  1. Today I received.....

    Really is a beauty, glad it arrived safe and sound mate.
  2. Who buys gold at spot price ?

    I think dealers tend to buy below spot price. Hatton Garden for instance Current spot price around £227 for 1 Sovereign Buy 1 sovereign for £222.95 Sell 1 Sovereign for £234.33
  3. I am selling one of my recently graded 2014 proof Britannias, will include the original box & COA. Am asking for £320, delivery is included in the price. - Sold to Jester.
  4. Today I received.....

    Recieved my grades from PCGS for some of the coins from the last DNW auction. Am very pleased with the grades. Only sent in two coins from the 1902 set, will send in the rest later.
  5. Today I received.....

    I sent these direct to PCGS in America. I am still happy with the result and i knew beforehand that the chance of getting a PR70 for the 2014 Britannia would be pretty low, out of the 27 graded with PCGS only 7 are PR70. It wouldnt have been for the extra money a 70 would bring either, i just wanted a 70 grade of both coins for my own collection.
  6. Today I received.....

    I am goning to sell 1 of the 2014 Britannias and will sell the PR69 sovereign. Will keep the other two for my own collection.
  7. Today I received.....

    Well i finally have the grades from PCGS. Sent 2 x 2017 Proof Sovereigns and 2 x of the 2014 Proof Britannias. Sadly only 1 of the 4 got top grade, thanks to usual Royal mint spots.
  8. Group grading PCGS?

    You pay more sure, but i would also say it is less risk of them being lost. You can drop them at the Birmingham coin show if you want to to avoid shipping costs. In my experience so far PCGS in the states is slow at grading, i still have 4 coins waiting to be graded with them and it's been nearly 2 months. While PCGS Paris take 2-3 weeks.
  9. Group grading PCGS?

    You don't need to send it to the US. I send my stuff to PCGS Paris.
  10. Today I received.....

    I'm sure we will have plenty of these posts in the next few days. Received my Piedfort Sovereign.
  11. Today I received.....

    How long did it take? They have had my coins since the 30/5 and am still stuck "In Process" Sent mine to the PCGS USA due to the cheaper prices $32 vs 45 euro, in 5 days time will have been 2 months since I sent them; took 1 month just to get to PCGS. Think in future ill just pay the Europe rate.
  12. Today I bought.....

    Managed to win what I have waited all day for, over the higher estimate, but well below what people on ebay are asking for it.
  13. Today I bought.....

    Very Nice, was tempted to bid on that myself. Lovely toning. Won the below myself.

    Unlucky, indeed looks like a perfect florin. Watching the same auction. Want to bid on the 1902 proof set, but I know it's probably gonna go way over the estimate; considering people on ebay seem to be asking for 3-4x the upper estimate. Then I'm gonna end up regretting not bidding on something else earlier on in the auction. In this auction there is also an 1817 sov, estimate of 2-2.6k
  15. GENERAL ELECTION

    I'm pretty sure Blue Streak is retired and not in use by anyone. We only have our own politicians to blame for loosing these jobs, be it Labour or conservative both have not been a friend to UK manufacturing.
