  1. I found a coin market in Alicante
  2. Hi There are several good reference books.All written in English. I use several. Obviously Spink Coins of England (about £25) The 2013 is just out.A bit basic. Coincrafts 2000 catalogue.A good reference (available 2nd hand) North Volume 1 & 2(about £45 each) Englands striking history (by Rotographic) Good value and an interesting read.(£7 or £8) There are further specialist books which cover various subjects, The above should start you off. As you specialise you will find more information and websites.
  3. http://www.abccoinsandtokens.com/DH.Lancs.107.001.html Or even this
  4. http://www.abccoinsandtokens.com/DH.Lancs.120a.001.html Hi Your token based on this would be worth £1 or £2 only
  5. Hi As advised your coins are all very common and only worth anything in UNC. 20p's with date one side are worth 20p. Even the dateless 20p's are now only £40 and I expect this will be £40 for the next 25 years....they are vastly over rated and not a good investment.
  6. They also come in a purple box. They are proof's. I have handled many over the years and never paid more than £3 or £4 each. There is a frosted version and a sandblasted version which are very rare.I do believe the location of all these pieces is known to the market.
  7. Please let me know how much my 1954 house is worth. Now think about your question.
  8. I would happily give it GEF. It is a no colon after REG P1484.This is more common than REG: (P1480). The black toning and also the finger print knock it. Personally I wouldn't buy it. I would expect a dealer to ask £65 and maybe a deal could be done at around £50....no more. Spend another £30 and get an AUNC/UNC with good toning and no finger print.
  9. It is a brass gaming token actually manufactured in the 19C.They are very common and cost less than £ at coin fairs...I have sold a few for 99p on Ebay.You can't really get ripped off for $3
  10. Nothing wrong with the Fine Silver issue 1/-. I saw some really nice ones over the weekend but these were £300+ This was always a common hammered of a nice size and quality and demand proves there are not enough to go round. I wonder how many exist? It would be in the thousands so in the face of it rare.

    English coins

    Hi Even in top condition maybe £500 (depending on the dime?) & the bulk of this for the 1 1/2 sovs.
  14. You are repeating 1946.... George 11 only ruled to 1760.The Lima refers to Spanish silver captured by the British and was minted on some 1745 & 46 silver coins.These are quite common.
  15. I wouldn't bother on Ebay.uk even you get stuffed with good gear on there. Go to any area in the UK with a US base nearby and you can pick up bucket loads of the stuff at carboot fairs.
  16. Its one of the most common British replica's you will come accross. Also look out for a tiny WRL (Westair reproductions ltd) on coins. 1562 pewter 3d/6d size Liz 1 coins are also everywhere Unless you are an experienced hammered collector start on Henry 111 or Edward 1 pennies and learn before you burn....or use trusted dealers. On another forum we have ID'd avised the Ebay seller of a WRL pewter Liz crown copy worth £1 ??? it went for £770.
  17. It would of been spookier if you hadn't found one. Over 16 million that never went into circulation but straight to the back of a cupboard.
  18. The majority of evasions or copies were approx 40 years later. Your 1733 is very low grade and probably worth the same (real or evasion).
  19. They were often put on watch chains....only worth pence I'm afaid. I have seen them go for £50+ by punters who think they are gold. They were mainly made in the 19c.Interesting but brass.
  20. Presently I don't go for the classics but enjoy anything of which I appreciate...early coppper is still in my grasp with a few choice later silver pieces and some hammered (far under priced ) I will shift the majority of my collection for just coins I want to pass down to my kids...plus the thieving goverment won't have a clue...hide your tracks boys.
  21. About 8 grams of 22ct gold. Just a few years back they could be had for £60 to £70...I wish I'd bought more.

    Please advice

    They are often defaced due to the size canvas that they are.I have also seen them bored out and threaded to make pill boxes etc. The markings have reduced the value of the coin considerably
  23. From memory a guinea will way 8.3 grams and half guinea 4.13 grams. They are unmistakable in the hand.
