    1679 Crown - Is this 3rd or 4th bust?

    I couldn't believe that a replica Cromwell crown was on display for sale in a local antiques bazaar priced at £50 😮 Is that normal? For a replica piece??

    I agree my friend, hence the challenge! I personally love this period in history, and I expect the origin was being in Stuart house at school no doubt. I read daily excerpts from Pepys diary, plus one of my ancestors fought in the civil war, so it's no surprise that I ended up focussing on collecting Charles II coins. It would have been Cromwell coinage, but yeah right! I'm not made of money 🤣 All the best, Weaver (Wayne)

    I agree, and what JLS has taught me is the value of a problem-free coin over a higher grade with issues piece. I would be prepared to pay a little more than book price for a lower grade yet problem-free coin with eye candy appeal, and I'm hoping that my future customers would feel the same way. All the best, Weaver (Wayne)

    Just to totally verify Sword, are you agreeing with Michael that my crown is 3rd bust? Cheers, Weaver (Wayne)

    Many thanks Sword ! I have always been fascinated with this turbulent period in British history, so finding my niche has come quite naturally. Thank you for the guide. JLS on here suggested I buy a copy of Bull's book which I have duly done and await it's arrival. Guess I should wait for book to arrive, but are there many varieties in this series? All the best, Wayne

    Thank you Michael-Roo, I'm still learning to grade accurately, and in the case of this Crown, I was thinking About VF, but I appreciate your assessment. Many thanks! Weaver

    Thank you Michael-Roo What grade would you give it? All the best, Weaver
  10. Hello my friends, So, I have been on a journey of numismatic endeavour to try and finally find my niche, and it's early milled Charles II silver, specifically Crowns and Halfcrowns. Anyway, I need your help please... Is the attached an example of a 3rd or 4th bust of King Charles II ?? And can any of you clever people point me towards a simple guide to distinguishing between them. Your help would be much appreciated. All the best, Weaver
  11. Honestly Sword, I should have been on commission mate! 🤣 But they are seriously useful little coin mats! I've got a nice 1856 Nova Scotia one penny token sitting on it right now! All the best, Weaver (wayne)
  12. Thanks Paddy! I was worrying that I had upset everyone 😂 and maybe those coin mats I recommended a while back were terrible after all 🤣 Appreciate the confirmation Paddy. All the best, Weaver (wayne)
  13. Please don't leave me hanging guys 😂 Just a quick confirmation would be really helpful. Cheers, weaver (wayne)
