    Nice obverse. grade?
  3. Tunes to stack too

    Definitely Heart of Gold, can't beat Neil Young.
  4. UK Pre-decimal tips?

    Funnily enough, I prefer the 1890's veiled head crowns, the only coin with this portrait I can live with.

    would you mind saying how much you paid? The obverse looks well pock-marked for one of these.
  6. well, it's interesting but condition isn't the best..................and Jon Blyth sold a better one on ebay for £279 a few weeks ago!
  7. @BackyardBullion organises and places these group orders for everyone's benefit. What he orders as well for his own or anyone else's benefit is his own business and prerogative. I don't see the problem, in fact, I say hats off to those members who had the initiative to contact him "out of hours" as it were. They did run the risk of him telling them to go away! He may have made a rod for his own back though; next time he will probably be snowed under with extra-curricular requests.

    The first boat sailed for me years ago I'm afraid but I've actually managed to get a grip with the second recently, not been buying anywhere near as many as before!

    so you're going for an example of each die number regardless of year or a set of all die numbers for all years?????
  10. The Farce of UK Silver Stackers Facebook Group

    I had all sorts of trouble getting my 2 coins from DJ when he went awol. I had help from a member here who confirmed where he lived and that he was often at home so there was no reason for him to keep ignoring me. I was prepared to go to the small claims and he eventually did send me the coins although the extra one he promised me to "make up for my trouble and waiting" never materialised. Some people never change their spots.

    Ha Ha good question. I honestly don't know. I haven't any recollection of many of these selling prices and I can't be bothered to look Spink is no use at all for these types. Maybe at some point when/if I want to sell or grade.
  12. for exchange Swap silver for gold?

    Indeed, out of the rugby season there's not much else to do so I'm told
  13. Today I Received

    Having looked at it again, I think it would go EF
  14. Today I Received

    It has a little wear on both sides, probably aEF
  15. British trade dollar fake

    not strictly true. i've bought several genuine ones from Germany

    No, I meant the link to the photo won't display when I click it.
  20. Today I Received

    can't view it
  21. Today I Received

    I would say EF. AU58 maybe a tad better on a good day At least, that's my memory, I haven't had a really good close look at it for a few years. I'll have to take some good HR photos next time I get chance.

    Oh yes. It's a nice little series to collect but, as you say, has a few challenges. I have a 83 (and a couple of others) which is on paper the rarest at mintage 427k but the 86 and 87 seem more difficult to find. I keep meaning to try and complete the set but other things keep getting in the way. The Sydney series is another nice one to collect; more years but all seem to be easier to find than the Melbourne.
  23. wanted Australian lunar 2, 2oz coin case & coins.

    The nice bright red cases they issued with the 2oz proof set is good for the bullions too. There were plenty around a year or two back but not seen one for a while.
  24. Sovereign Errors, Overdates and Varieties

    I agree it's a 1B clearly with obverse 4 although I'm not sure it is in low relief. As I said in your earlier thread, I don't think all the varieties from 1880 are clearly defined yet. That would put it as MM455A and Spink doesn't recognise it. Most likely category would be S3860E, currently listed from 1876 - 1879. I'm not convinced about it having a narrow hair ribbon either.
