My sentiments exactly... My old and worn coins are among my most cherished numismatic possessions. I would buy a very old coin even if it was worn smooth, bent or holed. Because that coin has pure character and if it could only speak of its journey throughout history... You could very well imagine the tales it could tell..

This informs at least 90% of my non-commemorative purchases! I think of the Reichsmarks, and the Old Victorian Crowns, and just wonder what these coins have seen, who fought and died for them, used them to court a lovely young lady, or gave them to a beloved grandchild?

I think it's the crux of the hobby for me.

Also, Windchild, I LOVE the "death head" Crowns. I bought an 1889 to "go with" a BU Half Crown I bought as my first ever coin purchase, only to discover that my half crown is 1887 :)

I guess I will just have to get an 1887 Crown, and an 1889 Half Crown, both BU of course!

I got this for near spot, roughly 8 bucks each. I love British Silver, and I love King George coinage, so this was an easy buy. Numismatic value at bullion price!

I think the seller was a little conservative with his grading, he gave the 1932 a VF and the 1933 a F, while I am confident the 32 could do a little better.

Thanks Harry. I am a big fan of British coinage. I think part of it is the shared cultural identity, most evident by the queen being on "their money too". I also like the history of the odd denominations, and the fact that the currency was originally based on weight.
