    This video seems to show it doing a half decent job by simply using a storm-lighter on affected areas.
    Anyone who wishes to have a dabble with affected coins, feel free to report back here their success or failures with using this technique

    I have also read on my travels a method like this is often used as the alternative to a pay day loan or to raise funds very quickly.  
    Funds are in your paypal instant, instantly withdrew to bank, money used to fix broken {insert whatever emergency}, you know you get paid from job in a few days time, time comes to refund or dispute is opened.  Funds are there and then original transaction refunded.
    You effectively have a short term loan of a decent chunk of change at zero % with no additional credit searches against your credit file
  7. Paul liked a post in a topic by morezone in 1/10 gold, what to buy?   
    Depends on if you're stacking or collecting.
    If it's stacking weight then get sovereigns which are low premium and be disposed of very quickly for a quick exit/emergency/etc.
    If you're collecting then you can choose whatever you want.  Disposing of these will take more time since you will want to get back the premium you paid.  Offloading to a dealer isn't really an option.
    I collect 1/10ths so I'm happy to buy those despite the large premiums.  I also have sovereigns and half sovereigns which I've collected because of the different obverse and reverse and some I've bought just for the weight (low premium).  These will be the first to go in an emergency and will be used to balance CGT on exit.  For maximum potential with the 1/10ths I'd get Pandas, Elephant, Lunar 2, RAM Lunar, Canadian Call of the Wild, and anything else with a changing design.

    Thanks @MickB I have been throwing odd cash over to Royal Mint from my bank account for a few months now, rounds down amounts, £10s and £20s here and there. 
    Got enough for a cheapy 1/4 gold griffin today, and doesn't even feel like i've laid out any cash for it.  the 1/4 griffin is nearly £15 cheaper than Atkinsons now  
    Thanks for posting

    Flash sale on the Royal Mint bullion site. 33% off everything until 8am tomorrow.
    edit; It's 33% off the premium. Not much of a deal then considering their prices are higher than most dealers:-(

    Sorry to veer this off topic and Petes original problem but i may help all eBay buyers of gold/silver with my advice here below
    @Sovereign Yeah, and these are the perfect accounts to get hacked.  Dormant accounts with established 100+ feedback, but no active selling (massive red flag)
    As it is not active it is unlikely to tip off the original owner of the eBay ID
    The items he has chose to list are all high tag (another red flag)
    eBay Feedback these days now works on a rolling basis, it is no cumulative. he also has a previous negative feedback 
    http://feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=frenkcash&&_trksid=p2047675.l2560&rt=nc&iid=321112537514&sspagename=VIP:feedback&ftab=FeedbackAsSeller
    Last red flag his actual feedback for selling is only some 10+ items, fair due some positives are from coins sales, whoever the MAJORITY of his visually appealing positive feedback is nearly all from buying (another red flag when buying gold from ebay) 
    Hope you both get your eBay issues sorted.

    So I finally got around to presenting these 1/10th brits, using a box from the RM and a custom insert (9mm deep high grade felt with 3mm base), fits perfect!
    Yes yes it's incomplete, but won't be long before it's done :D. Photos were rushed but i wanted to share, they really do look so good all together in person

    There is no right answer - it will go up or it can also go down.
    Like a few other "oldies" on this forum I piled into silver bullion as it rose & rose & rose in value topping £30 per ounce.
    It was heading "to the moon" so to speak and plenty of experts predicting eye-watering prices as the world woke up to holding PMs.
    If you have ever seen hungry fish in a lake turn the water into a boiling mass then that's what is was like with silver coins a few years back.

    Forecasting the future is best done using tea-leaves in the bottom of a cup.

    There are many publications on investing in PMs and many so called financial experts but the ones that were bullish and top of their game a few years ago are hiding somewhere today.
    Because silver is relatively cheap at present I personally see silver as a worthwhile investment for the future but where is the red line that determines when silver becomes expensive ? If we ever see spot near £30 then I will be unloading and buying shares & funds rather than metals with the fiat.

    The only way gold and silver will go up is if the economy collapses and we have a gold backed currency..I've been waiting for this to happen since 2012 listening to all the shills bullshit so we buy more silver...Bullion is a waste of time in my opinion.. That's why I stopped buying standard bullion coins and turned to proof coins with low Mintage..In 2012 I was paying nearly £30 a Oz for a standard bullion coin now 6 years later it's worth £15...Were as my zues coin for instance I bought for £90 and now it's worth £500+
