Recommended Posts

I am slightly remiss in posting this but I have (A couple of days back) posted scans of my BEA collection, I have a few nice shillings amongst them but for the main they are copper

Have a look and let me know what you think of these rather widely used coins :ninja:

The British East Africa coins have long been favorites of mine. Very nice grouping.

I like the 1926 shilling. Althogh stained it is a nive looking very fine. I've been looking out at the ebay recently for BWA and East Africa ones. There are some very nice and not very expensive samples passing by from time to time. just a matter of timing.

 

I just got a 1916 1/10d what appears to be either XF or UNC sample. There was a spot on it hope it is not too bad. And cheap, it was under $4. One day I may post some of mine too...

I've started scanning some of my better Southern Rhodesia, after that will for others worth the scans. Don't think anyone will be interested to see rows and rows of South Africal proof coins I have. Well, maybe the 1932 or my Rhodesian proof set (when I finally get it from the auction). Just boasting :ninja:. Look here http://www.omnicoin.com/?collection=sandy3075

Sorry I haven't posted in such a long time but both my parents became very ill and I cared for them until they both passed on. I am just starting get my enthusiasm back for coins and have a ball catching up with all the posts, particularly the russian.
