    1936 missing from Peck?

    After quite a few months of searching, I have managed to get hold of a copy of Peck for a very reasonable price. First impressions are very good; A lot of information and the plates are superb. One thing I noted while flicking through was 1936 being missed for penny, halfpenny and farthing. Has anyone else noticed this? It's not an issue, I have a copy of Freeman to reference bronze.

    1936 missing from Peck?

    Ah! I couldn't understand how such a common year had been missed! Thanks.

    I've no ideas

    I think the date reads VS1977 (1920).. which would make it KM 690.1?
  12. How do I get hold of a hard copy of the catalogue?

    Is this a good buy?

    I bought a 5kg of mixed copper/bronze for around £30 a while back, it kept me busy for a month or two. Managed to take what I wanted and sell the rest on for a small profit. £75 for 15kg seems reasonable to me, more so if you can check them out in person beforehand.

    I have missed another Kew gardens 50p

    Sounds like a sensible plan, it's the only bugger I'm missing, all the others I've picked from circulation and reluctant to pay silly money for it.

    I have missed another Kew gardens 50p

    I think this is the key point here, if you put down the maximum you're prepared to pay, you won't be disappointed. Are you being outbid by a lot?
  17. Charlie

    I keep getting outbid for a Victoria coin

    I always hold off until the last 30 seconds, then bid the maximum I'm willing to pay. You win some, you lose some, there's plenty of pennies around. Be patient and you'll get one at the right price.

    Victorian coin defacement

    You'd think it would just bend, although it does mention the coin being cracked beforehand.

    Can be an interesting denomination to collect. Quite a few minor varieties for the threepences. If you haven't already, a copy of Davies may come in handy.

    Can I pass my grading exam...pt. 2

    At a guess I'd say 6-700, they're in a tin under my bed separate to my main collection. Inevitably they'll remain there, I havnt got the heart to get rid of them, I should think he'd been picking them out of change for years.
