  1. No transport available to or from my therapy session tomorrow. The bus is a 5 minute scoot away so praying no heavy rain or thunder...

    Rare 20p

    What do they mean, "the only one of its kind known"? The only 1990 20p struck on the wrong planchet? Quite probably. But what about other 'known' coins struck on the wrong planchet? They are all unique misstrikes and therefore only of interest to those who collect such things. Is there anyone here even remotely interested?

    Rare 20p

    I'd be gobsmacked tbh - there's no shortage of coins struck on the wrong planchet. £100 seems nearer the mark.
  4. It is thought that experimentation with that had already occurred by 1923, that is *IF* the 1922 penny with similar reverse to 1927 was actually struck in 1922 (my own thought is that it could well have been struck later - to strike a few pennies with a date of 1923/24/25 could have been problematic if they got out).

    Milk, plain, or white?
  6. Just mind your peas and cues...
  7. I searched for "field image" and there was nothing relevant that came up. I'd suggest that if your site still apparently functions ok, I wouldn't worry about mysterious messages from Google.

    Ah, but is it roofless?
  9. The local Cote Brasserie only accepts card payments and have done ever since after the first lockdown. I'm hoping I enoy a good meal there and then their card machine breaks down! I don't carry cash ... I did once unexpectedly go to B&Q. I looked around, wondered where I was for several minutes, then went up to the counter and asked for a packet of frozen peas. And four candles...

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    He says it's BUNC - surely it's spelled BUNK, which itself must be a typo for JUNK.

    Can’t post in the “wanted” area

    That's a ludicrous price. You shouldn't pay more than around £25 (at most) for a BU 1938.
  13. I think the .webp is the problem - if you could repost the links just as .jpg it won't insist I download them (I tried removing the .webp but nothing doing)

    Royal Mint quality control (or the lack of)

    minus 8 out of 10?

    S.G.Onions is the person behind my Albert PoW 12 PENCE MAKE ONE SHILLING (must be, as the initials SGO are on it.)

    1981 25p "Experimental Coin"

    Fascinating - though they must have known that it was to be the new 20p, introduced the following year.

    2009 Mule 10 Pence With Lion Reverse of 2007

    That was the new reverse from 2008 - quite different as you can see.
  18. We must have had a good soak last night as there was plenty of water in the pot saucers this morning. Having said that, today's 'thunder weather warning' never materialised.

    Halfcrown list

    If E over R what do you think about the protrusion showing above the E downstroke, which could not possibly be an R ?
  20. Tonight there could be heavy rain in the SW - and overnight is the ideal time!
  21. Peckris 2

    Halfcrown list

    I'd say quite possibly E over B ? The top picture quite clearly shows the lower loop curving left back towards the downstroke, which the R wouldn't do. There's also something else going on above the E - something protruding above the top right hand side of the downstroke, and something to the right of the top serif which could in no way form part of an R

    Could you add a note about the note about Note 18 please?

    The rarest coin you own?

    Indeed - though there are several scarce varieties, e.g. initials on truncation, and overstamped letters in VICTORIA, which mine isn't.

    Storage of proof coins

    I'd say proofs in a cabinet are fine. They might tone (or not) but would remain FDC.

    The rarest coin you own?

    Just the bog standard one as far as I can tell, nothing to see!
