    Great idea! A movie about rejecting consumerism and then selling it on Netflix, Play Store, Amazon! Well done!

    hi daz, normally when you want info on company shares you hold you contact what's called its  share registrar, which I believe is this link
    https://www-uk.computershare.com/Investor/contactus/default.asp?cc=IE
    The Registrar. Computershare Investor Services (Ireland) Limited Heron House Corrig Road Sandyford Industrial Estate DUBLIN 18. Ireland. Map ... 239353 and is authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland
    or
    try this link

    and check your shareholding at bottom of page link
    hope helps dean.m

    I sold that one a while back Daz, but if you're looking for one i'll keep my eye open and let you know when/if i find something decent. You can find these in abundance in VF-EF, top grades are really hard to come by. I would say mine was GEF-AU or there abouts, so a benchmark for you to look at, as i said to Jester, i have an 1881 in MS63 i'm selling

    So, i've just found my old one on photo bucket after some searching


  18. daz liked a post in a topic by Madstacks in Steve and other Sov experts needed..find of as lifetime? or disappointment?   
    Coins confirmed as real:) they did not use an XRF, but have highly accurate scales - they were happy to buy them outright or loan on them there and then so that's good enough for me. We have debated selling two and keeping two, but have decided that they are really nice condition and will be good to keep as coins for a rainy day fund so going to keep them all. finding 4 sovereigns on ST Georges day of all days just seems like it was meant to be.
    Thanks for the advice everyone, kept me sane whilst waiting! 
  19. daz liked a post in a topic by Lindeman in Up close with the Queen today at the Newbury Races !   
    Well - while most days on the Forum we talk about the Queens Beasts or other coins from around the Commonwealth with Her Majesty on them all, today I got to see the Queen up close as she popped along to Newbury in time to see her horse Call to Mind win the 4.15 with Ryan Moore onboard. I have to say it was about 30 years ago I last saw the Queen - but I have to say it was a privilege to see her again, and she seemed totally at ease and us race-goers were delighted to see her (minimal fuss, but plenty discrete security as you would expect!). 
    My wife and I got this great view as she walked back to her Range Rovers ....and it was pretty cool to see her go up to collect the winners trophy after her horse won!!! Enjoy these pics.  Did seem surreal after looking at her on the coins ...and made me appreciate how dedicated she is to the country (and I am not even a major royalist...).

     Best of luck mate , i was in my last job for about 10 years and grew to hate it , i used to sit and dread going into work every night . it really stressed me out . In the end i said to my Mrs i cant do this anymore and surprisingly she told me to jack it in as she could see how miserable it was making me . I didn't go in that night and went in the next day to tell them I wasn't going back.
    The very next day i got a phone call from a factory i had applied to about six months before and had heard nothing back from , i went for a interview and started that night , I'm still there 14 years later.
    Sometimes things just work out so i hope it does for you as well mate as if you are in a job that you end up taking home with you it really is the pits and can easily drag you down. So best of luck
