    What hump?
  3. Top four are boxed . 2 green , 2 burgundy .Last one is from a proof set .I had a couple of dozen , but kept 4 because of the different box types .Matchbox type and lift off lid ,in each colour .Looks like verd on the proof set one , but it must be my photographic skills as it isn't visible on the coin itself .
  4. I have dug my four boxed ones out .Looking at the dragons wing webbing alone .One has all the webbing .one is missing a part of a section , one is missing a full section and the other is missing 2 sections .I will stick pics up when I get a chance .
  5. I would expect more from a grading service... regardless as to which side of the pond they so happen to be located. Look at the details LCGS provided and those images I provided in this thread and how that difference was identified in pictures I provided. And in all fairness, they are not my pictures... but at least I found and provided pictures that clearly illustrate reverse variations that should have been recognized decades ago. But that really seems shallow and short sided as this 1951 Crown has been reduced to the who cares category instead of honoring the interest and tradition in issuing a Crown sized coin not to mention a Monarch that deserves attention and appreciation for the situation he inherited and did not seek or ask for. Sad...

    Some truths: People who want power will act like people who want power . People who don't realise this are always amazed when it happens. All governments keep certain sections of society under-educated and under paid. This stops them playing up, and makes them take jobs that over-paid and over-educated people wouldn't do. All amateur pundits have no power at all after the event. Every time someone moans to me about Brexit, I ask them what they did to stop it- holding meetings, writing letters, organising petitions etc., and none of them did. THEY ALL HOPED SOMEONE ELSE WOULD DO IT. We are all like a group of football fans in a pub saying that "We should never have sold that player'"etc.... WE? WE? Do they think their views have been considered? Do they think they are on the Board? Madness- 'their' football team just takes their season ticket money. That's all. Meanwhile, people like the Chinese sit back and laugh as they ignore all rules whilst claiming they follow them, and are so happy that we are fighting amongst themselves so therefore cannot be a credible opposition to anything they do. Like Labour is at the moment. "Divide and Rule', anyone? Every country gets the Government it deserves. The saddest thing is this acrimony after starting a thread about someone who rose above all this somewhat....:-(

    Why does the subject of politics make people think that they can behave like Trolls ?

    It's not just Labour who throw names at the PM. Those who know him well say there's a quite nasty, very egocentric, often incompetent person behind the superficial eccentric bluster. I said "often" duped, and I'm talking mainly about England, and the northerners who've been ripped off for decades by all parties. Not the "public at large" - please, read my posts properly before replying. The government have made terrible and costly mistakes during the pandemic: late to the first lockdown despite clear warnings from Italy; some sleazy double dealing over PPE contracts; and late to the second lockdown, especially the fiasco about Xmas. "What Labour lack is a clear idea of a constructive way forward. Like some original ideas which capture the public imagination. Not to mention a charm offensive to net floating voters." I agree 100% "All Labour's (and the MSM's) efforts to smear the government with the low level stuff about Boris's flat etc, fell on deaf ears because the vast majority are just not interested." Yes, and that's the problem. And has been all along, long before the Big Red Bus with its lies. People just don't see through him, or else they do, and still forgive him because of his (carefully managed) scruffy hair, 'hail fellow well met' manner. He's really a piece of work, but does 'dupe' so many people.

    A cannon ball - no, completely missed it. Wonder if someone contacted the seller privately to make an offer.
  15. Anybody here spot this? Sadly pulled after only a day, a reasonable example. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224454520580?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 Jerry

    Damn! I like enigmatic mysteries!!!!
  17. Wow, way too many gold and bullion recent issues. I just don't get the absolute madness over the rehashed Three Graces and Una. Would hate to be trapped into them for big money. Where are the numismatic issues? I saw precious little of currency Vicky silver of quality and actually "nada para me".
  18. Pleased with this 1829 Farthing as an upgrade:
  19. Spotted a couple of coins i fancy , ta.
  20. And I'm not convinced about the 1863 over 1.
  21. Thanks. Lot 2021, an 1858 large rose penny, is not a small date.

    This phenomena begins with a circular ring of rust at the surface of a steel die formed due to corrosion at the edge of a tiny circular water droplet on the die. As this progresses it results in a circular ‘dot’ of rust on the surface of the die, which is pulverized and lost as the die is used in the coining press leaving a round pit. This shows up on the coin as a circular raised dot. The process has been documented in an article by Paul M. Holland in the Journal of the Numismatic Association of Australia, volume 27, 2016, pages 1-6.

    An enigmatic mystery......

    There must be some mechanical/metallurgical reason as to why the dots stay circular, but I have no idea what that is....

    My dentist collects pennies. I'll ask him. (He'll probably use Fuji 9.)
