    Because it is the national broadcaster that we are forced to pay for, on the basis that it stays impartial.

    You don't have to listen to his Twitter feed , there is a disconect button like the off button on a tv  , he never said  anything on live tv about politics , much as i resent his large wage and think there are other equally tallented presenters  he is entitled to his own opinions

    This one I think may also be new the design matches Rogers 751 but I dont yet have it but is 22mm compared with the 1.5 mentioned in Rogers and instead of 1909 it is dated 1907 there are others in the listing following #751 that are also 22mm with a reeded edge ndates 1908 and 19092 and 1911 certainly seems to fit into section 41 it is signed G O

    Does anyone else think it is a shame that Charles III is used in the inscription instead of Carolus III?  Now the inscription is a mixture of English and Latin. Elizabeth doesn't translate to Latin and so there wasn't a choice with the late queen. 

    I find it strange yes but there again Charles is a bit strange.....

    Those model pennies with the muled obverse are always a nice find. There is also a Moore Quarter Farthing with that obverse. I have attached images of my example.

    That’s mad to think that even though the locals would know it was clearly marked, it still circulated!

    I would imagine not for its full face value though

    And the obverse.


    I did have one of those back in the seventies in my collection for only a few weeks it was in worse than fine grade but I love the design its just wonderful

    I ended up selling it to john minshull

  7. Just noted that the 1849 half farthing model is not in any of tony barters books must admit I am surprised there must be less than five or six out there.

    Must be worth a couple of hundred quid I would think .

    By the way if anyone knows tony (Yes I know he has sold his collection) would they like to mention it to him , thanks .

  8. Well its been a year now and it seems a total stalemate between the two sides , I really dread whats going to happen over the next few years as neither side is going to win, it just points to what happened in the second world war happening again , I am just hopeing for a bit of divine intervention and a halt to the fighting .

    One illustrated in a publication. This coin in this case.


    Yes ,a testoon there are very few around these days and  few in good grade a pretty iconic coin really as the price tag shows.

    They tended not to get buried in hoards because they were debased silver , good silver drives out bad.

    Any that circulated circulated till they were like washers

    I see the lucky chimney find is at £37, with 17 bids, and with 6 days still to run. I suspect it likely a few rascals having a bit of fun?

    Poor dear, she's been let down in the past by winning bidders who failed to pay up for her 1933 pennies hasn't she.

    Tsk, you just can't depend on people these days.

    So, fingers crossed this time eh? Told it may be worth around a quarter of a million, so listed on eBay, without reserve, at a starting price of 99p.🤞


    She says that all the money is going to charity but then contradicts with 10% going to charity a pile of BS
