  1. The pound being lower has helped certain sectors of our economy though (manufacturing), the order books haven't been this strong since the 80s. Sure foods and goods that are imported have risen as a result, but sterling was overvalued before Brexit. As someone who works for an engineering company the last 2 years before brexit were shite (Not helped by the oil price fall), sales for new machinery were slow and in one case we had a certain customer who built parts for a certain British car loosing contracts to European countries who were cheaper thanks to a lower Euro.

  6. Today I bought.....

    Something I don't normally go for . Bought this from todays DNW auction, went for way over the Estimate thanks to someone else who kept bidding against me - but I really life the gothic design. Its silver and 58mm in dia.

  8. Today I bought.....

    Bought myself a 1937 Sovereign, have wanted one for a while. I just need to get the £5 then my 1937 collection is complete.
  9. Today I Received

    Might do. Anyway i recieved the PCGS photos. Compared to the 1902 proof that got PR63 I just don't understand how the 1908 got a grade and that 1910 didn't.
  10. Today I Received

    Yea, potentially there could be damage on the rim, does look abit warped near the E. But you would think if it was bad enough to warrant a damage grade it should be noticeable from the front/reverse. I might resubmit it, but knowing my luck it would just end up with the same grade. Ill see if I can see any damage when I receive my PCGS photos.
  11. Today I Received

    I did Inspect them both before I sent them and I didn't notice anything that would warrant giving it a low grade, never mind a damaged grade. I wish PCGS/NGC would give reasons as to why they apply these grades, especially when the damage isn't clearly visible. The damage to the nose on the 1908 is worse than anything I can see on the 1910.
  12. Today I Received

    Well I have received my grades from PCGS, some good news and some bad. My 1902 Proof Matte coins all received pretty decent grades and the Sovereign and 1/2 Half Sovereign both actually got graded, these I was worried about as at the auction they were marked as "Cleaned". PCGS seemed to disagree with this. The bad news is my 1910 1/2 Crown got "Details Damage" which I disagree with. The 1908 was in much worse shape and actually has a few marks on it and yet got a grade. The 1910 was bought from auction and was described as EF or better. Maybe someone else can see something I'm not seeing, except for the mark on the reverse on the right side I can't see anything that would warrant a damage grade. I'm now torn between taking it from the slab and reselling it or just accepting the grade.
  13. Today I bought.....

    Won a 1908 & 1910 Half Crown on the DNW Auction, will eventually send them to PCGS for grading.
  14. Today I Received

    Really is a beauty, glad it arrived safe and sound mate.
  15. 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
