The latest arrival. Again, images don't do the colour justice, whatsoever.

@Kipster, that's a beautiful penny. Nice upset too. A splendid acquisition.

Is there a (UK) thread to show items lost in the post in case they 'show up' somewhere?

Sorry but you have a 1957 penny? If you did and it was British, it would be unique. You may want to recheck it and make sure its not 1937, or 1967 and not Australian or New Zealand.

Ah yes a senior moment, apologies Thanks for pointing that out Princetane, sadly it's not the impossible penny.
I was listing some from memory and had the 1957 half penny in my head at the time.
And just on that subject, I think that halfpenny,(1957) is what is called a "calm seas" variety.
Can anyone confirm this, or put me out of my misery?
It would be low down in the grading tree I think.

Picked up one of the 1953 plastic packs today.
Little bit of toning here and there.

Yes it is. They are quite scarce.

Great pickups everyone! Kipster - that penny is gorgeous!

Thanks for that NumisRob. Averaged out over the kilo of coins, it cost me around 40 cents, pretty happy with that.

Nice set of 1953s Gainn, if you don't mind me asking, how much did they set you back?

12. Not sure if that's good or not, but guessing I paid a 'current events' premium.

Another acquisition surprise, to find this stashed away in a PVC folder with some Irish moderns. It seems to be in pretty good condition, maybe close to UNC or EF+, opinions gratefully accepted.
And I must confess a huge amount of ignorance about Jersey.
The name is no stranger to anyone, but for the last 66 and a half years I have had no idea that it is an island off the coast France, a crown dependency of Great Britain!!!
It is a good thing that I have found this coin today, and I shall read up about the chapel on the Hermitage of St. Helier.
I had it in my mind that is was closer to GB.....who knew.... not me obviously.

1989 Balliwick of Jersey Two Pence
