Nice find. Seven years in Botany Bay for sealing one of those if they didn't hang you first.

This Sir, is coin Porn! :)

It's pretty isn't it! I should have stated, it's a 1858/6 halfpenny, although I'm damned if I can see traces of the 6!

You can see a trace of the left side vertical section filling the 8 indent.

Very nice!

I was going to bid on a token because it was from Glasgow (my home town) and had the Glasgow coat of arms on one side. But the bidding on it got a bit silly and it went for more than the top estimate.

This is where I was born and raised and still reside . Smashing Token real classy. :) Actually that is too spooky. I was born in Oldchurch hospital as it was then in Romford. I was raised in ardleigh green road in hornchurch. And currently reside On the top of Noak hill which is havering and comes under havering Atte Bower. How unreal is that . Must remember to do the lottery the signs are showing lols:lol:

This is currently my only Glasgow Conder token, featuring  a river god reclining on an urn, inscribed CLYDE, from which water is issuing  1791_hp_lanarkshire_glasgow_dh_2_ref_016

The one I was going to bid on had the same obverse but had Britannia on the reverse. It was a nice coin/token.

I have one struck from different dies. The edge reads: Cambridge, Bedford and Huntingdon . x . x

A bit of residual lustre too.

A few recent additions. Much better in hand as I am struggling with my photos at the moment. 1817 Shilling with an 1825 and 1890 Sixpence. Mainly purchased as the grades were not bad, 2 filled gaps and I like the toning....

Another addition to my Edward VII Sixpences. I am finding it hard to find really good examples of Edward VII sixpences. Your thoughts on the grade please would help. I have grades this as NEF.

If you'd said a straight EF I wouldn't argue. I'd be happy with it. :)

Looks like a decent EF to me.

Thanks, everyone for your opinions. I am going to stick with NEF, I would rather undergrade than overgrade. It certainly shows that everyone grades in different ways. I am sure you would grade differently if you had it in hand to look at. It looks far better than my photo shows here. Still happy to get it as they are quite hard to find in a decent grade. I am now on the hunt to find a 1906 and 1902 to complete Edward VII run of sixpences.

The hair is quite visible and the ear well defined both of which can be problematic on EVII sixpences. I'm a bit concerned about what appears to be a couple of scratches but, overall, a nice sixpence. I would go with EF.
