    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    The pictures certainly helped, thanks Ian. I see that although superficially similar the second 8 is quite different too. Are these both considered 25c then? I'm scratching my head now.

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    I thought I had one of these - it has the die crack from the truncation but also a repair to the 1 and none to the first A of BRITANNIA.

    Thames Find

    That's cool. What is it and how old is it?
  4. Congratulations, you must be well pleased to have finally tracked it down.

    More Pennies

    Can you send me a copy when they've done it please?
  6. I had 38 tomato plants this year. I grow about a dozen different varieties so I have everything from "garden sweets" to big ones for cooking. I'm hopefully taking delivery of a Spetchley Red grape vine sometime today. Never tried growing a watermelon, or any other melon for that matter.
  7. Cleaned the greenhouse out? Surely it's too early for your tomatoes to have finished? Still got toms plus cucumbers, aubergines and chillies in mine.
  8. I don't have one, but I don't know why you thought it wouldn't be interesting.
  9. Paltry? Not very interesting? I don't know why you bother to be honest. I'd be happy with either of those.

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    It was only a space filler - says so in the listing. In the Grand Prix some cars drove round and the overtaking was done during pit stops rather than out on the track. Probably.

    Rare coin lost in post

    Financially, maybe, but what about the loss of a scarce coin to the collecting community? You own a number of coins that are probably unique, some of which you've likely had your eye on for years. What if they were lost on the way to you from the auction house? You are refunded, as is the auction house. Has anyone lost out?

    Rare coin lost in post

    That's disappointing for you, the buyer and the numismatic world. Fingers crossed it will eventually surface.
