You spent your time well anyway Tomo. I also like the 'Put and Take' spinner - A good show of finds!

Very good haul again and the state of the new coins is terrible.
Like the Take , Put, spinner got a brass one that belonged to my Grandad and used to play the game with me.
Good Luck for today ::g

A great collection for couple of hours.

Like everyone else I'm taken with the Put Take spinner, never even heard of this before, but google is our friend.

Ah, Put and Take. I used to play that on holiday with mum and dad 50+ years ago using 1d coins as counters. The game mysteriously used to finish whenever I spun a Take All. At 1/4d each, or more accurately 4 for a penny as farthings had gone by then, you could buy an awful lot of Black Jack or Juicy Fruit chews for a handful of coppers.

Here’s a brand new 'antique' spinner I bought at a flea-fair a couple of years ago.

What a haul!
I like the wire ring, whenever I see them I think "Ancient!", though they're usually not.
