Impulse Buy

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum

I hope everyone is well and avoiding the January bugs floating around, I have not been so lucky.

Anyway I came across this little shiny Silver Piedfort Five Pence Coin with a COA online going for reasonable price (under £20).

It Weighs in at a massive 6.5 grams Stirling with a mintage of 20k.

Please feel free to comment with your thoughts and also include some of your most recent Impulse buys :D.

Was expecting to get outbid at the last moment on eBay and wasn't... Although this means I got it for a reasonable price even with postage

When I teeter over the bid button on eBay with half hearted commitment, and press bid, I usually win...! But have regrets.  Don't know what you paid but don't think anyone would. be disappointed owning that coin.  

Strange, the opposite rarely happens when mad keen for a lot, usually outbid and always it seems, the underbidder!

Don't you have minimum wage in the US? :D

Yes, and I'm thankful that I make more than it so I can afford this hobby.  I realize now that was awkwardly phrased. :D  The coin itself was under $10.

I don't know much about UK coins, just getting into them recently.  So, as long as I'm replying again on this thread, can anyone tell me if the apparent die crack across right side of the portrait does anything value-wise for collectors of these, or does it just amount to a unique quirk? Thanks.
