    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1842-Shilling-VF-or-better-/271152448797?pt=UK_Coins_BritishMilled_RL&hash=item3f21f2051d Cant get that to VF
  3. I would class a mule as an error,it wasn't intended,but as quite a few got minted before anybody noticed or cared to repair the die numismatics have decided this counts as a variety as there are a few to collect
  4. Surely a variety was intended by the manufacture where as an error is not
  5. sorry id rather spend the money on something which looks a bit better
  6. Sorry but what do u think of this 1905 fooled me before it was dipped not that i owned it http://www.predecimal.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=6753&st=0&p=65869&hl=+1905%20+shilling&fromsearch=1entry65869
  7. Cheers all I know its not the proof set I've learnt that much
  8. I missed out on a BU 1905. Had a great strike as well. Went for £103 my max was £100 which i thought was top end

    Wanted: 2007 Royal Mint Baby Edition

    Can't find one being minted in 2007 http://www.royalmint.com/discover/uk-coins/circulation-coin-mintage-figures/2007-dated-uk-collector-coin-sales
  10. I think both your 1906 & 7 are definitely better than average. The reverses of mine are truly awful, with typically shallow relief and very little detail to Britannia. Every now and then I look for something better, in fact I think there may be one on eBay at the moment, but haven't got around to upgrading yet. Paws
  11. Anyway we shouldnt be talking about Eddies pennies till monday there mine (hopefully)

    1865/3 Penny

    Such a tiny thing to spot
  14. I was the under bidder on the 1894 which went to the person a dealer i think,who bought most of the good stuff more fish in the sea so i bought a cheap florin of Derek
  15. I woud like to know the percentage of auctions won with bids in first minute compare to bids in last seconds

    Auction hoses postal charges,one recently wanted to charge me £5 postage plus £5.90 special delivery for a one penny coin
  17. The advantage of the sniper is you stop people rebidding.I see it constantly on ebay,this coin is an example of people coming back to rebid.Just about anything of quality on ebay is won with a snipe bid
  18. Close call ~ bad luck !!! edit: may have been a tactical error on your part to show your hand so early. I bet if you'd put in a last few seconds snipe you'd have got it at a much lower price. No doubt c***r made a manual snipe with 4 seconds to go. You're right.... But I was out for dinner and I can't really sit in a restaurant bidding If you use a sniper,Goofbay has a free one, set ur bid days in advance to snipe in last 5 secs
