    I still favour the E/B based on the little pointy bit here:

    The US "unique" - i.e. ten a penny.

    The rarest coin you own?

    This horror I think.

    Coin prices continue to rise

    I remember an Estonian decathlete called Erki Nool which to me sounded distinctly like a sports injury.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I once asked him about a 1797 penny, which he immediately relisted for £100 more than it was advertised for.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I've always thought torcoins was a complete shyster. Exorbitant prices for genuine coins, but this does take the biscuit.

    Thank you. If I'd read the article properly I'd have seen that 1875 obverse 11 is only paired with J2.

    Dracott reverse J# or J2 please? Britannia's eye does seem to be recessed but I'm unconvinced by the date - width seems right for J2 but the numerals aren't as thin as I would expect.
