    engraved coins

    Stunner Debbie! hope it was as nice in hand as you expected. I have had so much going on lately, change of job, some family bereavements, that my coin collecting has been put on hold. I do of course still enjoy them, I hope to add to my collection again soon. So glad you got this coin in the end, as I know how much you liked it! And hi to everyone else! I missed you Hope your all doing well, I will catch up with you and your collecting adventures soon.
  2. Ah, another ebay one! I am not confident enough yet, to start spending high amounts on coins from the bay. I worry about being sold some sort of dodgy coin for those prices, and losing my money. Have you been tempted by any Eddie Bronze or Copper yet Colin? or you still just a Silver addict Been tempted to get some copper but the prices go too high There are some nice Bronze coins about of Eddie at good prices Colin. I know you are not keen on farthings, but sometimes we forget the little guys in this thread, I got this today for under a tenner, It is a really nice looking little coin in hand
  3. You Newb!! Never clean a coin Im just playin. I have been considering an attempt at cleaning a silver shilling myself, which has some stains I do not like. It is not of high value and only cost me a few pounds, so thought it might be a good coin to practice on. If you have any tips for cleaning silver coins safely, please let me know Coinery.

  5. You guys never disappoint! Lots of interesting use of coins in history/legend I have never even heard of, great stuff
  6. Hi Alfsmum, I just done a quick google search for you, and it sounds like you have a Churchill Cetenary Trust Medal. The one I found is Silver Proof Coated in 24ct. Gold, this is for sale at a little over £30 in top condition. I am not sure if they made them also in Solid Gold, but if they did yours would be worth more, as the Gold alone would be quite valuable. I may be completely wrong though, as I am still learning about coins too! Here is the link to what I found, is this what you have? http://charlessnowdencoins.com/proddetail.php?prod=13009095
  7. Lovely coin pies! Can I be nosy and ask how much you paid for it, and from where? I know you have a good eye for the bargains when it comes to Eddies, and I would like to add some nice grade shillings to my collection. you can PM me if you wish
  8. Nice looking Florin Gary. Will you take £50 and a penny?
  9. I was day dreaming today, like I often do when my brain aches. I started to think about the importance of some coins roles in historical events, my mind wandered a bit, and I thought how lovely it would be to own the actual coin that decided the kick-off for the 1966 World Cup Final! (does that coin even exist? maybe it has already passed through one of your hands!). Then when I tried to think of other examples, I could not think of any. So I open this thread up to you all, if your bored, have a little think about it... What ONE coin would you love to own, that has taken part in some sort of Historical event?
  10. Not very high grade, but are these any help? http://www.londoncoins.co.uk/?searchterm=!Freeman+76&prm=sr&searchtype=1&page=Pastresults http://www.londoncoins.co.uk/?searchterm=!Freeman+69&prm=sr&searchtype=1&page=Pastresults
  11. Happy Birthday to Mrs P! Hope you both have a lovely time
  12. Another new variety... Go pies!
  13. True! I was more of a numpty, the one I thought I had discovered a new "variety" on, was listed as a sixpence online! Only took me a day or two to work it out
  14. Good old pies... Classic! I made the exact same mistake when first looking around for the Q's.
  15. Now I see what the pictures you posted recently were for! Looks like this will keep you busy for a while. Not much I can offer to help, but if there is anything I can do, let me know... even if it is just an extra pair of eyes to search google for something in particular
