  1. Yes that was my thought too, the curls at the back of Victoria's hair are slightly different too but I think that's because the pinches piece isn't fully struck up Thank you Paul 👍🏻
  2. A new farthing token arrived today, I would welcome thoughts/ideas on the portrait (right facing for Victoria) and if members agree with me that it's the same die used as the unofficial farthing of G.Browne. Also thoughts on the reverse, is it St Andrew? Thank you all
  3. Well done! I did have a bid on it but was nowhere near, wrong time of the month for me. It's one from the DNW sale 3rd of Oct, I'm keeping an eye out for some of the others in that group
  4. I don't have any (identified) Kettle pieces....what are the reverse designs?
  5. The token on the right is the Ingram piece, the main difference is the hair curls on the top of the head
  6. My other examples are by the die sinker T.W. Ingram, I'll put a picture up tomorrow of this one and an Ingram piece side by side for comparison
  7. It's 22mm diameter so as good as, like you say the spade Guinea types are very inaccurate but this one (like my others) is about the thickness of a shilling too. I've not seen this design before and need to do some research, the portrait of the king isn't an exact match to my others but is very, very close so possibly a different maker
  8. Also bought this George 4th gaming token, I have about a half dozen in this style now but haven't seen this design before
  9. A lovely new addition, D&H280, the obverse shows some gorgeous tones which I've managed to capture some of in the picture. Carbon spot on the reverse but I can live with that
  10. Unknown ticket, the seller could shed no light on it. Any thoughts appreciated
  11. Yes afraid so! I did bid on two other lots (675 & 677) of the Birmingham Kempsons but as you said they went higher than I would pay and out of the 16 coins I only needed 3 so would have been a large out lay and a lot to sell on. Of the group I won I have just one duplicate so will sell that on at some point. They are really nice, couple of marks on one but I'm really pleased
  12. New addition from the DNW auction of the 3rd.....one from a group of eight
  13. When I have five minutes next week I'll PM you a couple of pictures of duplicates I have which might be of interest to you
  14. A very nice example, much better than mine. Well done. I've put my 'unofficials' on the back burner at the moment choosing to concentrate on the 18th century ½ pennies, particularly the Kempson tokens
  15. I've not got an example of this one yet and not seen any. A nice token, well done
  16. I have sent a picture of this one and one other to them but in their reply they said there was no plans at present to issue a revised catalogue
  17. An example of W5062 Thomson hatters. I have two or three others where withers don't have a picture
  18. I do have a couple, will find them out and add some pics later
  19. Top W2680, this is one of my favourites. Simple design but tells you all you need to know. Bottom W2190. Only listed as R but this is the only example I've ever seen
  20. Assuming again I'd of thought they'd all of been gilded and you bought and had stamped however many you wanted
  21. A couple of my unofficial farthings, having an issue with sizing as only got my phone for pics at the moment. The rather worn example is W4640, listed as RRR with no picture while the other is a more pristine example of W4959b
