  1. An observation: The government's best current advice to its people is to keep your distance from others and wash your hands frequently while singing "happy birthday". 350 years after the Bubonic Plague and the only improvement to healthcare advice during a pandemic is an addendum that singing might help.

  3. £220 ono + postage of your choice/risk BT or PPFF
  4. You' ll be able to recognise the RM visors easily enough. They'll be covered in fingerprints, smears and scratches are are probably pre-owned. When asked how many they will be producing, the RM replied that as they are a business it is not in the public interest for the figure to be released. Many local heath authorities have decided against immediate purchase of the RM visors following advice from TSF analysts who believe prices could fall by up to 60% on the secondary market.
  5. I'm sure that I am not the only one who, although highly suspicious of the "facts" we are expected to swallow without a second thought, still errs on the side of caution as regards taking unnecessary risks. One question I have not seen satisfactorily answered by the sceptics/cynics is why, if this "shamdemic" is statistically no more dangerous than the normal 'flu, are hospitals so much less able to cope than usual? All explanations/suggestions welcome.
  6. After a futile wait of over four years for the appearance of a singleton 2016 silver £1 coin on Feebay (or anywhere else), I decided to bite the bullet when the full year set turned up in auction. A total mintage of 383 sets (0 individual coins) makes the definitive 1p - £1 coins the rarest silver decimal (standard denomination) proofs ever. An extensive 16 coin set with 6 x £2, including the 3 Shakespeare coins, and the "Last Round Pound". The question, once again, is whether to split the set up...
  7. Hardly an awe-inspiring numismatic icon...but a long way from a liquid market. This silver 2014 £1 coin had a total mintage (BU & proof) of just 1118 across sets and individual coins. Apart from the 2016 silver £1 (mintage 383, only available as part of the annual proof set) this is the rarest silver one pound coin ever minted. So, very attractive - if only in the eye of this beholder.
  8. Was this "advisor" of yours a bald-headed jug-eared buffoon with an almost pathological admiration of George III but a limited grasp of alchemy?
  9. Does anyone have any info on the cheapest source for the frosted (cheaper) version for UK delivery. Ebay price is approximately £40.
  10. If anyone would like a referral code worth £100 to you (and me!) for switching a bank a/c to Nationwide then let me know.
  11. I believe the 67 year old Laura Ashley company already had underlying financial health problems unrelated to the corona virus.
