Things to look out for in UK Coin Articles Posted April 17, 2014 · Report reply I have recently been given 2 tins of pre-decimal GB coins. They are in old-fashioned paper money/bank bags. They are pennies, three pences and six pences ranging in date from early 1900s to 1960s. Can anyone offer me any pointers or advice on what to look for re the more rare or valuable coins of this period before I just sell them as a job lot? All help gratefully appreciated!
