  1. 😁 I get the Tom Hardy comments quite a bit, my missus says she wished I looked like him rather than one of his characters. I got some funny looks in the bar but I'm used to that, I'm also used to people surreptitiously taking my picture which can be quite annoying if they get my bad side. I'll have a word with the wife and see about putting some of her stuff on here. If you do decide to commission one of her pieces, let me know, she would be happy to. It was a pleasure meeting you. The coins are a welcome addition to my collection.
  2. I saw Bernard Manning live at his club as part of a stag weekend. He was brilliant. At the complete other end of the spectrum, my favourite comedian is Stewart Lee. Figure that one out.
  3. I'm just in the process of going through a couple of kilos and found this beauty. A 50 Reichspfennig from 1933 with a J mintmark. Only 654,000 minted and listed as 'very rare' on numista.
  4. I love this thread. I've been doing the same thing and cataloguing them on Numista. The aim is to get coins from all the countries in the world. I'm up to about 90 different countries so far but I have another 7 kilos to sort through. (And I've got 3 kilos of spares) Loads of fun and it keeps me out of the pub. Here's a picture of my coin map. Missing lots of Africa.
  5. I might pop along for a look around as I will be in London for the weekend. I'm meeting with the members of a club I belong to on Friday evening so I will almost certainly be phenomenally hungover.
  6. That is the best opening line to a first post on this forum. Welcome
  7. Brilliant. I love this. Also, some of those old school colognes were fantastic. Masculine as opposed to the poncy flowery rubbish being churned out by some houses now. I still wear a fragrance that I first used in the mid 80s. You would be amazed at how many people compliment me on it.
  8. I used to have a ridiculously large football programme collection but I sold it a few years ago. I collect antique silver salts, salt spoons, cufflinks and moustache wax. I have a lot of hats but that's not a collection as such, more a necessity of a club I belong to that has a different hat requirement when we meet each month. These range from pith helmets to a fez to a smoking cap and everything in between. It will be deerstalkers tomorrow.
  9. When the wife hears the @BackyardBullion YouTube music she calls me a silver geek. She will often watch them with me even though I refuse to watch her hairstyling videos.
  10. I never thought of that but I've collected a parcel addressed to Carlos Von Hairyman before without the postie giving me a second glance.
  11. 😁 I think I gave the Rt Hon Sir Monk D'Wally D'Honk last time.
  12. I've got a few well worn Victorian groats (four pence). I'll get a picture when I have more time. Same size as the 3d I've got loads of pre 1920 thrupenny bits. In fact I use one as my golf ball marker.
  13. Paddos and Paddies? Logs off.
  14. My local auction house sometimes has real bargains on .925 silver items.
