    More Pennies

    A year or two b4 the survey it was in the national press about the H and KN penny , judgeing on the presses power these days to practically cause circulating coinage to dissapear in an instant , I would expect that to be the reason

    London Coin Fair Nov 2019

    Best tip arrive early , they can get very crowded
  3. If only that area at the top and bottom was well struck up - it would treble the worth of the coin
  4. Lovely token farthing from the edge of the northwest . Wanted one of these for ages just for the lovely design and now I have one
  5. Coin is gef + scan does not do justice i will try to put obverse on funny enough I have had a scarcer a/unc bright finish for years
  6. !897 dark finish farthing (please dont laugh everyone ) . A much harder date to find in top top grade and has been missing from my collection for years . Picked up in a pound box for a £1 at this weekends birmingham coin fair , (at least when it arrived it did so at a great price , I grade A/Unc
  7. Nice recent pickup A/unc after near 180 years
  8. Like the reverse obverse not very flattering though , but probably a reasonable likeness

    more FAKES

    I must admit a quick luck at the anne farthings on ebay , with about 96% being fake but not described as such . The funny thing is if you are honest and list your contemp . copy as such you are punished by it fetching £70 instead of the £250 you would have got listing it as genuine. With all the fakes on there I would never consider buying off ebay , it has to be at a coin fair - I do hope to buy a couple one day. As the bay is now the home of chancers and charlatans it may never get its reputation back

  11. Widely known I am just a nut LOL
  12. A recent buy not from birmingham just had to have it , A/Unc after 180 years and a slightly scarcer date
  13. Anyone remember the coin weekly ? It was breifly around in a comic like format - I have never seen any copies for years
