  1. Yes it is, lot 364 with link as follows https://www.noonans.co.uk/auctions/archive/lot-archive/results/422196/
  2. Yesterday was my first time to participate in Noonans auction since their revamp in webpages, but i found no voice n video was available during live bid through my android cell phone. In PC, it's totally fine. Am i missed anything in setting? By the way, price seems up again, 1897 jubilee silver medal with case was hammered at over 200, n some other gothic florins at over 500, 600 as well.
  3. I see. By the way, I always don't like the way they are showing their pictures now in archive pages. Once the picture is opened, i cannot switch to other sites or pictures for easy comparison.
  4. For existing catalogue, it should be right above lots. For past result, it is in auction - lot archive.
  5. Lovely 1885 florin, it looks better than picture at St James, great buy. One question re the import duty, what if bringing coins in person to UK, how the custom officer assess value of the predecimal coin n levy the tax? Solely on self declared value?

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Good, if they can sell this, more and more of the same must be offered by them in near future.

    Coin Reverse Orientation

    Interesting, would like to learn the reason behind as well.
  8. Very nice, wish you have the final piece of puzzle soon, good luck.
  9. Thank you Sword. Errrr.... that's my life recently, report after report, poor me😪
  10. When i click Important Information for Buyer, nothing is showing up. Do they mention buyer's premium in the new site? Seems i am unable to locate it, though i presume there is no change.
  11. DNW is simple n we all get use to say DNW here n there...but if they are originally partnership n others 2 are left, then name change is becoming a must for them.
  12. I noticed there will be another penny from LCA years ago to be auctioned in HA, with slab change from CGS to NGC. I think price will go much higher as well, in view of usual high prices in US n Japan auction houses.

    DNW Hammered Prices

    I monitored some pennies in this auction and the one held in a day before. But finally, I can make bid for 1 lot only, coz others were way above my target in opening bid.

    DNW Hammered Prices

    yes, don't know if due to lighting or else. By the way, if look at reverse, is it worth MS64?

    DNW Hammered Prices

    Crazily high. Not only this one, but also other Crown, Halfcrown, Florin.....
  16. I am looking at Schulman bv auction right now, and prices hammered seems on high side for UK coins.
  17. I briefly go through the auction items days ago, and have a feeling that estimates are not cheap in view of items and quality offering. I will likely pass n wait for subsequent Shilling one. For Churchill, i remember it's discussed in another post that high price realised. I am also not a fan of this Crown. Let's see how it is performed this time.
  18. Agree, gas, food, toilet paper all are going up, except our pay, paper money is just a piece of paper n may worth nothing in current inflation world. But 800 or even half seems too much for a Churchill😉.
  19. Years ago, i have asked them for pictures of actual coin selling. They declined to do so, and said if you think the quality is not up to standard, you can return in 7 or 14 days which i can't remember the exact days. I think they are having below par sales standard for such a big organization.
  20. RM must be making a hefty profit from buying at 50 and selling at 250. Maybe they are charging 200 for authentication😅.
  21. Solely speculation i think, and is similar to the "gimmick" of NFT which I totally have no idea about it, and also no one care about ownership of the coin. For the value, i think it will be determined by the seller, who will only sell a little part at first, pushing up the price, and sell the rest. Traditionally trap, haha, am i thinking too much? It's also mentioned 100 replicas will be made with Baldwin, any chance these will be sold in the market as a real one in the future? By the way, I would rather have a very common 1963 Penny on hand, at least I own an art piece😁, though someone may think otherwise😅.
  22. I also do not know how to differentiate 1858 and 1859 Die 3A with others, even after studying samples from London Coins past auction results. For shilling list, it's a very comprehensive list, you may add 1887 Die 1A, 1B, 1C. Some other minor variances regarding date width for earlier years, for example 1842, 1856, but there may be too many to include in the list.
  23. US auction houses, alongside with Japan auction houses, often have some extraordinary good prices for UK coins🤔. No idea why😅.
  24. Same here in Hong Kong, my younger colleague is talking about it and speculate in every week, while to me, just like a unrealistic black hole which may become zero when wake up one day. Maybe I am too old already😅.
