Funny Coin Story
with a profit

      

wonderfull original lustre, although I do not collect
Victorian bronze anymore I did not have the heart
to sell a coin with a story how I came to own it

              

 
       1860 Victorian Mule 1d


I was visiting the Cumberland Coin show in London, to those on the other side of the pond it was England’s premier venue which I thought was great until I visited the US and got a headache just looking at the siaze of the floor of an American Convention.

 

   Q.What is a profit said Martin?

A. you buy for a 1d and sell for 2d, interesting said martin?

Q.As I entered the toilet I saw Martin, he said will you buy this 1860 1d bronze for 10 gbp.?


He looked at me and I said Martin you are quick leaner – he frowned and said I am Phil. I said Phil teach Martin how to make a profit?

A.He said he just learned you buy for a 1d and add 10% that is “just simply”, multiply by 10.


Phil I cannot wait I need the toilet

Q. You want the 1d. ?  I looked and said yes, paid and continued to the wall – as I stood there I looked at my new coin. Low and Behold it was an uncirculated 1860 1d mule with teeth border obverse and beaded reverse.

You want the 1d. ? I looked and said yes, paid and continued to the wall – as I stood there I looked at my new coin. Low and Behold it was an uncirculated .

Outside the toilet I saw Phil

Q.Phil want to buy this coin at 100 gbp, he said no it is too expensive and laughed, why so much now?


I said I just bought it from you and added 10%, 10gbp to 100 gbp and got two coins in one.

 

Today I still have the coin and maybe it is worth 4'000 + gbp.
