What is that one in the middle of the first full row? The one that looks gold-ish? It looks to have a bend in it.

Once again I'm a bit behind sorting out my contemporary counterfeits aquistions. As usual about half of them are shillings...

They're pretty subtle, almost artistic in some way, doesn't detract IMO ;)

Add another note to yourself, if you can't take the critisism then don't post them. If you want everyone just to pet your new coin and say how beautiful it is then we would'nt be honest collectors now would we. If every coin that popped up here was said to be the most handsome then i just would'nt bother collecting. Its a subjective Hobby, we ALL have our opinions and that was mine.

Now pick the Teddy bear back up that you threw out of the pram

TBH, I think that's a bit of a sulk pies. I thought your penny was superb, and you only got one voice of criticism.

If I only kept my "perfect" coins, my collection would be reduced by 95%

collect for fun, and what you can afford :)

I liked your penny as well. In my own collection is a bronzed proof farthing from the late Colin Cooke's collection which has traces of a fingerprint on the obverse. It is still one of my favorites. While condition has its place it can be taken to the extreme -- just, look at what a mess the Americans (and I'm one of them) have made with their grading and valuation in pursuit of 'perfection..

I really don't See the need for a sulk. Your coin was nice but just as a hole in a coin will put People off, so will fingerprints and Handling marks. My apologies that i critisised it, i'm assuming you were'nt prepared for that because it was asthetically pleasing to you, but as i said, if you just want "ooooh pretty coin" comments then heed your own advice and don't Post them.

We're all here to be subjective so we can learn and i certainly won't and don't stoke egos, i'll say it as i see it and give MY opinion. I've even had wee run-ins with Peck over coins and grading, we had a bitch and it was done, so please grow a set and don't always believe you've bought perfection because it does'nt exist.

I was looking and thinking 'fingerprints'?? Took me a while to notice so clearly it didn't detract for me either.
