  1. Yes - exactly the same diameter as the standard issue. This is the only thing which really surprises me about this coin - there seem to be no problems at all with the strike - it is sharp everywhere, albeit clearly a little worn from circulation. I can't think of any other 12-sided coins the Royal Mint would have been striking in 1955...so I guess it was just lucky ?
  2. That's very interesting. Do you have before/after photos of the copper halfpenny ?
  3. That's very interesting...I will watch out for DN 23... Is Clayton's information just wrong on this point, or is there something I'm missing ? He clearly doesn't list any die numbers higher than 18 for obverse 4 as far as I can see.
  4. I recently acquired this Charles I sixpence. It was sold as a coin of the Dovey Furnace mint (i.e. Spink 2910 !!), but as it lacks the Aberystwyth plumes, and given the price I got it at, I assume it is a Tower mint coin. The obverse bust looks similar to Sharp E5/2 for the shillings...the "neat Aberystwyth bust"; the crown mintmark is different to that which I've seen before for the Tower mint coinage - anyone got any ideas ? Thanks for looking !
  5. Thank you for such a detailed response...I obviously have much to learn about this series...

  7. Obverse attached.
  8. I've added photographs of all items to my flickr photostream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/86730418@N05/. I'd rather not give fixed prices, but 60-80% of the catalogue price is roughly what I'm looking for.
