  1. Tried the number, problem is the automated system doesnt understand me when i try to say the tracking number Damn my northern accent.
  2. Thanks for number. Have just spoke to Royal Mail who say it arrived in the US on 29th and seems to be stuck in customs. Here's hoping it gets released eventually. Will give it a few more days and if nothing happens will get in contact with them.
  3. What is the advantage of the app to just checking the site? As I say I'm still hopeful, but getting less so as everyday passes, especially when I see nothing except the usual "In-Transit". I don't know who to ring as my tracking number shows up on RM/Parcel force and USPS. Parcel force supposedly handle customer service for USPS but when I ring it says that tracking numbers beginning with RN contact RM. RM is all automated and says to wait as delivery to Europe can take 20 days and the rest of the world longer. Puts me off ever sending anything to the US for grading again.
  4. Yeah nothing. Have sent a "Missing Mail" request through the USPS website, but so far not response. I know some people have had to wait over a month before and I'm having the same issues with FedEx at the minute, albeit the other way USA>UK. (Was shipped 24th last month) I just hope they eventually popup or I've lost 4 of my favourite coins 2 x 2017 sovereign proofs and 2 x 2014 Britannia Proofs
  5. How long do your coins generally take to get delivered to NGC via Royal Mail Tracked & Signed? Reason I ask is I sent some coins to get graded on the 26th of last Month and still have the tracking come up as "In Transit", last scan was on 28th when they were sent to the US. Starting to get worried,
  6. I haven't been to the London coin fair, but iv'e been to the one in Wakefield a few times. With alot of the dealers traveling between both i think i can say what its like. In my opinion you would be better buying from ebay, sure deals can be had, but they are few and far between. Most of the stuff on offer tends to be for the Numismatic crowd and alot of the dealers only seem to be interested in the bigger spenders. Don't get me wrong it's still a fun day out and you also get to see/pickup coins that are way out of most peoples budget.
  7. I believe so too, but for some reason PCGS/NGC label them all as PR. Even Baldwin/London coins seem to advertise ones they have sold as proof.
  8. Received my Plain Edge Gothic Crown. A (near) perfect coin only ruined by a tiny scratch. Compared to my Undecimo crown.
  9. I can confirm that it nearly did nearly cost the price of a 1oz gold coin.
  10. A 1937 Half Sovereign, graded PR66.
  11. Very Nice. Had my eye on that too, but decided to bid for the 1902 Crown instead.
  12. I did also place a bid on that, but once it went over £2500 I knew I was bidding against people with much deeper pockets. I already have a pretty decent graded one in PR58, but was looking to upgrade and then selling my current one. I love the design of coins from around that era
  13. I do have quite a few high grade coins now, but I only started collecting numi coins from last year so hope to add many more over the next few years. Made a few mistakes buying cheaper coins over last few years. Am now following the quality over quantity rule.
  14. Thanks. He had a lot of nice coins up last week. That Gothic crown he was selling was also very nice.
  15. I have the 1937 £2. Am looking at getting the half sovereign eventually I regret not buying the sovereign last year when the prices were a little bit more reasonable. The £5 on it's own in decent condition is 4-5k, so way out of my league.
