  1. an important note for the Edward VII coinage with regards to TPG that i have noticed, looking at the pop reports there is something with this coinage that they rate very poorly, the average grade(apart from 1902) is 64, this is quite alot lower than the norm of 65/max 66. Not sure what the TPG do not like about this date series for HC but 63 is a very high grade for this, i would personally not treat is like a normal 63 price wise.
  2. interested to see whether the 1808 will bring more than it made the last time it was sold

    1981 10p

    i bought £60 worth of these old style 10ps a while ago and just checked through them, dont have any 1981 so they do seem illusive unless someone filtered it before me

    £742 seems cheap for a PF64 cameo, so they probably were put off by the photo, believe i seen a few end at about £950 or so

    Is the Royal Mint that desperate for money?

    been in the ether from 1974-2018 Decent marketing really, kinda jealous i don't have all these tools at my disposal to jack up prices
  8. possibly cleaning at some point too as seen by some excessive redness around the high point, fedinately get it graded before putting it for sale, i would recommend a USA auction house as this would achieve a better price
  9. looks to be, the 4 star variety is the rare type, maybe the seller confused this for the 2 star variety when looking at prices. Note yours also has the die characteristics of the one used for the main PCGS picture, i would rate yours around the F12/15 mark

    Is the Royal Mint that desperate for money?

    bentley one (EF) sold for $288k, Id say this one is on par grade wise(if not the same coin, unsure from pictures) with the one sold in the hemisphere collection may 2014 for £41k. Really confusing the way they are trying to sell this, making it out like you will "win" or get something for a great price if you are the lucky chosen one. maybe a skilled marketing gimmick that will entice someones complete pension pot into this coin with a £60k profit to the RM. Interesting aspects none the less .
  12. I cant help with catalogs but i like it I have recently started collecting NZ coins, i feel they are unappreciated at the moment. I will definitely have a look further into this site

    Hey guys

    yea there are alot of fakes for this coin, have a look for soapy texture, cast lines around edges, bubbles in fields etc etc. but yea a better picture would do wonders
