    I think they have done a decent job too .It might look worse in natural light though .

    The 1875H is an odd looking coin . The colour isn't attractive and it has obviously been interfered with .The even colour throughout even on the high points is a give away that something has been done to it recently . I don't mind the 1934 , for a mint toned coin , it isn't obvious that it has been artificially toned .It may have been gived a wipe and toned like that afterwards (I suppose that could be argued as artificially toned ). As you say , not everyones cup of tea. I struggle to see the 1875H appealling to anyone who was looking to spend that amount on an 1875H .

    Coin robbery in Birmingham

    The stolen coins (apart from ones sold at the fair )are on the BNTA stolen coins page . http://www.bnta.net/index.cfm?do=ShowStolen&id=255&title=Robbery at Midland Coin Fair, 9th January 2022 | BNTA
  15. It is probably cheaper to buy an old Mahogany sideboard (and scrap it for timber) , than buy new seasoned Mahogany .Which is ok if you are making your own , but probably a hassle if you are producing commercially . I ended up using Meranti , while not a true Mahogany , has similar properties (nowhere near as attractive though) .
