Hazard a guess as to price reached?  I would have to guess that despite the results of the 1952 penny that this may go 200k??

Hopefully not - there's at least half a dozen of these.

No inside knowledge it’s advertised in their catalogue I got this morning for their Isladulcie Collection of Hammered Gold Coins.. 

There was a time when I might have had a punt in it but not now !

I got the catalogue yesterday, Spink are always sending me catalogues that are nothing to do with my area. Still, a nice looking catalogue, well put together. It's a shame there's no biographical info about the vendor (hello Isla?!) which there usually is for single vendor catalogues. Mostly bought 2005-2008 so not that old a collection.

Interesting historical details given for many coins and the contemporary background, makes the catalogue much more interesting to peruse. Only the odd blunder (eg …. the mint "was cited at the Tower of London", I think they meant "sited"!

It's example 1 of 8 on my rare penny site.

I mean it's the only specific coin type that's an Ed VIII penny. Whereas even I have got some George VI pennies (yes, more than one!).

Sorry, I wasn't correcting/commenting on your statement - merely pointing out where people could get a better view.

No, my apologies, I'm not known as paranoid Pete for nothing!

Anyway, it doesn't look like Mark Rasmussen's (he's monopolising these rare pennies!) from his List 9 (£35,000)

Wow, I've just checked out your website for the Edward VIII's - fantastic. The coin is No. 1, provenance unknown. Hopefully Spink will give more details when the catalogue is published.

Tut tut, what next, much "sort" after coin? :ph34r:

I don't think they will, I know the chap who is selling it and he is a very private individual. I am virtually certain it is the Mark Rasmussen one because you will also see the 1808 penny is for sale in that collection also in September.

I'm sure the the 37 Edward VIII and 1808 would do well at Spink , although peronsally if they were mine I would get them slabbed and put them into Heritage....I feel that they would do better in the US with the Investor / Collector type out there ...just my opinion.

Mark Rasmussen had the 1808 for sale for £130,000.

Before that  it was in Hopetown House Spink Auction 68 (1989) where it went for £8,600 hammer, a big drop from its previous appearance in Spink Numismatic Circular September 1985, where it was on offer for £15,000.

It was described as dark toned in the 1985 SNC, so it had presumably  by then lost it's "red mint state" appearance referred to by Peck.

I'd love the opportunity to stick that in an electron microscope.
