  2. You guys, I like the american takes on how the British are seen by our neighbors across the pond thou Im not hearing any apples or pears !!! HAHAHA. Or were Im from its actually normal to use language such as "Beauty in ummm", "is ummm","Does ummm","Don umm". References to where such pro-found, English might be used is " This coin is beauty in ummm" and to where somebody might reply "Tis an absolute bloody beauty aint ummm". Thanks for all the comments I love your guys input x
  3. Top grade 1901 halfcrown with superior toning of gold, green, purple. One of my best finds in 2018 from British auction houses.
  4. Hi there, I have not had a detailed look at reverse yet. There's similar toning all I know. Is there anything on the reverse that can determine if there a proof coin or not? When i get chance I will add some more photos.

  10. Hi condor, I have updated new photos Maria 46-e possible my opinion or any the outlined shield. Only thing keeping me second guessing is long curved neck. Is that serpent head? I’m not sure it has enough angle for serpent head. I would really appreciate your take please

  13. Hi guys looking for few opinions on grade of my 1844 Victoria Crown. I think it’s a VF easy, some suggestions from fellow forum buddies would be appreciated. If you view the post just take a few seconds to give me your personal opinion on the grade please. Thanks
  14. I can also notice the cow plough is more of a level top straight across the horizon. The plough also has very rectangular angles. Lots of 90 degree corners and square edges. This is another point worthy of noticing when considering what variety it is as others have different shape plough’s. If you also drew a line through the plough crossover intersection directly up the coin. You would also see this intersection is towards the right side of the horse directly under the mouth. This also only happens on a few varieties
  15. Yes there are only four that have ruffled fur and J to the right curve and angle. You have any idea of value and grade. Its patina is very thick
  16. I've found it JKK References RIC VII siscia # 240 There are quite a few varieties (14) I've narrowed it down to 4 possibilities
  17. After getting my magnifying glass out I can see 7 at the ending of date so its a 1787 defo. I've also noticed some key points that would help identify this which are as follows horizontal nasal eye is defined ears are defined and big bristle hair long curvature to neck there is clearly noticeable mouth outline also horizontal with small lower mouth ( some varieties have no mouth, or sloped ) below horse is a waved line Shield is outlined I believe its one of the outlined shield varieties I have only found pictures for MARIS 46-e,
  18. Im not even sure on the exact date either so you think its a 1786 ? Am I right in thinking its either 1786,1787 or 1788? I suppose I need to find out the exact variety before anyone could give me a rough estimate to value of this coin ? As I've noticed some a a lot rarer than others.
  19. I think you right KK, I'm still looking not decided entirely yet. The coin itself is still being posted to me once it arrives I will have better pictures. I also think the point you made earlier about the J behind the head of roma is also a good key to find this coin. As you rightly pointed out its very horizontal to a 90 degrees of the center of the coin. Whilst strolling through I've noticed there is a great deal of variations to the angle of this part of roma's helmet. Basically its narrowed the search down a great deal bristle back fur and J at a 90 degree angle to back of roma's
  20. Hi guys finally got coin in post here are the better photos hope this helps
