    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Made under the rule of Elizabeth the second and not Victoria as well
  3. Last week
  4. I am useless on a computer but this is by far the easiest one i have used. If you want to crop the picture first ,click crop ,edit size and download. If you just want to just share the picture just click on re size image and type in 800 in the very left hand box ,then download. Only takes seconds once you have done the first couple. https://imageresizer.com/
  5. 3 1/2 years too early....! It's weird- Trump makes Reagan look competent, and Biden makes Reagan look young! Who'd have thought......?
  6. Credit where it's due. No reply to the emails, but the last two catalogues appeared in the post today. If anyone needs either I can reciprocate.
  7. Thanks Alan. Just spotted your moniker. Nice one.😁
  8. Ah, yes. What I have been trying to find out is more about the 1838 no WW shilling so that answered by question. I did get several coins from that list and now can not really find more....
  9. Hi Eric The April 2003 contains ‘A Collection of Victorian Young Head and Gothic Bust Milled Silver Coinage’ In this are two 1838 shillings. MS4562 and MS4563, respectively light tone UNC (£250) and light scratch on neck, toned a pleasing EF (£125). In the write up both state ‘w.w. raised on truncation’. Hope this helps Alan
  10. OK, do you mind checking to see which one had the Vicky shillings? I have recorded that I bought in March but that might have been a "pre" list - to which I used to get thanks to some insider connections (alas no longer). I am trying to research up a couple of things and greatly appreciate your help. I think but will have to check as I think Bull 6th Edition may have referred in the index section to 3/03 but even that would have to double check....
  11. I've not tried this but would it work on android please?
  12. Open IrfanView, should have black screen. Drag picture onto screen Click on ‘File’ in top left bar In the dropdown menu, click ‘Save as…’ Two boxes appear In box ‘left’ I change File name, so as not to replace the original. Indicate where to save file in ‘Recent folders’ dropdown menu In box ‘right’ tick ‘Set file size’ Put in 499 Press save in left box Mine turned out as 490KB file size Hope this works for you Alan (Using Windows 11)
  13. There was not a March 2003. I have February and April Alan
  14. I have downloaded the program but can't work out how to get picture size to 499Kb. Please guide step by step procedure. I tried setting resize to 0.499Mb but picture reduces to 57Kb.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Copper you say... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/186569805502?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=uWa-uYeVShi&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=skmjbKlTSK-&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  16. Thanks Steve and Jerry IrfanView looks a excellent program, I have just downloaded the 64-Bit and it works fine. Cuts file size to 499KB very easily. If anyone is interested this is a good review of its features. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJIBaz1FTkE Alan
  17. It really depends on the spec of your computer, try the lower version first I would suggest, it’ll be more than powerful enough. Jerry
  18. OK I used to get SNC and even purchased some from this list. Has it and lost it. might someone be good enough to copy and email the Victorian shilling “for sale” section to me? Appreciated if possible.
  19. Clicking on the link gives several options to download - which do you recommend ?
  20. I too have used Irfanview for years. Does what it says on the tin. Jerry
  21. I have used Irfanview for many years; it's a great little package for basic image viewing and manipulation - and it's free with no nasty ads or spyware attached. I always set it as the default viewer for jpg files on my computers and any I setup for friends and family. Download it here: https://www.irfanview.com/ Irfanview offers many ways to change the size and resolution of a file (Image -> Resize/Resample image), but for reducing a file to a set size simply open a file, click on File->Save as, tick set file size on the small JPEG/GIF save options box and enter the desired file size in kB. Simples. Steve.
  22. Hi Blake Thanks for your reply, yes that does work. I normally send pictures as an attatchment to the email so I don't get that option. I will in future use that method. Many thanks Alan
  23. Interesting! It's a make of jeep apparently - I didn't know that!
  24. Spotted this sign at auction. Can't believe they ever got away with this!
  25. Hi Alan Email the picture to yourself, choosing what size you want, and use that. That's all I do. Always works. Blake
