  1. If sold it should go under the title of "Experimental CN test coin unknown value" that would be the most honest title.

    I must admit that Britannia making all the coins personally brings a smile to my face.

    But of course ours are much weaker than theirs. Some barely register at all. I doubt if we've ever had an F3 - probably F2 maximum. 

    Possibly the strongest tornado to ever hit the UK, was the one which started in Buckinghamshire and travelled about 60 miles to somewhere in Cambridgeshire, on 21st May 1950. That caused a lot of damage with uprooted trees, sheds and greenhouses ruined, and cars overturned. Luckily it was a Sunday morning and there was nobody about when some scaffolding collapsed into the street. 

    You were just unlucky to cop for a shower at that specific time..

    Just like dorothy and Toto

  3. The truth is if you yourself are convinced its a special strike then bid a bit extra for it , it can never be proved if it is, or isn't, but if you yourself can see a reason to bid extra for it then there has to be others out there that would belive the same .

    Personally I would never pay a masive premium for one of these coins but hey,  I am not the whole of the English collecting public am I?

  4. I think pretty much all of the money people in russia are quaking in their boots and hopeing they get through till a new leader arrives , I surpose they just resign themselves to the fact that enjoying their life and money might cost them their lives .

    There were much worse in the past like Stalin his "Enemies" ended into the millions in fact he starved the Ukraine and more or less ruined the russian breadbasket as it was known then .

    The above murder is pretty easy to solve if their was only two people in the flat , I do suspect it will be brushed under the carpet though .

  5. That oligarth insurance against falling out of windows must cost a bit_____

    A Russian bank official has died after plummeting from a tall window of her Moscow apartment.

    Kristina Baikova, 28, who was the vice-president of Loko Bank, fell out of the apartment window on Khodynsky Boulevard on the evening of June 23.

    Tragically, she died on the scene as a result of her injuries.

    She is said to have been spending time with a friend called Andrei, 34, who was with Kristina on the eleventh floor.

    He claims that Kristina contacted him asking him to come for a drink before he "went out onto the parapet and fell down", BAZA reports.

    Recent events in Russia have raised fears of looming assassination attempts after Yevgeny Prigozhin sought to wage a mutiny against the military leadership in the Kremlin.

    The great coronation rip-off in full swing.. some joker wants £20,000 for the Charles 2022 50p (it's not even a proof!), and someone else £17,000-.. makes Coincraft look cheap!

    I got one for £1 BU as well

  7. Hey there some of us have only a couple of these coins - it would be great if a full or near full set appeared in pics on here so that I knew what I was looking for.

    My Dracunculus vulgaris has flowered this year but instead of the usual 1 flower we have 5, 4 are now open and the stinking of rotting meat is terrible if you get within a couple of feet! 🤢😁


    Replace with night scented stocks - they are much nicer esp in august - really easy to grow as well...
