  1. Yes. I used a product called Steward. There is more to it than the screen I showed. I also have fields for monarch, date, two photo fields, two reference fields (e.g. ESC), size & weight, obverse details, reverse details, hammered or milled, slabbed or raw, certificate number (if slabbed). I can add any other fields I want.
  2. I think you missed my poor attempt at humour. My database has a field for the auction or dealer a coin has been bought from, the specific auction number or name, date bought, lot number, cost and provenance. There is a separate field titled 'comments'. There is, therefore, plenty of opportunity to document the 'chain'.
  3. I picked up three of your lots. 1860 sixpence 1871 sixpence - no die no. 1887 sixpence - JEB on truncation. In my records I will mark the provenance as 'Nick from Predecimal'.
  4. DNW haven't done you any favours in their descriptions. No mention of the varieties.
  5. I know, limited funds are always the problem. There are so many coins that interest me and especially the varieties. I think the trick is to focus on the ones you really really want and go hard for them. And, of course, if you get everything in one go then there is nothing left for subsequent purchases.
  6. Fortunately, I already have an 1869 sixpence (Die #12, trivial scuffing, lightly toned on obverse) which I bought in the Willis sale at Glendinnings in 1991. So, Eric, go for it.
  7. You will be fighting me for a few of them. 😘 I have identified 11 coins in the March sale that are of interest to me and four that are 'must haves'.

    Charles II Hammered Penny

    Thanks for that. So milled and not hammered. Bull has it listed as Maundy while Rayner simply says known as 'undated Maundy'. I was looking in the wrong place.
  9. Need a bit of help here. I'm trying to work out which ESC this penny is and not having much luck:
  10. I'm tracking several lots. So far, prices on them aren't ridiculous although what happens tomorrow remains to be seen.
  11. I was watching that auction. I had four lots in my 'cabinet', two of which I would have bid on. However, the prices went way above what I was willing to pay for the two coins. I will be interested in what happens in the Heritage auction tomorrow and whether US prices go the same way.
  12. I pay no attention to the 'finest known' guff. However, that tends to be put out by the auction houses rather than the TPG when trying to talk up a coin.
