    1902 3p not sure if it is a Matt proof as it has a nice satin sheen that I can't quite get in the picture.
    Been to SA and found this 1742 1/2p in a flea market. Cost me £8 so can't complain.
    A QB Bull. Thought there was a double stamp at first but it is just so bloody shiny LOL
    A wedge tailed eagle to go with my others.
    Won some SA old silver at the last DNW auction, 1x 6p and 5x 2/5 shillings. Not sure if any are worth grading so thoughts are welcome.
    Lastly a 1/20 gold dog bought in Dubai airport during a transfer. It was bought using my daughters 1st birthday money and every year from now on we will get another with her money so when she becomes 18 she will have a nice pile of the shiny stuff.

    I bought this from MCM for $39.95 and the next day the price was $99. It must have been a mistake. They might have meant the MS 69 was that price.
    The slab is 6 1/2" by 4 1/2 " ... not a very nice display.

    2007Britannia 20th Anniversary Platinum proof set - four coins, from 1 ounce to 1/10th ounce. Pretty nice condition; just really wanted the 1 ounce to go with other Pt 1 ouncers I have , but the others in the set I can put up with as well! 😉
    Question is: to grade or not!?!

    20 French Francs Mintages 1871-1898 Angels- Missing Years!
    Having  checked various websites (coindatabase/reocites/Chards) it seems that the 20 Francs Angel coin was not made for several years.
    Can anyone confirm (before I start looking for them) that there were no Angels minted in the following years:- 1872,1873 and 1880 to 1885 inclusive..Many thanks.
    Picked up a few more different years this week, maybe in better condition than the first batch.

    Bought as bullion so pleased to see a proof turn up, no case or COA. Capsule is the RM screw type and has a few marks but the coin looks good upon first inspection

    Having served in the second Gulf War with our coalition partners, this latest arrival has great meaning...the “Behind Enemy Lines” Gulf War Gold Full Sovereign Coin Medal Set.
    The set includes a 1980 Gold Sovereign, one of 16,289 Sovereigns that were issued to British Military personnel taking part in Operation GRANBY as part of the Coalition Forces during the Gulf War 17 January to 26 February 1991.
    Sovereigns were provided by the Ministry of Defence and carried by any servicemen who, it was thought, might find themselves isolated and in need of bargaining power if confronted by unfriendly forces.
    Several Sovereigns were used during the War, mainly by Royal Air Force crews shot down over enemy territory and SAS, but all the uncaptured coins were returned to the Ministry of Defence at the conclusion of the conflict, having served their purpose.
    The Ministry of Defence confirms that this sovereign is one of the coins returned during the Gulf War by military personnel on completion of their missions into enemy territory.

    They call me the 70 maestro....

    In relation to the Australia bar/coin, I think the cold is much smaller than the silver so should fit into a standard slab
