Zookeeper if someone offer that price and you don't feel too much shame especially the lower end coins most people don't understand that when it comes to coin collecting some times its the shiny ones that count. when you score coppers close to melt it really does feel like stealing. Nice Set of Coppers , still makes you a lair tho .


Princetane harder to get a full set over here is my guess the shipping alone kills any thought of trying. Nice brownies.

It is a good price!

Farthings are really underappreciated by collectors I think, we are all chasing the gold and silver and even with bronze, its the pennies, and fractional farthings that get all the love.

The farthing is barely noticed and the poor halfpenny seems the least loved.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

I like the farthing - as far as British bronze goes it is an achievable series (mostly).

I like copper and bronze and I think farthings are elegant. Here's my 20th century ones. I think I've already posted 19th century sporadically.

This one just in for me - Denier for Edward the Black Prince minted in Limoges. This was in the period when the Kings of England still had substantial lands in France. Edward was the son of Edward III of England and administered some of the lands in France during his father's reign. He died before his father, so no coins were issued in his name in England and we jumped a generation to Richard II.
The history sold it to me rather than the handsomeness of the coin itself, although getting a profile on a Plantagenet coin is rare enough.

2 new arrivals to the family!

One each for Halfcrowns and Florins and both coins are upgrades.





1912 George V Florin, this coin is EF and very shiny, I suspect it was historically cleaned - but a nice tone is coming back. Replaces a very worn coin.





This 1918 halfcrown is a different story and is a candidate for an abused coin - seriously - this EF piece was harshly cleaned with silver polish (The blue grey residue I recognise from cleaning trophies) and very harshly, its left an ugly residue which has hardened into a black tone around the edges. The coin is darker and duller than the photo suggests.

I got the coin cheap and despite this, it has hardly any wear and still a good coin under that gunk.

A better date piece to add to the Half crown series 1842. 486,000 mintage. On looking over the coin I discovered what appears to be the B of BRITANNIA Struck over an underlying E? Lovely coin pics as always pretty naff but still has lots of residual lustre GVF/AEF Solid Coin

I agree nice piece, not sure about B, but will give you benefit of the doubt.

Look at the R in RUM, that looks interesting or fishy and how the UM looks uneven in the line - it was obvious the die setter at the mint was having an off day.

Agree with condition, its in that nether region between VF and EF - way too nice for VF but if you called it EF - howls of protest. Incredible how many of my Halfcrowns and Florins are in that grading midline - except mine are mostly George V - ha ha!

Two coins from foreign shores which always warms my heart to bring them home to where they belong albeit the latter coin was meant to be in India but still it was a British ruling Monarch so 1 and 1/2 coins lols. First and I really mean this the double florins of queen victoria I would say 90% even more maybe are or have been cleaned to various degrees during their lifetime. Even if you have a keen eye unless the pictures are like NGC/PCGS quality. I have bought countless of them and all appeared top draw coins only to end up lightly cleaned or practically body baggers. More so with EU sellers. For some reason they do like to polish coins.

For the first time I have actually got a straight 1. Far nicer than the pictures. Lots of colours going on which sadly never really come forward when using digiscopes 1887 Double Florin .925 silver.
Super condition Au+ and an 1835/3 unlisted date error One rupee F/GF. Many varieties on this date some are extremely rare . I have not had time to look this one over yet for type but being an overdate its already rare . Possibly one of the last purchases before xmas
