  1. Thanks Alan. Just spotted your moniker. Nice one.😁
  2. I've not tried this but would it work on android please?
  3. Poor man only mentioned that he had a nice book for sale. Was going to remind everyone about this year's Bring and Buy, in the village hall. But on second thoughts.......
  4. Arrived from Spain yesterday. Pleased to say that it is one. 9 1/2 date space and D to a tooth. Far better condition than I was expecting. Via this thread, a population of 7, known or presumed, since 2008. Extremely rare, or only 5 people bothered to look for one. Possibly the latter.😁
  5. If the sellers photos are to be believed, I think I've picked up another one.
  6. Toothed border/beaded border.

    Exactly as Martin says. I should have been more concise in response. Apologies.

    Reverse E. Similar die fill.
  9. If Michael has no copies available, I'm happy to let mine go. Purchased from Michael, as new, when first published. And unfortunately unused. ( My pockets aren't deep enough for pennies).

    Took a while to locate it. Reverse G. Die fill to the top of the E may be useful in finding another example.

    Just got in. Looking for it now.

    Hi all. It appears that I'm late to the party and the cleaners are just stacking the chairs and sweeping up. Not much to add really. I would agree with Bernie that mine is an obverse 4 and Martin's a 6. The A pointing in Victoria is different due to rotation. As is the D of D:G: Martin's being extreme. Richard has mentioned the V of Victoria. I think the R of BRITT on mine has been repunched, slightly rotated too. Martin's strongly appears to be an E. Mine, I'm not sure. I can see Jon's reasoning for an E but I've always swayed to an F as Jerry says. Give me an hour or so, and I'll see if I can do some better photos as I think there may be something going on under the B too. Cracking find Martin.

    SCARCE 1956 Halfpenny

    I've messaged you Chris. All will be revealed.

    SCARCE 1956 Halfpenny

    I'm afraid there's a bit of a queue Chris. You'll have to join the back. You may also need to bring a chair with you. Could be a lengthy wait. 😁. (And you already have 2 of these F475, to my knowledge).

    Not in hand yet. Christmas post delays etc. An unfair question I'll admit. Photos when it arrives. Thanks Martin

    Thought I'd cropped that. Not going to try an edit. I'm not that brave.😁.

    Seasonal greetings etc..... eBay purchase last week, mainly because I thought there may be a P lurking under the F. Paired with a 7. My current example is obvious, as the F has worn away, leaving a definite P. These better grade coins are open to dispute, as not immediately apparent. At £26, I took a chance. Just wondering what others thought.

    Charles I Angel and medallions

    I know nothing about these but what a pleasure it would be to own. Beautiful.

    Do you remember the one that Jon posted. Had that Crown stamped into it. That matches the above coin. No A die crack and a huge crack under chin. Page 18 in this thread.
