  1. It looks very deliberate now I have had another look, like they have only gone in the fields of the coin and it looks worse being magnified on this screen, possibly angle grinder
  2. I have had that problem, some sellers seem to think that the make an offer is for hugely inflated prices only.
  3. Leave them all with me mate, I will take care of them all for you
  4. Should of put my recent purchase on here
  5. Received this today, it was described as UNC, the pictures were c**p but I took a low bid gamble as the seller had several 1000 pos feedbacks, and 0 negs, magnified it looks like its been wired brushed in different directions on the face of the coin, when its in the hand you cannot see these scratches at all hardly, the otherside I would of lived with, needless to say its going back, what do you guys think has been done to it ? whizzed to deceive ?or badly cleaned ? Will teach me to bid on a c**p picture at 2am even if it was really low, it hasn't put me off using auction sites, I have had about 30 good coins, and only 3 returns so far.
  6. I take it you saw my Beretta 'sporting' gun after you posted about what I did lol
  7. lol neither of those, used to be part of a target shooting team, and did a bit of Martini Henry shooting.
  8. This arrived today, 1937 dated Austrian 2 Schilling, made from .640 silver, Austria released circulating commemorative coins each year, this one was celebrating 200 years since the building of their main church St Karl, 1937 was the last year Austria made silver coins of their own, the Third Reich invading and confiscated their coinage replacing it with their own in 1938. Made one year only, and 500,000 minted. The coin I could tell was a bit of a diamond in the rough, it had been kept in a PVC slip for decades, which had turned it into the incredible Hulk, it was dirty and had unattractive toning and probably one reason I got it so cheaply, so I decided this one I would use some MS70 coin cleaner on and it brought it back to life a treat. As bought Half cleaned And completed, very happy with it, can see all the original lustre now
  9. I suppose that is the risk when something is lower mintage/more handmade, there will be faults, though in this day and age there shouldnt be.
  10. This arrived today, pics dont do it justice, Its a British 1937 dated 3 Pence, made from .500 silver, this style of coin was made from the Kings Coronation in 1937 to 1945, 8,148,100 million being produced in 1937 alone, the smallest and lightest coin in my stack now. Hmm got that wrong, my two Netherlands are smaller and my 5 Cents Malaya is lighter. Shown next to a modern 5p for scale
  11. You sure you didnt serve on the Russian front in WW2 and have a collection of them
  12. lol looks like a gold tooth ripped from someones chops
  13. And restruck, though official and of silver, had the similiar problem when getting a 1938 Hungarian 5 Pengo St Stephen, the originals are most common, the restrikes are rarer but its hard to distinguish the difference on some of them except for the prooflike editions, and luckily so far the fakes are just awful.
  14. Nice hands mate, they haven't done much manual labour
