    The G after REG is the only thing a bit unusual, always present, with that rectangular bit to the left of the bar . Here's my example:-

    Thanks Ian. I've added this information to my varieties and collection websites, acknowledging you as source.

    Just looked at my invoice. The total "juice" amounts to 33.8% exactly. I believe there is import duty on this sale, but I didn't think it was as much as 6.8 sodding per cent !

    Actually Mike, it's only 5%. Commission is Buyer's premium (24% of hammer + VAT) + Import  (5% of hammer)

    i.e  £1000 hammer attracts £288 premium plus £50 import - £1338.00 total

    Nevertheless, an additional 5% is less than welcome !

    Yes, they are very good likenesses but fortunately they have different numbers of border teeth.

    True 1933 - obverse 162 teeth, reverse 184 teeth

    Fake 1933 - obverse 160 teeth, reverse 159 teeth ( I did a quick count and must check these)

    Just recounted - both sides of the fake have 160 teeth.
