    BackyardBullion got a reaction from kimchi in 100g Hallmarked Silver Forum Bars - Payment & Shipping   
    Hello everybody!
    The 100g Silver Forum Bars are due back from Hallmarking this week! Which means that it is time to start gathering payment for the bars!

If you would like to add any bars to your existing reservation or if you have not reserved a bar yet then please get in touch! Feel free to comment on this thread to reserve your bars.

    Generally your information is spot on but if I may correct you as follows:
    The church shown is not Westminster Abbey but Winchester Cathedral and
    the Omron Rings or "Orion star constellation" allows photocopiers and scanners to realise that they are being abused to counterfeit money.

    BackyardBullion got a reaction from Gorseinonboy in 100g Silver Forum Bars Reservations - NOW OPEN   
    So here we have the reservation thread for the 100g Silver Forum Bars!
    PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY
    This thread is specifically for reserving 100g Silver Forum Bars. I will be collecting payment for these bars at a later date (probably starting next week). 
    Want a specific number?
    So how this will work today is you can reserve specific serial number(s) or just have a random serial number(s) assigned to you from the unclaimed ones. Maximum of 5 bars per person at this stage. 
    These reservations will be done on a first come first served basis and ONLY on this particular thread. PM'ing me or reserving on another thread or YouTube etc will not count. 
    If there are people who claim the same number I will adjudicate based on the order that your comment appears on this thread. Ultimately I am the referee here so my decision is final. 
    Don't mind which number you want?
    For those of you who do not want a specific serial number but still want a bar, please type "x1 Any" or "x2 Any" etc. and I will assign you random numbers in due course. Please note that people who reserve "Any" will have preference over people who reserve a specific number later on based on the first come first served basis of this thread. 
    I will do my best to update as the thread progresses which serial numbers are available. Please look through previous comments before asking to help with this.
    Remember, I am only human and I hope if there are any issues or situations where duplicate numbers are requested we can sort it out cordially!
    The following numbers are not available to reserve at this time:-
    #1 (reserved for @ChrisSIlver)
    #2 (reserved for me!)
    #150 (this will be raffled off at a later date)
    Good luck everyone!
    As a reminder here are the important facts about these bars
    Total Mintage: 150
    Delivery date: First week of October 2017
    Prices: Based on membership as follows
    Standard member £83
    Premium member £75
    Premium gold member £67
    Postage: +£3 - However free postage will be offered if you purchase more than one bar. International postage will be more - if you would like an accurate quote please get in touch. 
    Maximum order per person: 5 bars (initially)

    I reckon theres lots of collectors around, as a lot of stuff marketed at high price above spot and that wouldn't make sense if the main market was the stacker cult.   To get a better feel for coins have a look on youtube, particularly Backyard Bullion and Shadow Stack channels and those link by them.  Views, reasons to buy silver or budgets ( ) may differ, there's loads of nice silver to see and information about silver.  Coins look in the flesh/video than stock photos on a web page, new Santa Maria a good example, didn't think much from original pictures but looks great on video.

    Yes this is a possibility but at the end of the day none of us knows how much (if any) premium would be on these coins in 10 years time. So if it is free to change it for a new one then do it. If it is going to cost you money to send back and have a new one sent out then probably just writing it off to bad luck. 
    You will always be able to sell this coin to a dealer for 98% spot regardless of condition so you may lose out on a small premium but you will definitely be able to sell it. 
    An example today. Atkinsons has them listed for £275 which is about a 14% premium over spot. If gold doubles in 10 years then spot value alone will mean your coin is worth £500. If you had a perfect one and tried to sell with a 14% margin your sale price is £570. 
    So the difference can be significant but we just don't know where premiums will be then!

    I thought it was the best word in the circumstances. My 'trendy' friend in London advertisingdisneyland drops words like that all the time, and every time he glances around to see if everyone noticed how 'suave and sophisticated' he is, and if all seems well he brings out his latest rare Whisky or wine, (with a flick of the hair and the flourish of the hand of course).
    Otherwise a really lovely bloke, but I choose not to spend much time with him, for some reason...

    I suppose it depends on a few things...
    Are these just bullion for you? Are you planning to get them graded? If so then definitely  get a replacement. 
    Is it a long term investment? If so then they will appreciate with the natural gold price over time and regardless of condition they will always be worth their weight in gold (to coin a phrase) so this ding will really not impact it that much. 
    Enquire as to how you might return/replace and whether this will cost you and how much it will cost you. At the end of the day they are BU coins and some small nicks and scratches are part of the parcel sometimes. 
    If it was me, I wouldn't be bothered as they would go in the pension pot and not be sold (hopefully) for another 30+ years.

    Soz, I may have seemed a bit 'insouciant' (think that's the right word at least! German or something innit? Quelle fromage!) but it was anything but I promise, I was really delighted to bag this number (though yet another purchase I didn't expect to make thanks to this forum lol)!
    I didn't hesitate for a second - I posted immediately I saw it was still up for grabs and then PMed BYB within seconds. I know BYB a little bit from buying some other pieces off him so I think he may have worked out my somewhat dry 'sense of humour' at times (?!!) reflected in my post on the thread, but it was the PM that secured the bar.
    I've bought from BYB twice (so far - this'll be the third time!) and he is an absolutely stand up guy imo. He's clear and principled. If someone else had already PMed him about this bar in the time it took me to post on here and then send a quick private message I have no doubt he would have told me 'sorry it's gone, I've already had a private message about it, I just haven't had a moment yet to post that on the thread'. And I would have trusted that 100%.
    Tldr version; I really trust BYB (in product, honesty and fairness), I trust these bars, I trust this forum, and I think Chris and BYB teaming up to do this has been an incredible thing to promote all of those aspects :))

    Welcome
    Regarding your GS.be / STG order, you may wish to see if @BackyardBullion is doing an October order. Ive just had quite a few coins from the Aug / Sept GS.be group order and save on shipping fees.
    Ive also just bought some items from silvertrader.uk ( newcastle ) his prices seem really competitive so may be worth looking at too, through the website not through his ebay though as the costs are greater.
    As of what to collect/ stack there is loads of you tube vids to watch which may help you have more of an idea. @Numistacker @BackyardBullion @ShadowStack all have good videos with loads of info.
    This is all info that was offered to me as a newbie and i've definitely benefited from it.
    Everyone seems really helpful on here so don't be afraid of asking before committing to purchases, just helps me with peace of mind.
