Nice one Otto. I think it was a fair representation of the genuine article. I wonder if the engraver worked at the mint and was moonlighting?
A good acquisition.

Nothing spectacular but a better than average 1949 Brass Threepence . Any coins of 1946 and 1949 above VF are scarce

The counterfeit I posted on 5-28 turns out be a shilling.

Yet another recent auction pickup, this time a proof-like 1811 silver sixpence token from Sussex issued by Thomas Dally, a Chichester draper and merchant. While the castle is likely a generic representation, the shield is a technically accurate but "relaxed" interpretation of the city arms.

Dalton 13, R; Davis 12, ,


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

daltonista - Very nice looking one there, great color with light hints of blue green patina.

Well there you go....twice the value!

Actually your shilling looks more like the real thing than my bodgey sixpence.
On your reverse, the loose end of the belt comes out passed the outer circle as it should. I posted the sixpence on 4-23 http://goccf.com/t/132633&whichpage=222#3834695 and the loose end of the belt just fades off into obscurity and is taken over entirely by the outer circle. Perhaps your engraver *hung around* a bit longer than mine.
