Coin aquisition of the week.......

Recommended Posts

That’d be about right…’Coin Acquisition of the Week’ lays dormant for nearly a week…post an acquisition…and within two hours it’s buried by the Penny boys! 😂😂😂

You were obviously first to spot it. I wonder what would have happened if the seller had made it an auction? Well done anyway.

£100 - absolute bargain for this Comber provenance, rarer marked 6d :)

I sold one just like it a few years ago.... alarmingly alike in fact.

Images would be very welcome if you can find them? This one weighs right, looks right, and also rings right :)

I'll have to hunt them out, I imagine it's just me memory being a bit iffy as I sold it a few years ago, one of a pair I found in a field :) The BM disclaimed them, have changed computers about 4 times if not more since though, so images are possibly lost. I don't doubt yours is correct!

EDIT to add an image and show just how iffy memory gets after 10 years or so lol :) Yours is nicer but I got more for mine :D

I have to say, though, if my coin, in the light of your upcoming evidence, had turned out to be fake (I double-checked mine after your initial post), I would’ve sold up and changed hobbies. One or two significant differences between the two examples, thank goodness :)

Not an easy find in collectable grade, they always seem to fly in auction, so really pleased with this bargain in a nice dark collectors’ tone!
