  1. If I had a hat on I'd take it of for you guys. Incredible how you do it
  2. They're surprisingly common and that's among the worst examples I've ever seen! Keep looking (on UK eBay) and you'll definitely find a much better one for less than £30. As mentioned above, the rarities (which are VERY rare) are the miss-spelt 'PENNEY', the dated 1844 and the all silver examples. There are also lots of micro-varieties, for which there's a book published, should you be interested in researching further. Do you know the name of the book cheers
  3. Im after the 1968 penny they have,got a high secret bid down as will be out of reach on the day,as they say got to be in to win
  4. Yep its back obviously the access point hast been closed

    New Coin Designs For 2014

    The one pound coin is fug ugly
  10. I will order in a month or two, as if a new book arrives at home now i will be shot, as i will get the "we could of got you that for xmas" As for varieties for me its simple,if the design was intentional it counts, if not it dont Date varieties dont count as its not a design change, just a date change
  11. I know its rare but surely there are better coins to spend £3k+ on

  13. You buy the coin,not the slab of plastic it sits in.Its vital to remember that IMHO

    Coin Camera With Database

    All I can say Pies is it's a big old pain in the arse!I'm waiting on the arrival of some 18% grey sheet to start tinkering with my White Balance, as this is the key to professional pictures IMHO! It's certainly where my own photography is suffering! What makes it worse it my dad was a pro photographer for 10 years

    Coin Camera With Database

    This is my set up and i still get rubbish pics .I move it to the natural light when taking a pic and i have a wireless remote.I have tried everything i can to get better pics.
  16. Hers is my 1987 its uin 17141 not only is the date spacing odd but the reverse is about 20 degrees of
  17. Bought this coin today at london coin auctions UIN 17141 From CGS "9.5 teeth from the foot of the 1 sighted along the line of the 7. Note: this date spacing usually only found on the high tide coins" Also what the pics dont show is the die axis is off as well So what do you make of it im confused as i cant find it listed obverse
  18. planning to attend hopefully both days,just some of the cheaper coins though
