    Once the robot has done its risk assessments, completed its LGBT diversity & sensitivity training, once it can find hate crimes on twitter, once it has sympathised with the criminals human rights and once it has sued the local force for £100k from tripping over a loose paving slab, it will be ready to hit the beat im sure & kick some criminal a$$

    Their 'package' is one of each modern Proof Sov - complete collection of year dates for 27k. Which they tell you you can split immediately and make 40k. At least that was what I was told in their upsell, before I had to make my excuses and finish the conversation, as I was choking with laughter by that point 🤣
    I am sorry I am not currently available!

    Anyone else had one of these arrive today attached to your latest H&B offers?? Get the feeling Royal Mail think this stuff is in some way interesting enough to warrant scrutiny...

    It’s not, it’s attached to the offers letter they send through. I have to say I don’t like how they have  who the sender is on all the postage they use.

    As a retired Paramedic,  and often in a fast response car, the idiots I encountered were mind boggling!!! We eventually had cameras installed before my own RTC. And everytime we encountered dangerous driving,  we would mark it for the police later, before that we just took a number plate and called it in. 👹👹👹👹👹👹

    BEEB is corrupt to the core. Non competitive and use license fee for overpaying the top brass. A lady I knew used to take taxis home from White City in London to Birmingham. I mean that is just bull bad.

    Let me tell you something about the BBC..and this is FACT.
    In 1989 I was on an industrial placement as part of my degree course, and I worked for Central Television In Portman Square. Six of my fellow students went to work for the BBC. On Day 1, the girls were all warned NOT to get into a lift, or be in a situation where they are on there own with JIMMY SAVILLE!!..The feckers at the BEEB all knew what he was up to and did nothing about it...they absolutely disgust me ...make your own mind up, and I’m sure the culture has changed etc etc..but for me their failure to act on what they knew is unforgivable...I would do away with the license fee and make them enter the real world..
    Another little story from the past and the BBC...they liked to look after their favourites...apparently when filming outside London, to ensure they all got home on time, they used to get the taxis to wait from drop off in the morning to when filming ended, to ensure they got home on time..with the meter running all day..they just charged it to the BBC’s taxis account..which we all paid for..NICE!
    As I said..a long time ago and I hope those idiots from the past have long since departed...

    No exciting background story this time, we received it in a batch from a european dealer - who offered to replace it when we found it.

    That was actually quite scary and shows that prior to buying a "premium" coin from anywhere else than a trusted and knowledgeable source, one should really know what you are looking for. 
    This fake was produced with technology available 50 years ago, today's technology will allow for much more sophisticated forgeries.
    The right (fake) portrait features quite often on eBay, in particular silver crowns. What is noticeable without any magnification is that it looks "uglier" with fallen in cheeks, a more hooked nose; unless this is a variant and copied from a genuine coin?
