1804 BoE Dollar upgrade 1804_boe_dollar_03_03_sellers_phillip_hu

Love these, its a pity they aren't more popular considering their history, you can see the undetype to the left of the 1 in the date on the REV here Paul, doubt you'll need an upgrade on this one, lovely coin

Just bought this 1913 Half Sov with what looks like (to me anyway) a 3 over 8, i can see a faint line in the middle gap of the 3, not in hand yet, so just a guess right now.

 

Any opinions or am i seeing things?

Definitely looks like 3 over something, either 8 or back to front 3.

Hope it’s more exciting than what might also be a die chip/flake. Good spot regardless - you must have hella vision clarity.

Had the urge to buy something and so even a George V florin would do.

A nice 1885 halfcrown  I picked up to fill a gap.The price was ok from Colonial Coins and Medals Brisbane. It has to be said it looks a lot better in hand than the scan included.

Funnily enough I received an email today about 1 that was newly listed on a dealers website for €365 I looked and passed it by, but when I saw this one (better graded imo) for €285 delivered I didn’t hesitate.

Oh, I think I know who’s Doing the manipulation, someone who’s desperately trying to be famous and a coin influencer on YouTube, I call him the bullion oracle.
