    Oldest coin you received in change/spent?

    I have found OH viccies and Edward VII heavily worn both sides,to the extent of your average 1890's pennies
  3. isn't that a die error the filled thing, I have a few.. 1699-1701 the quality goes downhill find a few missing N as well spot the error another example of the filled T's... also on a cast planchet 2 more spot the errors some other rare unlisted William halfpenny errors 6 over 5?
  4. what is the date on the iceland coin? the earlier ones are worth a bit
  5. depends, leaving high bids doesn't always shoot up, only shoots up when you get a few high bids

    bit like when I bought my 1858 farthing, bought it because was a nice design and cheap, only to find out years later it was the small date one
  7. yea, but my favourate was 1879 penny.... 2 types, i got for 99p.. granted very worn.. but it was clear it was both 1879 wide and Narrow in the pictures
  8. try the post office as well, big city ones even sell sets etc.
  9. rares don't always get noticed though, bagged a few for peanuts in the past.
  10. yea and now everyone bids on it

    Opinions on eBay

    I find it annoying as a buyer, you select the coins page and all you get are £1 coins and 50ps....
  16. well the coins back then were valued on silver weight, so a coin of similar metal, size and therefore, weight would be taken as legal tender, I see a few Metal detecting find lots on Ebay seem to have coins of Venice, so what we probably see are people trading, bring back the currency and use it. Remember also that Portugal is our oldest Ally.

    so identifiable that it is a farthing.. worth less then a fiver. Don't see many Halfpennies, so even that state... not worth the asking price and people and their throwers... throw em my way.
