    Does anybody know what the 50p with BE PREPARED, wrote upon it with the fluer de leese, in the middle. I also have a 50p with what looks like to be a lady running then a thick line running through the middle of it with a cyclist on the other side of the line.There is another line which cross through the runner. It also has an X and part of an X ,to the right of the full X. On the other side ( HEADS) the queens neck runs through the P of fifty ‘P’ence lettering I think this is a misprint,a ‘second’
    I also have what looks like to be somebody carrying someone and what looks like the German iron lol I know it’s not the iron cross , maybe Victorian cross . Can anybody give me the value of the coins individually. Thank you very much in advance.
