    I think that the large rose variety has been getting a bit of publicity lately and dealers are probably cashing in.
  4. There's another one in the next Noonan's auction.
  5. I have an 1855 P.T. penny which I bought because it appears to have the date numeral 5s in different fonts with the right hand 5 slightly "fatter". However, the reverse of this coin appears to have a slightly different design with Britannia's chain mail bodice having what I describe as an ornate central panel. It's a pity that the coin isn't a higher grade but nevertheless it does look different to me. Normal Plain Trident reverse My coin's reverse Sorry about the size difference - it must be to do with the resolution of the originals.

    New Victoria Copper Penny reverse ?

    It looks normal to me. The "tail" on mine looks fatter.

    New Victoria Copper Penny reverse ?

    Probably not. I don't have a microscope and the coin is slabbed. I'll have a go but don't hold your breath.

    Because the whole world is dumbing down around us. Why does every TV programme begin with a summary of what is to follow ? Why does every news item have to have a piece of film illustrating what is being said ?

    1866 Penny narrow high 6

    That's much clearer and definitely not something that I've seen before.

    Larry, we need a photo containing all 4 date numerals to make a comparison.

    Could you post the reverse for completeness, Terry.
  16. A nice but not rare 1860 F10 with a large die crack went for £580-80. I don't understand it. It looks as though I should get my entire collection slabbed before I sell it.

    Not the greatest photo but I see no trace of a 3.

    I think that's a racing certainty, but hopefully they will be produced in such volumes that speculators won't be able to cash in.

    Coin robbery in Birmingham

    That's pathetic if not unexpected.
