Today at the car boot! Quick little magnet test and appears good! £25 for all 4 hopefully got a good price! All look in fairly good condition.

Price is great for the condition they are in. I would happily have paid £25 for them, but I don’t collect those coins! Sixpences on the other hand.........if you see any, let me know!!

Where was the car boot sale? 😃

Yes I'm just using pre 1920 coinage for diversification was just lucky really I don't remember seeing him before but he already reduced them and was quite lucky to save a few more bob....did a little research and they're fairly common coins......and he had a Morgan Dollar which he sold before I got round to him!

Hmmm a little too far from London :p....way down in Cornwall!

I will be visiting Cornwall later this year for a brief break. We normally take a week in St Just and around that area. Please PM me if you know of any good markets or boot sales (and I’ll have to think of what to tell my wife the reason for the visit is!!!)

Better luck than 1;  I saw a 2 headed tin "dollar" & diabolical "gold" britannia (obvious fake to even my 5 year daughter) guy selling them, thought it was a bargain at £15 - let him dream.... Just makes you wonder what will happen if we return to the gold standard!!!

Ah unlucky better luck next time! Don’t worry I have actually been caught out at the car boot before from the guy I usually buy from but it’s a lesson learned and makes us a little wiser. But that’s why I mainly like to buy from eBay (I know some have a bad experience with them) but you do your research as you browse and you’re covered by buyer protection but you must be very attentive to the picture and description.

But as the saying goes if it sounds too good to be true......then it probably is!

Thanks. Its ok I didn't buy!!  I was reflecting on the  "if its shiny it must be valuable" expectation of many sellers
