    SilverTanner reacted to augur in World War I Coins   
    Bulgaria entered as the final ally of the Central Powers World War I on the 11/10/1915. This might be peculiar since, as a Sachsen-Coburg, he was related to King of England and Belgium and by marriage to the King of France. But Czar Ferdinand Ist wanted to build up Bulgaria as a dominant power on the Balkan and recover territories lost to its neighbours during the 2nd Balkan War; entering on the side of the Central Powers seemed like a perfect opportunity to recover those territorial losses. With the defeat and surrender of AustroHungary and Germany this gamble didn't play off.

    I’ve been looking for a decent 1821 sixpence for a while. They’re not massively rare but it is difficult to find one in goodish condition. This arrived today and I am extremely happy with it. It’s a dirty little coin but cleaning terrifies me and so it’ll be going into the collection as is.
    if anyone does have any thoughts on cleaning, please can you let me know off thread?

    1880 Venezuela 20 Bolivares 


    2nd year of issue since Venezuela joined the LMU in 1879. There were 3 variants: 18 apart, 18 clos and 88 tight. This one is probably 18 close and 88 tight? 

    And it is also a 1 over 1 and 8 over 8 but that seems to be standard for this year.

    Nothing rare about this Bronze Medal but it was great to pick this one up in such delightful condition, both the medal and the case.

    Nice to see some sixpences!
    As it is the key date I just wondered what your 1836 coin looks like? I am trying to complete a slabbed set and I know that is going to be the hardest date to fill, I sold mine (nVF) ages ago and now regret it😟

    It’s a nice version, if a little dirty. I’m terrified about cleaning and so just leave as is. I would like to get them all sent off and cleaned and slabbed but the costs would outweigh the value, I think. Cheers.

    Two beautiful little sixpences: 1835 and 1837. This completes my collection of William IV sixpences!
    The 1937 isn’t brilliant and I will keep looking for better examples, but the 1935 is blowing my mind. It is in such good condition.

    1843/8 - Extremely rare, probably the rarest overdate in the shield sovereign series. In superb MS63 condition, an ex-Bentley coin so had to pick it up.

    Few arrivals over the last couple of days;
    1820 Sovereign (needs some NCS lovin' ) - love this design, to match the 2017 which is my fav coin.

    1853 and 1866 sovs;


    1924M Sov

     
    And then this one is a bit of a random by - my son was sitting with me while i was bidding on some lots and said "buy that one" so i bid and won it... its a T.D.C 2012 Sov with a "satin finish" - mintage 100.
    Its probably the hardest coin I've every tried to photograph... it just looks like a blank coin

    However under a loupe with a light it has a fantastic sparkly finish and lovely detail... just hard to see normally.

    I have one of these also unslabbed but nowhere near the condition of this one, this is the second finest example graded by NGC/PCGS
