    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Have a nice visit and don't forget to bring us all back a few goodies as well 😁

    Encased Farthings

    What a nice example of one I do not have, very envious 😍😍 Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Encased Farthings Wanted

    Just wondering if any members have any Encased Farthings they would like to part with. I am trying my hardest to find more for the collection. Or perhaps anyone going to any coin fairs could look out for me if at all possible. Unfortunately, there are no fairs in my area and what collectors shops there are don't seem to have any. Anything considered, you can see what I have in the collection from my website link below. If any dealers on here can help get in touch, please. I am also after images of any Encased Farthing I do not have for my reference section on my website that any members are willing to share.I of course, will give you a mention. I do hope some of you can help please.
  6. Hi

    I'm interested in the 1888 groat you have listed on eBay (UIN 31693) - what's the very best you could do outside of eBay?



    Encased Farthings

    Another for the collection. 1907 "Crockers Drapery Exhibition" seen better days but hey ho they are not easy to find 😃

    My Latest Acquisition

    Just added this to the collection. Not hard to find but with a better strike than usually found I think. Am I right in thinking that the 1903 - 1907 threepences are harder to find in top condition?

    Windows Photo Gallery no longer supported

    I agree I use this as well. Also, use PhotoShop and Lightroom.

    Encased Farthings

    Ok don't keep Rabbiting on about it then😁

    Encased Farthings

    Thank you I thought it would be a bit different from the normal ones around and a bit of fun. Will have to change it from time to time, just to keep you on your toes.
  12. Thank you both for your comments the coin in question is graded at CGS 65 so it's not as you both thought. So perhaps its time to break it free from its plastic tomb😲I currently keep all my coins in quadrums☺️
  13. My latest for this week, another gap filled in the 3d collection😃 the pictures are from LCGS my pictures through the slab are not the best. Its the only 3d I have that is slabbed, what's your thought on breaking it out?? My Pictures Below😞

    Encased Farthings

    Another addition to the Encased Farthing collection. Pleased with this one.
  15. Very Very nice coins. I especially like the 1892 3d where do you find coins like this😍
