    Coin aquisition of the week.......

    I'll have to hunt them out, I imagine it's just me memory being a bit iffy as I sold it a few years ago, one of a pair I found in a field The BM disclaimed them, have changed computers about 4 times if not more since though, so images are possibly lost. I don't doubt yours is correct! EDIT to add an image and show just how iffy memory gets after 10 years or so lol Yours is nicer but I got more for mine

    2021 coin found

    Get them to read the edge inscription to you if it's the skull. There is a "king and country" error.

    Happy New Year!

    May it be a happy, healthy and rewarding one for all!
  9. What @Colin88 said. I wouldn't keep that for £100.
  10. They're catching up faster than you think. Currently about 80. Kew is 110+ depending on condition. I have the 92, as for the kew, when I find one I shall have it. Screw paying that much for cuni.
  11. She wasn't a looker was she
  12. 1887 Sixpence ESC3267 JEB on truncation, would like better but online prices don't seem to reflect aution realised prices very well.
  13. it's not very toned, but it is silver, a gap filled but not as nicely as I'd like...
