"You know that feeling of satisfaction you get when you really have a collecting goal ticked off!"

I'm a sucker for shield back Vicky sovereigns as well . .

I got this today at my local antiques centre for 10. Without the hole it catalogues at 140. I'm quite pleased with it as these Bank of England tokens don't turn up very often and 1815 is a hard year to get coins from - it was the year before the great recoinage when The Royal Mint issued vast numbers of new silver coins:

Score, even worth it with the hole.

You got a "hole" lot of a bargain!

If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

A couple of pick ups 1879 Penny obverse is very proof-like very unusual and a beautifully struck coin.
1877 Penny with Error in the O of ONE and E over tilted E in ONE First 7 in the date is also struck over a higher 7 but this is also an unlisted variety with the right trident prong struck over a raised stop..
And another cracking coin obverse slightly lighter than the reverse obviously one side stored away from light. 1957 calm sea Half penny the scarcer of the 2 varieties and they don't come much better. Fully lustred UNC

Lovely coins, zookeeperz!

What are the things coming out of Vicky's neck on the 1877 penny?

@ Rob that's the Knee crease from the Britannia gown on the reverse. From the right leg going back towards the shield

Nice pickup for only 10, Rob, and the tough date indeed.

I'll see your 18 pence and raise you another 216 pence!

(Posted my little collection of these with some background in November on the exonumia thread...)



Best to all!
Tom

I never pay too much for my tokens...but every now and then I may buy one a little too soon.

Little is an understatement!

Zookeeperz, love your group and the tentacle penny of 1879!
Reminds me of the whiskers on the Kiwi bird on my NZ Florins!

Is that 1957 Halfpenny the rough sea one?

Soon from me - shillings from the coin shop!

My first bit of retail therapy for 2022, after the week I have had I derserve it. 5 more shillings (Had to leave 2 behind as the dealer is stuck in 1966 and has no credit card or debit card facilities and is cash monae only.



1826 Shilling George IV, the common date, but this is a better one (High Fine - near VF). Nearly also brought worn and stained 1827 and 1829.



1881 Queen Victoria shilling, gVF with some stunningly sharp detail, I love these wreath coins in nice condition.



1896 - aVF but harshly cleaned, this one was cheap - much better than my current 1896 and my 2nd decent old head shilling.
