  1. Or they could be making a loss, as someone once rather fatuously informed me some years ago. Using loss leaders is a well-known marketing technique, but it is likely that @Midasfrog answer is correct. This is not confined to the coin business. If you wanted to buy, for example, a new Ford car, do you think you would get a lower price buying it direct from Ford, or from one of their dealers? 😎
  2. Hello, I'm Jonah, and today I am in whales...! 😎
  3. And i was looking for a thread about American 2 Cent coins, but while I am here: I quite like the 50 pence design, which is directly copied from the 1953 and 1960 (five shilling) crowns. While I was expecting to see some attraction in the other two designs, I don't think either of them have much aesthetic merit, particularly the double portrait one. 😎
  4. If you are intending to buy for investment, you could read this first: https://www.chards.co.uk/blog/advice-guide-for-uk-bullion-investors/1041 If you are buying as a collector, because you like the coins, or the designs, then just buy them, enjoy owning them, and don't worry too much about what they might be worth in 50 or 100 years time, when you might be dead and gone. 😎
  5. Silver tones / tarnishes (scientific fact). As this is an NGC slab, you could try reading their FAQ pages about toning, and their grading criteria. This might be helpful: https://www.chards.co.uk/blog/coin-toning/232 😎
  6. The answers, advice, and you have been received already are good. It is not clear what advice you are seeking, and I suspect you are unsure about what you might need to know. You could perhaps help yourself by asking yourself a few questions: Are you thinking of buying as an investment? If so, you could read this first: https://www.chards.co.uk/blog/advice-guide-for-uk-bullion-investors/1041 Are you thinking of buying because you want a souvenir of the Queen? If so, just buy what you like and can afford. Don't expect to make a profit on it, or even be able to get your money back for a long time. Do you really think any unlimited mintage coins will have lower mintages than limited mintage coins? It sounds like an oxymoron to me! 😎
  7. As your (revised) title states, it is an "Old Isle of Man Farthing" 😎
  8. This would be a good starting point: https://www.chards.co.uk/blog/advice-guide-for-uk-bullion-investors/1041 😎
  9. Perhaps they have found a way to avoid milk spots? 😎
  10. Which Mint was involved? Are you sure it was about the British Royal Mint, or could it have been the Royal Canadian Mint? I have never been "patted down" on any of my visits to the Royal Mint in London or in Llantrisant. 😎
  11. I wonder why? 😎 Ssshh! Are you trying to get me into more trouble than I can manage on my own? 😎
  12. I guess that saves waiting! 😎
  13. No, nothing so simple! 😎
