    1981 10p

    When I tried to get one a few years ago, Michael told me they were impossible to find.
  4. Sorry, I wasn't correcting/commenting on your statement - merely pointing out where people could get a better view. R
  5. It's example 1 of 8 on my rare penny site.
  6. Hopefully not - there's at least half a dozen of these.
  7. Yes, monetary value was never a consideration in my collecting although I was always hoping that it would hold its value in case I found myself with the need for costly medical attention or care.
  8. This reflects my own view - I think I have missed out on the optimum time to dispose of my collection so the question is whether to wait and hope for an upturn or cut my losses and sell before things get worse?
  9. It's lot No 2082, but it's got a dash against it in the realised prices? Yes, it wasn't sold. I was listening and the auctioneer tried hard to get 80K for it but no-one would bid. He then passed it but said "see me later" so there may have been someone there wanting to negotiate on commission or something like that ?

  11. I dropped the possibility into conversation with my wife and her face left me in no doubt as to her view.........
  12. Absolutely - it appears there's nothing to stop anyone inventing a new Freeman number for an unrecorded "variety" and pulling the wool over the eyes of unsuspecting collectors not fully au fait with the range.
  13. *And is now for sale again in the Baldwins Hong Kong auction on 25 June (lot 752) !
