  1. Dear Jaggy

    I have been struggeling with the 1887 sixpences for several years. I am not worried about all the R/V R/I or JEB on trunk, these are the basics from Davies. I am concerned about The filled crown on the reverse which seems to have two obverse dies. I am listing 7,8,9,10 obverse varieties of R/I inc A/A. I am worried about the different obverses that go with type three reverse and indeed the two main varieties of type 3 reverse. Would you be a good person to talk to? Looking at your profile picture you seem to know a bit about 1887 and wonder if you got anything from the sale of Alfred Bole sixpences sold by DNW.

      Appreciate the offer but the Pattern Sixpence is really one of my favourite coins and one that I want to keep a hold of.

      Last question is it struck     ˄˅ or ˄˄    and could it be Tin?

      Always keep me in mind when you are ready to do a swap or sale. 07967505509

      It is struck ˄˅ and definitely aluminium.
