Uggh, don't rat us low life out! Well there are a couple I will likely fight pretty hard for (whatever that means in today's inflationary times). I really like the 6d-florin silver a bit better, but there are a few I am obligated to go after.

I'm not very impressed by their identifying Plautilla (wife of Roman emperor Caracalla) as "Plantilla". It's not even a typo as that's the name consistently used.

True.  Maybe that will drive some bidders away?

As I watched the sale this morning, I must say I did get blown out on the two lots I wanted, the "1551" 3d and the 1853 proof groat with later bust that with commissions each went for well above 3k.

I ended up getting just the 1853 3d.

I noticed that with the blown up pictures of lots that IMO quite a number of the 1840s-1860s 3e (not all) were what has been termed as satin Maundy issue and not actual currency 3d.
