Quote from: Alan71 on June 24, 2016, 12:25:54 AMThanks Andy for that info, much appreciated. Just to confirm, the ones you show with plus signs are ones not in my collection (other than in sets) that definitely did circulate, whilst the ones with minus signs didn't circulate but are in my collection. Those are most likely from broken-up sets (I bought them as I have them now, I didn't break sets up). The 1990 ones are definitely from a broken-up set, as is the 1971 5p (which is indeed a proof - I meant to remove it from my list before I posted it).Did the 1997 5p and 20p definitely circulate then? I've never seen any on eBay, but if yours look circulated then I guess they must have done. And the 1992 50p? Again never seen any, but it's quite a high mintage to be rare.Just this week I got a 1988 50p off eBay which does look circulated, but again could have been broken up from a set long ago.

It certainly doesn't look like it was from a broken set. I could easily believe it did circulate for ten years. And as I write, there is a similar one on eBay.
