    3 1/2 years too early....! It's weird- Trump makes Reagan look competent, and Biden makes Reagan look young! Who'd have thought......?

    ... and finally the 1863 Shilling - substantial upgrade for me, but not the 1863/1 mentioned above:

    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.

    Tonight, I sorted my coins according to the monarch's resemblance to Julie Goodyear. One of my favourite Dylan tracks, those lyrics just leave you guessing. Seen him six times but he never performed this song, I don't think he has ever played it live despite trying over 40 versions and never being happy with it. Lou Reed tried to do it but failed IMO. Not recommended to find yourself with an obscured view of the stage. I remember one concert where for an hour and a half all I saw was the neck of Dylan's guitar bobbing back and forth from behind an ornate stanchion, 'not somebody to move around with much' 🙂

    Well spotted! A great buy for anyone into the variations. I have just checked back and you are correct - Irish and Scottish shields switched across. I don't go looking for that sort of thing, so probably miss some bargains. I am content with a decent example of each date.

    TBH, I think many of the issues with this coin are in the planchet and are pre-strike, and surfaces such as the fields are quite nice actually. Not here to defend the price and also that they frequently seem a bit more than simply "subjective" in their grading.

    With this one I think NGC could have been a bit more generous.

    Fine stuff - if almost the very definition of a Vertigo band!

    Another band newly discovered in amongst a huge collection of CDs I bought late last year - May Blitz. Medium rock with some driving rhythms. This is my favourite track so far:

    I found this one, part of a "Best of Sea Life" album, and the title seemed appropriate. Music is good too - light rock:
