    1837 and 1845 pennies

    I thought after getting the 1843 , 49 and 56 ,they would be easier . I did see a few 1837's , but they were either high grade (and out of my price range) or went for more than I thought they were worth . I was 2nd bidder 3 times in a row on ebay (at over £70) for ones that were less than fine , but of a grade I could live with.Book price of a Fine 1845 is £15 , but that is highly unrealistic .I will hopefully get one about Fine for £50-60 .........eventually .
  2. Top four are boxed . 2 green , 2 burgundy .Last one is from a proof set .I had a couple of dozen , but kept 4 because of the different box types .Matchbox type and lift off lid ,in each colour .Looks like verd on the proof set one , but it must be my photographic skills as it isn't visible on the coin itself .
  3. I have dug my four boxed ones out .Looking at the dragons wing webbing alone .One has all the webbing .one is missing a part of a section , one is missing a full section and the other is missing 2 sections .I will stick pics up when I get a chance .

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    £440 .Decent example https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/COIN-UNITED-KINGDOM-ONE-PENNY-BRITANNIA-EDWARD-Vll-BRONZE-1909-/154328988309?hash=item23eeb97a95%3Ag%3ARxkAAOSwagJgJqJA&nma=true&si=zGNhOPeEfsB5VMffTHlQjngAylU%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Having a look on Richards site . The hand on rev D has more pronounced knuckles on the front , rev E it seems to be more of a straight line . Also the r/h/s trident prong on D points to a gap , but on E it points to a tooth .The hand difference would probably be noticeable on coins with more wear ,but if you can't tell whether the 1 points to a tooth , it is doubtful you could work out where the trident is pointing .

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    It wasn't a type I had , so had a quick look on ebay for newly listed buy it nows . There was 2 within the first dozen . One quite worn , but the other was better , but not as nice as yours .Less than a fiver ,so not a hard decision .
  8. A cheap ebay purchase to fill a gap (didn't actually have an F10) .T over T in Victoria .Michael Gouby mentions it in his book , but on a different Obverse (F15, obv 4 ).After reading this, I am confused about whether it is an F10 or 15 . LC WYON on Truncation seems to rule out F15 though .

    More Pennies

    Didn't know it was a member . I like to keep a watch on these sort of things .Even if it is just to find out how much they end up going for .(usually well outwith my budget lol )

    Various rarer Freeman and Gouby varieties for sale...

    They might have done better sold separately , but might not have been worth the extra hassle. They may be low grade , but it is an easy way to fill a few gaps in one go .

    Various rarer Freeman and Gouby varieties for sale...

    There is a few I am missing , but some I have (like the 7 over 7, 2mm and bisecting 8).I will keep an eye on it, and the very least bid it up a bit lol.

    2021 Unc set mystery

    I have seen that the packaging error on the sets is a spelling mistake .Televison instead of television for the Logie Baird coin .
