Gainn - no sorry. It seems I have Proof 1937 Halfcrown and both of the shillings, but the florin eludes me, my 1937 is just a standard AU one.

I do have the 1950 and 1951 Proof florins though.

No worries Gainn, I was just browsing the catalogue looking for some nice coppers or bronzes and clocked it. I won't be bidding on it seeing as I've just bought another 1927 wreath crown proof and blown my budget...again. Like a Magpie, see something shiny...

Either way, that one looks lovely.

35. Someone I've bought from before and their photos are usually very accurate. The obverse has more toning but it's a little less regular.
Toss-up between this one and one that's toned more orange/gold but in a very nice gradient.
Starting to realise just how very subjective tone is.

Thats a little step, better be as good as the photo. My 1950/51 Florins were $39 each (20) and they were exceptional with lower mintages.

Still if your gut instinct appeals to it, buy it by all means.

My Maundy pennys and 1d arrived today, they really are tiny. I am amazed they managed to make them so well, that far back (1830s).

I can understand that. It is a stunning florin.

Got this today from my LCS - an 1848 penny (mintage 161,280). It appears to be the non-overdate variety, which is actually slightly scarcer than the 1848/7 (though not as scarce as 1848/6):

I am still missing several dates and varieties in this series - they are harder to find than catalogs suggest, and dealers often charge more than catalog value for them.

As you requested!


The Florin looks HUGE in comparison


Looks like a line up of planets!

Kipster - I see you have leapt into silverware very well, that crown is just gorgeous I am in love.

NumisRob - Love that penny
