    VIP proof? (Very Improbable Price)

    Using acetone to clean coins

    Presumably surgical spirit - being clear - doesn't have any dye problem?

    It's not entirely 'cached' - yes, that's part of the reason, but it's mainlyt down to the fact that your browser is running the site a bit "behind". As you say, refreshing the page should resolve things, but having said that I've never had a problem with Noonans where the video shows separately from the lot information and two appear to be in sync.

    Possible Variety 1962 penny

    my thought is that it's a striking error at the Mint (misstrike) ... but if there's only the one, it's not likely to command a premium and wouldn't be considered a 'variety' as such.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I know! Gobsmacked is an understatement of how I feel..

    More Pennies

    I'd go for a grade of AUNC on that reverse - it may in fact be UNC but the 'lustre wear' together with the fact that it's a slightly weaker strike than the obverse would make me downgrade it a little.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    It also just "looks" wrong, on an intuitive level.

    That's in a pretty good grade too...

    SCARCE 1956 Halfpenny

    I would have been tempted but I bought one off Gary some years back. If you ever have this obverse with the normal reverse for sale ... let me know!!

    Error Code?

    Windows appeared in the 80s! And the first useful version 3.1, was 1990?
  18. Peckris 2


    apparently that's one theory. another says it's from an OED editor CT Onions. yet another says it began in the US.

    Error Code?

    no problem here, using Firefox 78 ESR
  20. Peckris 2


    Yes, somewhere I have a couple of those. Very nice and probably my only toy coins. (I think the engraver - SGO - has the surname Onions??) It's the future Edward VII in case you were wondering...

    1919 kn forgery

    You have a beautiful example there Richard - one of the best I've seen, superbly struck up compared with the average example. HOWEVER... even at a glance I can see the differences on the reverse. From the eyebrow height of the helmet and head, down the neck, to below the breast area, and the drapery adjacent to the shield - it's all more vague and less precise, which is inevitable when you consider the deep cut portrait on the obverse. Which is why I sigh admiringly at your example, which is so obviously genuine, but would run a mile from the other which is just too precisely modelled to be anything but fake.

    1862 penny check

    I reckon the seller has misread HONI as WYON.

    1919 kn forgery

    I'd run a mile if I saw that. Britannia fully struck up? Teeth prooflike? Sharp portrait? It screams 'fake' to me.
  24. Possibly he started well before 1967? But yes, in time it would have been a real pain.
  25. for some reason there was no Kindle ed of the last CCGB, which I think is a shocking omission.
