Happy Birthday. You ARE Paul McCartney!
Can we have a better look at the Greyhound Racer? It's on my 'wants' list.
….. and on that note, has anybody else noticed that The Beatles are dying in the wrong order? !PUZZLED!

Nice, and the only way I can get my birth year on a penny.
Perhaps I'm a facsimile too?

I've seen the copies - they have none of the patina and character of the original.

Ah ..... but have you an original 1954 or 1933 to compare them to?

Believe me I'm an original 1954 and you wouldn't want to get anywhere near my patina unless armed with anything less than a wire brush and Dettol.
