I just love your gold!!!

The 1997 Britannias are sublime.

Gold is way too rich for my blood, I have to stick to silver sadly.

The shine of a 200 year old halfcrown will dry my tears.

I agree, all that gold in one place

David - I think you are having some serious computer issues, because I am on Chrome, have an old computer (2014) and all sorts of annoying Norton pop ups and can see everything fine, gold, worn shillings and all.

Speaking of worn shillings, just brought a mountain of British sterling silver at bulk + 30% prices. Some better coins in this lot (1887 Young Head shilling, 1835 shilling, 1842, 1853 and 1860 shillings amongst others).

Will show when they get here!

This is my latest attempt at beefing up the shilling collection on the cheap. Like in August, I did some bulk buying of shillings.


A bulk silver seller which I have bought off in the past got in a few worn and average silver shillings and he listed them in lots of 6 for $50 each (Well above melt, but figure the cost of GST and the fact TradeMe charges a 10% success fee, which would bring the coins to about 20% over melt).

He had about 15 lots and all were sterling silver coins (Meaning all at least 100 years old). I bought 5 of the lots and on average each lot of 6 contained 3 or 4 1910s GV coins, 1 Edward and 1 or 2 Victorian coins.

There was also a loose lot of an 1835 Shilling in VG which cost $19 and a pair of 1887 including a Young Head (Worn but a scarce coin) I brought for $25.

Of the 33 coins I managed to add 20 to my collection.





These are 8 gems, including 1818, 1835, 1842 and 1855 top row. Bottom row is 1858, 1860, 1880 and 1877 (Die 7). Generally I would not get crazy about worn shillings, but here in NZ Victorian young heads are hard to find in any condition and if you do see them in bulk lots like this, its always a super worn 1880 something or very late 1870s. Getting pre 1870 is a triumph, 1842 is a revelation!

The best coin of all these was this slightly dinged 1860 shilling, its basically a Fine and a pretty scarce coin worth around $30 - $40 in my book.



As you can see, this is a good coin!

The 1835 William was worth it too at $19, mainly as its a scarce date and despite being worn, an honest coin with great circulation cameo.



Its a decent VG condition piece.

Less pleasing but still a nice surprise is this 1887 Young Head, in this year of Jubilee, the first coins were Young Heads and nearly all of these are scarce if not rare.




More to come...

Other great coins included these for my collection




Again most of these will end up as spacefillers like the first lot, but they will do for now.
Top row - 1895, 96, 97, 99, 1902 shined up, 1906
Bottom row - 1908, 13, 15(This one will have a REAL short life in my collection), 1916 and 1917 (Both nice).
NOT SHOWN - 1891 - Very dire, but I did forget it.

Finally the leftovers - good for me as they make great spacefillers and good for silvers stack, silver at $24 US and ounce, if it goes to $40 I can sell these babies and get some $$$$$ to buy more shillings.



And I have just brought a 1739 shilling (Plumes and Roses, Fine).

Also 2 mixed lots of sterling silver sixpences and threepences - These were cheap.


11 6ds, all but 3 are 1910 KGV coins. Victorian Young Head 6d coins are even harder to get here than the shillings!



Worn but nice 1879 6d and nice 1902 and 1908 coins. The 1902 is very nice (VF stained)


The Threepences, I got 18 coins for just $37 (The 6ds cost $42).


Most were again KGV and this was a good lot, usually lots of sterling 3ds include 1 or more 1920s half silver coins.


2 kind of okay 1890s 3d's (1890 and 1896), 3ds from the 1800s are always superworn here. These are as good as bulk silver coins get from the era (G and VG).


Again some nice early 20th century stuff!

Thats my latest buy in, hope you liked.
