I have had the day off work and not alot to do so i decided to pull the stack out for a sorting. Wanted to tube up some elephants and check for any new milky's. 2015 pandas are milking which i thought odd. Anyways, ended up taking a few quick pics to post up. The picture quality is rubbish but everyone knows what most coins look like.
That is the complete stack above ^^^^^^^^^^^
Below are my tubes of britannias, x1 2012, x1 2015, x3 2016 & x1 2017, tube of milked 1.5oz polar bears, tube of 2015 2 oz turtles and tube of 1/2oz apmex rounds. The rolled coins are my x120 1/2oz lunars along with x4 2oz's and x10 1oz's. Almost forget the 2008 5oz libertad.
Next, i have my 500gram and 10oz silver bars, queens beast and x2 ms-69 coins. In the boxes are a 2000 queens mother sterling proof coin, 210 brit, 1985 silver proof £1 and a boxed 2011 1/2 sov. You can also see the sheet of 2016 pandas under the 2015 and 2016 congo garilla's. Bars, graded and boxed are mostly impulse and ebay bargins for me.
Now we have 3 years of koalas, 2 years of kooks, 1 year of kangaroos, 2 years of libertads and 3 years of elephants. These are stacked in piles of 5. On the bottom row, there is tailed eagles, the UK lunar series, zanzibar qr codes coins and 2014 pandas. These are in piles of 3. These are coins most of us buy every year, easy to trade.
Next up are my milky maples and birds of prey series. The only 2 coins none milked coin i have are the 25th anniversary and the superman ones. Along the bottom, theres a 2013 bitcoin, zombuff and ramdon mint stuff. Theres also my x4 SBSS coins, you cant really see them. Theres a 2013 slave queen, 2014 feedom, 2015 cannabis and 215 silver bull. In the bottom corner, you can just about make out a 2009 koala.
Below are more random coins that i have got in parts of lots, seen of offer are added to make up an order. Got a couple of good ones, 2004 kook won from ebay, 1985 libertad and 2011 panda. Nothing else really special
Then i have the britannia date run from 98 through the 2017. Have a few extra 01, 05 and 11's along the bottom. Need to buy the wooden box for these.
Packed up and ready to go back into storage for another while. I understand a lot would not entertain the idea of posting there stack but i feel safe enough on here. Hope you've enjoyed a quick snap of my hard earned stack
Stack on bro's and hoe's !!!!
These are my takeaways from the thread
Andy is a perfectly fine legitimate seller... unless you're unhappy with a coin and want a refund
If you ever want a refund, he will begrudgingly do it but don't expect to buy any more coins from him
+ People here seem very worried about souring Andy as a contact because they might lose out on their Chinese Medal crack fix
I know, I know...and I have learned from the experience (and all of everyone's constructive comments) on how it should be done. You are right Steve - maybe a couple of extensions are better than one, but that leads to the question of whether a third is necessary if another late bid comes in. Maybe I have learned to just offer items as "for sale" with a fixed price😊😊 and forget the auction format (stick to eBay for that)
I am happy to report that both Bosse and Quicksilver will both receive a nice MS70 Dragon & Phoenix - so all ended well.
Some US pickups, some from MCM (silver slabs and QB griffns), Choice Bullion (fractional gold 1/10, 1/20 Libertads), Son Montuno and Coin Shoppe (silver Libertads proofs) and and some today from my favourite coin shop in CA - Oxbridge Coins in San Francisco (quarter eagle and the 1967 sov).
Unluckily though some of my other orders got delayed and will have to rest in the US until my next trip - so I will post those when I get them!
Pleased with the gold Eagle quarter (my first), - and I love the detail on the MS70 Dragon & Phoenix. Also my first ever silver Panda...probably will not be collecting them though.
