    From what I heard, There was a mess up with the forum last year and the pictures all got deleted from the server, there is a heap of threads with missing pic which is a shame

    Today I picked up a set of Franklin Mints "Official Gaming Coins of the Worlds Great Casino's" 25 beautifully struck coins in proof finish sterling silver with total weight of 17 oz 925. I collect various casino/gaming collectibles so was happy to pick this set up from Ebay delivered for $245. Box is beat up but coins are perfect (not obvious in photo :) IMG_20181024_123648.jpg )

    i picked up so many bargains this week. A Full Australian penny sets with VF 25, aUNC 46 and dropped 1 for $50. With most of the later coins unc. The Cheapest pre decimal set ive ever seen. And, this slabbed 1988 20c (200k minted) for less than it would cost to grade it. Top 40 population. And, every roll and bag of one modern denomination and year, so cleaned up gumtree, ebay and every single online coin store in Australia, i could find. All now sold out.

    This is a 1594-1596 Elizabeth I, silver Shilling 6th Issue S-2577. I never saw one of these coins before I picked this up recently. There is some nice red and bluish/greenish toning on some parts around the letters the photos don't pick up too well. Not bent and no scratches or graffiti, etc. Looks like original finish on the coin.
