    Halfpenny ID check

    Yeah, I know but I like a challenge. Thing is, if it is F317 then it's R16. If it was a penny that rare someone would still want it even in that state.

    50p, the actual numbers so far....

    Given the number of people collecting 50ps, and the availability of information about them to non-collectors via the internet, do you think we will ever see (for example) a Kew Gardens 50p in Fine?

    1920 & 1924 halfpenny variants

    Didn't leave much out, did he?

    Halfpenny ID check

    I can't see anything about the obverse to discount 9.

    Halfpenny ID check

    1874. I think this is F317: obverse 9 reverse K. I've not much to go on, but Freeman notes that "Usually the date numerals are widely spaced and low in the exergue". Is that what I'm seeing here?

    1920 & 1924 halfpenny variants

    Cheers Ian, I thought it was probably me! Not variants I need to be looking out for then...
  7. Obverse 13 for me Paddy, going by the pointing of the leaves to the bottom colon dot.
  8. My copy of Freeman notes: "*New 1911 die pairings and variants of 1920 and 1924 exist, please see appendix IV" However, appendix IV skips from 1911 to 1970 with no mention of 1920 and 1924. Either I'm missing something, or the book is. Can anyone provide me with the details please? Cheers, Jon

    Alan Hunt coins?

    My childhood dentist was Dr Pepper. I have been lectured at by a Dr Nurse. Dr P. Nurse, to be precise.

    1884 Half Crown

    Yes, die clash. You get the same in early Jersey pennies. The lines are from the background of the shield. http://jerseycoins.com/pen13/Intel/misc/striations.htm

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Quite right Paddy, free listings means that there's no downside for a seller listing worthless crap. However, on the flip side I reckon that many of our rarest finds would have remained unlisted if they charged fees.
  12. A little bit. But have a cup of tea and it'll soon pass. Nice find.
