    Pennies & halfpennies... with a thing for mistrikes and errors.
  1. If anyone can see a dot in that first image I need a Specsavers appt. But I've also returned more Ebay purchases than I've kept in the last year, often stupidly taking a gamble on poor quality images. I doubt I'll ever learn..... There's so much crap and too many morons selling on there. Most "errors" are post mint shed work but the sellers are convinced they are genuine. At least I've had no problem with refunds.
  2. If he's convinced, take his money and run..... ;-)
  3. But you can never be sure. So it all comes down to price and whether you can live with it - the not knowing - because if you ever want to sell it, any potential buyer (if you can find one) will also consider the damage. And it is damage so not worth much IMO. It has been on offer for a while with no takers.
  4. Peter "I really don't think these are rare. Like ...... 1912 h".Can't really agree there Peter. A quick search shows there are currently 120 1912H's in all grades on Ebay compared to 9 1895 2mm. Similalry LC has auctioned 40+ high grade 1912H since 2003 but only 10 or so 1895 2mm. I'd say that about shows the difference in scarcity.
  5. Easy to check values by looking up and making comparisons with past auction results? How much do folks think carbon or verdigris spots generally kill value or desirability?
  6. Got this today. 1895 2mm with a trace of lustre around the lettering which I can't get to show on the photos. So a good VF IMO and I think it was reasonable @ £100.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    What's this chap on about? I can't see what he can..... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371286783837

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I suspected it might have been a lunchtime prank at the RM. I'll ask him for a photo of the obverse.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Maybe not the worst, but weird.....anyone know how this could have happened? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PENNY-ERROR-COIN-1948-BRONZE-STAMPED-WITH-1948-FARTHING-RARE-UNKNOWN-ORIGINS-/221722399360?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item339faf5280
  10. Yes.....the lettering and numerals look a bit thick, but compared to the 1970 it's not bad and much better than some of the 52's & 33's etc. Maybe there weren't many made as it's the first I've seen. Not to everyones taste, obviously!
  11. I can't find any literature mention of a 1967 proof penny......so is this a Pobjoy or similar job?
  12. Wow......some amazing pennies here; http://www.ebay.com/sch/UK-Great-Britain-/3394/m.html?item=171688864825&hash=item27f9742c39&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&_ssn=atlasnumismatics
  13. Yes Bernie, thanks.....some coincidence - a few minutes after I posted the request, I received Davids list! hopefully it's already on it's way.
  14. I'm looking for a 1915 penny in lustrous UNC......and have been looking for a while.....preferably under £50 but would consider more for a top example. Not at all easy IMO, so if anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

    1933 Penny

    No, I'm not Neil. I've bought a few things from Gary as he's disposed of a few penny errors from his collection over the past few years. If he was the original source of my Lavrillier copy it might be worth asking him why such a difference in quality between that and some of his current offerings. Must be different private mints producing them.....but how many of these places exist?
