  1. Upgrade, pretty little thing ...
  2. Yes, certainly better than the obverse ...
  3. The 1911 proofs are often very nicely toned, due, it is thought by many, to the materials in the box the set came in. Discussed and shown before, but here's mine - I think it's truly beautiful
  4. Thanks Rob - I think this is the SCMB Listing (XM219):
  5. My first hammered Charles II example, comes with an interesting ticket, expressing £5 5s as £5 1/4 ...
  6. Does anyone (else) have one of these? I'm have been finding it extremely difficult to locate these in decent condition (better than GF really) but I'm hopefully about to upgrade this one soon. Seems scarcer than merely 'Scarce' (ESC) to me!
  7. I was lucky enough to get them at £20 each, they sold out at this price in no time
  8. I don't know to be honest, there are a lot as you say, even if you only count the plate coins - the 'overspill' section may be examples he traced rather than acquired? I do have his tickets for those that came from his collection
  9. Inspired by Maurice Bull! I have all 5 volumes of 'The Halfcrowns of Charles I' and most of mine are ex Maurice's collection ...
  10. My latest Charles I halfcrown, courtesy of Messrs. Bull & Worby
  11. I'm finalising due diligence on this piece, here's the provenance the seller has provided but would like to know more about such a striking coin ... hoping someone can help? @Rob? The provenance so far is superb of course, I would like to go back further! Provenance: Spink Numismatic Circular 1985 (£850) Spink Numismatic Circular 1986 (£850) Spink Auction 117, 1996 £605 hammer ex Coins of Britain 2016 Ex Maurice Bull Collection
  12. Not at all, I much appreciate the spade work! I don't have the SNCs in question, are you able to display the pics from them at all?
  13. Just landed - ticks plenty of boxes for me, including my first triangle mm example, my first 3a2 with rough groundline (S 2776), full weight (15.05g), and the Bull plate coin (383b/32)

    Just landed - ticks plenty of boxes for me, including my first triangle mm example, my first 3a2 with rough groundline (S 2776), full weight (15.05g), and the Bull plate coin (383b/32)
  15. Just wondered if I could prick the interest of fellow Charles I halfcrown collectors, or ask for opinions I have been concentrating on Tower Mint types this last year or so, here's a montage of my best so far. Some are Brooker and/or Bull plate coins.
  16. Latest acquisition - recut 3, or 3 over something? 5, as per Spink? The jury's out ...
  17. Blimey, well done, which one have you still to acquire? I have a few still to get, including the Workhouse one. I've just upgraded my St Martin's Church example:
  18. Another newbie, type 3a3, ex Bull
