  1. The one at the Coinery just hammered at £2300😓
  2. I also see 2 56 in auctions in past few months, i only remember the one at Warwick seems grade EF. Is it implied the 56 is not as rare as we think before?
  3. Finally have time to take pictures of the 1853 Penny Intermediate colon received before. Pity that there's edge bruise at obverse, however it's still a lovely penny to appreciate.
  4. I noticed that lot at Noonas as well. For the broken r, i also have a gothic florin with broken m in date, i think it may be happened sometimes in some VF/F example. For the weakened i in date, i don't have any idea, coz the 2nd last i is not weak, however the shoulder is worn coincidentally. For the price, I think £446 for this 1862 Gothic is a bit higher, maybe around £300 is more reasonable if this is not a counterfeit one. However a decent example for 1862 is not showing up often.
  5. Agree, for much ordinary or normal item also the same. I remember 1953 proof set was only £50 around years ago, and now it costs £100 around for a set.
  6. Grading is always a mystery 😅

    Halfpenny ID check

    Well done Rob, i bidded in the same auction, but didn't spot this one.
  8. Many thanks, extended the knowledge of Gothic Florin by reading the articles. Thank you again.👍
  9. I forget where i read before about this variety, coz in my coin list, i marked down 46 trefoils for my 1887 Florin, . i didn't see 1 isn't 46, however as Nick said, everything is possible.

    Sorry to hear about that. Wonder if the seller deliberately blur the picture or how to amend it to look like HALP, as no where like a P in the coin you received.
  11. Yes, there is far too many uncertainty in LCA auction, which makes my bids used to more prudence than any live bids.
  12. Undoubtedly yes, and they like everything in a small plastic box
  13. Maybe bit more harsh, gVF to me, anyway, no where near AU.
  14. Ha yes, american grading, everything is AU😂. Large rose small date (hope correct), pity that there are dirt on it, however if it is not imperfect, i think it will be out of my reach.
  15. Just received this penny yesterday. Although I'm not a fan of slabbed coin n no idea why it's graded as AU, I'm still happy to secure this 1858 penny.
  16. I think 20% is the medium price of auction houses, though some maybe lower n some higher. I used to set a gross sum intend to bid before auction. If an auction charge a higher premium, then the bid will be lower. If the premium is lower, then the bid can be higher.
  17. Even though it is MS63 (unsure whether it worth that grade), it is still ridiculously steep in price.
  18. I am ok to browse through both Lockdales n Easyliveauction site now, maybe it's just a glitch moment before.

    Possible fake 1905 Halfcrown

    Agree that it doesn't look alright. The area around ear in obverse is a bit weird too?
  20. The website is down since yesterday afternoon, so that unable to check hammered prices of lots
