  1. The diamond thing looks like a shirt button, they normally come as a set of 4.
  2. Hit the link above and you can buy this years paperback version from Amazon!
  3. Is that the same one sold by Rasmussen in 2006?
  4. Chris is there going to be a kindle edition of this years CC?
  5. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog?
  6. Is this the same Malcolm Lewendon who is given credit by Maurice Bull in ESC for helping with the Gothic Florin series (see today's posts about Gothic Florins) which is a bit of a coincidence.
  7. From ESC, 1853 dot after date (dad) is R3 and no dot is common. 1856 there is only a no dot. 1858 ditto 1859 dad is normal, and no dot R 1865 has both no stop 2 varieties one R4 and the other S and colon which is R2 and no dad. 1866 no dot is R, colon is R3, no dad. and Davies appears to agrees. The Gothic Florins have got to be the most difficult and varied of all the milled silver issues.
  8. Think mine's a "ship sinking on a choppy sea"!

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Whitman-Florins-Collection-1911-to-1940-Coin-Set-NO-1927-Proof-30-Silver-Coins/323985376838?hash=item4b6f088646:g:EAsAAOSwa2dd0-eb £180 and doesn't even include the 1927!
  10. IMO the ear looks worn (or poorly struck) which could be indicative of a bit of polishing. It would be nice to see the reverse and check the roses and thistles. Unfortunately like everyone else I've only got the 1927 proof version to compare.
  11. Compared to my 1896 it looks like a longer tooth variety.

    1884 Half Crown

    My 1883 has both the ear and eye marks.
  13. I notice that set doesn't have a crown and as such is not listed in any of my literature, I suspect it was a very small private run done by the mint. Pity the picture doesn't show the obverse as I cannot see if it has a frosted/cameo design.
  14. The comparison between mine and Santa's Penny clearly shows the difference between reverses A and B.
  15. I have the farthing as a F664 2B cross points between 2 beads and I of farthing points to a tooth.
