    I think it was a fair deal in many ways and on others Adrian won. I was too generous with my offer and he said yes too quickly. The 1821 was details and if I had Unslabbed it and auctioned it I would have got between £800 and £1100 less eBay fees of at least £100. The 1825 had been slightly polished but got a clean AU58 and would have sold for £950 or so at auction. Less £100. That had a value of say £1700 or so for the two and I threw in another more bullion sovereign too. I provided tons of value to the deal and Adrian has some potential to add value to my coins and extract his profit. At the same time his £2500 Sovereign was valued by me for £2100 in that condition 64 cameo. Some might have said £1900 but the 1911 proofs are very desirable and only 3,000 were minted. All in all I might have lost out on the deal by £200 in total so I could have dealt better but I have one first class coin in my collection now and can gradually look for the others in that year. I will also look for a pre Vic sovereign in MS to add to my collection too.

    I don't normally post my purchases but thought I would share this little 1/10 kiwi gold doo-darr I picked up locally in town yesterday as I have not seen one on my travels before or on the forum. £107 I paid which was fair enough

    GENERAL ELECTION

    I think a Con majority of 70. Labour have had a better campaign than they could ever have expected which will prevent a landslide, but when push comes to shove we all know that Middle England doesn't really do socialism, and the electorate won't have forgotten how the parliamentary Labour party has been riddled with infighting and trying to usurp its leader for the last 18 months. I also think that, in today's social-media driven world where virtue signalling is the thing to do, it only drives "shy Tories" underground even more, and that, despite whatever adjustments they have made to their models since 2015, they are very likely to understate Con support ever more. The Left haven't engaged any serious debate, they just shout louder, so the Con supporters just go into their bunker, don't even bother to talk to pollsters, and instead do their talking in the voting booth. Also, recent terror attacks have focussed the mind... can you really imagine Diane Abbott dealing with a national terror alert?

    Interment camps for radicals and people with dodgy internet history sounds like George Orwell's worst nightmare to be honest. People will say if you do xyz to this group in an effort to reduce radicalisation, you make it worse and its true. They can be taken out of the game without us having to become nazi's. Deportation is fair, low cost and doesn't take anyone's freedom to believe whatever they want away. Which is what we are all about. You can believe in whatever you want, but we draw the line at driving cars over people and stabbing them in the name of the sky fairy you choose to worship. If you cross the line, or plan to cross the line, you and your family forfeit your property and don't get to play in our country any more. But it won't happen. A frantic few days of hashtagging will be about the sum of what is done, which is why we can expect this to continue indefinitely.

    I didn't take any video at the show this time. The coin was marked up at £2,500 and that's a bit high I think but I did want to start to collect the 1911 proofs as well as the 1937 proofs.

    Hi Roy, I purchased some Silver Koalas from GoldSilver.BE after a fair bit of reading on this forum about a month ago, hence the reference in my first post here regarding the useful information I had gleaned regarding purchasing. After further browsing of the forum I have gained more of an insight into the various avenues one can go down regarding Silver collection/stacking and would like to free up a little bit of money in order to expand my collection in other areas - a wider variety of coins. My apologies for diving straight into the trading section with no reputation and a relatively expensive item for sale. As with my first purchase of silver, I have been a little over enthusiastic!

    I can point to passages in everybody's Bible that tell you how beating your slave within an inch of his life is fine, so long as you don't kill him. Rules on selling your daughter as property. On situations where stoning to death is permissible. God's guidelines on slaughtering the men, women and boys of your enemy nations, but taking the little girls 'for yourself' is ay okay. Wholesome tales of justified infanticide, and the fatal mauling of children who insulted the prophet Elisha. The list goes on. Judaism and its late blooming cousin Christianity have, for the most part, thankfully grown well beyond these early feudal doctrines.. though the divine guidelines are still there in the testament for all to see. Islam has its horrors too, also writ in stone. All these holy books are ripe for madmen, charlatans, self-proclaimed prophets and the dangerously oppressed to pick up and wield as carte blanche for any number of atrocities. And they have been. But it seems like Islam is the last of the Abrahamic children yet to grow up and stop waging bloody conquest in god's names. If Jim Jones picked up a Qur'an instead of a Bible, maybe the results would have been far worse than they already were. In place of kool-aid at gunpoint, you might have had a People's Caliphate of Guyana. At one time or another all these holy books have justified hell on earth in search of heaven. But in good hands they all demand charity, hospitality, compassion and kinship. They establish literally impossible ethical absolutes but ask their readers to strive anyway, and many do. Christians and Jews aren't stoning their sinners to death in the streets. It wasn't always so, but now they are essentially 'religions of peace', alongside Buddhism and.. Jedi. In non-Sharia countries all around the world, that's generally true for Muslims too. But we have to call them 'moderates'.. why? Apologetics, for the sore thumb of rampant extremism. The problem of violence isn't only in Islam. But I think it's obvious they have the monopoly on actually acting on it still. And until the violent extremist interpreters of Islam are completely gone, 'moderates' will always live in the shadow of their outrageous brethren. And with that comes a whole range of public opinions. At best, a tragically misunderstood people of peace and poetic recitation who have centuries-old doctrines in their sacred song that no longer apply. At worst, seen as sleeper agents in our midst awaiting the next foreign policy faux pas that leaves a leaderless vacuum begging to be filled by vengeful Islam, who will radicalise the domestic agents against their host nations. Is it too much to hope that the problem of extremist interpreters of Islam be solved by their moderate peaceful brothers and sisters? Probably. So the vicious cycle continues.

