    Royal Mint 2022 Unc set

    Yes, this was a swift addition after they'd sold out. They wisely realised there was a lot more money to be made out of minting a few more sets. They're still asking silly money on Ebay, though: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/354272064282?hash=item527c42b31a:g:ZkYAAOSw9qFjHH3m&amdata=enc%3AAQAHAAAAoL3S7E1IAbOGDTxFKFqBtRKqOeLsN5qrVXScqXw7frUhCr10UB%2BXv1UF%2FFcL0DQaWwznwOncOxxdWI1JLeoT4rfjSMehjiUQJRVXiyu%2BiV99Q3154ida1zcQr3aZL41cgGJoBUjHk69jp%2BivQ0WjpgEuGjzU10MNWotqwMM%2B3r%2FCqwSpiR1Nty4cDtvBMVU%2BKjoQfXpfzpGOcEkh2bKrbZo%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR5LD2oflYA

    Ian, is it OK for me to add your splendid pictures to my varieties site (with appropriate accreditation, of course) ?

    I would add that Style E has the base of the 7 pointing to either a tooth (with the 5 over a gap) or a gap (with the 5 over a tooth).

    Royal Mint 2022 Unc set

    Vultures cashing in on the Queen's death. I can just see the headlines - "Last chance to get her final year's coins". It didn't take them long. Last night I was 5150th in the queue for the Mint website !

    R.I.P. Queen Elizabeth

    King George VI reigned for the first four and a half years of my life but I was never really aware. We had a coronation party at Infants' school when I was 5 and Queen Elizabeth has been there ever since. Her passing has affected me more than I ever thought it would.
  7. I still receive their catalogues.

    That'll do for me. Thanks Pete (I think it's Pete - we met at DNW a couple of years ago).

    Ex-H Deane collection. I don't know who H Deane was, but he owned some very nice coins and presumably had decided that this coin was a proof. It needs to be seen in hand. The Baldwins catalogue picture doesn't show the die clash

    The Baldwin's catalogue states that "this is undoubtedly a proof" and it sold for £729-28. Ex-H Deane collection.
  11. Blake, you don't appear to have left negative feedback yet ?

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Very rare although quite common on the planet Vulcan, I understand.

    DNW changing names.....?

    I was able to search on "penny" successfully. And I eventually found the coin that I'd saved to my cabinet as you describe above, saved within the particular auction. Not at all intuitive but it's there if stick at it. Still very slow, though, on my PC.

    I enjoy reading the different viewpoints and evidence but I don't enjoy personal attacks.

    Come on guys. Remember this is a Coin Forum and don't get personal. Leave it to Rebecca Vardy and Colleen Rooney.

    proposed heating payments this winter

    "never was a truer word spoken" referred to the "we'd better get used to it" rather than "What we've experienced the last week is not a freak event".

    proposed heating payments this winter

    Never was a truer word spoken because, as sure as hell, the biggest culprits are going to do nothing about it. And, with our 1% emissions, we're just p*ssing in the wind.
  20. Agreed (but surely you didn't go through the catalogue with a calculator ?)
  21. They have offered no explanation. Could it be that this approach gives them the best results ???
  22. No, at least on Ebay you can see the progressive bidding but with LCA you're completely blind, submitting commission bids and hoping that a) you'll win and b) you won't have to pay your top bid.

    Victoria Bronze Halfpennies R19 wanted

    It's possible that they really paid over the odds to get their first example and then want to wait a while for inflation to raise prices before they sell ?
