    Could be if I drank gin but I'm strictly a beer man and it's ideally shaded for a long cold drink in the evening.😎

    Emerging from the jungle. The rain has made it go crazy but nice and shaded in the current weather pattern.

    My favourite Canna: 'Shenandoah'. Queen Victoria's favourite as well. Great dark leaves, but you can _never_ capture with a camera just how unusual and captivating the pink hue is- nothing else like it. A bugger to grow- needs heat- you can lose one to a cold spell at the drop of a hat.

    You can see here from the official RM pamphlet that the silver set case cost almost as much as the coins and cabinets were all the vogue for storage - so yes they are very rare

    I'm posting the following images for Gary: Obv 7 Rev C#

    The shield rim IS indeed slightly recessed, like the original 1860 rev C that it appears to be based on. As specimens wear of course, that becomes a flatter part of the coin, so not a reliable definer. Much better is the lighthouse itself, plus the fact that the PE of PENNY are much closer to the linear circle than on the normal 1873 reverse.
