    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

    1kg Silver Coin 2016 Koala

    The concerns are not that longer standing members won't pay. The concern we have is when a new member arrives we don't know who very quickly wants to sell. Normally i send the money bank transfer before the item is sent when dealing with established members. Unless it is a foreign currency transfer the cash is there immediately. i know i will get the goods as described. Everything is done on trust. If someone is new a member might well ask the coin is sent before payment. They will check it is ok and then send the money. If a member welshed on a deal their name would be mud, so they aren't going to do it. It just is not going to happen. But you would have to be dealing with an established member. Once you have sold a few items and you are seen to be 100% you have passed the initiation and all is well.

    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!

    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

    You're right, that's exactly why they do it. That and the reaction they get from some in the populace. Look at the increase in hate crime after Manchester, acts committed by people without the sense to realise they're doing just what the terrorists want.
