  1. i dont think fibers but underlying details from the over struck Spanish 8R?

    Possible Fake Coin

    convert to a smaller size, pics will help judge whether the reduction in weight is justified
  3. love this series, ?problem? with it is in my opinion the proofs did not get much better of a strike than good, much cheaper, BU examples. I had a proof 1936 6d PF 65 and a 1935 CGS 88, i could not for the life of me spot differences. Personally wouldn't be tempted by a PF61, would probably end up going for £100-£200
  4. in some cases provenance is worth an extra $574.50 😶 Most expensive non error Churchill crown?

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    interesting fake
  6. heres my old MS65 for comparison
  7. I've found some amazing gems on ebay, even some described correctly and still ending at a bargain. This i purchased for £50 last year
  8. just reading through ESC and a footnote mentions a 1901/1902 mule halfcrown, Was just wondering if anyone has seen this coin in auction or has any pictures of it? Have scoured the internet for it but apart from being in this footnote i cannot find another reference of it.
  9. heritage is 5% for signature items or 10% for other
  10. For sale is the set below, just looking to get spot price for this(£~1170x1.75oz)+£10 postage(uk). Message if interested, will add to ebay later tomorrow if no interest.
  11. 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.
  12. 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

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    £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
