  1. Yes lots of people actually threw these coins away (Probably after a few attempts to pass the coin off as genuine) This accounts for the grottyness of many of the coins What do you do if you get stitched up with a fake £20 these days (my guess would be to try and pass it off first but if that don't suceed rip it up in disgust They are a very common detector find.

    Kew Gardens 50P Hype

    depends on if banks order them . the goverment does not plan to just issue a small number of coins , it just happens that because of low demand not many are made - its the same in the states

    Kew Gardens 50P Hype

    I think the dailly mail is very wrong to think there are 200000 or so of these coins in circulation , most have been pulled out of circulation long ago i think there is probably only 25 000 or so in circulation now I bet you would have to hunt through £50 000 of 50p coins to stand an even money chance of getting one

    Good Fine Mule £875 Any Takers?

    That's a good price it would not have fetched £100 eight or so years ago
  11. I see the mule farthing has decreased in price , at this rate it should fetch the £150 or so it is worth by the time christmas comes along

    1772/1 Halfpenny

    well , yes forgeries and evasions would outnumber the genuine coins . Forgeries on their own would probably not, as you say, though they made up a very significant amount of the coinage back then

    1772/1 Halfpenny

    Many contemporary forgeries of george III halfpennies have blundered dates n's reversed or letters out of alignment ect The forgeries of george ii halfpennies indeed outnumber the genuine artical normally, so it ia actually rarer to find a worn genuine george iii halfpenny

    i doubt it ,he prefers uncollectable coins
  18. A very customer friendly option and i would love to see more companies act like this - the only thing is it might make you bid just a little too much knowing you did not have to pay straight away

    Grading And A Pricing Query

    spink are quite expensive on their 1797 prices when you come into the real world you find they are quite a bit cheaper. this is not the only coin they over or under price it's done regular throughout the catalogue. no publication it totally accurate , so you have to give a bit of leeway. probaby searching compleated listings on ebay gives a better idea of value
  24. My guess would be that some short sighted old git had been rumageing around in a 20p box in a local collectors fair and had left it in his pocket by mistake. Immediate loss for him and a thrill for your missus , if you pardon the expression
