  2. I come across fakes all the time they are everywhere sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you don’t. I still buy raw regardless as that’s where u find the gems. Plus believe it or not plenty of people will pay for fakes/restrikes/copies, as coin fillers because not all collectors can afford the real deal. 


    When I find a fake in a bulk buy I will relist it as a reproduction coin state clearly it’s not the real deal and put a £6 price tag on it. People still buy and I recovery some of the loss. 

    Good work on sniping out those forgeries thou respect 👍

    That is a stunning coin! The toning really adds to it. If I had to hazard a guess I would say MS-64 if submitted through NGC. 

    Thanks buddy is one my favourites.

  5. The harp always represents Ireland and damn you know your stuff condor. I never knew about the house of hanover or why its was advicated. Talk about sexism!!! Thou I know the Brit royals and the German royals are all the same blood line. As to are multiple of the American presidents. In which are are traced back to the Merovingian bloodline. Which may I add is a very interesting read. The worlds elite has always been and always will be. Thou respect to those who won and thought there way to the top through  intelligence and pure genius ie the Rothchilds. Right from the battle of waterloo and the manipulation of the stock market. Woo this post has got deep and Ive learnt something I didnt know. Love history.

    Very hmmm-looking piece spoiled only by the monarch's sloped forehead, which makes him appear a little too close to our anthropological roots. I commend you all in the UK for arranging to have nicer-looking monarchs in the twentieth century than you did in the nineteenth. No offense, but it was miss after miss on that front, and changing to a queen only helped for a short time with about a fifty-year appearance purgatory. Roughly the same pattern was used in the twentieth--a series of men for the first half or so, one woman for the rest--but with much handsomer material all around.

    Since I know the coin is pretty small (you did not bad to get it's image blown up so we could see it), I do not think the rim dings/bumps are large enough to notice with the naked eye. Same with the tiny dinky tarnish spots, though the color might change that. I think there is mint luster in protected areas and that's the other box to check for EF.

    Very Witty JKK I like your style 😎.


    EF would be nice 👍
