Consider the following graph which plots the catalogue values stated in the years shown on the x-axis for a 1930 sixpence in uncirculated condition (blue line). The green line plots the initial value stated for 1969 if such value were to appreciate at an annual percentage equal to the inflation rate for each of the subsequent years up to the present. The red line plots each of the stated catalogue values for each of the stated years in real terms i.e. the equivalent value present terms. To a trained eye such a graph would certainly lead to thoughts of a great big walloping as opposed to accolades for catalogue work done overthe last 30 or so years!!
This is but one of over 100 such examples for different years and denominations. All of which will be available soon on our website.
When in doubt knock 'em out!!
