    Hi Jake, just curious -- do 1889 pennies make it more difficult to spin?

      No, it was just because it was the only penny I had at the time. Also it's meant to be longest time to spin ANY penny. So I'll send a message to record Setter and ask them to change it.

      No problem, Jake. We've changed it -- had to leave "British" in the title as we already have a record set by spinning an American penny. Thanks!

      Oh, all right then. Also, just on the thought of coins today I went metal detecting and found a 1918 Australian threepence with king George the 5th and peripheral toning, which means darker on the outside. It can be sold for $870!, but If I sell it I'll try getting $1000 for it
