  1. I inherited a 19th century silver ladle with a coin-mounted bowl. I have identified the coin as a Charles I shilling, but beyond that I am not able to discern the year or any other identifying elements that would allow me to get a sense of its worth. The coin has been pressed into the ladle bowl, marring the face. Anyone out there with an eagle eye who can make a guess about the vintage? Also, were these coins made with 900 silver? Happy to provide additional photos if necessary. Many thanks for any assistance! Erika
  2. I recently acquired this Charles I sixpence. It was sold as a coin of the Dovey Furnace mint (i.e. Spink 2910 !!), but as it lacks the Aberystwyth plumes, and given the price I got it at, I assume it is a Tower mint coin. The obverse bust looks similar to Sharp E5/2 for the shillings...the "neat Aberystwyth bust"; the crown mintmark is different to that which I've seen before for the Tower mint coinage - anyone got any ideas ? Thanks for looking !

    Charles I Tower Mint Hammered Shillings

    I know I don't post on here very much these days, so most people are probably unaware I collect the above shillings. And sadly I have reached a stage in my collecting where my fussiness about 'eye appeal' makes adding anything new a challenge. However I'm always interested in new dealers, sites or potential acquisitions, so if anyone spots a nice looking example of a Chas I shilling, I'd be happy to hear about it. Particularly as I don't have the research skills to track down all the current owners of coins that might improve my collection and people seem (to me at least) to be hanging on to nicer examples at the moment ... So though I know it's outside the interests of most members, there's no harm in mentioning it I thought! Don't ask, don't get ... as someone irritatingly said once! Thanks!
  4. Hi, The rare but holed Charles I Exeter shilling - S3085. Spink doesn't indicate the price just stated that this variation - 16rose44 - is rare. The only analogue I can find is here: http://www.dnw.co.uk...s&lot_id=130049 Questions: I understood that the hole extremely affects the price but would ask how much does it cost approximately?Is ti possible to repair the hole and if yes will it positively affect the price and what is the best way to repair it?Regards, Doc
