    1912 penny

    Found some 25p (crowns) and masonic tokens in a house I was clearing nearly 15 years ago , have been an addict since then.the hours I have spent trawling car boots, collectors fairs and the internet in that time isn't worth thinking about.

    My Latest Acquisition

    Latest purchase ,one gap less to fill .its been cleaned, but the price was right for such a hard to find coin.

    My Latest Acquisition

    Latest upgrade to my penny collection .Quite pleased for less than £14 .not the greatest pic ,best I can manage with my phone.
  6. Not an overly exciting purchase, but got an 1935 and 1937 crown from ebay .thanks to a dodgy listing (heading pic of the obverses and no mention of crown anywhere on the listing ) Cost me the grand total of £4 .Straight back on ebay and sold both for £24 , then bought a very nice 1892 penny (close to UNC)for £18+postage . So I got my penny for -£4 .A bit of a bargain LOL

    Enthusiasm for collecting has stalled...

    I still have 95 % of my collection. I had sold on most of my early milled copper, hammered , silver crowns and 1904,1905 and 1887 halfcrowns. I have already replaced the 1887 onwards crowns (except the wreaths) and some low- mid grade copper and hammered. I had started upgrading my bronze pennies before I stopped ,so i might continue with that and filling gaps . hard to do on a tighter budget than i had before .

    Enthusiasm for collecting has stalled...

    I have just started back up collecting coins after a 6 year break .got a bit bored because the ones i needed to fill gaps or upgrade were beginning to be more expensive and harder to get . Unfortunately in the time i stopped collecting i sold my 1887 yh, 1887 jh, 1904 and 1905 half crowns which i regret now , but bills needed paid . I had to collect something in that time so went onto Notgeld . 3-4 thousand notgeld later ,I have went back to my coins . I had actually forgot about some of the pennies i had amassed when i was collecting .
