Nice when you find it before you sell it :)

As with nearly all the coins I have sold for a decent return they were all in lots originally purchased for something else and a lot less valuable. Whilst it is true to some degree most mixed lots have been trawled though but many hands and filtered down to basic scap coins . Not everyone has knowledge of everything . Most collectors are niche collectors so zone in on that area and along with know varieties of famous coin types. So most of the mixed lots are for the most part excluded esp the more diverse countries where the native language is alien to the collector or a minefield even to find the correct dates or even country sometimes. As I am not a niche collector or a collector I am the in betweener that will look just a little longer or research areas that are less common and weed out the coin that should be in a worthy collection and not rotting away in a rusty tin for eternity. Most of the time it is a fruitless persuit but every now and then something will pop up and will be worth all the searches that came before it. "Thar's treasure in them thar hills" (or mixed lots) :)

Couldn't agree more. 3 years ago or so, I had a call from a person who did house clearances asking if I bought scrap coins. Obviously the answer was yes, but the 135kg of scrap metal took a lot of sorting, to the point where I still have 30 or 40kg left. I found 7 coins that were worth as much as I paid, leaving me with the problem of what to do with the other 25000. The scrap man was rubbing his hands. :)

I don’t normally look at the ‘Non British’ section, but in view of recent trends I am going to have to change that policy.

Nice coin.

Just posting a few pics of something I would like to collect the complete series of Irish Modern coinage from 1928-1968. Whilst I know it will be for some of the coins virtually impossible to rise to the premiums they hold. I dare say I could make a dent in most of the different denominations. Just thrown a book of some of what I have hidden away for that rainy day.Part of the cupro range. Most are in very high grades close to unc and some are BU. The odd filler to be replaced later but a handful if that. I hope you like them. Again apologies for poor pic quality. :)
