Record your lost or stolen coins here.

Recommended Posts

I have started this thread to allow forum members to record, with photos, coins that have gone missing, perhaps lost or stolen in the post, perhaps pilfered at a meeting or from the house, with the intention of alerting fellow collectors and possibly facilitating recovery should the lost coin re-surface in a future auction or sale list. The eventual recovery of a coin could also feature.

The first coin is an 1858 small date large rose penny, purchased as a 'Buy it Now' from Northern Ireland on August 25th. Sadly this is now some two weeks overdue, and likely lost in transit by Royal Mail, though I still retain hopes that it may arrive or be returned to sender. Sellers pictures.

Uggh, I hate thinking about such but mercifully only one:

 

1863 GEF Florin (ex- Mark Rasmussen list 2006 #10, item 270).  Raw, not slabbed.

This coin is of prohibitive rarity IMO, and is possibly worth multiples of purchase price. My ex-wife took it with her when she left and was not returned on divorce even though stipulated in decree. As I rather love currency Vicky, that one did hit me. I have a Record Proof, but would rather have the currency version. Photo in next post

As originally posted to kick off this theme, my 1862 over 1 was sent on 3rd August 2020 to Scotland but never arrived. Tracking shows it still in the system but who knows where.

Those pictures are a bit dark Jerry. Would you like me to brighten them and repost?

Not a loss or theft, but a report of bad practice by Royal Mail - and this time I was in, ready and waiting for an 1843 no colon after reg penny due to arrive by next day tracked delivery by 1pm today.

At about 12:34 I heard the letter box, rushed out, and there it was. NO KNOCK ON THE DOOR. 

I opened the front door to ask the guy why he hadn't knocked, but he'd already disappeared back into his van and was driving off, evidently not doing his round on foot. God knows how he managed to be that quick getting away.

Just a heads up to be aware.

Not sure about lost, but the trail's suddenly gone cold on a coin bought from the States.

Should I be getting worried, or is it just too soon?

I really wouldn’t be worrying about that yet, Mike, give it another week or two. It’ll be sitting in a great pile with two men at the bottom deciding whether to apply duty. The wait here is often longer than the transfer from the USA origin address.

But if it doesn’t appear by the end of the month, post pics. Is it worth making this post sticky? It may well resurface from time to time.

Thanks Jerry. I was wondering whether it might have been captured for customs duty.

@TomGoodheart great idea of Jerry's to have this thread made a sticky. It's going to be used many times. As a moderator do you agree?

What's a sticky post, please ?

Meaning pinned, so that it will appear ahead of the other treads in the group.
