    Facebook Coin Pages/Groups?

    there is indeed - rather than the overall Facebook search, groups have their own search field (side rather than top) where you can restrict search to only the posts in that group. The only thing s - I don't know how far back it will go.

    Facebook Coin Pages/Groups?

    I've seen a couple of Facebook groups, but they seem to be relatively inexperienced collectors excited by very average stuff. Oh and convinced that the odd cud is a rare variety!
  3. ditto, though finding stuff is rather difficult. I'd rather not spend hours trawling through eBay.

    1965 sixpence dies 1B (D of DEI to a gap)

    Even if your lot number was correct, it wouldn't be the same coin - I've had mine for many years! I bought it as an ordinary 64 6d and noticed the missing character.

    1965 sixpence dies 1B (D of DEI to a gap)

    I was thinking more of the I of GRATIA missing (die fill).

    has there been a software change?

    I for one would be grateful if you didn't upgrade the software - I've not experienced any of the problems mentioned but I do use a very old version (the latest allowed for my OS ) of Firefox and I suspect that an upgrade may stop it working?

    The Bronze Coinage of Great Britain (2016)

    @Chris Perkins - can you answer the question about why there isn't a Kindle edition of the latest CCGB? Thx

    I'm not sure I'm with you here, not at all. Clearly climate emergency, zero covid, US/NATO/EU 'world order' are not 'leftward' in any way shape or form. You'll have to explain that. And if Pizza Hut did produce a pizza in the colours of Ukrainian flag, how is that woke? It sounds much more like a commercial way of jumping on the bandwagon to create more sales.

    Interesting analysis. I agree that the left have become 'Blairite', i.e. more representative of "big banks, corporations, professions (always teachers, but now also lawyers and doctors)", and that the right has become populist, if by that you mean 'Trumpite'. However that has little to do with 'cancel culture' which I believe is one of the many culture wars and therefore largely non-political. I'm mostly against it - fatuous and offensive positions should be exposed to view so they can be mocked, rather than cancelled. But I still am no wiser as to what 'woke' actually means.

    I think you'd have to explain that? Keir Starmer's near silent endorsement of Brexit would seem to indicate something different. Labour are a very broad church (as the Tories used to be pre-Boris) but generally they are more or less Blairites in their political colour, which itself is to the right of 60s and 70s Labour.

    I agree with you. I think 'woke' is simply a modern redefinition of 'political correctnesss'. PC did have a germ of truth in it, probably based in the rather abstract musings of psychologists and sociologists, but got exaggerated and blown out of all reality by the Murdoch press when they realised that it roused the ire of certain sectors of the population, which then sold more copies of their papers.
