  1. By backward the wrighter might have meant rural and not exposed to modern manufacturing processes. They did invent paper, money and porcelain and many many other things though , too many to list .

    Possible error.

    Not nice to say, but it could be a china forgery artificially aged

    They are more interested in something that sells well as it produces a nice profit for them - they are not interested what happens to the coins , if they are passed on as genuine etc

    Ah that must be where marley bob gets her many many 1933 pennies along with the barely believable stories

    All fakes like these coins being talked about on here turned the American market to slabbing ,I really hope it does not have the same effect here.....

    By the way some of the coins mostly the gold and the bronze penny , halfpenny and farthing are in such good grade they are really stunning they must have been bought by a really serious collector. It must have been a wrench to sell them

    Frank may gave up the job in 1893 so its pretty certain that box does not belong with the 1902 set as their is 15 years difference in date , its more certain that this box had a 1887 0r 1893 set inside IMHO. By the way I would imagine that box and set of rare coins would fetch £700 or so in that grade (Around £20 to £25 a coin) am I guessing right ? It certainly is not one for a collector on a budget I bet the reverend rogers would have loved it

    The box has p. may as the cashier so it should be easy to go back through the old B.O.E. cashiers and work out if its in the 1911 period Simples really

    Recent purchase story.

    The one exception can be that rare variety you find after years of looking and just buy on impulse - you tend to only look carefully when you get home...

    Just to start this thread off again heres a little lovely that I picked up at the last York fair (Friday) Have never seen one like this -its the smallest size and has a grained edge , hopefully someone might know a bit about it , its in lovely grade and I jumped at it for £12 , total bargain in this grade I am sure.

    Great excuse to break it out and let it free , pretty sure a penny is worth much more than a halfpenny anyway
  22. Looks like its been cleaned as well if its a farthing
  23. Well by 1965 or so only 2% or %3 of bronze pennies were victorian bun pennies so it really must have been a long slog.
