    HawkHybrid got a reaction from Pampfan in Silver mistakes - yours or others   
    silver takes time to understand. one of the mistakes
    I've made is overestimating the liquidity of silver and
    overestimating my understanding of it. as a result,
    like many who don't properly understand the difference
    between junk silver, generic rounds and government
    mint silver, I sometimes chose generic rounds. don't let
    your 'government is getting it wrong' ideas to influence
    your choice towards generic rounds, as they are usually
    the worse of the 3 for newer stackers.
    (uk relevant opinion)
    (if I can continue to put in place safeguards so that my
    future mistakes makes as small a financial impact as
    possible. I can continue down the silver stacking road
    and see where it takes me)

    HawkHybrid got a reaction from JunkBond in Victoria "Lucky Dips"   
    the impression I get is that lucky dip half sovereigns are
    quite worn if they are victoria. I think atkinsons sells
    more valuable coins as individual sales separate from
    the lucky dip, so there is a chance that the coin pool is
    already sorted.

    I am observing this thread with no bias. TBH I don't care for the tit for tat...BUT Im with BullionBilly when I read that question I thought it was a genuine question posed to you and not trolling. You asked for something very specific in your post and I thought it was genuinely asking. Collectors are very fickle believe me I know and some people do want to go the extra mile, I think you just took it as an insult.

    No,the first post was HH`s
    ''that's going to be difficult. how do people tell?
    are magnified photos required?''
    I find the ''magnified photos required'' pure evil,pure trolling.

    @Alex I whole heartedly believe that @HawkHybrid posed a genuine question. It seems like the topic escalated from there.

    And although I can't deny that this topic has offered me some entertainment on a Sunday night, I don't think continuing it is constructive, so I have locked the topic.

    Those who have this particular coin for sale will be able to PM you with pics etc as requested.

    further research is required but I assume a specialist in
    this case would be a grading company or a company
    that is part of a recognised numismatic association that
    deals in the exact coins that you like. maybe ask around
    companies that are members of the bnta.
    (maybe part of the magic is to discover)

    no one does, that's the politics of promising something for 
    nothing that we live in today. what's the reality?
    in practice if your creditors never got paid. how many creditors
    would you be left with over the long term?
    using future taxes to pay for current spending works especially
    well if you have a growing population. there are more future
    tax payers to pay off the current debt accrued. there is more
    future tax revenue(on average) without the need to raise the
    tax per person. growing government debt in line with a growing
    population works.

    maybe I should have used 'the promise to pay off the
    debt from future taxes'. governments spend first and
    receive settlement of that debt at a later date. the
    payment of that debt is not in £sterling but the work
    required to acquire that £sterling in order to make tax
    payments. work that foreign holders of £sterling may
    find useful and exchange their £sterling for.

    2nd that, what will you do if you have a complaint about the
    quality?
    maybe consider getting it in person from a coin specialist
    after checking the coin to meet your exact requirements?

    I slice a cake fairly for 2 people. both get a slice of

    one day I unexpectedly have 2 guests, I slice the
    same cake(last one) for 4 people. each get a slice
    of cake that is half the size of the slice for 2 people.
    some decisions have consequences and cannot be

    gold is actually one of the most flexible elements/metals when it
    comes to uses. the reason why gold is used only in cases where
    it cannot be replaced is because it it expensive. the high price of
    gold have restricted its application. think of it like expensive wine
    only has uses on rare special occasions but cheaper wine is
    consumed throughout the year. is expensive wine less useful than
    the cheaper wine?
    from what I read, my belief is that silver is not half as rare as
    people claim it to be. historically silver came out of the ground at a
    ratio of 12:1 or higher. why is it currently mined at 9:1? the silver and
    gold market is a demand driven market. it is mined at 9:1 because
    there is only demand for 9:1. it's not because silver has got more
    scarce. since it was demonetised silver demand have come largely
    from industry. there is more silver than industry needs at any given
    moment. if it wasn't for coins and bars (investment demand), silver
    would be coming out of the ground at a ratio of 8:1 like it did pre
    2009.

    it's about magnitude of fluctuation. silver dropping recently
    ~6% over 2 weeks would be a nuisance that is not too frequent.
    bitcoin moves 10% or more in a day is much more difficult to
    handle, especially if your margins are 10% or less.

    people come to the silver forum from hearing silver will go to
    the moon. discussions on the forum make them realise that
    'not any time soon' is probably the right attitude towards silver.
    sovereigns are plenty liquid and tradable while they wait.

    the spread is currently up on trading gold at hgm.
    cheapest sovereigns have a spread of 5%(3,-2).
    gold bars have a spread of 6%(3,-3).
    from what I remember hgm's stock of cheapest sovereigns
    was more intermittent(flood, drought) during at least parts
    of 2014-2015.
