  1. Today I Received

    30 more 1840s shields, 100 unsorted Sorry if it's getting boring posting the same pictures up, I need to find time to sort through them all and find some nice ones to photograph
  2. Yes I'm fully aware of the risk of keeping it funded, but it went from 10k to 60k since the last time it thought about it! These casascius coins did use to sell for crazy amounts of money, but the more bitcoin gains in value the less premium they will attract. I mean who has 60k to buy this off me now? It really will be a historic coin being the first physical bitcoin (manufacturer) so I have no interest in selling or profiting from it, I think it cost me like 70bitcoin when I bought it! So the chance of profiting is 0 anyway
  3. Spam like this would be removed or automatically caught by spam filters (Askimet for example), on most forums. I don't see the value in leaving clutter like this but that's your call!
  4. Why hasn't this ponzi been removed by a mod? @morezone
  5. Legal tender of the internet
  6. So, i was going through some old photos and found these pics, i forget i have this for at year or two at a time. The picture is really awful so excuse that!

    Shame it has the litecoin logo plastered on it and not bitcoin
  8. Today I Received

    25 shields, all 1840s. More worn than other years but at the price paid is to be expected. Few nicer ones though and some different variations. Haveanother 30 on order so hopefully some rarer overstates etc to come!

    Shields! Not sure what is going on with the lighting (phone camera pic) but none of them are black like the edges ones look 😂 Yet to sort through but they are all very nice, a few cleaned but that's it. 35 more to come tomorrow!

    What microscope do you have? My first Google came up with a Zeiss digital stereozoom, now that piece of kit would be fantastic for overdate inspection, but it says "call for price" which is always a worry https://www.zeiss.co.uk/microscopy/website/clp/gad/smartzoom/szm/smartzoom-5-digital-microscope.html

    I'm still to pay over 300 for any BU sovereign, but that shield makes me want to.
  13. Today I bought.....

    55 shields, with 25 being 1840s. Blind purchase so fingers crossed for some ok ones
  14. How to handle gold coins?

    Unless they are proofs or modern i handle with bare hands, like everyone else did when they were minted
  15. As per title, if anyone has these for sale please PM me Thanks
