Oh, er, on second thoughts, I couldn't help but do so... Dickheads.

    UK Election

    Absolutely Chris. I came here six or seven years ago thinking I'd found my tribe. It's now all rather depressing. Where are those regulars who made this such a fun place to swap ideas and comments? My tribe? Nah.

    MS 63 ?

    The images I posted here are the Eddie 2/6 which is being discussed in this topic. The email I refer to was sent our usual mates chat and has nothing to do with this Pre D stuff. Check in, I'm up for a while yet.

    MS 63 ?

    Yes, that's the OP coin Chris. Graded MS63. Other news: I sent you an email yesterday. Bargain of the week?

    This was in my inbox this morning:

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    At it again I see…. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WOW-BREXIT-AND-RONALDO-MICRO-INSCRIPTION-POLYMER-FIVE-POUND-NOTES-x2/123951517239?hash=item1cdc160e37:g:S3kAAOSwvGtdoJlg
  11. Coppers, my apologies, a post reading simply 'Er….?' made no sense. I was responding to your comment regarding estate collections and wondering if I'd missed some important information on here. I see now you were just making a general point, and it's one with which I would concur.
  12. Dark, reverse B, seven to gap. The common variety (I think?). GVF or NEF? Hard to tell from the scan. Still, a pound? Bargain.

    Clumsiest example I've ever seen. Couldn't even be bothered to match the portraits. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Scarce-double-headed-penny-George-V/283636549584?hash=item420a0e47d0:g:sqEAAOSwqZNdm9dO

    You would think, by now, he'd at least know what a dump farthing looks like. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/George-Farthing-1717-Unrecorded-Last-7-Inverted-RARE/233359054885?hash=item3655489825:g:YVMAAOSwfttdlj9C

    Late 1960s: I found this in the street.
  19. As already stated, a normal 63 with grot on the last digit. Here for comparison: normal/the 3 with grot/the 3 with grot erased.
