    Stuff to Make Us Laugh

    100% agreed. Incidentally, where is Richard? Normally logs in several times a day. Last seen Aug 29.
  2. looks like it's from an auction catalogue, Rob. Do you have details as to which one? Thanks.
  3. As Rob says, yours was the "PENNEY" spelling error, as opposed to the rare date. We found yours in this thread, but for whatever reason Richard couldn't properly load the reverse pic (scroll down to example 4 of the "PENNEY" errors) in his rarest pennies website. Does the date example with the bright blue background, belong to you?

    I think that's probably correct. We do lack manual skill in tis country. Good job Rob is so good, and such a decent boke.

    Roma Numismatics - Seen This?

    He looks so smug, doesn't he.

    well yes, I take your point, but he must also know that only a tiny minority take wokeism seriously, nor does it ever affect more than a tiny minority. If Putin did decide to attack across Europe he'd be annihilated. As for voluntereering, how many of the Russian population would want to take part in a suicide mission?

    They could be. Or perhaps from the USA. I'm not convinced Putin has any interest in fanning the flames of wokery.

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Thanks Ian - I didn't actually buy it, on the basis I've already got one just as good, if not better, for a lot more. Could conceivably be a fake.

    has there been a software change?

    My thread page buttons are working fine. Able to navigate between different pages on different threads, no problem at all.

    The Bronze Coinage of Great Britain (2016)

    Same with Gouby, but people get so used to Freeman numbers, that they just don't bother with anything else.

    The Bronze Coinage of Great Britain (2016)

    I've remembered now - that's why I bought the 2016 edition of Freeman - see if there were any "A's" legitimately added on to the new varieties nereast to original Freeman numbers, which weren't already there. If you remember, some auction houses were doing this, especially DNW, as if those number/letter combos already officially existed. but I discovered they didn't, so put the new book aside. .

    The Bronze Coinage of Great Britain (2016)

    Yes I did. It's in pretty much perfect condition as hardly ever used. So you can have it for £30 + postage. PM me your address, and I'll PM you my bank details. Even though not expensive I would still recommend next day tracked delivery. Let me know what you think.
