    1897 dot penny. Advice needed.

    Its not a theory its standard engineering practice, Whats really interesting is my computer says its 17:08 on Friday, but the forum software thinks it is some time on Saturday, 11:40pm. How does that work?

    More Pennies

    Just out of interest Father Andrew had already addressed this issue, and he of course used the correct terminology, minor varieties.

    There you go Peck I do like the comments by three premier coin collectors below

    New book "The Decimal Penny"

    My copy arrived yesterday and its a jolly nice booklet Frank. All the detail, concise and with coloured pictures. Only missing the portcullis rivet position varieties.

    New book "The Decimal Penny"

    Ditto Looking forward to seeing if Franks found any more varieties, that bhx7 and myself haven't already identified.
  6. I would think you are referring to the 1970 Coins and Medals annual That David Sealy refers to. I believe it was collated at the end of 1969, so dosnt include any new discoveries. As for there not being any market for calm seas varieties, good, I dont want my hobby being destroyed by parasites looking for profit.
  7. Dont forget the seven calm sea date varieties (see the 2nd page);
  8. Apology accepted even though it was not required.. There were some other articles attached to that one giving some other details and ideas. Just how effective any of them would be, I dont know. If heat is being sucked in from the surroundings, utilised, and then photons transmitted to outer space, then I think it would be good for cooling your house in Queensland, even if it didnt produce significant Kw. Not sure how it would get on in Canada though!
  9. I think they are suggesting it comes from the warm house (or perhaps from daytime solar heated water.)
  10. You will be pleased to hear that nighttime PV panels (Anti-solar cells) are on the way https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/01/200129174512.htm
  11. You must have been Mike Macartney's best customer! Sold my 02tii after 20 years custodianship a couple of years ago. It was my daily driver. Never let me down.

    UK Election

    Change your gender. I cant see the state pensions people objecting now that the lady who said that there were only two biological types of human was found guilty.
  13. I'm not sure that you understand how ebay (the company) operates. They are not responsible for what is sold on their platform. They make their money by providing a platform for others to use and charging them for its use. Its the others who are responsible for the crap. People need to be more selective of whom they buy from, so maybe only buy from those who operate an ebay store and who presumably pay a fee to do so. I assume one can search only ebay stores. For those who are sell, open an ebay store and show that you are a step above the no fee dross. Just a few thoughts.
  14. I have digitised all the Decimal content for my own use only. Theres not that much actually. I did photocopy all the predecimal variety stuff when I was into that, twenty years ago or so, and there is only a couple of hundred pages.
