    I was looking too today. Some strong prices for some indifferent material at times and really difficult to buy for stock. 

    The shilling is only 1250 book in fine, and that one's struggling to get there. On the plus side, mine must make me a millionaire, Rodney :)


    Ok obverse is not nice but reverse is very acceptable

    No problem. A copy did come up on eBay a few weeks ago but has since sold or been ended. Think it was up for about £200.

    Yes I was watching it and annoyingly enough it just disappeared 

  3. Thanks for the info Kai good information is hard to come buy on the internet  it really is annoying not having a copy of Rogers.


  4. *American journalist goes to Afghanistan in 2000. Everywhere he goes he sees men walking ten feet in front of women. He asks an Afghani guy about it, the guy responds, "this is our culture, where men are superior to women, and that is why they must walk behind us." Journalist shrugs and goes back to US.
    Five years later, in 2005, same journalist goes back to Afghanistan. Everywhere he goes he now sees women walking ten feet IN FRONT of men. Journalist gets really excited, goes to talk to an Afghani guy. "This is an amazing cultural shift, and step toward gender equality!" journalist says. "What prompted this change?"
    Afghani guy shrugs. "Landmines"

    Are those three pence coins a smaller size to the shillings or are my eyes playing tricks on me? The penny looks quite large as well

  7. I bought a mixed lot off ebay recently and amongst them was this little coin made by moore around 1849 presumably for export over the pond  its in a small size and features a gothic head of victoria with a crown on and calafornia half dollar on the reverse not sure if this is listed in rogers butn I know there are other similar mules as I have one.

    I also inclue a picture of the regular large size half dollar that is much more common for reference.

    Hope someone with a copy of roger's book can help



  8. Butt of the joke: Australian man suffers severe burns to his bottom and genitalia after firework party trick backfires

    Firecracker: The young man placed the firework between his cheeks and lit the fuse

    Firecracker: The man placed the rocket between his cheeks and lit the fuse

    An Australian man has been hospitalised with severe burns after placing a firework between his buttocks in a party trick gone awry.

    The 23-year-old man was attending a party in a suburb to Darwin in the Northern Territory on Saturday, when he decided to brighten up the evening.

    The stunt, quite literally, backfired and the man was taken to local hospital with severe burns to his back, cheeks and genitalia. Police said alcohol was ’a possible factor’.

    ‘It appears a party was in full progress when a young male decided to place a firework between the cheeks of his bottom and light it,’ Senior Sergeant Garry Smith with Northern Territory Police said.

    ‘What must of seemed to be a great idea at the time has backfired, resulting in the male receiving quite severe and painful burns to his cheeks, back and private bits.’

    When police arrived at the party in the suburb, ironically named Rapid Creek, the man was writhing in pain but was able to get to hospital without the aid of paramedics.

    Yes, I'm conscious that I'm telling the manufacturers of these coins where they need to improve although that assumes that they're trying to produce absolute copies, which I'm not sure is true. 

    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

  10. 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
