  1. Rather chuffed with this newbie, mid-1790s halfpenny Conder token
  2. Thanks chaps, I'm leaning towards a recut 3 (as did the seller)
  3. What do people think of this one please, 3 over 3? Recut 3?
  4. Bull / ESC have this listed as R2, which doesn't seem to be reflected in Spink or realised sale prices. Probably an error? Anyway, here's my only example, not particularly high grade.
  5. Standard type, just querying the rarity rating?
  6. Here's a happier horse, my York Type 5
  7. Another for my flourishing Charles I halfcrown collection, this a York Type 1. Bull 550 and from his collection.
  8. And this 1866 Sixpence (courtesy of @Rob), which completes my Victoria YH sixpence 'type' collection:
  9. A couple of newbies to report. First up, this 1838 Shilling, which completes my Victoria YH shilling 'type' collection:
  10. I particularly like the reverse on that one Mick
  11. Latest addition to my Charles I Halfcrown collection, this a Tower Mint type 2c, and my first Harp mint mark
  12. Latest arrival (crown, LIX edge)
  13. Very nice that one, I don't think you have paid too much in today's market
  14. Paulus

    Degree of double strike

    Here's my 'double-struck' shilling as an extreme example
  15. Paulus

    Newly arrived, 1653 halfcrown

    My latest Tower Mint halfcrown, this one lower grade but mm Sun over Eye / Sun and Reverse reads CHRISO AVSPICHE REGNO
  16. Another 1915 halfcrown, I can't resist grabbing decent examples of 1911-19 halfcrowns at a good price
  17. Paulus

    Newly arrived, 1653 halfcrown

    A recent detector find, in the process of finding out more (if there is any more!) Reputable dealer though
  18. Absolutely splendid 1893 and 1920 examples, very well done!
  19. Previously posted in the hammered section, but an acquisition from this week
  20. I often increase the insurance on Special Delivery, I thought the maximum cover with the RM was £2,500? Good value imo, never had to claim so far ...
  21. The latest addition to my Charles I halfcrown collection, this a type 2b. Ex Lingford, Porter, Bull (the plate coin for 127/17)
