  1. 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?

    What's wrong with people. It's not even as good as the Spink plate coin, and that only cost 34K last time out with a handful of bidders.

    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?

    Best little fireside story I’ve read in quite some time, that…they should be selling the story, NOT the coins, pure entertainment :D 


    Currently at £54 and 24 bids.

    I see the lucky chimney find is at £37, with 17 bids, and with 6 days still to run. I suspect it likely a few rascals having a bit of fun?

    Poor dear, she's been let down in the past by winning bidders who failed to pay up for her 1933 pennies hasn't she.

    Tsk, you just can't depend on people these days.

    So, fingers crossed this time eh? Told it may be worth around a quarter of a million, so listed on eBay, without reserve, at a starting price of 99p.🤞

    Quite a house in Leeds she lives in... One of her earlier 1933's was found inside a clock, I seem to remember, and now one up her chimney... 😉

    Wonder where the next one will be discovered... Any guesses?!

    The third came in a Whitman folder with a date run of other worn pennies and a crude hole had been cut in the margin of one of the pages for the 1933. The collection had been bought at a charity sale held at The Church of St Cross in Middleton.
