  5. The ring arrived and it's even lovelier in person. Thank you, @PansPurse !
  6. Hip Hip, Hooray! 🥳 The luck of the Irish, hehe. ☘️ Message incoming.
  7. Considering my avatar, I wholeheartedly embrace our horned brethren in their battle for freedom on the moors of Sandringham. Your craft is vastly improved, and your tools and camera work too! Count me in if you please. My dad isn't a ring wearer or I'd definitely like to offer such a thing to him, but my mom might wear it. I'd love to offer her an old Irish Penny ring some time, now that I think about it. In Blue Peter fashion, here's one they prepared earlier:
  8. That's fantastic, @kerrste . I am going to give that a go in future for same-year examples and, where necessary or possible, same-die. Nicely done, thanks! Cheers everyone. The ebay seller has legit coins too but they seem to have gotten a dud on that crown. I let them know.
  9. Yeah pretty sure it's a dud now. The dot after the IMP is off too. And the proximity to the crown tip and GRA dot.
  10. For comparison, the tail is way off, isn't it?
  11. Thanks, both of you. Sadly there is no edge image. If it was tell-tale sharp as the day it was made, I would be certain it was fake. Usually that's the part they neglect to add fake wear on, I think.
  12. Opinions, please. At first glance I didn't like his face and that tail. Victoria seems far too well defined around the edges of her profile, but I'm no expert. EDIT: Thanks for input, folks. Looks like a blatant fake then. It's on ebay, along with the seller's many other legit looking half crowns and hundreds of stamps and post cards if that helps. Thanks for any input.
  13. Just reviving the thread to say the price has dropped a little more, and they are doing a 10% offer on top of that, for anyone on the mailing list. Also, The Gold Sovereign by Marsh has dropped down to £23.61 (£21.24 if you get that offer email). https://www.bookdepository.com/Gold-Sovereign-Michael-Marsh/9781908828361
  14. The money you save off the RRP (and postage) should get you half at spot, give or take.
