    LETTER........Whithout typing everything or posting the letter that has some detail better not on a public forum Mr Freeman does mention the Coin monthly articles and having previously read them. The coin he had been posted was the first one he had SEEN IN HAND. After mentioning all the differences attribute as 1* an intermediate between OBV 1 & 2. Statistics reported by Alexander 1 in 567 would be R5 on his scale. The scale worked out before decimalisation and now (1978)difficult to estimate how many coins still exsist and if the proportions in which particular types or dates were hoarded is similar or different from the average. Pete.

    Yes i dont have Courts varieties / numbers thought in circulation anymore ,i did have and mailed it a couple of people but lost it when i changed my mail address.It did make me think that the 1978 date seemed a little late and what was actually written in the DNW letter. Freeman does not mention it on some papers i have dated 1980 ,which he was preparing updates and amendments from the first , such as F144 ,151 & 152 not being genuine. Although the letter in the DNW sale is dated 1978 and maybe he was busy trying to find others which without the internet and pictures would not of been easy 🙂 I will phone DNW up to see if they can help me 🙂 ................................................................................................................... Rather than keep posting they are going to scan the letter and mail it me.

    It would probably be interesting to know the contents of the letter by Mr.Freeman in 1978 for the DNW coin. A possibility was the coin was part of a large collection that has been sold by DNW recently and could therefore all stack up if only to confirm they were discovered around 1978. It wouldnt make the coin IMO worth anymore although its better than most and probably know photographs were taken at the time to confirm but an interesting coin with a letter 🙂 If anyone does view the coin / letter and would be prepared to share ( even after buying it ) the information on here or by PM please do. https://www.dnw.co.uk/auctions/catalogue/lot.php?auction_id=512&lot_id=64543 Pete.
  5. No Fletch.......Its an overlay to show the spikes you asked about 🙂. Although i did have the actual coin and a lot of the die clash did show but not as clear as the picture above , a forum member has it now.
  6. This shows how a rotated clash would be also on an 1867 . Pete.

    I wasnt collecting at the time of the DNW Bamford sale Mike and bought it about three years ago already CGS graded. I decided to buy it and put away due to the provenance rather than grade 🙂

    They are just the CGS pictures apart from the F6 with the background changed. Think they stand out a lot better and really clear such as this one .

  13. Forget the coins i would be more worried that it might infect me
  14. Why would an auction house even try to sell them ,they want throwing in the bin and look awafull Agreed i have never seen anything that looks so bad even ones that have been dug up and corroded.

    Pennies High grade.

    Passed this on as needed to send some others today and easier to just put in the same envelope 🙂

    Its about fine Blake although i have not seen it and just what Dave told me on Monday. The price though you are best to phone him up before the weekend as the Wakefield show on Sunday. If you havent got his number and are interested just PM me or alternatively wait for a better one to turn up 🙂

    Dont know if it will help but Dave Craddock has just got a 1861 F28 if anyone is looking for one. I only mention it on here as he will probably sell it at Wakefield on Sunday otherwise 🙂

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Now he has been rumbled Dave and you have caught him out, i will have £500 on him making his listings private in the next couple of weeks 👍
  23. Peter Shhhhhhhhhh . The 1933 penny is a really good buy and well spotted
  24. I notice Richard Lubbok mentioned a couple of times on here and just read the book . Not much about coins and more about what else he was up to ,although often mentions him going to shows and having a shop in London. Good book and is often funny ,although had the down times such as being sent down.
