Still, it is reduced from £100 to £60 and is 'beautiful' and 'rare'.  (only 121 million minted, so if every man, woman and child in the UK is sitting on one there are only 55 million left for our American, Australian and Chinese friends).

It does just get worse:
 
1965 Great Britain UK One 1 Penny PCGS Genuine (Cleaned) UNC Detail 
 
LOOK AT THIS BEAUTIFUL COIN.....IT IS A HIGH GRADE And Nice Color For The Year!!.....CERTAINLY A COLLECTIBLE COIN !
YOU WILL RARELY.....EVER.....FIND A COIN TONED THIS WAY.........SO NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO 'BUY IT NOW' !!
 
THIS COIN IS ONE OF THE MOST DESIRABLE BECAUSE OF THE TONING...... GET YOURS TODAY.......BUY IT NOW !!
 
EVERY COLLECTOR LOVES RARE COINS.....AND EVERY COLLECTOR LOVES BEAUTIFUL COINS.
THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET ONE OF THE MOST 'DESIRABLE' COINS OF ALL TIME...AND IT'S YOURS FOR THE TAKING
 
JUST LOOK AT THE FINISH ON THIS COIN !!  YOU GET THIS ONE FOR YOUR COLLECTION..
 
If you insist on the highest quality coin and colors for your collection, this hand selected piece is for you. An exceptional coin in every way, as nice as the day it was minted.

This is the way they are supposed to look.

A wonderful coin for the toned coin collector and certain to please the fussiest buyer.

It's wrong in just about every way possible. Beautiful - not. Nice color for the year - I prefer the green ones they made in 1964. Collectible coin - not. Desirable - not. The way they are supposed to look - not. Never met a toned coin collector - presumably means tanned? Why does he studiously avoid the warning on the label and make statements to the contrary?

Only true bits are every collector loves beautiful coins, and to some extent, loves rare coins.

Some of his other offerings appear to exhibit artificial toning and, coincidentally, are unslabbed.

Yes, in the second picture, but in the first picture with Amanda Barrie and the asp, it's Christine Rogers.

Yes, I'm very familiar with Sylvia Sims (I'll rephrase that...) - I meant the asp picture.

I think Blakeyboy has earned the cigar with Christine Rodgers. There are several pictures of her on imdb.
