Afternoon all,

Couple of little additions...and there's something different from me too:



A nice little 1835 farthing to go with it:



And now for something silver:



A little sideways curveball from me there.

Once again you amaze us. That 1927 penny is gorgeous, farthing is also very nice, you must be cornering the market on Regency era copper coins.

I know how rare the Kew Gardens 50p is too, its the Rosetta Stone of modern English coins!

I love COINS!!!

Surprisingly, it didn't go for as much as I thought it would. Got lucky there.

And that little 1861 farthing was an absolute steal at less than 15 including FREE postage.

Anyway, few auctions coming up soon, so taking a little break in readiness

Finally back after a while, I have finally brought the famous 1787 silver coins that were the only issued silver above 4d between 1758 and 1816 (Excluding tokens, bank tokens and counterstamped Spanish dollars).

My sixpence is a cleaned near VF/VF example and this has the hearts obverse (These are in the top right part of the Hanoverian arms)





It also kick starts the serious part of my sixpence collection.

The shilling is the no hearts obverse, notice the same quadrant is missing them. Both types are equally common, the rarities are the ones with no stops after the date or above the King's head.
Its also VF, but a bit sharper than the 6d and if cleaned, much earlier on. Both are decent examples of this long wanted issue.






The 1787 coins were an oasis after 30 years of nothing, apparently no records were kept of the numbers minted, but one source mentions 70k to 80k worth of the coins minted, meaning anywhere between 3.2 million coins (If 80k all 6ds) down to 1.4 million (if just 70k worth of shillings). There are relatively equal numbers of both, but I am not an algebra genius, so I guess about 2.2 - 2.4 million coins were minted in total.

I love COINS!!!

Nice shilling and sixpence, Princetane!

When I got the 1935 Papua New Guinea shilling and 1969 Malaysia $1 at the Sunday Market, I found an 1870 penny at the bottom of the tray. It wasn't in a flip and didn't have a price ticket. The dealer gave it to me free with the other coins...

It's not great but is an improvement on the one that was in my collection:

That is typical of the bun pennies that were still circulating immediately prior to D-Day on February 15th, 1971!
