Blimey Rory, :-O you've got a better job than me............and I'm retired! :D

By the way, I couldn't think of a polite way of suggesting you get the GMP cleaned up - so I won't even mention it 8-| :D Be Lucky - ss47

Hi Ss47....I have to work like a pit pony other days to catch up ;)
The poor old GMP needs anew hand grip and the control box cover is missing its plastic window :(

Portrait sides nice and it’s got a good strong date.

What a beauty. They are normally quite worn on the obverse( the ones I’ve seen) but yours is very crisp. Well done again. Ps I’ll watch again with baited breath as it worked today. 👍
