    It being the first I've spotted for sale in 40+ years, and having been missed by the seller (though surely bloody obvious?), I'm very pleased to have acquired this C over L 1673 farthing. Although I have read fewer than ten are known I have seen two only, those being the Colin Cooke coin and Joe Lee's, both of which are inferior to this one which I'd grade as a solid good fine. There are no online records of any other examples, be that sales or in collections. I also checked through my old farthing catalogues and found no examples listed for sale, or even as a recognised variety, at any point throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Fifty quid. Bargain.

    I have added a new page to my halfpenny site called rare halfpennies and added your photos. Not being a halfpenny collector, I'm open to suggestions of what other coins to include on this page, which would be of interest to collectors.

    Apologies, I must've been awol the day the 1921 penny was declared a key date and therefore circulated specimens worth hundreds. I really must try to keep up.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/3394/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=1921+penny&_sop=16

    My tribute to marleybob We're scammin': I wanna scam it wid you. We're scammin', scammin', And I hope you like scammin', too. Ain't no rules, ain't no vow, we can do it anyhow: I'n'I will see you through, 'Cos everyday we pay the price with a little sacrifice, Scammin' till the jam is through. We're scammin' - To think that jammin' was a thing of the past; We're scammin', And I hope this jam is gonna last. No bullet can stop us now, we neither beg nor we won't bow; Neither can be bought nor sold. Repeat first verse ..........

    It would be nice if restoring and repairing of cabinets can be a bigger industry. Vintage cabinet can last a long time and it's sensible to restore them for the sake of the environment and cost.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255221659808?ViewItem=&item=255221659808 The BIN price is now £3k. If the "1933" "penny" is still free, what is the money actually paying for?

    I am losing my touch too: "1933" object will at some point be relisted: correct Shocking asking price of between £50K to £100k: wrong. It's for "free" this time Attract more than 50 "bids": wrong. Just 38 "bids" Bidders tend to have feedbacks of 1, 0, 179, 705, or private: correct. But bidder 705 (which by total coincidence is the feedback score of MB) wasn't used this time Then it will be relisted again with some excuse about the "bidder" wouldn't pay up: let's wait and see

    Looks undergraded at aEF. Mine is better, and was previously in a 66 slab ex Terner. Apologies for the faulty auto-focus.

    There are a lot of people out there who refuse to accept that these are modern copies. A few days ago I was asked by someone who wanted me to authenticate some American 1940s cent rarity. I recommended he use PCGS or NGC as I knew nothing about US coinage and US coinage was their bread and butter. He said he wanted a professional to do this as he had no confidence in them. He had paid his subs to both companies and submitted a load of coins as he had all the rarities - 1933 penny, 1954 penny...... and they hadn't authenticated a single one. So he reiterated he wanted a professional appraisal. I suggested he use PCGS or NGC as US coinage was their bread and butter. I could go on...........

    You're absolutely right Bruce, we've been following her exploits here for a while now. Three years and three 1933 pennies, each with a background story as unbelievable and entertaining as the free form word jazz syntax of her listings. Then, of course, there was the Gothic crown....

    Your date is on the left and the date of an example sold by London Coins Auction is on the right for comparison. If you balance the coin on a finger and gently tap on the edge with another coin, you can hear if it rings like silver. Copper coins and nickel coins sound very different to silver when tapped this way. (Try out on some scrap coins and you will see what I mean). Wear a glove if the coin still has residual lustre and you want to be extra careful. (Obviously, you won't want to do that with an UNC coin). The coin should be genuine if it is made of silver.

    "We ain't coin experts and I didn't even know about the penny we listed them in good faith..." "there is a book of old george v.. Elizabeth ii edward vi.. edward vii penny's it has no cover just the plastic inner holders and the coins there is 12 coins per page and 8 pages in total I can see a 1818kn [Sic] a 1930 a 1919h a 1912h and some 1921 key date pennies and others the book has duplicate dates but also some key date coins I think there is around 4 or 5.. key date 1921 pennies the listing also has some silver coins" She didn't know about the 1933 penny but knew about the KN and H pennies and key dates?!
