Or E over R, wow, that is a nice catch there! I'm not a farthing nut but rather like this one; again, excellent spot there.

Mine is even better condition, and was a 1/10 of that price, and came with a certificate of authenticity 

signed by David Attenborough, in an oak presentation box made by Viscount Linley.

 

Your turn Pete.

Mine is a fabulous limited edition, personally designed by Fred Pistrucci, direct descendant of legendary Bernie Pistrucci - supplied in a platinum case for the first 5 orders received. Down payment of only £999 followed by 11 monthly payments of £799 and the deeds to your property.

Remember the Guardian Royal Exchange company? Their logo was an owl and their phone number ended 282820. Damn clever!

I remember the last e/r I had in my collection I picked up in brum it was in around fine-good fine grade and cost me £6 , I got it off a shouldhavegonetospecsavers dealer who never noticed it and I sold it a couple of years later for £32 on the bay it was very popular .

I think the coin pictured is worth at least £100 pos £125 or so , still a great buy.

Would grade as GVF with the ek getting a mention as well.

Poss you could grade VGVF though thats debateable
