    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Just an update for anyone who has one or maybe interested ,both the Large rose sold after the auction for the reserves. Although was only informed this morning.

    Yes ,i must of set the reserves to high ,which is always hard if not much to compare them with. However IMO much better than having a reserve that is to low and risk giving them away ,just a case of trying to be fair / realistic and now found out i was wrong 😀

    Yes the Large date is only what i consider rare in grades above VF ,like most copper penny varieties you can find most if you look hard enough. Try finding them in high grade though...... I have this Large date in the Baldwin Auction and not many as good to the best of my knowledge ,if it wasnt for the ejection pinch at the top i feel it may of graded higher.

    Halfpenny ID check

    Not the exact same place ,but i bought this penny the other week and in between the same letters ,maybe something to do with a setting out mark as a bit coincidental that the dot could be anywhere else on the coin.

    Just to add to how rare these are although you know F474 4+C. I have just been talking to Dave Craddock and over 40 years has looked at thousands and never found one ,in his opinion they are much rarer than R12 👍 If he tells me something is extremely rare it will be , as MOST types of BRONZE coins he will of had a few of and probably handled and looked at more than anyone else.
  7. Not purchased this week but received back from NGC today. Really happy with the grade as although its a weak strike as quite a few are they are scarce BU and Graded RED. Verify NGC Certification | NGC (ngccoin.com)

    Yes Dave phoned me Sunday asking why he had lots of people ask him for it , as he didnt think they were rare and seen and had plenty Large roses. By his own admission he didnt know the SMALL date was worth more and just priced as large rose 😀 The coin in Balwin is mine and the Low estimate of £400 i felt going off previous sales with only a few known fair.

    Baldwin bought the coin last Tuesday and the OBV picture just a quick one on the day they bought it. The coin has now SOLD though ,just incase anyone was interested ,rather than wasting your time making enquiries.
  10. I only buy the 1920 Florin Dave and no other years ,they are really hard to find. Sounds a bit daft but do the same with some other denominations but only certain years. Like the 1934 ( i bought one this week ) and 1944 pennies i always buy if they are really nice.
  11. I always buy these if i see any in high grade at the right price ,you dont see many.

    Looking for a 1953 VIP proof farthing

    Looking at the sale at LCA with the LOT number that is still on the slab ,its the same coin i used the REV picture of on the other thread. I wondered where it may of ended up or who may of bought it from LCA ,well spotted. Its also on the CGS website as 2 + B 👍
  15. Thanks to Gary the coin Is OBV 7 and not the normal HALP which is OBV 6 ,i didnt have a clue. Thought i would mention it incase anyone else didnt know it was on both OBV dies or interested.
