More shillings included a high VF 1888/87 coin of our favourite and easiest to get monarch here - Her royal she is not amusedness!
These late 19th century machine regulated pieces of empire seem far removed from the renaissance era slabs of the past. This one has nice toning too.
The 1905 difficulty trio is topped off with this shilling, much more scarce than the Florin and almost as rare as the halfcrown, this middle grade piece cost a bit. A mintage of just 450k, was the lowest of the 1900s.
This coin is about the best my budget will extend to, and it makes me immensely happy. I love scarce coins. Like Prince said that people only dug Purple Rain because its a hit, many collectors only dig 1905 big silver coins as they are rare.
Finally 2 well above average pieces topped off this huge buy in, compared to the cream before, these too were cherries on top - but serve as collectible pieces given many collectors go to town with the old and rare stuff, but are happy to have "average" examples of these later coins.
This shilling is even better than the 1932 and has a nice tone, it looks dull, but up close - try and find the wear this thing is really sharp.
This one is so mint fresh, you could be fooled thinking its Nov 1955 and not Nov 2021 - imagine how exciting finding that fresh coin in your change was back in the day!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
