You'll do well on eBay ;-)

If your coin's as good as the one you've posted, I'll buy it! I rather suspect it isn't!

Good luck with the collecting, you'll never come to the end of it!

You can either uses something like MS Paint to crop and reduce an image to size or use a hosting site like Flikr or Photobucket and when your image is uploaded there, you just pop a link to it in your post as you did with the library pic.

The free membership option of PhotoBucket that I use also imposes file size restrictions but that is a somewhat more useful < 1MB.

Not sure about this side, I forgot what size I made the last one here goes anyway. I dont know what I want I am open to offers, I only started a couple of weeks ago and I collect shillings this was in a pail of coins I got for the shillgs contained in it. I would not be offended at any offer. Dont think this is a good pic.

What you have is a Charles I (Everson Type 2) Maltravers farthing (Everson ref 132a). Privy mark - large lis both sides - 1634-1636.

Cleaning is not such an issue with these anyway unlike many other coins, because a majority of them find there way from the Thames, and can even often be Thames washed. Obviously don't go scrubbing it :P and a natural patina is still preferred, but it is not as big an issue with Charles I and James I tokens.

Thanks Colin G. I had seen a comment re cleaning/polishing and thouht it best not to do so. I think on here I was seeing folks looking for certain year pennies some of which I have but they are dirty but I still would not touch them. i appreciate the information, it all adds to the knowlwedge base.

What about a good old-fashioned swap...online, for fun? If you're new to it all, we could have a forum-guided look at a couple of my old shillings, what do you reckon?

If you can wait until Sunday evening, I'll post up a couple of options for you to ponder on, maybe the forum chaps and lady could throw in there twelve- penneth worth and help you out?

Fancy it?

If you only started a couple of weeks ago I'd be tempted to hang on to it. It's actually quite a nice example and suggest you will find worse before you find better. The reverse looks a bit weak but that may be due to the picture quality, the obverse however looks good - well struck and centred with no weak bits, bends, chips, digs or scrapes. Not bad for Carolean copper which can appear in fairly dire condition if dug.

OK, great stuff, I'll start a new thread on Sunday evening and post up pictures of a few shillings, and see what you think.

The last thing I ever swapped was a pannini football card around 1978 or 79 :-)

Sorry coinery, old age does not visit alone, out of interest what kind of date/s were you thinking, just to save you going to the bother if I have them. Cheers.

did something new happen to coin making in the 1600's?

my 1674 Farthing looks quite more ununique

Farthings from 1672 were milled copper.(some Cornish tin for a few dates after 1675 to 1693)

The one being dicussed here is an earlier hammered version.

Have a look here and start learning. :)
