  1. slowly getting life back on track. thought I'd stop by and say hi. still alive, but sometimes that is more of a curse than a blessing. but in all honesty, things are gradually becoming normal, once again. hope to stop by a little more often, just to see how the old gang (and all the new people) are doing on that side of the pond.

    The New Check Your Change 2007

    I am back from a long hiatus (see my sig for information). E-mail sent to you, Chris.
  3. http://tinyurl.com/grty6 Aidan's bio on MySpace makes for good entertaining reading!!
  4. September 30, 1992. According to the RM website, that is.
  5. The majority of the presentation folders are issued by the RM as a marketing tool, and include the coin. In reality, it would be foolish for someone to open up the packaging and sell/spend the coin, as the price for the whole package is really high compared to the face value of the coin. The RM markets these as pure profit. Why sell a coin to be used in circulation for a mere £2, when we can spend an extra 60p, make a fancy little folder with information, and sell it for £9.95. Can you say "cha-ching!!"

    1937 3d

    Jumped into the "wayback machine" and pulled out the 1999 CCGB for this tidbit of info: It would seem logical that the type A was the first production run, and the B would be the second production run, which could possibly be continued into later years, and thus everything from 1938 on should hypothetically be "small gap".

    Decimal Coins wanted for images.

    Most of mine are in mint packaging, too. I will try a couple scans as TIF, through the packaging, and see how that works. Might be doable. Got the afternoon off, so I can do some right now.
  8. Chris, I like the new layout. The color scheme looks good, and the nameplate across the top looks just like your business cards. One problem I have noticed. Just below the nameplate at the top, on the left side is a link to the parent site (www.predecimal.com) which doesn't work. Now if all get people here with our wit, charm, and great answers, how are you supposed to get them to your shop??
  9. The Edward VIII pieces were never released. The George VI pieces were released in a quantity of 8+ million .
  10. glad to help. both the Charlton book for Canada (dates back to the 1950's) and the "Redbook" for US (dates back to the 1940's) are annual issues, and sell for about US10-15 each. If you not real fussy, I would recommend picking up a used one that is a couple years old. Recently, they have improved the quality of both books (in my opinion) by making them spiral bound, instead of the standard softback with a glued spine. (hmm, maybe a suggestion for Chris )
  11. (Sweden) KM#520, mintage of 2.5 million, worth £5-10. {.800 silver, .1929 oz ASW} "Indian Head" cent, mintage over 48 million, worth £1 or so. KM#855, mintage of 16 million, worth less than £1 KM#19, mintage over 312 million, worth less than £1 token or jeton?? see #9, above KM#530 or 531, mintage over 250 million, worth less than £1 depending on size, either a farthing of halfpenny not sure about this one, double check the date! need to know size of this one, too see #9, above
  12. the majority of them are out-dated, but I have learned that for common dates/grades, the values tend to change very slowly, and that most catalogs have obscenely high values to begin with, so a 5 year old catalogs' values tend to be in line with current "real" values. what I use, regularly: 1996 Krause, Standard Catalog of World Coins (covers 1801-1995) 2002 Krause, Standard Catalog of World Coins (covers 1901-2001) 1959 Craig, Coins of the World, 1750-1850 (obsolete, but good information for the late 1700's coinage) 2005 Rotographic, Collectors' Coins Great Britain (of course!!) 1999 Coincraft, Standard Catalog of English & UK Coins, 1066 to Date (great help in identification) 1976 Seaby, Coins of England & the United Kingdom (not used much since getting the Coincraft) 1991 Charlton, Standard Catalog of Canadian Coins (older catalogs like this give better information as far as mintages, varieties, etc, but values are not accurate) 1965 Charlton, Standard Catalog of Canadian Coin, Tokens and Paper Money (great entry level book for the tokens) 1989 Yeoman, Guidebook of United States Coins (the "Redbook") I also have a few smaller, obscure specialty catalogs, which I am gradually adding to. Bear in mind, most of the values I give I try to give the low end of the spectrum, not to build their expectations too high. For example, if someone were to ask about an 1869 halfpenny, according to Collectors' Coins GB2005, in fine it is £15, in EF it is £250. I would probably give it a value of £8-10, knowing that it may well be only F (or less!), and that assuming they were to try to offer it to a dealer/reseller, they would not realize anywhere full catalog for it. And if it did turn out the be EF, and a dealer offered £100 or so, then they would be much happier than the other way around. Another problem I have is that the majority of my references are in US dollars, and so I try my best to guesstimate the conversion to £, usually I figure about US$1.80 to £1. But, when the catalogs were written, those rates may have been well different, so as a percentage increase, what would be an accurate conversion?
  13. will do the last group later tonight or tomorrow
