      Hi Steve,

      I got a notification in my email about a post on eBay, and I think it would be great to post somewhere on CoinTalk. Where would be the best place to put it? Or could you please post somewhere for all to see? I think it would be of great service for all to know what goes on! It is posted in full on eBay Code of Conduct.
      Thank you,
      Chuck

      Regarding altered coins, there is more at stake than a "Code of Conduct." It is illegal to alter a coin to make it worth more. Cleaning or polishing lowers the value of a coin, so this would not be an illegal alteration. Removing a mint mark or changing a number in a date would be illegal if it made the coin more valuable.
      Take a look at the pictures in these two listings in separate browser tabs: 280331149022 and 260379427649. Now go from tab to tab and compare the pictures. Does this look like the same coin? It was bought for $23 as an 1894-O and sold as an 1894 KEY DATE for $520.

      Very impressive notes you've shared. Picture quality fantastic. I'm currently digitizing my collection and will share when completed. One of my nicest pieces is my Canadian 1954 series 1 through 1000 dollar notes, in my opinion AU condition. So much to share don't know where to start.

      Hey Orc

      Can you lock that thread up which has far more than spun out of control.

      thanks.

      He De Orc what a lovely collection but a bit out of my expertise. I specialize British Colonial banknotes, US MPCs and obsolete banknotes. I also like to collect odd shaped coins such as the Bermuda Triangle coins. Haven't seen a 5 ouncer for quite some time now.

      Hi De_Orc, thx for sharing the 2 and 5Pnd pics. amazing gallery u have on the omni site...
      I somehow miss the GV and GVI coins, i like them the best espcially GV... IMHO these were the best looking coins issued by the brits.. new Q ElizII with the older pic somehow isnt that appealing. the first coins of QEII were better than the those of today :)
      Again appreciate your work!

      Could you please tell me any coin shops are stalls in London...some which I could easily access via the tube?

      I find myself in London often and don't know of any coin places.
