    Even so Richard, that one's a bit of a horror. I'm convinced that this is another.

    When was the sale Mike? Some of those prices were incredible - £500 for the F164a that looks fire damaged or something? Someone must have really wanted that one.

    Can you still see the Crocker sale? Can't find it on Colin Cooke's site.
  6. Only the second one I've seen where the top of the ear is still intact (the other being the far superior one Terry found), although no doubt there are plenty I haven't seen. Chuffed to bits, and the seller included a free halfpenny too.

    I can't believe I've had it in hand and didn't notice until I took a photo of it. I've probably looked at every ebay picture you have...and I've got to start again now!

    You're not wrong. And I need my eyes tested, mine's a F174.

    Court's survey suggests that they should account for about 1.4% of the population, but finding them even in low grade is surprisingly hard.

    I didn't even know that one existed.
