    Pete, do you know if the photos were taken with the coins on that black background or whether the background was blackened later ?
  2. secret santa


    Totally agree.
  3. secret santa


    All these minor differences; are they new varieties or not - perhaps we need a VAR for coins ???
  4. secret santa


    I don't want to pick a fight or even start a lengthy debate but, if we define a classic "variety" as being a particular die-pairing of a unique obverse design with a unique reverse design, thereby becoming a unique combination of obverse and reverse, then F164A fits slap bang into that definition.

    Strange that Freeman didn't know about its existence between 1969 and 1978 - make the DNW provenance of "discovery coin" a little less important ?

    Victoria Penny 1867

    Often called the "crow's foot" this die clash occurs on many dates - this one is an 1877.

    That's why they call it a "modified effigy".
  8. Well spotted Gents - I put this up on my website without thoroughly checking. Shame on me !
  9. Nice one Mike - I need one like this. By the way, if you would crop your photos, you'd save me hours😀

    Yes, it's as straightforward as that. Do exactly as Mike says. Or, if you want, I shall be attending and could bid up to your maximum on your behalf.
  11. I suspect they'll get added over the next few days.

    It's a nice clean example - go for it !
  13. A lot of new specimens of some real rarities - I wonder whose collection it was ?

    where do the photos come from Pete ?
  15. I voted to leave but the biggest threat to us now is a Corbyn government rather than staying in the EU.
