A few odds and sods of late. I picked this up in DNW a couple days ago.

Charles I Tower 6d 3/3a mule, the obverse of which ticks the bell over portcullis mark box. It appears to use an old half unite obverse die that has been recycled, as there is a clear trace of an X at the mark of value.

That's a very nice 1734 - one of the trickier dates too. 

Thanks Poka, I'm very pleased with it!

I'll add these pictures to my website, but as a normal F24 rather than missing leaf - still a rarity, though.

Awaiting arrival, so sellers pics. Listed as lead but could be pewter maybe?  A date of 16??. Anyone know what it is please? Mr Google not being to helpful today.

I think we are going to need sharper pictures than those. Could you spin the top one so it is the right way up too?

So the sellers pics are bad, you don't know what metal it is and the date is tbc.

Taking a bit of a chance there then. - And also if it's for ID please start a thread of y9our own, :)

That's a really nice strike.. Here's mine which shows weakness on the hair by the Queen's forehead and looks to be of a lower relief. I 've had it for a long time and I think it cost about $AU 120 and I laybyed it and paid it off at $10/week. Perhaps it would present better by re photographing it instead of a flatbed scanner scan.

I was fortunate enought to pick up the residue of a 1902 13 coin specimen set, Matt proof, the other day. Only 5 coins remained - Crown down to sixpence. (The Gold and the Maundy were long gone.) Of the remainder, the best 3 were the Crown, Halfcrown and Florin, so here they are. (The box is good too and even scarcer than the 11 coin version!)

 @Paddy,  You got a nice couple of coins there. I don't normally look away from Vickie but these are really nice.
