    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    He received positive feedback, unless he give himself the feedback of course..
  2. It sure is a Colin Cooke purchase, thanks Paulus for that. Jamie
  3. Picked up this beautiful 1886 Gothic Florin, very happy indeed. The top end grades are out of my price range so I'm aiming to collect with GVF - EF+ Any opinion on grade of this piece would be welcomed with thanks? I'm new to this series as I would have usually collected pennies. Cheers Jamie
  4. Thanks VS, that's what Colin Cooke graded at (GVF or Better).. Aye I was surprised at the remaining lustre in hand to be honest, nice example for my budget.. Very happy indeed Cheers Jamie
  5. Would you guys kindly give me an opinion on grade on this Gothic Florin Cheers Jamie
  6. Absolutely delighted with this 1930 George V Small Head Penny, many thanks @Rob

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I haven't bought from him just queried a sale with him in the past.. He has some beauties for sale no doubt but pictures of screens is a little dodgy for me. Jamie

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Just had a run in with Torcoins - ebay recently, complete ignoramus.. Makes me wonder does he have possession of half the coins he sells as it's dodgy pictures of a screen.. No thanks mate

    Greetings all!

    Hi Jerry, that's a good plan of action. I'd need to purchase another tray to allow but it would be worth it. Ive them all in 2x2s in a lovely wooden box with slides for each 2x2 so no rubbing etc, also have silica gel packs in there too. Ill check those capsules out, I was eyeing up buying genuine airtites from USA, but the postage is the same cost of 25 capsules! Cheers Jamie

    Greetings all!

    Just a quick hello to everyone, been a long time lurker soaking up all the excellent advice and knowledge from the experts on this excellent forum! Ive been collecting for several years, started out a bullion guy but bored me to death, love history, and coins from the Victorian era just hit the spot for me. Jamie

    Picked this 1862 up for a mere £10, nice detail apart from the cleaning it's taken at some stage

    Greetings all!

    Thanks, Just doing the best I can within my budget congrats on the completion, it's no easy feat. Well a toothed/beaded 1860 mule would be nice, although the I've quite a few gaps remaining and major varieties needed also. Im aiming for lustre also, but my pockets ain't bottomless pits lol Can live and hope I suppose. Is it a general consensus that bronze shouldn't be stored open air in like a tray? I bought a lovely glass lidded tray, but now I'm in two minds to make to transfer. Jamie

    Greetings all!

    Also bought this 1889 recently from the same seller, probably upgrade it when funds allow ?

    Greetings all!

    Thanks Nordle, I think it's just standard 1865, might invest in microscope to pick up on the variations. Just using a loupe at the minute. Jamie

    Greetings all!

    Edge knocks may detract eye appeal for some people but I liked it, plus money burns a hole in my pocket!

    Greetings all!

    Thank you Nordle & 1949Threepence! Coudlnt ask for a warmer welcome! I seriously doubt I'll put up any compitition to you guys on here! Picked up this 1862 recently for £49 if I remember correctly.

    Greetings all!

    Hi Pete, Thank you for your welcome Im afraid so lol, bun head pennies in best grade I can afford really. Always concerned about Bronze storage tho, would love to have them stored open air so to speak in a glass lided tray but I've them in 2x2s which aren't that attractive to me. Ive read many posts on here, and the knowledge is unreal! Jamie
