eBay Copyright Thieves
Many eBay vendors use our coin photographs to sell inferior quality coins on eBay. These eBay members are dishonest and should be avoided.
We believe eBay profits from IP rights infringements (copyright theft), and does so knowingly, only removing infringing items reluctantly, if at all.

1965 Churchill Commemorative prooflike Crown Coin
1965 Churchill Commemorative Prooflike Crown
Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill died in 1965 and
a commemorative crown was issued in his honour and memory.
This 1965 Coin was only the second English Crown to show the bust of a Commoner,
the first being that of Cromwell in 1658
The latest coins I have unearthed are in fine shiney (sic) prooflike BU ( Bright Uncirculated ) mint condition ( the best I have seen ) and if you are looking for one of these then dont (sic) miss this opportunity and end up with a shabby one from elsewhere
Obverse
The first (young) portrait of the Queen facing right, designed by Mary Gillick.
ELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA REGINA F D 1965
Reverse
Sir Winston Churchill, facing right, wearing his now famous Siren Suit,
designed by Oscar Nemon and is a worthy ( but not perhaps flattering ) memorial to a Famous Englishman
CHURCHILL
Edge
The edge is reeded
Specification
Version
Alloy
Diameter
Weight
BU
Cupro-Nickel
38.61 mms
28.28 grams
Condition
I am no expert but would think this coin would be viewed as 9/10 as there is little, if any surface scratching
( Library picture used but I can confirm that the coin is in similar condition )
Payment
Via Paypal where possible, please e-mail if not
Postage & Packing
Despatched in individual plastic wallet in padded envelope
( 25p per item deducted off each P&P for multiple purchases )
UK: Royal Mail
0.99 2nd Class at buyer's risk
1.49 1st Class at buyer's risk
2.49 1st Class Recorded ( signed for )
Worldwide: Airmail ,
2.19 standard at buyer's risk
5.89 signed for
Please note that, to retain a low starting bid
of only 99p
the price to be paid for this item will be the winning bid plus the cost of P&P.
This means that, if multiple auctions are won,
then the only reduction in the combined price will be
the 0.25 per item discount detailed above.
Unfortunatley (sic) winning multiple items does not mean
further big reductions in P&P as I rely on income
from P&P to subsidise the cost of the item

What's Wrong?
We invest a great deal of time, effort, and cost into creating some of the best photographic coin images on the internet. We strongly object when lazy and dishonest people decide to use them without a by your leave or thanks, doing so in competition with us.
Copyright theft is dishonest. We recommend you avoid doing business with dishonest dealers.
This particular eBay seller not only stole our high quality copyright photographs of the reverse side of a 1965 Churchill Crown, but informed potential buyers that his coins were prooflike, and the best he had seen. This is deceptive, although he possibly deluded himself first.
Sadly, it is also typical of eBay!

Price
He used a starting price of 0.99.

Overcharges Postage
He states that he subsidises his low starting price by making extra on the postage. This contravenes eBay's listing policy rules.

More...
When we took a closer look at jonrolf's other item listings, nearly all British crowns from 1953 to 1981, we noticed that much of his text, and specification tables were lifted from our website also.
Sometimes he appears to have invented other material to add, and possibly changed the order of some sections, possibly to avoid detection, or perhaps because his copy and paste skills are also lacking.
An amusing example follows:

Rare Proof Coin with Queen on Reverse

Charles+Diana (sic) Wedding fivepound (sic) coin size Crown in case
This Commemorative Crown Coin Proof was issued to celebrate the marriage of His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales to Lady Diana Spencer, at St Pauls Cathedral on the 29th July 1981. Suppled in original transparent plastic protective / presentation case and therefore in superb UNC (Uncirculated ) condition. (non sequitur)
Obverse:
Conjoined profile portraits of Charles & Diana...
Reverse:
The second (decimal) portrait of the Queen facing right...

What's Up?
The coin on offer was clearly a normal issue (non-proof). These were not issued in plastic boxes, but many banks supplied them in such boxes for advertising and P.R. purposes.
The proof issue, which was in silver, were issued in plastic capsules within leatherette boxes, with certificates.
The photo used clearly shows a non-proof coin.
The Queen's head appears on the obverse of coins, not the reverse (as he obviously copied this from our website, we wonder how he managed to transpose the text or headings.

Err... What's Up Doc?
On 14th April 2010, we received an e-mail from Jonathon Rolf jon.at.home@btinternet.com:

eby (sic) listings

Reply?
There is not much motivation to reply to such a semi-literate, over-casual, semi-anonymous piece of crap.
As it happens, he will have received our auto-response which will given him all he needs to know. By 24th April, he appears to have done nothing about it, as he is still busy listing multiple items daily using large portions of text lifted directly from our website.
