  1. It's a restoration broad (20 shillings) by Thomas Simon
  2. Patterns are not something I usually go for, but got to have at least 1 example, right?
  3. Following on from the popularity of the 'Let's see your copper coins ...' thread, and the recent postings on my question concerning the prevalence of toning in English milled silver, I have started this thread to gawk at pics of toned English milled silver. Anything goes, but attractive natural toning is preferred! Artificially rainbow toned US slabbed tat is specifically discouraged!! Here's a few of mine to get things started My avatar coin, and one of my first (lucky) eBay purchases
  4. If Lloyd Bennett was there, then very likely, yes
  5. Thanks Stu - do you remenber that 'research' Newark piece you sold me a few years back?
  6. By far and away my coin acquisition of the MONTH!
  7. Increasingly liking this one, my best example of a George II young head roses halfcrown type
  8. Getting in to Conder tokens increasingly, this a rare Middlesex Hackney example, D&H 309, just landed
  9. Exactly! I've amassed 29 of the blighters now, all very different ...
  10. Limiting myself to Charles I halfcrowns so as not to get spread too thin Stu!

    Elizabeth Halfpenny, good or wrong?

    My vote is thick
  14. 1797 Warwickshire Birmingham Kempson’s Halfpenny Conder Token Obverse: THE NEW BRASS WORKS 1796 Reverse: P. KEMPSON . MAKER OF BUTTONS MEDALS &c BIRMINGHAM Edge: Plain Part of Peter Kempson’s “Birmingham Building” token series, made to sell to collectors. D&H 203 Just 1 more to get hold of in this 27 design series (Birmingham Workhouse D&H 186/187)
  15. In this instance MS 70 is a cleaning product https://www.amazon.com/MS-70-oz-Coin-Cleaner-Bottle/dp/B000YQBZPE
  16. A recent acquisition, the eye has it (Rob taught me that!)
  17. There is ever increasing evidence imo that due to hype, blind acceptance of TPG grades, record prices being realised, and laziness, greed has become a big factor in our hobby
  18. Another type gap-filling newbie, this from the Spink eAuction last week (halfcrown)
  19. Can anyone spot anything 'wrong' with this florin? I bought it from @Rob over 4 years ago, and it remains my nicest example of a gothic florin. At the time I was prone to sending some of my nicer coins to CGS (as was) for grading, attribution, etc. I'm not after another debate about the rights and wrongs of slabbing, or the goods and bads of CGS. It was rejected as 'altered' (no further explanation was forthcoming), but I'm damned if I can find anything awry with it!
  20. Thanks David! I guess that could be it, but I still have my doubts!
  21. Mine has O of GEORGIUS open at the top
