                      Wow love your old coins @thriftybri wouldn’t mind seeing some of the detail close up.Fanatastic collection and thanks for sharing them with us:love30:

                      I seem to have a natural knack of stepping out of our car in muddy /grassy fields when on day trips out and having to park in overflow car parks and after glancing down seeing the odd old £1coins impressed into the mud.I expect that now they have changed shape I won’t find any for a few years now:snorky:
