    so sad

    good on you Tom, RIP, thanks for everything. Tomorrow will be a good day. thanks again, Garrett.,
  2. Nice sixpences. I picked up the 1700 shilling in the recent Noble auction. Need a sixpence like yours now ! cheers (image from Noble)
  3. Stewarts probably looked more like this around the time of the token. still the same corner though I believe (Denham and East).
  4. Yes they do (*edit* at least they've been in the current position for a long-long time. Early buildings were sometime relocated, even if just slightly. There are some Rocky historical groups on FaceBook that would be worth joinging if you're keen). In the below video the Criterion (the 'Cri) is the white building in the middle of the frame at 1:33. Stewarts is the building behind the post office (with the clock tower) at 2:15 and you can see the name on the building at various times. cheers

    Greetings from a new member in the USA

    Welcome VillaRose ! I do enjoy florins and halfcrowns too. I was born in 1969, Australia had already given up the pennies and the pounds in 1966. However there will still a few around and still acceptable in corner stores and not long 'till I was hooked. Hope you enjoy hanging around here, we're all completely normal. cheers Garrett.
  11. Nice coins guys ! Keep it up, really love seeing the pics
  12. Good luck Cathrine ! I've just had a look and some fantastic coins there ! Pity about not having someone interested enough to pass the coins on to, but that is probably the norm for serious collectors. Will certainly be the case with me as well (will hurt a little to sell while I still am capable to appreciating them). I am certain the next custodians of the coins will adore them as much as you have. Take care cheers Garrett.
  13. Yes agreed Jaggy, shame a collector is ill but no need to feel too bad for acquiring a coin. I am sure a lot/most of my coins have come from estates, and no way most of them are leaving until I go toe-up, and then all the best to the next custodian. cheers
  14. IT professional (Senior Technical Analyst) in the Oracle/Peoplesoft space at the local University. But I feel in love with old coins as a primary school kid a long time ago ......

    1844 crown real or fake?

    Doesn't look too much different to this one sold a few years ago. http://www.noble.com.au/auctions/lot/?id=311206 cheers Garrett.
  16. Very nice coin !! Seeing an 1861 penny with Britannia's left leg blown off. Not a "variety" man ha ha ha carry on. cheers Garrett.

    Yes Happy New Year everyone ! 2018 might be the year I finally get a camera as I suspect taking photo's of coins is an interesting hobby in itself ! My work is bringing in (through enterprise bargaining) a policy where you can cash out your annual and long service leave so I will force myself to spend some of that on a camera set up. Get ready for some shocking pics of coins ha haha. Cheers Garrett

    Robinson Cutler Token

    Interesting. Strange to think the coin would have been so worn by 1838. Might have had a helping hand.... ? cheers Garrett.

    New Member - Knows enough to be dangerous

    Welcome Jester. Great area of interest and one very common in Oz as we used the British silver until (and no doubt after) we got our own from 1910. Cheers - Garrett.

    1863 penny

    Yes what a fascinating find. Wonder how it got there..... Is it an old house ? Penny doesn't look too badly beaten up.....

    Early milled

    Yes I'd guess still doing the rounds as the re-coinage of 1816 rolled around.
