  1. Press the Windows key + e to give you an explorer window, then make sure 'This PC' is expanded, all your drives will be listed below. Alternatively, just put a cd into the drive and a window should appear (or you will be given a choice of what happens next).

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    "not sure if genuine" translates to "I know it's a fake, but I'm selling it anyway".
  3. You still can, but not easily. If you use Chrome, you can press F12 to view the page source etc, then find the images for that page, open in new tab, then save. Here is the same image that Mike posted. And here is the link.

    Zero chance of being genuine.
  5. Lot 980 is a fake 1864 florin DN 64.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Seller's name looks familiar. A forum member I think.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    The item has been marked as a 'private listing', so even less can be seen of the bidding than usual. Private listing to me equates to stay away.
  8. Definitely looks like 3 over something, either 8 or back to front 3.
  9. Translation: Parliament disagrees with people, people should think again.
  10. Indeed, but that won't stop them. If Brexit is not delivered, both the Tories and Labour will suffer at the ballot box, but the Tories will be decimated and the net result will be a Labour government (possibly propped up by the SNP). Maybe 5 years of Corbyn/Sturgeon is just the sort of reality check the country needs. Mind you, the irony meter would go off the scale if the EU commission blocked a Corbyn government budget like it has done with Italy.
  11. That doesn't seem to matter, when the majority of MPs voted to remain.
  12. There are many people in the UK who will see that as a victory.
  13. Quite possible. Assuming that the proofs were struck before the circulation coins.
  14. Both examples of 1902 matt proof crowns that I have exhibit the same die polishing lines, which may have come from the original matrix. See if your example has the same lines. If it does it's a proof.
  15. Isn't that what they said in 2016. "It is your decision. The government will implement what you decide.". Yeah right.
  16. The obvious problem with any possible scenario is that if the answer is still leave, then parliament will not accept it.
  17. Not sure I like the way you quoted that @secret santa. You have changed Mike's quote into mine. It makes it look like I suggested a 2nd referendum - which I most certainly did not.
  18. It's not just the colour, the strike is too good for circulation and the rim is too flat and perfectly uniform.
  19. Can't answer your question, but there is more information here and decent pictures for comparison purposes.
  20. You sure that's circulation Paul? Looks like a matt proof to me. Or do you mean a matt proof that's seen circulation?
  21. Splitting the leave vote would hardly be democratic, unless you mean that remain would need 67% to beat the sum of the other 2 options. But how could you even have remain on the referendum, when that question has already been asked and rejected. It is only a failure of parliament to enact the wishes of the people that is the problem.

    Keyboard Logger

    It's a trojan virusware intended to discover usernames, passwords and other confidential information.
  23. I think you'd be within your rights to send it back because it is not as described. It is described as very high grade and it is not.
