    Stan Laurel? I thought it was Half Man Half Biscuit. 😆
  2. I thought it was the gap between the 8s.

    Charles III portrait

    Only from the point of view that this is the first coin I have used in a domestic transaction with a monarch other than The Queen. Apart from that it's just as collectible as any other 50p to me. If I come across a commemorative I keep them but I have little interest in modern mint issues. The quality of our coins has taken a real nosedive in the last 20 years. I mean, Paddington? F****** Paddington?
  4. Hi all, As I struggle to get to grips with bronze halfpennies, I'd be grateful if someone could check my guesses please. F282? Thanks, Jon

    Let's not forget that this is the second invasion of Ukraine, and that Crimea is theirs and should be returned to them.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Are you kidding? ebay tacitly encourages the selling of fakes by paying no more than lip service to their "policing". They don't care what sells, as long as it sells and they make money.

    Do you think that looks deliberately iffy?

    Auction House Fees

    This. If I have £500 to spend then I don't suddenly have £600 because the BP has gone up.

    Is it just me who thinks that's not a bad job of removing the crud from the farthing?

    Puts me in mind of the Latvian 2 Santimi with / without signature. I think they all display traces of the signature.

    Charles III portrait

    Yes, it's a lousy photo and it does look better in hand.

    Charles III portrait

    Got my first Charles III coin in change last night.

    Halfpenny ID check

    Yes, would have been quite a tidy example otherwise.

    Is this poor thing a F264?

    I don't leave a gap. If I get that lucky then I'm prepared to move everything along one.

    That's a part of collecting I don't get. I don't have the desire to replace rarity with fakes / replicas or whatnot. You'd spend your money and still not have a 1933 penny.

    Because then I've got something not many other people have got.

    Some interesting finds there Larry. What quantities of coins have you gone through to come up with all these?
