  1. OK! As no-one else has come forward - yet, I'll venture the first one as Henry III class 6x of Canterbury. My reference being Wren "The Short-cross Coinage 1180-1247. But I stand to be corrected! The second - I have no idea!!!

    Edward II Canterbury Penny Class 11a2

    Nice find! I don't think the 'punctuation mark' is intended. Perhaps a rough made blank before striking? If you look around your expanded clips you see much evidence for this!

    Spink catalogues

    I'm just simple. I look at a coin and decide how much I'm willing to pay, then that's my limit! Mind you I'm old enough to have used Seaby's so I might be a bit parsimonious with my prices but, hey!, if I get it, it's a bonus!!

    Spink catalogues

    I have always skipped 2 or 3 years between buying Spinks. After all it's only a rough guide to value. Anyone taking the prices as gospel deserve to get burned.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I see there are more appearing on fleabay. Next they'll be taking a rasp to the coins to simulate plough damage!

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    How did you count the edge milling? Used sellotape to ensure it didn't move and then marked off every 10 Sellotape on a coin???

    2016 Proof set

    Another reason why I don't collect milled! - I acquire them from circulation. Good enough for me.

    Grading Hammered!

    WooHoo! I must regrade/revalue my example!!

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    My collection must be priceless

    Henry VIII Groat

    Thanks ,all. I'll still give it a miss at the way the price is going!!

    Henry VIII Groat

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151849672413?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2648 What's the consensus on this one ? I'm just suspicious.
  13. Geordie582

    Edward I Penny, but which class

    I concur with Clive. A superb book for the first examinations.
  14. Geordie582

    Henry VIII Groat

    It's just that the obverse scratches look deliberate "aging" to me. I'm just an old cynic. I would have thought they would extend to the legend if accidental.
  15. Geordie582

    Clubs and societies

    In the wilderness of West Cumbria there are no clubs ( as far as I know) but so are dealers or shops to cater for my taste! So the forum and internet are my mainstay!!
  16. Geordie582

    Shill bidding?

    As an 85 year old, I feel you're taking the mickey .
  17. Geordie582

    Edward I , class 4b ?

    I agree. Pity we can't see the 'E' for certain identification. ( where's Clive when you want him?)
  18. Geordie582

    Mrs Peter

    Really terrible news, Peter. I don't drop in to the forum that much but to be greeted with your awful news has shocked me. Feeling for you ,mate. My condolences to you and your family.

    Two Cheers for Jeremy Corbyn!

    Surely the answer is easy. A fine for not voting and maybe we'd get the government the people REALLY want !

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    They all look as fake as fudge to me. And yet.. people are bidding. I would agree. There are quite a few Anglo-Saxon Northumbrian appearing on Ebay lately just as pristine and definitely cast copies.

    Thank You! Another drop of information to add to other forgotten facts! Memory is for the young!
  22. Geordie582


    Copulative omega Thanks for that. Now I can sleep happy !!! Moneyer mark perhaps ?
  23. Geordie582


    What is the symbol between the M and O on the reverse?
  24. Clive just trying to make me even more jealous!!! Chris, If you do venture into the murky depths of Hammered for a book then you can use any of my coins on Omnicoin (for the lower end of the scale!) WARNING. The collection does wander a bit in coverage!
  25. OK ! I'll challenge our experts to come up with just a grading for Henry II Tealby issues!
