    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Cleaned or not?

    This morning there were three good grade sixpences for sale on the WAG auction site. I didn't bid on them but noticed that all three (Geo. IV) exhibited similar spotty toning. What causes this? Have they at some time been cleaned?

    It could be a 'She' Rob This offering from the same seller made me titter https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/pretty-little-thing-off-shoulder-red-dress-size-10-but-stretches-to-12-and-14/333710394247?hash=item4db2b08387:g:fmwAAOSwmyBfU0Ft I'm sure it would stretch to a 16 or an 18 too if you put your mind to it.

    Just had a little bit of fun: - start at the bottom ME You too my friend, all the best. frli_9876 Honestly, i have no idea what your talking about lmao. But if he rings i’ll be sure to answer. have a nice day. ME I've notified the Vatican. If the Pope rings don't hang up, it's not a scam frli_9876 Honestly this is a miracle. My father works with scrap cars and brings back a ton of old coins. I was looking through them out of curiosity and began to google some of them and boom, I discovered a rare coin had teleported itself to my sofa. ME That same coin is for sale on JN coins, must be a miracle that it has teleported itself to your sofa LOL

  11. One would think they would strive to live up to their name and set an example. Can't be due to a lack of funds that's for sure.

    Rare coin lost in post

    I won a coin at Katz auction in December 2019 which was sent with tracking. It disappeared at the border. They confirmed to me yesterday that Czech post still hadn’t been able locate it so a refund will be made. Credit to them. 8 months later, pfff. It’s the only one I’ve had go missing 🤞🏽but not a pleasant experience at all.

    Pedantry Corner...

    A little diverse pedantry. Watched University Challenge last night. There was a bonus round on National Coats of Arms. Paxman referred to Supporters as Dexters and Sinisters instead of, Supporter dexter side and Supporter sinister side.🤔

    Florin 1849

    If it was a polished disk then I agree, but the overall dimensions do not take into account any variances in reeding/relief/embossing. The volume of displaced water accounts for this.
