Princetane, I haven't received the coin yet. I'm sure the lighting matters a lot. According to seller, he photographed under natural light.

Don't worry Otto, when it arrives you will see it really looks like that!

I have been delightfully surprised by all my dealers and my own limited photography skills have shown, the shinier the coin - the harder it is to photograph nicely. When you see a coin photographed and looking like that - its gonna be a knockout.

Seriously - up to VF, it photographs well, above that it still looks VF!

I love COINS!!!

Next batch

Felt they where quite common so just threw on to one image.










Lamination flaws? I would doubt add any extra value but I guess still interesting. Seem like quality of silver's not that important.

Makes for a nice display, perhaps a good one for phone or computer background.

Actually that many together and a decent overall shape, not as common as you think. I notice 2 x 1930 shillings there and 2 x 1925 Halfcrowns - they are both scarce coins. Also some of your coins are VF/EF condition and overall there is a great lot.

I would take a set of as many dates as possible (Choose the best coin of each date) and sell the rest, at least the silver value will leave you with full pockets. Quantity like that in this silver starved era is always good.

I love COINS!!!

That penny is very beautiful Kipster!

Meanwhile, what do you guys think of these 1900 Halfcrowns. I paid more for them than usual 1900 Halfcrowns - why do you think?




They look like I have lost my mind.

Guess why they are special - I will reveal tomorrow. PS if you know please just say you know - don't give heaps of details.

I want to see the guesses.

I love COINS!!!

That's quite a catch if its related to the Elingamite.

Nice.

Prince that's farthings for you they are for the most part very weakly struck esp the shield and the Visor. Normally the hand is fused together but I think she has 2 fingers up which is quite apt lols. In Victorias era We are driven by the obverse more as the reverses were always poorly struck then came Edward and George and we paid more attention to the reverse strike as the obverse were always weakly struck.
Especially for the Bronze coins. Always the fingers be your guiding light as the actual figure of Britannia is nearly always flat and a lot of the detail from the die is missing. They had terrible trouble with this era particularly 1907 1917 for reverse clarity and nearly all of the years had metal mix issues more so with 1920+21 find them in genuine UNC red they are going to be showstoppers of the future they already gain a good premium and sell far in excess of the guides
