  1. I think some of the funniest things happen in real life...

    Our friends have two young sons and one year they bought the oldest one an ant farm ( a glass container where you can view how the ants burrow through sand )

    That Christmas they took their younger son to see Santa who asked him what he would like for Christmas. Their boy in all innocence and with some enthusiasm replied 

    " Could I please have a "buggery" like my brother got..... "  😮  I think they had a bit of explaining to do!

  2. Quote

    Arthur is 85 years old. He's played golf every day since his retirement 20 years ago. One day, he arrives home looking downcast.

    "That's it...." he tells his wife, "I'm giving up golf. My eyesight has got so bad.”

    "Oh no!" she replied.

    Arthur then tells her, "Once I've hit the ball, I can't see where it went!"

    His wife sympathises. As they sit down, she has a suggestion: "Why don't you take my brother with you and give it one more try."

    "That's no good...." sighs Arthur, "George is 92. He can't help."

    "He may be 92...." says the wife, "but his eyesight is perfect."

    So the next day, Arthur heads off to the golf course with his brother-in-law.

    He tees up, takes an almighty swing and squints down the fairway.

    He turns to the brother-in-law. "Did you see the ball?"

    "Of course I did!", says the brother-in-law. "I have perfect eyesight."

    "And where did it go?" asks Arthur.

    “I Can't remember...”.😝

    That reminds me of another joke...

    Two older couples are at one of their houses having just spent a pleasant dinner party together. The wives are in the kitchen chatting and the two men are together at the table.

    One friend turns to the other " You know Frank there's a new restaurant opened in town, we had a really lovely meal there the other day, I would highly recommend it"
    Frank is interested " Sounds great, what's it called?"

    His mate screws up his face trying to remember and asks " Er what's the name of that flower that you give out a Valentines day, usually red?" 
    Frank replies " Do you mean a rose?"

    " That's it !!"  replies his friend and proceeds to shout towards the kitchen "Rose, what's the name of that new restaurant we visited last week?"😄

  3. I take your point that the engraving may have been done later than 1916, but there are tokens out there that see lots of wear post engraving.
    Here's one on the bay of a similar design and same year, again showing lots of wear on the inner rim. Obviously not the same subject  matter, but will give another indication of price.here

  4. Hi Schhokarcoins   the coin has been engraved rather than stamped. 
    Engraved coins are always difficult to value as they are usually only worth as much as a particular collector is willing to pay. I would probably pay up to about £30, but with its obvious reference and date  you may have more luck if you put it on Ebay under trench art.  

  5. Afternoon all. We are in London this weekend and I see that the  London Coin Fair is on. Anyone have any information on it please - I've only ever visited the Midland one.

    Worth the £5 entrance fee?  Best to visit am or pm ?  I only have a couple of hours wary that I will be overwhelmed with floors of coins that won't really interest me ( ie not engraved! :ph34r:) . 

    Anyone else planning to go?
