    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    If real ,then it is a good buy .I bidded up to £70 (didnt think for a minute I would have a chance ) , but without being 100% on the 1850 ,I was only bidding on the other 3. It was the die crack on the reverse that concerned me .For such a scarce coin ,I would have expected to find other examples with the same flaw .I did think it would go for about the £1000 mark though.

    On first inspection it does look ok (I'm no expert though).It me be that he is bidding it up till he gets a high enough price ,and hasn't reached it yet .

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    It has the same trefoil / heart stamp that was on (I think) the fake 1562 lizzy halfgroats and Henry VIII halfgroats ?

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Am I missing something . http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/George-Silver-Proof-Crown-1951-Beautiful-Unc-/232480269216?hash=item3620e763a0:g:QNoAAOSwoRBZsSeo our friend lukasz again ,with his dodgy descriptions.
  11. I already offered £65 for it LOL .Don,t know how much it is approximately worth ,but I saw one that was described as near Fine sell at auction for £1100 (think it was LCA ).And this one is much better than that one .I do wish it was mine .
  12. I was asked to look at a friends pics of a penny he has ,I have came to the conclusion (rightly or wrongly) that its an F9 BB/TB penny .any help would be greatly appreciated .
  13. pity its not mine .the owner bought it a couple of years ago as a beaded border for £30 ,which would still be a great price .

    Slabbed Potter

    Almost EF would be more like it .pricewise (still seems a bit steep ,if it was MS64) He seems to be selling the slab with its grading ,rather than the coin inside .He does have some really nice coins .
  16. Some help required from the hammered buffs out there .Another hammered that I am having trouble identifying (really need to get a book )A bit beat up but has a lot of decent detail .

    Mint error tom kitten

    Never even thought of it being a die clash .There are so many of them ,floating about the FB forums that I wrongly thought it was a ghosting design flaw .The last few years ,the RM's quality control has been nearly non existant .
