    Stuff to Make Us Laugh

    'Stuff To Make Us Laugh' ? I know plenty of people who aren't laughing.

    'Boom, boom' Chris. Very good.

    1679 Crown - Is this 3rd or 4th bust?

    For comparison here are two 1679 3rd bust crowns sold by LCA. The first they graded Fine, the second Very Fine.

    You're very welcome Weaver. I'd grade Fine. Maybe one or two other members here may like to offer their assessment?

    1679 Crown - Is this 3rd or 4th bust?

    Hi Weaver, Third bust. One thing: on downloading your photo I noticed part of the jpeg title says 1679 VF. This coin isn't VF.

    To clarify: List price was £98 plus p&p, but the seller was offering a seasonal 10% discount on all coins so my total, for a very nice good fine Gouby X, was £91. And I still have the one I'd grade fine, also bought from eBay a couple of years ago, for £1.50 inc p&p.

    I think this is the one Blakey means: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/THE-BIG-George-V-PENNY-AUCTION-1911-Penny-as-shown-Low-START-/294648763044?hash=item449a6f52a4%3Ag%3AtW0AAOSwFCBhtJ~q&nma=true&si=x5XhPMN40oppHpvvgkGwNxXi%2Fvs%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    Today I bought one, grading a tad lower, for £91 inc p&p. Still a nice bargain and I'm happy with it. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1911-Penny-Rare-Hollow-Neck-Variety-George-V-as-shown-/115160689644?hash=item1ad01cabec%3Ag%3AzE4AAOSwck9hyyWb&nma=true&si=x5XhPMN40oppHpvvgkGwNxXi%2Fvs%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Yes, pre obverse die crack would be a bonus but surely a realistic grade would be NVF?

    Again, not eBay. This time Colin Cooke (not the man himself, obviously). AEF, and delightful. AEF? Delightful? Er....
  12. I would think die-fill most likely as I can see a ghosting of that missing upper horizontal.

    1763 Northumberland shilling

    Just taken a closer look. Yup, deffo all wrong. Avoid.

    1763 Northumberland shilling

    Worryingly mushy.
  15. I've attended lots of recitals and performances in the Lady Chapel, a programme of Tallis being particularly memorable. The acoustics are wonderful.
  16. On four visits now I've stood inside St Mark's in Venice and, every time, have been overwhelmed by the beauty of my surroundings. Old places of worship: y'can't beat 'em. Should anyone on here find themselves in the vicinity I recommend Liverpool's Anglican cathedral. Even us Irish Catholics have to admit the building is astonishingly beautiful. 70 years to build, and every stone carved by hand.

    Well at least 'Dimondgirl/Marlybob' had sense enough not to attempt it with one of these..... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/393711712995?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20200818143230%26meid%3Da000239f2fef477e813ef7a68a48e948%26pid%3D101224%26rk%3D5%26rkt%3D5%26sd%3D255237698933%26itm%3D393711712995%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DDefaultOrganicWeb&_trksid=p2047675.c101224.m-1

    Looking For a Low-Grade 1622 Sixpence

    No. It's to be placed in a shoe on a wedding day. Just buy a cheap half decent example and don't overthink it.

    These are available from over here. None 'icky'. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/313754556907?hash=item490d3a99eb:g:HIAAAOSwwKRhNTOa https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/284500352261?hash=item423d8add05:g:nAYAAOSwClthOcXg https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/283654918763?hash=item420b26926b:g:0XEAAOSwNANeaQF2 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224511850624?hash=item3445f2f880:g:XFQAAOSwFRdg1357

    Bargain! Particularly as the reason for relisting being the final bid of £720 realised last time was considered too low. Why not tell her you've reconsidered your offer and go lower? In the absence of shill bids it'd be fun to know just how far down she'd go.

    Not Marly Bob, but didn't correct the spelling when typing as Bob Marly...... Oh, and WTF is a 'Dimond'? 😉

    Apologies, I must've been awol the day the 1921 penny was declared a key date and therefore circulated specimens worth hundreds. I really must try to keep up.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/3394/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=1921+penny&_sop=16

    £590 and counting. 34 bids from 5 bidders.

    Of course, you're quite right, there were more than one. I wonder if we'll see this bid up to 8K for a second time? https://www.ebay.co.uk/bfl/viewbids/255207897503?item=255207897503&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2565