    Its not really the point just look at what happened at charlie hebdo etc.I could certainly find a lot more evidence that there are some sects of islam that teach exactly the opposite of peace i was going to post an undercover video but i'm not trying to incite stuff I'm just trying to say that if you deny that there is a problem of violence in islam and it is completely related to the teachings then you have your head in the sand.Its like i said earlier we dealing with modern day puritans.Remember we had a civil war in this country over religion.we had catholics protestants and puritans who were an extremely conservative sect of protestantism ALL CHRISTIAN AND BASED ON THE BIBLE .i'd say that we are dealing with a very similar thing here!There were religious wars for hundreds of years in europe I am just drawing paralells with history. Up until the reformation we had the roman catholic church who was the arbiter of the religion and controlled the doctrine.With islam you have sunni,shia,etc etc and no unifying body just different sects with their own interperitation of the texts.So you have one sect who are perfectly peaceful and another who read and interpret the texts differently. What your suggesting is like me comparing all christians to branch dividians i'm making a nuanced statement. As a side note I just remembered bilderberg is happening this weekend.Nothing like a good terror attack to push it down the news order!

    Many a time I have hesitated to buy what eventually proved to be the latest thing and a good, profitable punt, and missed out. Conversely, I don't think I have ever jumped in quickly and have it proved to be a mistake. You can take what you want from that. Regarding the latest Peter Rabbit, prices may be depessed now but I don't think it will ever be a loser and I have grandkids if all else fails,

    Wise words about wise words. I am guilty of getting carried away sometimes. My 6 rabbits look down at me from the shelf and say "what were you thinking?" It can pay to be cautious and wait and see. I don't think these Nanjing Pandas are the greatest ever design and I don't think they'll nearly as good as the 2016 design. The mintages are so low that I have no doubt they will sell out, but will they be a brilliant investment? Only time will tell. I have ordered some of these but I think the brand-new garden panda series could be a better bet at the issue price.

    And very wise words, just because someone else and a few others like something doesn't mean you have to. Look at the Peter rabbit now, everyone was tripping over themselves for 1, now they're for sale at issue price, glad i stayed away from those, another is the 2oz beast bullion, although i have hope for the Unicorn of Scotland in 1oz

    Here's what the mayor of London said this time: 1:45am "The Metropolitan Police are responding to the horrific terrorist attack at London Bridge and Borough Market. My thoughts are with everyone affected, and I'd like to thank the brave men and women of our emergency services who were first on the scene and will be working throughout the night. I am in close contact with the Met Commissioner and senior officers and am being kept updated on all developments. I will be attending the government's emergency Cobra meeting later this morning. London Bridge Station is closed and we are asking people to avoid the area. The situation is still unfolding and I would ask all Londoners and visitors to our city to remain calm and vigilant. Please report anything suspicious to the police, but only call 999 in an emergency. We don't yet know the full details, but this was a deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners and visitors to our city enjoying their Saturday night. I condemn it in the strongest possible terms. There is no justification whatsoever for such barbaric acts." 7:15am "There aren't words to describe the grief and anger our city is feeling. I'm appalled and furious that these cowardly terrorists deliberately targeted innocent Londoners and visitors enjoying their Saturday night. I condemn unequivocally these terrorists in the strongest possible terms. They are evil cowards and London will never be cowed. We will never let them win." ~Sadiq Khan http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-40147014?ns_mchannel=social&ns_source=twitter&ns_campaign=bbc_live&ns_linkname=5933ab95e4b091eb4aaeb583%26'We will never let them win' - London Mayor Sadiq Khan%26&ns_fee=0#post_5933ab95e4b091eb4aaeb583

    Because they want the reaction against moderate Muslims with the intention of them being pushed down the radicalised line because of that treatment. The perpetrators of hate crime are doing what the terrorists want, the victim of that hate crime is naturally more likely to blame the society from which their assailant came from and thus more likely to sympathise with the radical cause.

    I was saying exactly this same thing to my dad yesterday. I don't really understand why they time it like that, since as you say it seems to only go against their interests when countries vote emotionally and harsher legislation passes. Unless.. they are deliberately seeking those knee-jerk reactions by governments in hope of boosting home-grown terrorism: stoking the flames of hate against their own moderate brethren, so they will in turn better sympathise with a perceived Islamic struggle?

    GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    I haven't bought that much from them lately as I find shield sovs and especially halves go in under 1 or 2 minute. There is no way I'm paying the extra for a jubilee half so I usually miss out. I can often buy a known grade and year from a dealer for around the same price in many cases now once I have haggled the price slightly. This is much better than paying for an unknown grade from HGM. I've had a few that look exmount judging by the dirt in places where the mount clasp would have been or are dinted. I don't think many of the staff are experienced enough to give you a good estimate as to the grade etc,.

    Good luck to them, a business decision. It may work out for them, it may not. Business can't have been easy lately; spot all over the place and I notice some coins have been sticking around a while. Saves me phoning up and asking for the heads I want.

    Six Pence None the Richer

    As a sixpence collector I would agree it is a niche area - my reason was my Dad collected shillings and florins and I couldn't afford halfcrowns! In the UK other denominations have traditionally been more popular, such as the halfcrown, shilling, penny and farthing. Sixpences are much more popular in the US (behind sovereigns and they don't seem to have any interest in shillings🤔) and I expect that when I come to sell it will have to be through a US auction house which is why I have been having things graded and now tend to buy graded coins. If you want a numismatic challenge, rather than pure investment, such as looking for new die varieties etc then any niche area of world coins would fit the bill. It is amazing how much knowledge is missing.😄
