Nothing too exciting - a Cnut Pointed Helmet penny, but it was cheap enough and remarkably didn't duplicate designs as my other PH example has extra bits on the reverse.

Was that a 63? 62?

I assume it is the same coin as the slab posted by Dave further up the tread and so 63.

feel silly putting this up as the thread is full of gold and hammered silver, I like it though, few marks on the obverse but I like the cameo ;0) opinion welcome, only paid a few ££'s, postage cost more  than the coin lol

 My latest acquisition a high grade 1908 halfcrown from Colin Cooke which I got for a reasonable price as it's a hard date which I have been trying for a long time to get. All I need for the series is a 1905 and a better 1909. I've decided not to waste my money on low grade 1905s. You never know your luck when a high grade one may appear at a reasonable price.

Another example of the crude counterfeit 1841 penny. Now I have 3 different - this one have the same reverse as my 2nd copy. 3_samlet.thumb.jpg.b968b7e1332fb2a0256a355fee821f46.jpg

🤤Very much my meat, and a beautiful example. These silver medals were thrown to the crowd by Lord Cornwallis, as witnessed by Samuel Pepys who remarked that he was unable to lay hands on one.

A bit worn, but a lucky find. Contemporary counterfeit 1806 halfpenny. 1806_half-penny_counterfeit.thumb.jpg.1701d850c514b3dc671023268336e753.jpg

Continuing to pick out more farthing upgrades from the recent collection. I was particularly pleased with this one Obverse 3 and reverse Ba I believe.

A trip to Harrogate today produced this follis. Fausta, London, RIC 300. The two women at the end of the London coinage are usually grotty and hard to get in a reasonable grade. The obverse could be sharper, but the reverse is ok.

How was Harrogate Rob? I've been a few times when my sister lived there.

Nice surrounding but awful lighting springs to mind...Nice Fausta.
