    Only the postage but out of pocket is out of pocket...

    I've often thought of doing that, but fear someone might actually accept the offer.
  3. Proof for me, for what that's worth.

    Go on Paddy, I bet you don't have any of those!

    Think a few (i.e. every single one) might have questionable authenticity, to be polite. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/simo_373/m.html?item=292926649032&hash=item4433c9f2c8%3Ag%3A-Q8AAOSw-ghb9OWs%3Ark%3A31%3Apf%3A0&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562
  6. I think you give them too much credit. I don't think they considered for one moment that we might actually vote to leave.

    I'm not lining the pockets of the RM for this crap, it's a horrible series. My girlfriend found a J which I promptly snaffled.
  10. I think the obverse photo on ebay is clear enough to indicate the wear, but it's another one of those annoying photos that I can't zoom in on - there seems to be loads of them these days. Is it a function the seller has to physically disable?

    It was probably the free fingerprints that swung it.

    Except I forgot to say it was George V so obverse 5 used 1928-1936.
