  1. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    Noticed that yesterday after I just missed a pair of shield backs but I didn't bother even phoning to ask about the dates as I didn't expect anything in good enough condition or interesting enough.
  2. GSR

    I'll hold you to that and I'm sure someone will remind you that you predicted less than 20 and gold at 3 to 5k
  3. Storing precious metals?

    I have a small safe bolted to a concrete floor because it only weighs around 100kg or less so 1 person could easily carry it a short distance. Mind you most cheaper safes could easily be opened with a chisel and a hammer or a drill as they are quite thin and have no or very little drill protection.
  4. Danbury Mint

    How can they sell the same coin multiple times? Are you saying they don't deliver it to most buyers, deliver another or have counterfeit slabs?
  5. Silver Deals.....

    That or the I know nothing about 'items being sold' and/or so you will have to judge from the pictures.
  6. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    It was an 1892 half. Yet another to the collection
  7. The grading and identifying compared to US coins.
  8. Doesn't anyone else find the US grading companies aren't so great with British coins?
  9. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    Yes, I'd probably grade it as at the high end of VF and maybe just EF reverse but you could make a case for EF overall. I missed another yesterday that was gone before I could checkout but I did manage to grab a half. It will probably be a jubilee 1892 but you never know.
  10. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    It was two 71 and a 78. I already have a 71 so I asked for the 78.
  11. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    There was three to start with but two very common same dates so I just took the other one.
  12. Today I received.....

    Of course those sovs being BU instead of proof I guess they won't be inspected as well. In theory at least but knowing RM who knows if they even inspect their proofs properly now. Looks like there could be a light scratch at the rear of the horses back leg as well and maybe one even smaller one towards the tail.
  13. 2017 Britannia proof

    Looks like a guy in drag and the mintage has jumped again. I don't think the silver will hold its price. Not even compared to the last couple of years ones which have sometimes sold for less than the new price already.
  14. Do you send everyone's money via transferwise one at a time, incurring the fees each time, or as one transaction to minimise the fee?
  15. Sovereigns vs Queens Beasts, Britannias etc

    That's a £750 and £900 jump since last year. I feel that jump is a bit higher than usual but can't be sure as I don't buy every years and just recently had a clear out of old Spinks and Krause's.
