Old Pennies

Postby badpenny » Fri Jul 20, 2018 9:03 pm

Coincidences are sometimes baffling but interesting.
Wednesday was my birthday, Fifty-Fourteen years of age. Somebody asked me with all the pre-decimal coins I've got, why hadn't I mounted a frame of coins for my year?
I have a vague idea I once tried to, but it was more dificult than I thought it would be.

Now the other part, a few weeks ago I was photographing some machines I'll be off loading this year.
One of them being a Caille type Greyhound Racer. At the time I wanted to show that the sign for 10 payout had been ground down and changed. So I took a close up of it and then cropped the wrong side, giving me a close up of the pennies on the top instead. And there is a 1954, never seen one before. Now since then it's all been moved and the coins thrown into one of the many buckets of coins I've got laying around.
Typical, if I can be bothered to search it'll take me ages.

OK, come on then - what's the story? Pennies weren't minted in 1954 and I'm pretty damn certain you don't have a 1933 penny either. But happy birthday anyway.

Oh, a belated b/day [not bidet] BP. Sorry, emails take a lot longer from Upsidedownland.

Happy Birthday. You ARE Paul McCartney!
Can we have a better look at the Greyhound Racer? It's on my 'wants' list.

On looking at your birthright coin I see that Brittania looks more like a centurion than a goddess!? Hippy bath day.

What again?
I first retired over ten years ago.

It's two years to go actually, the thieving bloody government extended the pension age a few years back. Sadly they extended women's from 60 to 66. Makes me glad I changed sex back when I did.
