  1. I am pretty happy with it, as you all know, I am new to this but I am collecting because I want to not to make some fast money.
  2. Thanks for the feedback, I am guessing you never made a mistake in your life? If I planned to flip it and make a quick bit of money I would be concerned. I am not so I am not. I will learn from my mistakes Worse case scenario I would make a small lose/get my money back on ebay.
  3. 11.3g so it seems to be the correct weight?
  4. I will weigh it once I am back from work but this is th ebest picture I can get on my phone.
  5. To add I know that the Obverse is aligned upside down to reverse but is such a variation in the alignement normal?
  6. A couple of pictures to show how the reverse is not aligned:
  7. I was hoping I get get some opinions on these please with regards to grade before I offer to buy them: Thanks Non
  8. Purely becuase I like the look of it and the only sixpence I have looks like it has been dragged across the floor.
  9. Cheers, I think I can probably get it for under £10 so I may go for it. Thank you all for the feedback.
  10. What do you feel a fair price for the 1931 would be?
  11. Thanks Azda, I did notice that, these are down as unc but I very doubt that mych ware just from being in the bag.sWhat would you deem as a fair price for each?

    Well I plan to save my pennies and decide what I really want next. I will be asking advice on here though on any future ebay purchases!

    I was there with my wife and 1 year old so did not get to spend as long as I would have liked, we were there about 90 minutes or so. I did manage to have a chat with a few people running some of the stalls there and explained I was new to the hobby and that I was primarly browsing to get a feel for the coin fair and the people there. I will be going again next month all being well. It would be great to meet you! I think my main issue is that the grading system seems so subjective that people opinions seem to vary a great deal, not to the degree off some of the bandits on ebay, but still enough to baffle a newbie like me. I did make a purchase but that was purely for my silver stack. Regarding your tray, I probably did miss. I tried to look at every table at least once (subject to it not being croweded out) and where I could spend some time looking through what was there I did. My lack of experience and knowledge ultimatly probably stopped me buying something there and then.

    Hi Paulus, thats the one. I went to the Midland coin fair today and couldn't find anything close to that for the money I paid. I did have in my head that the Obverse was higher than the reverse. What is the main reason you would grade the obverse lower? Is it down to the wear on the braid? Again any feedback is appreciated, the more I ask and get back the more I learn

    I will see what I can do to get a better picture but its good to know I was not a million miles away with the grading.

    Ok so I made my first significant (in my newbie eyes) starter purchase today, I estimated the obverse to be close to if not EF and the reverse to be VF due to wear on the harp and lions, maybe even just F due to some wear on the crown but as I am really new to this I would appreciate your feedback.

    Should I be feeling like Admiral Ackbar? What should I be looking to avoid then?

    Thanks all for the feedback. In my hand you can see the obverse has probably been cleaned at some point as the original toning can be seen around the lettering etc,especially under a magnifying glass, that has not been touched. The reverse, as far as I can see, has not been cleaned. These initial coins I see as a being learning curve where I am bound to make mistakes. As long as I learn from them and they are not hitting me too hard in the pocket I do not feel overly concerned. We all have to start somewhere right?

    Thanks for the welcome. At the moment Victorian Florins and Crowns are catching my eye so I think I may focus on reading up more on these over everything else intially.

    Thanks for the feedback, it is appreciated. What would the going rate be on that coin then? I bought it as VF for £22, hoping that I was there or there abouts price wise.
