  1. I'm chuffed to have recently acquired this from Joe Lee. In many years of looking this and the Nicholson coin (ex Peck) are the only two examples I've ever seen.
  2. The only other example (Nicholson/Peck) known to me. Sold through LCA 04/12/2011. .
  3. Nothing Mike, I simply wanted to join the conversation.

    Stuff to Make Us Laugh

    I found this while making brekkie this morning. If 'That's Life' was still on telly I'd probably be considering sending it to Esther Rantzen....
  5. Every member of the team a credit to their families, their communities, their country. Let's just hope the morons who wrecked Leicester Square earlier today don't go on a booze fuelled rampage tonight. European till I die.

    So, not quite this then. An oldie, but always worth another look....

    Hi Chris.

    Hammered half penny.

    May I also request an ID please? I've had this for years but have never known for sure exactly which it is. It's one of the Edwards, London, and, at 14mm, I assume a half penny. Can anyone (Rob?) assign a Spink number? Thanks.

    Very interesting. Thanks again, it's much appreciated.

    Hammered half penny.

    So, are those trefoils on the reverse of my coin not trefoils at all but pellets flattened by wear ? They certainly don't match the pellets on your lovely coin. Is this why I was searching in the wrong place?

    Fabulous! Thank you very much.

    Hammered half penny.

    I did try again last night myself but still no luck. Is that a cross patée on the obverse, and trefoils in the reverse quarters (or maybe a ship's propellers)? I did think S1558 a possibility, but the obverses don't match. Could it be it's not a half penny and I'm looking in the wrong places?
