    I’ve seen some people make hard wearing flooring out of 1 and 2 pennies. Cheaper than some more common flooring alternatives apparently!
  4. wanted Canadian sovereigns

    Amongst a few others varieties, I’m interested in Canadian sovereigns, pm me if you have any that you want to part with. cheers
  5. Half sov shield back

    From my research, you should get an ok 1887/1890/1892 that seem the most common shieldbacks Ive seen. At 150 they should be a reasonable grade but dont expect very high quality. Earlier years than that you can still get for 150 but the quality will be worse the earlier you go. I’d go for the best quality/earliest year you can get. Its a tradeoff but I wouldnt sacrifice too much quality for year, better ones sell I find easier than worn early ones. Each to their own but thats my view

  7. My pre-1937 Proof Sovereign collection so far

    Certainly worth a try I put two links for drake that have the full and half. Better grade half they have too but even more expensive!

    They all seem to have bumped up the premiums on young heads. Sharps Pixley the same, added about a tenner recently

  11. Today I Received

    I got this 1873-S while ago but only just taken photos. Pity about the scratch on the neck. ...and then a couple of better photos of the 1918-C posted earlier

  14. Hatton Garden price increases

    They (full shields) still seem to be flying off the shelf as soon as they become available at hattons. Currently £278
  15. Can a sovereign go rusty?
