Found while weeding the front hedge, this coin, which is 10 years older than me and therefore has a picture of George VI on the other side, has remained stubbornly brown even though I did attempt to clean it up with a soda bath. Soda being the generic term Americans use for fizzy drinks like Coca Cola. I tried diet coke (it wasn’t fizzy), WD40 and Viakal. Perhaps I should have tried a scrubbing brush. I imagine some bright spark will suggest Brasso, Sodium Bicarbonate or strong brandy. I quite like it the way it is.
Herb Miller lives in Rowlands Castle with his wife and two cats. He's been collecting SBs for nearly half his lifetime. If you ask him why he’ll say Simply Because. His favourites to date are the short but sweet, palindromic sub bus, the sulphurous brewmasters Googlewhack and of course, seriously bonkers, simply brilliant and silly B. He fully expects his short booklet to become a shortlisted bestseller.
