  1. 20:22 Trump has 'no symptoms' of coronavirus The US president says he is showing no symptoms of the coronavirus after he met a political aide to Brazilian president Bolsanaro at the weekend, who later tested positive. “We have no symptoms whatsoever,” he told reporters during his press conference in the White House. There had been speculation that President Bolsonaro had himself tested positive, but on Friday said he did not have the virus. Donald Trump sat next to Mr Bolsonaro at a dinner at his residence in Florida last week.

    Proof there is no god

    Maybe hes not as interested in vice as the president - thats a weird one ......
  3. The flans for charles II farthings were surplied from sweden so it probably was not the royal mints fault they were a bit over - still its careless and must have cost the swedish compay that provided them loads - it was rhe last time they were used 1679 I think. yummy coin by the way
  4. Large flan farthings of george III are quite common - I dont think quality control was very good back then....
  5. One for the genesis fans You really dont want this in your back garden (It prefers riverbanks anyway)
  6. Sounds like an encounter with Donald trump

    On the plus side trump announces today hes taking a unproven drug thats probably of little use and might kill him . It would at least leave a slot for pense

    Andy Burnham to automatically be mayor for an extra year as coronavirus delays elections Having initially resisted calls from the Electoral Commission and councillors, the government today agreed to put off May 7’s poll Bet someone over the pond feels jealous
  9. Spent the last week or so painting the new garden shed (well sixmonths old)- quite bright colours - it looks a bit like a beach hut now . will try to put a pic on soon blue and cream in case your interested
  10. You would think they would be pleased with people showing an interest in the auction
  11. Top 10 attractions Brits want to visit when lockdown is over: 1. National Trust park / property 2. Natural History Museum 3. Blackpool Pleasure Beach 4. London Zoo 5. Alton Towers 6. Eden Project 7. Brighton Pier 8. Science Museum 9. Tower of London 10. National Gallery Personally I am surprised that chester zoo ain't there , its got to be a favorite with both mancs and liverpudlians , you could even see a beaver (:))
  12. probably because most "Interesting" coins were gold and silver so at least had an intrinsic worth
  13. Incidently George V had a couple of hobbys that most kings that went before would have laughed at they were of course stamp and coin collecting. Most that went before him were interested in fornication and drink/ drugs.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Looks tooled to me would not pay £100 for it . How a slabbing company could ever put their name to that - words fail me

    Great investment

    Judgeing on the low mintages of both the flopsy bunny and peter rabbit coins of 2018 - I will be keeping any I find as a short term investment I have already found a couple in my change and bought a couple at an antques and collectors fair for 75p each , they should be orer a tenner each in a year or so.

    Recently I was walking around a old churchyard in shropshire (pre lockdown ) and I heard this screaming noise I looked around and found then smallest little wild rabbit which had been backed into a corner next to a gravestone , I realised what had happened this tiny rabbit had come out of its burrow and had a look at the wide world and been lucky enough to meet a stoat/ weasel on its first trip out , poor thing. It was a really nice thing to do, pick it up , I never did see the stoat/ weasel but hey its nice to help such a furry cute animal
  17. Dont forget "paddy" he's not that far away
  18. What do u really expect from asda - shop at waitrose or the cheaper alternative morrisons
  19. In a hotel bedroom I hope , we have no wish to see that happening at the midland coin fair
  20. I find zero at the moment have to be content with the odd pick up at birmingham or whatever. There were more bargains years ago
  21. I have noted over the last couple of years many sellers just relist , relist ,their coins that dont sell, its just boreing seeing a 1885 farthing in VF grade for a minmum bid of £20.00 when £2 would be fair , thus the number of items for sale on ebay goes up,up,up but the interest of collectors decreases There should be a limit on the number of times an item is listed. Dunno how that would be policed though. There is an Anne farthing listed as genuine in the states , I informed the seller it was a fake as you can see the casting port . It's still for sale five years after I told the owner its a fake, he refuses to lower the price , would have to be nearer £50 than the £500 or so he wants for it FFS why do I bother
  22. yes people at home bored will do wonder for the sales of certain things , I wonder if amazon and ebay jointly released the virus into the uk. In my opinion coins have been underpiced for years a rare coin from the uk fetches 1% of what a rare coin in the states fetches regardless of the fact theym only outnumber us by 6 to 1. And by a rare coin I dont mean a 2018 peter rabbit.
  23. The last thing you worry about when theres no electricity or food in the fridge is your coin collection.
