles I halfcrown collection, this time a York Mint type 5
  17. Yes, it's a type (based on Spink and Bull / ESC classification) that I didn't have - 5 types of young head sixpence as far as I'm concerned, I'm just missing the 1 type now
  18. Latest addition to my sixpence type collection, only mid grade but quite attractive and scarce
  19. This no stops on obv 6d I'm considering comes with 2 tickets, anyone recognise the collector / dealer from them?
  20. Sterling work gentlemen! Looked them up online somehow, or in something you have locally?
  21. Thanks Rob - looks like Bull downgraded it to R2 in the latest edition, for what it's worth!
