    A comparison of two auction houses

    I have to disagree with this. It is possible to negotiate (sometimes to zero) the seller's premium with some auction houses, in which case the seller gets the hammer price and the auction house covers its costs through the buyer's premium (commission).

    I got confused - I believe that he is Guy Fornquerne (or Guy Fie) from the Coinery Auction.

    I don't think so.

    Any garden pics this year?

    I didn't realise that these animals live in Telford - that's gnus to me.

    Is this Penny F8B?

    Because F763 is scarce rather than rare, I've just included one example of both A+b and A1+b rather than every example I've seen.

    Is this Penny F8B?

    Absolutely (I omitted the ** by mistake). Gouby A where R & E of REG touch at base.

    Is this Penny F8B?

    I think it's a F763 (1+B) but I've been staring at it for hours.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    That's the second time he's taken it down - probably hoping that no-one will notice.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I've just tried to report it to Ebay but got switched to a Police Action Fraud site - they're obviously not going to bother with something like this.

    But, as Jerry says, it's back again.

    1862 penny with 6/6

    Yes, I use Arcsoft which is very simple to use to reduce the "density" of the image from 1-100%.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I also messaged him yesterday saying that I was going to contact Ebay today. The combination seems to have worked.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Another Chinese fake. These are appearing much more frequently. I've emailed him but he's ignored me. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/394980540821?hash=item5bf6acc195:g:BG4AAOSwhUZlR9TA&amdata=enc%3AAQAIAAAA0LToAQl%2Bv5lruS1VjgEBdalvLMF%2BqEkIIY7gbS7fpOGc9YC72%2BSTmpJlLO%2F0hmkF95zWFedv7giPVEq2I60cDDws6qptmTtUcJaSQ6dQ7G%2B5eG4N%2FoWHyQS8FjdTx70b34Cu638eituxW%2Fsp%2FMY0aXUxIEXcJ85YjWVGJvlbv75v4kYxrzJjx5qfFJC5tqKCuBwBjvDa0lPfulufuMiqy5Jqy%2BZabc22Icg8d4uA2ZG763NR7xohWZTb2fv1d4uKwwxofaEhY9qfczZ%2BXyvzpFc%3D|tkp%3ABk9SR67zs5r0Yg

    Mine is very similar - very clever, although there seems to be signs of activity.

    And he's taken it down again.
