    Gonad lubrication 😉 Nice! Looks a bit down at heel...

    1945 3d Discovered

    Did you buy it @VickySilver?

    I'd be delighted to own either Paddy or ozjohn's 1910 half crowns 😄
  4. Nice. I distinctly remember looking at my watch nearly 18 years ago at 20:02 on the 20th February 2002. That was a triple palindrome in UK date format!
  5. Interesting perspective @JLS. I've actually taken almost the opposite approach - in that I've changed my main coin collecting focus towards new UK precious metal bullion coins, and away from predecimal numismatic coins. My reasoning being that I'm not going to lose my shirt on these coins (assuming the intrinsic metal value doesn't fall through the floor) if I need to turn them back into hard cash at short notice, and I can buy them at a relatively small premium compared to their intrinsic resale value. I also think that many of these bullion coins are beautiful in their own right. Currently I'm not looking to buy any older sovereigns although I would love to own some of the 19th Century Double or Quintuple sovereigns. I did still buy a good few predecimal coins last year, but this year they will much lower down the priority list. I need to save up to buy 6 more gold bullion coins this year first!
  6. Still, a million quid buys a lot of other vices 😉

    I applaud your enthusiasm and diligence, but to paraphrase one or two others on here - all I'm seeing is either 'rang tang' or 'a thrower' 😋

    I'm struggling to join the dots. Can anyone give me a synopsis of this ellipsis hypothesis... ?
  9. It's actually the original spelling of bride-to-be 😉
  10. ^^^ That will leave everyone snookered for the maximum amount of time. Back on the bird theme - most weekday lunchtimes I walk round a park local to my office. There are a couple of jays in there too, which I enjoy looking out for.
  11. Oh gosh, not Yew again. Don't talk to me in such clipped tones, or we'll have to set some boundaries between us.
  12. Good grief. You all need to get back in your Box.

    Richard - I put a thread on the forum when i went there nearly three years ago now - how time flies! Sadly, the photos don't show properly now because of Photobucket but hopefully you'll get an idea of what sort of stuff is there. Some true rarities... The strike your own coin is whatever they offer at the time - you have no choice. When I was there in Feb 2017 it was the yet-to-be released new £1 coin, but sometimes it can be a coin not intended for circulation. The coin is struck twice, so it's a better strike than a normal circulating coin.
