    1886 Queen Victoria shilling

    Yes bud it was in beside some detecting finds i bought. I just thought it would be silver all the way through. It looks like the silvering has come off in a thin layer.

    coin toneing

    I,ve aquired this 1696 Bristol mint William III Sixpence with a small x in REX. Beautiful tone on one side but absolutely none on the reverse.

    Another fake seller. This listing finished last night along with another three. He still has two listings to sell. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SILVER-DENARIUS-OF-JULIUS-CAESAR-ELEPHANT-3-65-g-VERY-RARE/123139771645?hash=item1cabb3ccfd:g:DpAAAOSw2VFa9sOJ

    I,ve never read as much rubbish in my life to explain away a fake, just like the rest of his coins.https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ancient-Greek-Celtic-Silver-BC-Coin-Big-Nose-Guy-Crazy-Horse-Celtic-Era-Coin-I/202306200370?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

    This looks more brass than silver. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1758-George-II-sterling-silver-sixpence-6d-coin-2-8g/142775269049?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

    This sellers Roman coins are under suspicion too. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ancient-Greek-Celtic-Silver-BC-Coin-Big-Nose-Guy-Crazy-Horse-Celtic-Era-Coin-I/202306200370?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3De3b4df2bf54d4dcdaed45b1e9db83978%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D3%26sd%3D202306200370%26itm%3D202306200370&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507

    It has certainly not got the sharpness to the lettering and the eye looks wrong too. All in all it looks rather flat compared to the coin on the left. I,ve bought from this guy in the past and never had any problems. But I would pass on this coin.

    Not too sure about this one, the hair looks odd. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/QUEEN-ANNE-MAUNDY-FOURPENCE-1710/123105658706?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D4000648b1c36420e883be908a1fa7f79%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D192521966112%26itm%3D123105658706&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507

    Was there more than one variant of thec1913 George V shilling? The 3 on this one looks massive. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/semi-Key-date-1913-shilling-in-very-fine-condition-clear-legends-and-date/152990713103?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649
