Hi everyone. I haven't posted here for a while- in fact I haven't bought a coin in over two years. I collect Early Milled Silver mostly, especially the Georgian period. I'm now wishing to 'get back on the saddle' so to speak, but as a student (going back to college next autumn after taking the year out), as you can imagine cash flow is a slight problem, especially when collecting early milled as opposed to the often more affordable Victorian coinage, for example. I always adhere to the rule of buy the best condition you can afford. Looking at my scant collection (albeit with a handful of very nice coins indeed), I often find myself thinking 'this is a hobby for old retirees with money to spend, i'm wasting my time here' LOL! I have thought about narrowing down, ie. rather than trying to collect sixpences, shillings, halfcrowns and crowns, just concentrating on one of those denominations for the time being. Anyone have any advice?
Hi all, Thinking about purchasing this coin which the seller describes as AEF - Id just like to ask people on here their opinions on the grade because ive been caught out before with over graded coins. Opinions on toning etc much appreciated also, seems to be quite a dark tone on this coin. Thanks, c44
Hi all, https://postimg.org/image/42brl18it/ This is a coin that has been in my collection for a little over a year now, and I have been puzzled about these circular scratches on this rather nice William and Mary Shilling. They are perfect and get bigger the closer they are to the rim- its the same on the reverse. I originally thought it may be some sort of a mint error, but I am doubtful about this, as on the ebay listing (Calm down, don't worry, a well known BNTA dealer- youll probobally know who from the style of listing photograph) the scratches, although apparent in the photo, were not described at all, although the coin was incorrectly sold to me as an 'unrecorded 3 over 0' type (its 1693), which I cannot see- im not accusing the seller of foul play but it seems to me as he was trying to nab a few more quid for it, possibly to make up for the scratches? Anyway id appreciate if anyone could tell me what they are and do they affect its value? One more point to note: they weren't made yesterday as its apparent that these are old scratches, Thanks, Conor
