    1852 Florin Query

    The database is working for me @Paulus.
  2. Another dip into Hammered coinage for me. Weakly struck but with a stunning tone to it in hand:
  3. For PCGS read NGC.... what get for posting in a rush!
  4. I couldn't believe the prices for items that were fairly common and cleaned.... amazing what people were paying.
  5. It's very quiet in here! Here are a few recent purchases:
  6. I got stung at a Spink auction as well @VickySilver. I bought a group of halfcrowns, including a 1925. It was partially my own fault as they did not show the obverse of the coins. Most were ok but the 1925 had a light X scratched on the bust. I took it as a lesson learned. It is a shame really as the 1925 is a very high grade, scratch aside. It is a shame so many of the DNW coins are cleaned but I am glad they have flagged it before the sale.

    Help And Advice For A Beginner

    Welcome! The best bits of advice I was given when I started were: Buy the book before the coin. Read, read, read if you are serious about collecting. Buy the best grade you can afford of a particular coin. Finally if you buy coins graded by third parties (slabbed coins from LCGS, PCGS, NGC, ANACS to name the mains ones) buy the coin not the slab. That is to say dont let the grade on the plastic deterkine if you feel its a nice coin. Good luck and I hope you enjoy this great hobby!
  8. I bid on a number of lots but I don't think I managed to get any of @Nicks collection
  9. What are the NGC pictures like?
  10. I would need to check Nick. I bought it as a currency issue.
  11. I haven't posted for a while due to my lens breaking and the fact prices are obscene at the moment. Here are a few from over the last few months.
