    name for large marbles

    'Ollies' were your regular marbles. The larger ones and ball bearings were 'Bullies'.

    Yes, I thought it a tad mushy looking too.

    'Light tooling'? Whitby Goth eyeliner. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/374212849519?mkevt=1&mkpid=2&emsid=e90001.m43.l1123&plmtId=700008&mesgId=3024&mkcid=8&ch=osgood&bu=44013324433&trkId=edbf371e-b52f-493a-9f67-a641c0f92a12&cnvId=700003&recoId=374212849519&recoPos=1

    Though none will buy, obviously. Same seller's full list. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?item=125587797461&rt=nc&_ssn=alibat-143&_pgn=1 I'm drawn to the rather lovely 1977 crown. Very rare, apparently, so likely a snip at £150....

    Many bargains to be had for the canny investor. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/11116/i.html?_ssn=santoor-uk&store_name=santooremporium&_oac=1&_pgn=1

    Evasion and Contemporary Counterfeits

    You're very welcome. Did you spot, more than once, reference is made to the coining of sovereigns. 1690s?

    BBC. Impartial. Sport. The BBC, being a license financed, non ad revenue, broadcaster, brand names and logos are always edited out wherever possible, even to the extent of food brand identifiers being clumsily censored by use of black tape on containers in cookery shows. Sport? Come footy post match analysis; any manager, player, associated pundit, loon with a view, is shown standing before a board festooned with ads for all manner of companies and products. Why is this?

    I've been told these daft listings can sometimes be money laundering.

    Completed listings shows it last closed at £155 so I suspect, whatever the seller ID, she's now so familiar people are happy to have a bit of fun at her expense. Who here remembers the slightly faulty decimal coin she asked a million for because she wanted to buy a chippy?

    "The coin does have a small hole on it likely to be from use." Eh?
