  1. I think Ireland might be a bit upset..... 😬 ( Hi guys - I still check in now and then!)
  2. 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!
  3. 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?"😄
  4. Which is why I love love tokens....still 😃

    One Penny 1882

    That would be me then! That's a nicely engraved "love token" Do you want to sell it? Peck is that your "potty" penny? Here's the nearest one I have on a 1827 half paenny ...

    See a penny, pick it up...

    Perfect for an engraving......
  7. Perfectly normal size for that date - you want to find one that size with 1991 on....

    How much is my Oenny Worth

    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

    How much is my Oenny Worth

    Certainly the wear around the inner rim where it is recessed would suggest wear post alteration.

    How much is my Oenny Worth

    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.

    Love tokens and engraved coins

    Hi Guys - just seen this. No didn't get an email notification but saw the little blue box! Thanks for thinking of me!

    EU referendum - in or out?

    And back to coins! here
  13. 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! ) . Anyone else planning to go?

    Sad Day…...

    Part of my youth too. Saw him a couple of times during the 80's in Manchester an Birmimgham. My favorite track has always been Wild is the Wind https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WezuFTlF9e8
  15. Good morning gentlemen. So I've got this coin (and it's not been engraved!) I just wanted to run this by you please? Is this a Davis 9 over 6 /8/ 9 or something different? The surface looks slightly odd in the picture, but looks genuine in hand to me. Thanks in advance.
  16. Sadly I don't think I'll ever be able to be a penny collector.......
  17. Happy birthday from me too!
  18. Apparently ..... Bender = sixpence (6d) Another slang term with origins in the 1800s when the coins were actually solid silver, from the practice of testing authenticity by biting and bending the coin, which would being made of near-pure silver have been softer than the fakes
  19. Now you just need to translate a bit, a bob, a pony, a tanner and a bender!

    Set Wanted

    Well I've definitely got the makings of a "Monarchs with hats ( and a few pipes) set!

    Tough Mudder

    Good luck Richard - I thought you were referring to your daughter when you said "an asthmatic 59 year old" which would make you rather older than you are!
  22. Ah well, I'll put it with all my other post mint altered coins!
  23. Following on from the thread I started on my overdated shilling - and many thanks for your comments chaps - http://www.predecimal.com/forum/topic/10066-shilling-over-date/ I was wondering if there is anyone who would like to buy it off me? I would rather put the money towards a nice engraved coin! Open to offers, was thinking something over £20? Message me if you are interested. Thanks.
