  1. I had a George II farthing with a George III date a few years back . I think I got £10 on ebay for it (straight to the States ). Wasn't a particularly grade condition coin , but had an identifiable portrait and clear date . A decent return for a coin that came out of a dealers 50p tub .

    Goubys The British bronze penny .

    Hi did give me the opportunity when I enquired a couple of months back ,that I could have the current edition (and get the updates when they come out) or wait for an updated edition .He is possibly making sure everyone who already has it gets the chance of the updates before he releases the full updated version .

    Goubys The British bronze penny .

    No email as of yet . Is he starting with amendments and additions ? I am waiting for a full updated edition , as I don't have the earlier one .

    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 .

    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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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 .
  13. 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 .
  14. 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.
  15. There was 2 , both similar grades , asking prices were £90 and £35 .Only the dearer one left now .
  16. 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 .
  17. not very interesting but another "variety" off my list .F147
  18. I found the PT hard enough to get at a reasonable price ,so I doubt I will be getting an OT anytime soon . Still got a couple of spaces to fill first .
  19. another gap filled in my penny run .

    top one is my straight one . bottom is the wavy one .It looks wavy with a loupe , but magnified more ,it has a narrower top part and it looks like the wavy part is caused by the number being more chamfered at the bottom .

    Checked my 1902 LT and it was straight bottomed , but had a search in my spares box and found another 2 .One straight and one wavy .
