    Ed I penny Bristol

    Hi all After a period of abstinence from English coins (thanks to Brexit) I've finally found a nice penny to buy from a French dealer. Edward I , Penny from Bristol. I have just some doubts on the proper class, I would say 2b but I am not 100% sure...I hope you can help me

    Gadoury auction 16th April

    This is an interesting auction with some tokens I would like to bid on, but shipping costs are quite important ... I live around 180 Km far from Monaco, and pay 25 € seems to be quite unfair.

    1864 Queen Victoria shilling

    I think that it's just the result of a slight shift during the struck procedure, in fact also the ": F" have the same feature
  8. I report this new publication about the Italian coins in the British Museum that maybe can be of your interest to. The Italian Coins in the British Museum - Volume 1: South Italy | Edizionidandrea
  9. I am curious to see the catalog of the Tony Abramson Collection of Dark Age Coinage, do you know if the auction has been postponed?
  10. Maybe a dealer who was offering on commissions

    Help ID Scottish coin

    Thank you Paddy I guess you're right, I thought that price could be high too ... Even if it seems that the coins was sold (but they are a great dealer). In any case the date 1603 seems to be quite hard to find compared to the 1601 and 1602. I tried to see on the traditional online archives like acsearch or sixbid's archive and I found just an other 1603 quarter merk sold by DNW with two 1/8 merk 1062 in 2017.

    Edward VIII penny for sale

    You know their market better than me so I guess you're right ... I think that probably today both coins could be sold to a higher amount due to the fact that the numismatic market has grown a lot during last years and even months.
