  1. Hi coinman have you seen pictures of them all? Two have now been sold the one in this post I still own as well as the one headed 1887 #4. What is your opinion in regards to the overal finish too. In general it seems much more whiter and slightly frosted compared to a other half crowns I have seen. Especially older ones as there not many years that produced a proof variant. I have other 1887 half crowns that just don’t seem to have the same finish at all. Thanyou for pointing out the raised knife edge rims. This is something I have completely over looked until you

  6. After further examination I’m now a little suspect on this coin as it has a B in the laureate of hair and should be an M if I’m correct also has no mint mark below wreath on front of coin. Could anyone share some light on these 2 points please. I was going to list today on eBay but I do not want to list incorrect details. I thrive on being a genuine seller not a dishonest one. If these too points suggest it is a modern reproduction then that’s how it will be listed. Hope someone can help ty

  16. Thanks for comment, it would have to be struck very hardly with another coins edge reeding. It’s cupro/nickel so not soft like silver. To me still looks deliberate maybe somebody has etched on there. Im just curious too anyone else’s opinion.
  17. Hi everybody, strolling through a large lot of coins the other night from house clearance. Came accross a 1977 crown coin that seems to have a tiny crown imprinted beneath the horse. Not quite center between legs. Closer to the back legs. Has there ever been another report like this. I thought it to be scratch at first then closer I looked especially the angled top looks like a crown. It’s good finish to, delibaretly done. You can see the workmanship in especially in pictures 2/3/4. 100% a crown. Any opiniouns on this would be great...
