    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Read again. She's asking a pound a pop simply to divulge what the rarity is. No actual coins for sale.

    What's the betting it's the four legged tripod? The mint have already confirmed this isn't a mistake but the designer's personal interpretation.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    She's sold quite a few of these in recent months. A quick search is all it takes to find them available for a few pounds each. I note the bizarre fake toning appears to have gone out of fashion...

    Agreed. Oh, and happy new year to you too Stu. Long time no see etc.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Unauthenticated-1933-george-v-bronze-type-penny-gap-filler-dirty-bent-read-all/124513709632?hash=item1cfd986e40:g:I4cAAOSwYBRf8Z6b Last time she had one (Just last year wasn't it? What are the odds??? Er, none whatsoever.), didn't it come to her in a Whitman folder of pennies she'd bought at a jumble in the same church? So that's twice she's suggested she may have their valuable penny but still happy to offer it for sale on Ebay. Oh, and I see it appears she's now out of rare Indian silver coins. Plod should knock and have a word.

    Stuff to Make Us Laugh

    Apologies. I wanted to upload an image but there was a problem doing so and the empty post I can't now delete. This is a problem I've noticed here in the past. Anyway, here's the image again…..

    1697 William III Sixpence RFX for REX?

    Yup. Works for me.

    1697 William III Sixpence RFX for REX?

    Yes Chris, what I thought too. Look at the foot of the 'F' in RFX. To the left tapered while to the right cut off short at sharp right angles. Also, the middle and upper horizontal bars match those of the E punch used elsewhere in the legends. Further, the RFX 'F' doesn't match the F in FRA. Still, nice find all the same.

    Elizabeth Half Groat on CCF.

    Unusual. https://www.coincommunity.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=385496

    Elizabeth Half Groat on CCF.

    That certainly does look to be a likely candidate. The size would probably match too.

    Elizabeth Half Groat on CCF.

    I'm loving this. It's what my end of the hobby is all about. I thought the CCF post worth sharing here and, as usual, Rob kicks off with a spot on observation. The word 'unique' is so often used incorrectly but if a coin is an only known (or, to date, noticed) surviving example of a die does 'unique' apply?
  15. Michael-Roo

    Elizabeth Half Groat on CCF.

    Yes, I've just read that over on the other forum. A most unusual little coin.

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Dear god, was that really worth the effort? I haven't a calendar in front of me but doesn't British Pedant Day fall in Julember? Switch it off and come down now Timmy, dinner's ready.

    Or possibly thread. Interchangeable I suppose. They're certainly the best chuckle Ebay have offered me today.
