    DNW Sale Today 7/9/21

    That was a steal, I'd have been well pleased with that.
  2. Sorry Mike, I am confident I know less about it than you. I don't have one in my collection.
  3. Our local hospital unearthed a time capsule from 1903 with a few uncirculated coins in. The picture in the paper only showed the obverse of the penny, and all I could think was "turn it over".
  4. Tidy example Mike, I'd be pleased with that.

    I've just got two minty fresh 2016 2ps from the post office. Are we behind the times here?

    Which IOM coinage please John? The only fit I can see is the 1860 copper halfpenny and the 1839 IOM halfpenny and I'm struggling to get my head round that.

    "Keeping them as a momento" was his defence, i.e. what he made up to try and keep himself out of bother.

    10kg Gold Coin

    It's not a coin in my eyes. Coins are for spending. Pretty it may be but it's just an artistic exercise as far as I'm concerned.

    I can't tell the difference! I only checked the reverse.
