    More Pennies

    I already have a Gouby x . It is a horrible looking coin though. It has been polished to death , but at least I have one .....and it was cheap .

    More Pennies

    Thanks for showing this . It reminded me that I didn't have one , so I went on ebay to see what was on offer .Found one partially attributed with 10 mins to go with a 99p top bid .A gap filled for the princely sum of £1.04 lol
  3. An 84 proof set for sale on ebay for $1100 !!!! .A specimen set sold in June for £70 . Hopefully won't be as difficult to get as the 2002
  4. Thanks Richard . I have been messing about with it , and it seems idiot proof (which should suit me) . First attempt looks ok , not as good as yours though .I have used my own pics and not the ebay ones though. my own pic
  5. I am downloading it now . Hope it is easy to use .

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Going by the upright of the 7 splitting the lower loop evenly , I would say they are both 10c. Thanks for the information .

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-Queen-Victoria-Pennies-1848-High-Grades-/143696323059?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&nma=true&si=zGNhOPeEfsB5VMffTHlQjngAylU%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc I don't own a copy of Bramah , so I wouldn't be able to tell the difference .The one that had the verd isn't far off Unc , but through a loupe ,I did notice someone had lightly scratched a FB on it (Couldn't see it with the naked eye , well not mine anyway lol).

    The verd was just surface and came of easily (treated with Verdi care ) .Just looks like some carbon spots now.

    Got 2 1848/7 pennies for £26 . Was struggling to get one for that price , but managed to get lucky .One has been cleaned ,but they are nice grades even if they do have some issues .
  10. Another date filled .Bought a couple of 1848 pennies from ebay . one has obviously been cleaned and the other had a bit of surface verd .The verd came off easily and treated it with Verdi-care , so it looks like it has a couple of carbon spots now .Hoped that they would be an 1848 and an 1848/7 , so I could have filled two gaps ( 8/6 would have been nice , ) , but both are 1848/7 . These are the ebay pics . I have tried for 20 mins to resize the ones I took ,and have given up .
  11. Less than fine . Mines was the £35 one .No idea if it was a decent price for it , but I thought it was worth a punt.
  12. There was 2 , both similar grades , asking prices were £90 and £35 .Only the dearer one left now .
  13. I am more than happy with it, but I was under the impression that most penny collectors had one ,and they weren't that hard to get .
