  1. Recent purchase and my first medallion.....50th Anniversary of King George 111...1809 Appologies, misread the heading when I threw this one in.
  2. Nice selection, there, Bill. I am fortunate to have one of these myself. It came in a Half Sovereign case and is roughly the same size of the Australian 3d.
  3. Nice coin, You mentioned there are 2 varieties, star stops and the cinquefoil stops. Could you elaborate a bit more on this please, as to what this is, which is the rarer, are there anymore know varieties. Which variety is yours? Do you have any informative links with additional information. Thanks in advance.......
  4. I would also be interested knowing as well, thanks.
  5. Certainly some interesting pieces, there. Appreciate looking at them. Thanks. I'm quite partial to a nice error myself. Look forward to seeing more.
  6. Looks like it might be a wrong plancet error. Looks like it may be real from the pics. Just out of curiosity what is the weight of it.?
  7. Straight from the postie's mailbag, a couple of the latest purchases. A 1979 double clipped 50c piece. This coin has the added bonus of being a double bar variety on the reverse, behind the emu's head. Double bar varieties in higher grades are getting harder to obtain. This was purchased as B/Unc. The next is a weak strike or a struckthru grease 20c piece. I am favouring the weak strike, at the moment, not 100% sure.
  8. This was purchased a couple of weeks ago, now. It was advertised as a doublestruck error.
  9. Get a glass cutter, cut a small enough hole to get them out, then place a small bung/stopper in the hole. Just a thought.....
  10. Don't know if this will help you, however I use this site. At the bottom is a reference source, it may help, or point you in the right direction.
  11. Some nice pieces, there, Bill.
  12. Thanks for the help. Appreciate it.
  13. Even better when you get them at face value..
  14. Thanks, Brett, appreciate the imput. A couple more as well. 1898 Russian note. A couple of Cuban Specimen notes. Looking for approximate values, I only have them valued at what I purchased them for a few years ago, and have no idea of current prices.
  15. This one is one of our more famous coins in the decimal era, a 2000 $1/10c obverse mule. It took about 2 years after they were mistakenly struck to be discovered, and about a further 3 or 4 years for the Royal Australian Mint to actually admit to the mistake and confirm it is a mule. The obverse was mistakenly struck with that of a 10c obverse, while the reverse was the standard reverse of the $1. The coin is known for having a double rim, and the head of the Queen is smaller, than that of the normal $1.
  16. This one took awhile to get hold of... A 20c plancet possibly one of the hardest to get hold of, here in Oz. 5c $2 $1
  17. I have had these notes for quite a while, now, and have no idea as to there value or why I even purchased them. Possibly because it seemed like a good idea at the time I am not a big collector of world notes, mainly Australian items, so any info on them would help. The first is a Russian note, purchased from a flea market. The next is a sheet of 4 USA $2 starnotes. Any info, links, grades,value etc would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
  18. Been getting a bit cool up here,to mate, down to about 19 at the moment. Got that indented off cobwebs when he listed it on emu. Have been picking up some nice 62 d/noses lately in good grades.
  19. A warm welcome from Downunder, as well. Must admit your site is pretty well known here.
  20. Just arrived this morning and must admit have been looking forward to its receiving it. 1974 Australain 2c piece, indented error.
