  1. What do the forum members think of the UK coin sets that come out every year? I've seen two sets available in recent years - one is the "definitive" set which has all commemorative designs on coins made from base metal and intended for circulation and the other an "annual" coin set which is more like a date set with high quality strikes of coins meant for circulation. I haven't been buying the sets, but I do love the designs of most of the bimetallic 2 pound coins! Related question, which one of the below would you rather have an MS 65 DPL or an MS 67 without the DPL designation?
  2. Someone on here collects WW2 coins, an antique centre near to me has absolutely stacks of British ones, old pennies, 3p hexagonals, one and two shillings, quite a lot of them are WW2 dated and between the wars and some just after, if there is any you are after let me know, these are for sale for less than 10p for some of them (need a proper look and jot down the prices and what exactly they have), I am happy to pop down on my weekly pilgrimage there and pick something up, a lot of them are in superb condition.
  3. Because they are in NGC holders it is very difficult to get a photo, but I was looking at some of my British 2 Pound non-PM coins I have and I noticed the edge lettering on the coins usually faces down away from the Queen's bust. I have a WWI Aviation coin from an annual coin set slabbed in an NGC holder that has the edge lettering facing up towards the Queen's bust. To put it another way, on the standard coins when the Queen's head is facing me and I tilt the coin to look at the edge lettering it is readable. The coin in question in this same position shows the letters upside down. The inscription is "The Sky Rained Heroes". Does anyone else have errors like this? The NGC label doesn't show it as an error coin, but I think maybe whoever sent it in for grading didn't realize it was an error themselves. I've seen a few comments online about some coins having edge lettering upside down, but couldn't find any information on this particular coin. In the picture below one can see the EROES of the word HEROES clearly facing the Queen's head side of the coin, which is not the way the other coins have the letters oriented.
  4. I'm looking at picking one up, came across one called "Collector's Coins GB" publisher is Rotographic author Christopher Perkins. Anyone got this, if not, what? This is it on Amazon
