    Some interesting finds there Larry. What quantities of coins have you gone through to come up with all these?

    No, although the photos are colour in the hardback.

    I can't see this. If I'd not been told otherwise I'd have thought this was a 6 over a slightly rotated 6. I thought I could see the diagonal of the 2 within the loop of the 6 when I looked at yours? Do I need new glasses?

    Well I’m with you with 6/2 I think, and undecided on the last digit. 🙂

    Would like to see a closer / better photo. Do you have it in hand yet?
  8. I get that - just curious. I have one of the Norwich 2ds and some Birmingham Workhouse 3ds and they're comparatively larger so I wondered about yours. I like a big copper.
  9. Surprisingly small for a threepence.
  10. That's nice, what's the size and weight please Rob?

    These people aren't being dealt with properly. The correct response would be to leave them to it, but keep bringing them cups of tea. Come 3am when they're cramped up and desperately uncomfortable, sitting in a cold puddle of their own making they'd be begging to be released.
