    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I've reported it too, if we keep bombarding eBay they might do something
  3. At least the one your really wanted is ok, you can always upgrade the others
  4. There's a very good altered '1933' penny on the bay at the moment, it's the only one I'll ever be able to afford! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BRITAIN-GEORGE-V-1933-PENNY-PRO-ALTERATION-TOOLED-/201995428787?hash=item2f07dda3b3:g:UjMAAOSwY~VZdIq8
  5. Is that the only bad one out of the set?
  6. I'm trying to identify the planchet which this penny has been minted on so I can add one to my collection for reference. Weight is 2.6 grams 20mm diameter brass and non magnetic
  7. Thank you to all who made suggestions, it is a Hong Kong 20 cent
  8. Thank you, using Robs sugestion I'll try those countries first
  9. 1983. ok I'll give it a go Rob, will let you know if I have any luck!
  10. I realise this is a long shot with the name 'St Johns' being so common but I bought this at a local flea fair hoping it was an unofficial farthing. It's not in the catalogue as one but is the same size etc and it now has me intrigued, any suggestions welcome. Blank reverse apart from a beaded border

    'st johns' token -- Unofficial Farthing??

    I did wonder that but all the ones I've seen are larger and of white metal

    There's a very similar design on a modern Eastern Caribbean coin as the obverse of the 'two shilling' but I can't recall the denomination at the moment

    Help needed with unknown coin/token

    Well that was simple! Thank you very much Ian, I was obviously looking in the wrong place
  16. I would welcome any thoughts or suggestions on what this might be, £5 coin size and weight, plain edge. I emailed the RM but they wasn't very helpful and just said it's out of a proof set. The spiral of letters and numbers appear to have been engraved prior to striking

    Here's the first one, not the best of pictures but I'll have a play around with the others and see if I can do better!

    Hello, forgive the late reply but I've only just joined. If your interested I can add some pictures of some Victorian model coins, not just the penny and half penny by Moore. Just let me know Will
