  1. Excuse me Vegas - The Queen IS a Bird !!!!!
  2. What is the "Collective" name for Numismatists ?

    1. 1949threepence


      Don't know, but I'd put forward two suggestions, "A collection" or "A cabinet" ;)


  3. Spanish Pesetas

    I have four 5,000peseta notes - are they worth anything ? Would the bank take them back ?
  4. 130 / 8 = 16 and thus 2 x 8 = 16 so its getting even luckier
  5. CGS "membership" Fee

    Will it work if you take a "Second" or a "Minute" to give it a "Hand" or two ? :-)
  6. March LCA catalogue now up

    I am glad you are not bidding as I have my fingers crossed for the Brass 3D's
  7. March LCA catalogue now up

    Thanks Mat. I will be able to view on the morning before the auction. There are about 30 lots I would like. One benefit is I can pay on the day and submit to them for slabbing what I want slabbing without having to worry about posting them.
  8. March LCA catalogue now up

    Where can you view photos of coins in the catalogue without photos ? - There are a few coins I am interested in that don't have pics.
  9. I in BRITT in penny?

    I can always rely on you to advise me Mat. I have been looking for a 1911 Hollow neck for about a month. Remember when I could not find a 1920 florin in high grade - found one at York Coin fair at the FIRST table I looked - KB Coins. I was chuffed. I also found a Matte Proof £5 1902 & and a £5 1902 currency both at MS63. Shame they didnt cost same as the 1920 Florin - LOL
  10. I in BRITT in penny?

    I dont know if this will help but this is a 1911 penny I of BRITT to a tooth
  11. Penies - Edward VII

  12. Penies - Edward VII

    I am looking to complete my Edward VII penny and half penny runs as best I can. If you have any high grades you can bare to part with let me know. I would look at ANY grade I do not have or will take any upgrade whether it was slabbed or raw
  13. Maybe you will get some snow. Well I must drag my weary bones out of the Man Cave and struggle to work to sit there and look at more coins - Its a hard life
  14. Thanks for that Mat - Appreciated !!! The coin in question is a Quarter Farthing and I was asked the question which you have answered. To give some thing back in return for your advice it is cold, grey and wet here in "Sunny Yorkshire"
  15. Does anyone know if lustre / luster will fade on its own after time. I know that other items, like curtains or paintings, if left in sunlight will fade. I make mattresses and I know for a fact that foam goes a darker brown due to the warehouse lights exactly like a sun tan and you can see the "Strap Lines" on the foam where the foam above it has been like a very pronounced shadow. Coins change due to oil from our fingers so if a coin is untouched and in a cabinet or box which is dark will the lustre fade over time ? Advise Please !
