    Grading British Coins by Allen

    How about a fiver and you keep the other two?

    Is that the colour one?

    Stuff to Make Us Laugh

    It's written on the left of the reverse. The 9 looks like a g but if it was fully struck up it would be a 70.

    It would leave bulk lots bereft of any "finds".

    Question on Teutoburger Münzauktion actions

    I like live auctions or the set ending time of ebay. 24 hours is way too long to think about bidding a bit more, which is why people do it. I don't participate in those.

    so sad

    It is terribly sad. I like to think he got to 99 and thought: "Righto, time to get myself a send off. A bit of fundraising, a knighthood and national hero status should be doable."

    Question on Teutoburger Münzauktion actions

    I have a feeling that DNW would start at bottom estimate rather than 90%, but I don't know why I think that.
  8. It looks like grease to me, but the affected area is unusually large. I was hoping someone here might have bought it so I could have a better look.
  9. I was watching it in case it went cheaply, but missed the end of the auction. I'd have only bid a tenner or so anyway so wouldn't have won it.
  10. Did anyone here pick this up? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/gb-1799-halfpenny-/265032338120?nma=true&si=V6eenPJPFgWwXezgiSCzzy8pf%2B0%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    Question on Teutoburger Münzauktion actions

    Interesting that they would start at 90% of estimate if no other bid. Can anyone tell me how (for example) LCA or DNW would work in the same situation?

    Thanks both.

    Nicholson I checked because I know where to find it (although he didn't seem to collect much rang tang ). Never heard of Samuel - can I view that collection somewhere? And thanks.

    More Pennies

    I don't have that problem, if I'm not eating food I'm growing food. Anyway, while I have your attention and completely off topic here but I believe you had a half decent collection of halfpennies? I'm looking for more examples of the F264 - can you point me in the right direction to any you know of please? I can find more with a die letter than I can this.

    More Pennies

    I think that's brilliant. I didn't have an inkling of the extent of your library until your recent posts on another forum. The information you command at will, quite frankly, does my head in. I have trouble remembering what I had for breakfast.

    More Pennies

    And more to the point @Rob, do you assume that about all your books? I think it's safe to say you've got a few I haven't.
  17. The ones leading upwards from the bottom of the I and S of GEORGIUS look as though they might be raised, to me.

    Halfpenny ID check

    I thought I'd see how my F264 compares to others out there. Well, I would if I could find any. "Worthpoint", whatever that is, has a picture of a green one that was on ebay but no further info without signing up. None at LCA or DNW that I can see. Can anyone point me to past auctions for this one please? I'm probably just not looking in the right place. Cheers.

    VICTGRIA halfpenny?

    It's a pretty weird G? Very long middle bit.

    Halfpenny ID check

    About time I got lucky with a punt - I couldn't ID it from the seller's group photo so pretty pleased.
