    Rare 20p

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

    Little coins big prices

    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.

    Color Flying Scotsman £2 coin

    I'd send it back.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

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

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

    Halfpenny ID check

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

    Halfpenny ID check

    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.

    More Pennies

    Stan Laurel? I thought it was Half Man Half Biscuit. 😆

    Charles III portrait

    Only from the point of view that this is the first coin I have used in a domestic transaction with a monarch other than The Queen. Apart from that it's just as collectible as any other 50p to me. If I come across a commemorative I keep them but I have little interest in modern mint issues. The quality of our coins has taken a real nosedive in the last 20 years. I mean, Paddington? F****** Paddington?

    Let's not forget that this is the second invasion of Ukraine, and that Crimea is theirs and should be returned to them.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Are you kidding? ebay tacitly encourages the selling of fakes by paying no more than lip service to their "policing". They don't care what sells, as long as it sells and they make money.
