Indeedy, very fair. You should definitely put "Brian May" in the Ebay title of the auction. Even more people will flock to it. I'll probably get 2-3. I already play (Sometimes) with a 3-pence! It's pretty good actually. But I do always wonder if the 6-pence will be different.

Tell us when you set it up and I'm sure all us guitar players will love to have one.

Peace,
Adam.

I was only joking I think the prices on that site are incredible rip off's even for genuine SILVER sixpences. Especially as some of them aren't even genuine currency.

Take a look at ebay later this week. or drop me an email at the address in my profile.

Well, I decided to get the ones I saw on Ebay. Received them this morning and they are excellent! Not grubby at all. Quality-wise - they look and feel like any other coin in circulation.

I immediately got a feel for them. Love the edge. It certainly feels unique because of the size and the er...feel. :) Just so you know, I've posted the auction below. You get 3 for £2.50 and free P&P in the UK.

I've also received mine!!
Many thanks to scullyuk.

I thought they'd feel strange to play with, but no. They're great! Definitely the right feel!

Pathetic as I am...
