    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    And he's taken it down again.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I looked at it closely in hand but could never be sure how they did it.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    But he's now relisted it with no mention of an altered date. How does one contact Ebay to tell them it's a forgery ?

    The waves are well above the double line variety.

    He's now taken it down after I emailed him.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I sold this coin to John Spring a few years ago and, when it appeared on Ebay recently I emailed the seller to tell him it was a forgery, a doctored 1853 penny. I believe he must have sold it to Torcoins who are now trying to sell it as genuine. Ebay should be told.
  7. Rob You were too quick off the mark - I amended it immediately to remove your name.
  8. More interestingly, the 1862 with A to left of lighthouse has no rocks. Not true.

    Stuff to Make Us Laugh

    I put this little cartoon up as I and my peer group found it amusing. Looks like it's time to leave this forum.

    Re the discussion about 1909 F169 examples 20 and 21 being the same coin, the supplier of the picture of number 20 says that they are not..... But that vertical line does look similar.........

    I've just received the catalogue and it deserves to be prized as a very well illustrated set of coins.

    I've had a reply but the owner of example 20 sold it to Dave Craddock who may or may not have put it in to LCA. So, the jury's still out.

    The Bronze Coinage of Great Britain (2016)

    John Jerrams did introduce a new set of identifying numbers (Satin number) in his Bun Penny book but they are very rarely referenced.

    The Bronze Coinage of Great Britain (2016)

    You're right - Chris Perkins did once say that he was considering a total re-write which could involve updating/amending Freeman identifiers (F numbers) but without a "governing body" to adjudicate on such things, I think that the F numbers should be left unchanged.

    I can't make up my mind, but I've emailed the guy who sent me the pics of example 20 to ask if he put it into LCA's sale.

    Yes, Noonans are claiming their lot 527 is the same one you refer to (Gregory lot 258) in terms of the provenance.

    It's a pity that the catalogue doesn't contain a narrative description of Philip Richardson and his collection.

    The rarest coin you own?

    Have you posted details of these in the past ?

    Coin prices continue to rise

    Sadly, I don't own it - I got the pictures from the Spink sale.

    Coin prices continue to rise

    Just to tease you:
  22. This same person also advertised a (non) 1862 8 over 6 and another spurious dot coin recently - avoid him like the plague.

    Yes, that's why they don't want to list Medusa. I've now pointed out to them that it's not really a pattern - there are only circulated specimens in existence, whereas genuine patterns tend to survive in near FDC condition.
