  1. The date 1660 points more to a medal if it were 1662 or later I would agree with it being a pattern - a fine work anyway , really lovely.

    Starting an arms factory and selling to Russia and the middle east would probably be very lucrative

    Blank for a Brass Threepence?

    As these were the first pressings they were experimental so different alloys may have been used

    The "plastic " set of 1953 was an increadably sucessfull selling over a million if I remember rightly they were issued in post offices at a small premium over face value as a coronation keep sake. Many were broken open in the seventies or even sixties the penny waa always touted as "rare" even though its not most of the higher value coins went back intoi circulation but the bronze remains in large quantities unused. Even today the cheapest way of getting a set is in these plastic wallets

    I would have thought it would be made with sides - do you have any proof its a royal mint product ? There are many enginering places in the uk or abroad that could make what you have .

    Halfpenny ID check

    The main trouble with halfpennies is they were not hoarded as much as pennies so there are relatively few around the victoria halfpennies also suffered from heavy usage and few have even clear dates these days . A good halfpenny collection is even harder to put together than pennies because at least there are still quite a few pennies around , there again there are more varieties in the penny series mostly of 1860 , 1861 and 1862

    Russians

    I really feel sorry for the older and poorer people in ukraine they live from hand to mouth anyway the rich and mobile at least had the option of running away - some of the older ones even remember the nazis in the country in the mid 1940s such a shame that mans infumatitiy to man comes back 70 years later

    Royal Mint 2022 Unc set

  19. Dont bet on that a memorial coin prob a £5 to maximise royal mint profits is probably in the planning
  20. Anyone else out there not to sure about the goverments help for bill payers this winter? If it happens (and I am sure it will) what will it happen in year 2 3 4 and 5 will this not add tens of billions to the national debt, all to be given to putin for his nasty little war. The point is any goverment that stops doing this "subsidy" or paying peoples bills for them will be immediately voted out of office . The goverment even compounds this by giving the Ukraine weapons and money to carry on with the war I cannot see anything else but tax rises in the future unless truss has found that magic money tree and I don't belive she has
  21. The chairman of Russia's Lukoil oil giant, Ravil Maganov, has died after falling from a hospital window in Moscow, reports say. The company confirmed his death but said only that Maganov, 67, had "passed away following a severe illness". Russian media said he was being treated at Moscow's Central Clinical Hospital and died of his injuries. Maganov is the latest of a number of high-profile business executives to die in mysterious circumstances. Investigating authorities said they were working at the scene to establish how he died. Tass news agency quoted sources saying he had fallen out of a sixth-floor window, adding later that he had taken his own life. Only in russia is a fall from an upstairs window a "severe illness" I surpose the guys that pushed him were described as "medicine" .
