    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Made under the rule of Elizabeth the second and not Victoria as well

    If a genuine coin and i cannot see that it's vastly better grade at least near fine

    On the sherberts

    Worth more like $82 while its had little wear the coin appears badly struck and would be difficult to sell in this condition - is this one of the better grading houses in the us or are they "Cowboys"?

  5. one of the best sketches ever

    This of course makes it one of the very few coins with two different dates on it 1848 and 1849

    Would you believe it I have found another "Mule" in my recent buy on ebay. This time its a quarter sov and a half farthing mule struck on a brass flan , really interesting
  11. I once found a G over G farthing in GVF grade for £3 beat that (He says expecting this thread to turn into a four yorkshiremen sketch very soon)

    Both coins are in lowish sort of grades so it would be foolish to say if they were a filled die or not , you would have to find several much higher grade coins to say with any certainty , shows I spotted it as well though doesn't it?

    Just discovered another new variety of Lauer's model coins this time its a Half crown 1897 quite a scarce coin anyway I have both varieties one reads HALF CROWN and the other HALF ROWN in other words the "C" is missing . Anyone any idea if its listed?

    Such interesting coins and from their dates quite late in moore's career I must admit I prefer Moores output to Lauers

    Sounds like a few of the rarities in your collection need airing on here kai , we all need an idea of what to look out for . Funny thing is even though its very rare you would probably only get £15 for it max . Thanks for getting back so quick and also for your great knowledge

    Here's another rare mule model coin I found in a mixed lot As you can see its an Edward double florin which to my knowledge does not even exist in the edward 1902 set anyway it, so I am sure its a mule - anyone with a copy of rogers book could they please check its in there , thanks , Anyway the pics

    Maybe the world will be a better place in the future with Ai Bots putting on ebay listings without the help of humans . Well they could hardly do worse , could they?

    £1 Coin.

    I must say that the decimal coins at least would not be something I would choose to spend my money on , but there again people collect different things don't they? The farthing I would spend money on but there again not a lot ,for what is probably a unique piece.

    They been made with a file?
  20. Oh yes I forgot James I had sir Walter Raleigh executed after a long spell in the tower of london , bet christopher columbus never got the same thing from the spanish monarchy
  21. "The madness of king george" is probably as good a film as you will find in the end you start feeling quite sorry for him
  22. Like buying natwest with public money then the public being sold it back , just cause some narcissist trashed the whole company
  23. yes he remains the only british king to have published a book and its a pile of rubbish . from what I recall witches were only burned in scotland was it (?) the pendle witches not sure how they died but they did and just because they were were old and without husbands . James did like his art though and is responsible for quite a lot of the royal art collection which is owned by the crown which is you and me by the way through the goverment
  24. Yes there were some really bad plantagenet kings , I must admit I was concentrating on more recent kings as it is easier as the older kings and their legacies fade into the past maybe a get out on my behalf
  25. I have little time for people who claim Charles was murdered (Only my opinion by the way ) While he was beheaded he had many times been asked to plead guilty and say sorry and he would be well looked after , he refused to see common sense and carried on with his ridiculous inalienable right of kings defence . He remains a total prima donna and while George IV was probably the worst king we ever had, Charles runs into second place along with his father in third
