    Shkreli is 'PharmaBro' - total genius but also kind of a dick.
    You might remember he was vilified for increasing the price of an AIDS drug by 5000%?  Turns out that he bled the insurance companies dry whilst providing the poor with free prescriptions.
    He's interesting, for sure.

    What is it with Germans and appalling customer service?  GS.be always seem to fall back on the 'scammer' retort... makes me think they have some real insecurities around their processes.
    Sorry that you've have another poor experience

    Those three lines are why cryptocurrency will not catch on in its current form.
    The lebel of technical knowledge is just so far beyond the Average Joe that they will never, ever trust it.  The only people to make millions from Bitcoin are the hackers, the creators and the company who manages to make it 'facebook-simple'.  One hard-drive failure and you've lost your money, as seen above.  Crazy risks.

    That's mostly wrong, unfortunately.  VAT registration is with the person, not the company.  Splitting two companies is a great way to attract an HMRC small-business audit, especially when selling similar items (i.e. Items that have a relationship to one another, coins and cases). 
    Anyway, it's none of my concern.  Best of luck with the sales, and the taxman

    Just reading through the post, shouldn't you be upgrading your membership to gold instead or being a premium member with such a good turnover considering you seem to be doing business here? Just curious

    What Gav is failing to tell you here is that he is heavily financially invested in this coin, and is trying to pump the value up.  He predicted they'd be $100 each, but they've seen a relative lack of price increase thus far.
    Thought you'd been told that pumping wasn't allowed on these forums, Gav? 
    His advice is not impartial and should be caveated.

    Ireland missing is certainly a strange decision.  It could quite easily have been finished in matte, to ensure a separation between the two countries.  Making NI an island of its own is downright odd.

    Not sure about this one.  The "outfit" is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.  So the Irish Free State is not depicted.  Looks like a propaganda publication trying to deny that Irish Republic exists at all.   A few other islands and parts of the mainland missing too.  Certainly different.  Maybe a video from the designer will help explain.
    Maybe the shape of things to come for the "new age" of coin collecting.

    I had the letter, and it went in the bin.  A Proof certificate is more valuable than a BUNC; especially when the coin is struck to near-proof quality anyway.

    If you like the subject and the strike, the future prospects of the coin might not be so important to you.
    But as for their future profit potential, it is fairly limited.  I can buy sterling silver proof coins are spot price without any issue.  It's always a difficult call on memorial coins: some hold their value quite well, but others really struggle.
    I would not buy these in the hope of making a profit, based on numismatic demand alone.

    Hmmm.  Proof finish, coupled with a proof certificate...
    I'd imagine NGC and PCGS will be slabbing as proof, as well.  I think this might augur quite well for resale values, if slabbed.
