    Harold II penny ID

    Great advice. I think i will start doing that. It shouldn't be to difficult with some of them but i might need to research some of the more rarer mints. I might get some leads off the PAS website while the FWC is down. I had noticed doubling on some letters on coins i own or have handled but did not realise what the reason was behind that , i assumed it was a die sinkers error. That's an eye opener for me that. Thank you. Stu.

    Cheers Rob That's got to be it. I can usually read the mint and moneyers well on the Short cross stuff and Long cross issues and further on upto modern but i struggle with the Anglo Saxon & Norman stuff. I wish there was a decent guide listing all the mint signatures / abbreviations. The Fitzwilliam Corpus is my usual go to but it's not been offline for some time now. Stu.

    Thinks its + WULFWARD ON LND The little wedge is likely the tail of a letter L. The last letter bleeds into the cross slightly but it's a D i think.

    Thanks Rob I saw Wulfward when i was looking through my J.J North copy of English hammered coinage. I wonder if the three III could be AN for Canterbury but missing the C which would of been where the chip is. It's a shame the Fitzwilliam Corpus is down as i bet there'd be a die match on there for it.

    Anyone figure the moneyer & mint on this one? WULF something? Maybe Wulfraed / Wulfred ?

    Rhuddlan? Er, No It's Not

    Yeah don't bother. Exercise in futility i feel. With any luck the buyer will return it under "item not as described" once they realise it's not Rhuddlan.

    Rhuddlan? Er, No It's Not

    Yes 8c Nichole Canterbury. Saw it a few days ago. Messaged the seller and told him what it was but got no reply. Somebody else i know also messaged them telling them it was not Rhuddlan and that it was Henry III 8c Canterbury. Can only assume they are trying to get more money for it than its actually worth.
  8. Leave them a unhappy review on Trustpilot and you'll get a phone call tommorow offering an exchange or refund.

    Color Flying Scotsman £2 coin

    I think i will. There seems to be a few of these like its a mass production error. I've spotted another on eBay similar to mine and another were the rear of the train is elevated and the nose wheels are low on the rail. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/385539173545 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/404175330733 It's whether I'll get a correct replacement or not though as it's a limited edition.

    Seems i am not alone. Another one..Odd Flying Scotsman £2
  11. Got this today. Not sure what to make of it. The quality is awful and it doesn't live up to what was displayed on the RM website. The train looks derailed and is not level with the track and there is some doubling at the rear of the engine were the train is not seated correctly with the outline.

    Evasion and Contemporary Counterfeits

    It's gone through the bit with the mint signature "EBOR" which is short for EBORACI (York)

    Evasion and Contemporary Counterfeits

    My pierced one. Not sure if it's been pierced for the 1696 recoinage or if it was a touch piece. Always intrigued me.

    Too Good to be True (eBay)?

    Nothing odd jumps out about it. Looks genuine to me. Class IVa with the extra I after the R of Rex. Sellers got feedback for a few sold Norman coins one registered with PAS. Stu.
  15. Think you're right. Looks like GILDEPINE ON C I guess if spacing was an issue they would lose the A after the C. Stu.
