  1. Just at the moment I am very worried as to russia's next move .

    In the syrian war they were warned time and time again that there would be serious concequences if they used chemical weapons .

    They soon got down to using them part way through the conflict and despite all the hot air nothing was the responce.

    So if they learn from history, they learn take no notice of the USA as they will be no responce.

  2. If I remember rightly May was quite cold with many frosts that killed / stunted many of my plants , hope we are not due this again , this may it's surposed to be a  frost free month and one where the growing season starts , in contrast the year befores may was a scorcher and I lost many plants due to the garden centres being locked down ....

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the pound originally a pound weight of silver?

    They were printing those off as fast as they could to fund an abysmal cause & rapidly turned almost worthless to be made good on conclusion of the war (well thank God it didn't go their way). To me, I always felt like holding any confederate anything was akin to holding items from Nazi Germany, or possibly worse.

    Anyway, I suppose these things serve an educational purpose....

    Remind you of what happened to the uk currency ,The pound once a gold coin now basemetal tat

    I just saw this posted and was appalled (surprise, surprise!) at the quality or lack thereof and the grades obtained. For specifics, check the 1935 Specimen Rocking Horse Crown in SP66 (?!?!) - marks on the cheek are absolutely unacceptable IMO for that grade.

    And then there is the poor 1965 Churchill crown somehow graded MS65 but given what appears to be a "GVF" or thereabouts in the description. I simply can not believe that grade. As some may know, I am actually a fan of this crown in higher grades - which this certainly is NOT - but this one won't do.

    I have gradually over the years been filling out the Old Head Regnal years but even with those I'm lacking feel I must pass on this lot for sale.

    What say our readers?

    Churchill crown in GVF ? Sounds like it might have circulated
