    Nice pick-up!
  2. Has anyone looked much at the London and Perth half sovereigns of 1904? Marsh says that both exist with and without the BP, but as far as I can see all the Perth coins have no BP, and Marsh is wrong when he says the London no BP is the more common coin.

    I read recently the request came in 1951 as well.

    You might be on to something, though I think obverse 11 and 12 are probably the same more of less - I looked for any appreciable difference that wasn't a comparative and all I could notice was that some coins had the R of BRITT pointing below the serif of the I and some had it in line. Both types could be seen on coins that were supposed to be both 11 and 12.
  5. The latest edition of the The Gold Sovereign is out - looks like there is free postage for a short amount of time as well.

    1708 Queen Anne shilling

    Yeah, doesn't look right at all.

    I remember reading that though maybe it was brother that rejected the offer? I've noted to myself that the first stroke of the N in ONE helps with the 1909 penny.
  8. Any opinions on http://numismatics.org/collection/1980.109.1037 and http://numismatics.org/collection/1947.129.1? The first one looks like it has the wrong sort of wear and I think is fake. The second one looks okay but according to the notes is a hollowed out container, though it looks like a real coin was used.
  9. Sorry for the late response - thank you, very helpful.
  10. I was flicking through my Davies and it looks like the threepence dies used for George V Maundy sets is incomplete (it starts with 3C for 1920). Anyone know what was used for 1911 to 1919? I know I can look (it looks like 1911 is 1A: https://maundy.co.uk/catalogue/product-details.aspx?id=nPLwqfwFJrE%3D; 1919 looks like 1B: https://www.londoncoins.co.uk/?page=Pastresults&auc=168&searchlot=2237&searchtype=2) but just in case anyone has already looked and figured it out.
  11. Ah right you are - I got my die attributes in Davies mixed up.
  12. Agreed - cast from dies with a 3 engraved themselves by the looks of it.
  13. I think it sold through DNW but does anyone have a link? Google doesn't give me anything obvious.
  14. Yes there we go: https://www.londoncoins.co.uk/?page=Pastresults&auc=124&searchtype=3 Thanks - got a bit confused because the first lot of stuff was the Roland Harris collection.
  15. Four different reverses for 1887? What are they?

    5p Varieties 1969 – 1990

    Nice work.
  17. Is it still published? And is it anywhere on the Spink website? Google gives me a couple of hints, both of which are dead links.
  18. Anyway, I put together what I could find at my site: https://www.coincuriosity.com/snc.html I'll build this up as I find digitised issues and I have time.
  19. Related to http://www.predecimal.com/forum/topic/13797-1951-crown-type-i-and-type-ii-reverse/
  20. Yes the Spink website is broken. I recall having some luck with Internet Explorer some years ago but it is no longer maintained I don't think. I found https://fliphtml5.com/sbxk/oeok/basic and https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/view/31858249/download-pdf-spink though I can't find any working .pdf downloaders for those sites at the moment.
  21. Ah that would explain it. The archive link on their website leads nowhere to I see. Was it a .pdf in more recent times?
  22. Hard to say from the pictures, but comparing to https://collections.museumsvictoria.com.au/items/57841, there might be a bit more detail in the King's hair and area under his eye, and on the reverse the left arm of the centre cross almost touches the bottom arch on the pattern but is well clear on the standard. Both reverses have 180 denticles and both obverses have 183 denticles by my count. Are there any better images?
  23. Anyone got links for the 1889 2+C shilling and 1898 2+B sixpence as well?
  24. Do you know if the 7 to head is known on circulating coins? I'm inclined to call it a pattern because it looks like an unrecorded obverse too - there are two lines on the bottom of the crown like obverse 1 but three pearls on the central arch like obverse 2.
