  1. I have to say it does have a very similar look. Interesting. Thanks
  2. So a bit of a long shot, and definitely one for all you bronze collectors. I have been going back through my Victoria half pennies and came across this one. A 1862 Half Penny with peculiar obtrusion's from under the F of HALF. I no longer have my microscope as it broke and I haven't got around to getting another, so have spent a good while trying to capture what I can see under a loop. I have also drawn a very crude sketch of what the F should be like and what mine is like. Has anyone seen this before? Is it noted somewhere? Any idea's would be appreciated. Thanks guys
  3. Just starting to pick up nice examples of each type. This is my latest that just dropped through the door this morning.
  4. Haven't been on in a while and have started branching out into the more ancient British coinage. Here is one I got a few weeks back that I am extremely happy with. Corieltauvi Silver half Unit - 1st Century BC - Ref; ABC 1833 ; S400 - Weight: 0.44g Diameter: 11mm -11.8mm - Found in Wragby, Lincolnshire.
  5. So have just been informed the top one was found in England, the bottom one was found in Italy and had been in someone's collection for a long time.
  6. The second was sold a Aulerques (Aulerci) Cenomans AR Denier. It is 10.4 mm to 11.7 mm and weighs 1.24 grams. Would anyone have a reference for this particular coin. Thanks again Brian
  7. This is the first. I have been trawling the internet archives as well as the images of LaTour to pin point this coin. It has an obverse which looks very like the stylised head of the Boar and Eye Potin of the Senones, but after that I really can't say. It weighs 7.1g with a Dia: 16.3 mm - 17.4mm. and is 4.5 mm thick. The picture here shows it in 3 different lights. Thank you.

    Counterstamped Penny - HELP

    Thanks Guys Very much appreciate you taking the time. Agree about the wear on the coin. I will also look into the book. Brian
  10. Here is a one I am looking for help on. It is a counterstamped 1797 Cartwheel Penny. The logo is clearly the Elephant & Castle and very professional for a counterstamp. Any idea's? Has anyone seen one before? Got this off a friend who knew I liked this type of thing so not for sale Thanks all in advance
  11. It was a coin that had been in his fathers collection from the early 1970's. It weighs 11.28 grams is 29.8 mm diameter and 1.9 mm thick. Die numbers 98. It seems to fit nicely in all parameters. If its dodgy it was free
  12. One I was given today off a friend after helping him with his collection. As it was a gift it will stay in my collection indefinitely. The marks on the chin are not very noticeable at all in hand and the photo really doesn't do it justice.

    1981 Circulation Ten Pence

    Took my predecimal florin collection of Eliz II into the large ten pence coins all the way to 1992. I have also been trying to find all of the variants set out in Davies, not an easy task. However I am struggling to get a 1981 Circulation issue. Can anyone help. Thanks
