I'm told that understatement and restraint are traditional British (or English, anyway) virtues and that 'not bad' amounts to effusive praise, with any more adjectives amounting to troweling it on.

That coin is very not bad.

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

When it comes to rhyming slang, Bob not only is not our uncle, he's not even a distaff cousin twice removed. We never get it right. We do mutter well enough, though. I'll have to remember to replace effusive words with "ummm" going forward.

Please by all means post any more truly ummm pieces you may find.

Wow, PocketArt, those are quite ummm. We see so many vintage coins in worn condition, it's a rare treat to get a good look at all the detail the designer meant us to see.

@British coins, yes the 1887 is a proof strike.  Deep mirrors with cameo devices.  Also, the group of 4 coins are Maundy money- 1877.  Beautiful toning on those IMO.  

That half crown of yours would look great slabbed.  Keep us posted on grade please.  

Hey pocket do u know how much grading is ?

About $35 a world coin, there are cheaper tiers but I like early bird:  https://www.ngccoin.com/submit/services-fees/

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.

I do not blame you. I love the way the toning looks in the pictures. I may submit on the half crowns I got from you shortly. I’ll be sure to let you know the results. 

Thanks for heads up! I’ll have to take a look next time I get on eBay
