  1. cheap auction?

    Obviously fake.
  2. If you believe that AI and automation will truly take over the majority of jobs, then you would likely support then notion of Universal Basic Income. It's a viable idea.
  3. Royal Mint return policy?

  4. Royal Mint return policy?

    Are you Alex in disguise? You've bought 10kg of gold from your crypto gains... that's over £300,000. Why are you moaning about such inconsequential nicks when you've clearly bought for gold content and not condition?
  5. I'm not sure where you're getting 1M from. If you're new-ish to investing, take a look at Compound Interest. Investing $1000 a month for the next 22 years would only yield $1m if you achieved over 10.5% growth every single year, without fail. That is highly unlikely, in itself. Investopedia has some really great guides on this, maybe check them out?
  6. 15 greatest gold heists of all time

    This was entertaining - thanks Off to buy an old gunboat and sit off the coast of Guyana for a couple of months...
  7. £70,000 turnover in one year. eBay fees @ 11% because they have too much negative feedback for the 10% rate = £7,700 PayPal fees @ circa 3.5% = £2,450. So we're down to £59,850. Around 2,000 sales in the last 12 months. Let's call it £1.85 per package to post. That's another £3,700 gone. Now we're at £56,150... That's pre-tax, pre National Insurance... pre-insurance costs. At best, even if they retained the remaing £56,000 evenly between them and had no other costs, they'd be earning a little over £10/hr after tax. Bricklayers are in such high demand in most of England that they can take home £150 a day with no trouble at all - good ones can make more. This is a classic eBay PR story. With that said, good luck to them. Would be interesting to see who the backers are.
  8. Silver mistakes - yours or others

    I wouldn't call that a mistake by any stretch of the imagination. Quite the opposite, really.
  9. wanted 1957 or 1958 Gold Sovereign

    Being serious, you realise that the St George and the Dragon design has not altered, as you seem to suggest? It is the same design, a la Benedetto Pistrucci, as it has always been (barring a couple of notable exceptions). With that said, there is actually a notable difference between a '57 and '58 in the finish on the rim. You might want to check it out.
  10. Auctions

    The first bid takes precendence. However, this does not apply against bidders who are physically in the room on the sale day. For example: If Bidder A bids £200 GBP four days before the auction, and Bidder B also bids £200 GBP but just two days before the auction, the bid will go to Bidder A. However, if Bidder C is in the room and wants to bid £200 (on the increment), it will nearly always go to the bidder in the room. Or, alternatively, the auctioneer will offer the in-room bidder a low bid to ensure that they win the lot. I've bid £1500 for an item before the auction, and it sold for £1,505 in the room - a blatant disregard of proper practice, but all too common.
  11. wanted 1957 or 1958 Gold Sovereign

    Will you be naming and shaming the seller if you don't agree with their grading of the coin, given that you've stipulated that it mustn't be slabbed? After all, we all know that MS designations by American companies on British sovereigns can vary quite substantially, and occasionally with little apparent reason.
  12. Bloody hell. I thought that I was diversified with a couple of funds and some stocks & shares If you do feel that way, there is nothing wrong with taking some profits and buying back in if there's a fall. I see all of your investments are set to accumulation - time in the market is especially important for this; it certainly beats 'timing' the market.
  13. Need help/advice with gold from USA

    In short, no. Do your own research. Just remember to look out for the coins with holes in!

    Actually, I was the one who stuck up for you... how quickly you seem to forget. I was the only one to actually defend your right to moan, if I remember. Your ignorance of numismatics and terminology is undermining any legitimate argument you might have. Your attitude is rotten and I can't imagine that you'll ever be happy with a purchase because you expect numismatic condition at bullion prices. If you want numimatic condition, pay a fair price and stop moaning like a petulant child every time you don't get your own way. Thus far, you appear to have bought from Atkinsons (a negative experience), Chard (a negative experience) and now potentially MCM (dare I say it, probably going to be a negative experience) ... I will await your "My MCM Customer Experience" thread with baited breath.
