Q.What is a profit said Martin?
A. you buy for a 1d and sell for 2d, interesting said martin?
Q.As I entered the toilet I saw Martin, he said will you buy this 1860 1d bronze for 10 gbp.?
He looked at me and I said Martin you are quick leaner – he frowned and said I am Phil. I said Phil teach Martin how to make a profit?
A.He said he just learned you buy for a 1d and add 10% that is “just simply”, multiply by 10.

Q.Phil want to buy this coin at 100 gbp, he said no it is too expensive and laughed, why so much now?
