    That site gave my anti-virus a bit of a scare, just be cautious with the link.

    Unloved.  Great coins with a low premium.

    Make sure to upload good quality picture evidence in the PayPal dispute.  If you want any help, feel free to send a PM - I've had a few PayPal disputes as both buyer and seller, and won every one thus far.
    You will need to say that the item was not as described - i.e. it arrived damaged.

    @BackyardBullion and @Roy it is what it is, surely?
    If you want to do a charitable drive then that's great, but it's a bit late now on this particular idea, no?
    I'm a full time carer for a disabled parent so I come here for something else, I save the taxpayers very many thousands in the care I provide my parent, because I am a caring person and I know no-one can look after him like I can. So it feels 'a bit' of a slap in the face (I know, not intended) to try to enjoy a bit of fun and some excitement that takes me away from that, and now I am told it must be charitable.
    If you feel so strongly about charity then I would both tell you that it starts at home (imvho) and also bring up the old phrase 'a dog is for life, not just for Christmas'.

    Clens92 got a reaction from metallica73 in UK 50% Junk Silver Liquidity / Snobbery   
    Definitely some silver snobbery in there.  Of all the silver that doesn't sell on here, .500 scrap coinage seems to have the hardest time shifting - it can sit for a day or so, even under spot price.
    Storage is clearly a consideration though.

    The silver version was only issued in Proof quality, IIRC.  Yours is definitely the cupro-nickel version.

    @oliversw5
    But if you make 10% margins and are earning £14,000 profit per year that means £140,000 turnover...well above the threshold for VAT. Even if gold is not VAT'able do you not need to register regardless...
    There are also a lot of rules about selling investment gold, I have been researching it quite a bit.

    Just curious as to the approach you are taking is all.

    Where are you based, @Pkleba55?  if you're in the UK, you will find a very active market here on this forum.  Of course, everybody knows where to buy cheap silver so the prices have to be competitive but if you price them right, they'll sell instantly.

    Whilst it isn't whiskey, the Maynars 40-Year Port is well worth a pick up if you're into port.  Great price from a known brand.

    Clens92 got a reaction from KDave in GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)   
    Yes, but they made their profit on those 7 Britannias. 
    Nobody looking to trade the intra-day Spot is buying physical gold and taking delivery of it. 
    Honestly, it doesn't matter if they stay in business or not.  There will always be another gold buyer.  Two months ago, I could get 98% of Spot for scrap and coins from them.  Now I can't get more than 96% (ish), so I'll sell elsewhere and they'll lose all my business in that regard.  Nothing big by any means - but if all the small gold buyers start doing it, it becomes a bigger issue as they won't be getting the stock to sell on.

    How bizarre - repaired?  Perhaps the little nick on the rim at about 10 o'clock on the Face side? 
    Regardless, I can imagine somebody took a very big hit when that came back as Ungradeable.  It's not worth anything close to £13k now.

    Clens92 got a reaction from Oldun in Price guides for graded RM coins   
    NGC have a World Coin Price Guide - maybe this would suffice?  They definitely offer values for Crowns, Sovereigns etc - I'm not sure if they've quite got to modern-day commeorative issues or not.
    In my eyes, CGS have completely undermined any claim to legitimacy in the numismatic arena after their sham-liquidation and rebirth about a year ago.  They are too closely tied to London Coin Auctions to be an independent arbiter of coin values.

    Clens92 got a reaction from Cointreau in Canadian Royal Mint (must read)   
    This has scam written all over it.
    Two possibilities:
    Someone within the RCM's postal team is switching fake bars for real bars.  Highly unlikely given the level of scanning and x-rays these employees pass through to get into work.  
    Second and most likely: the jeweller bough a fake bar.  He realised this, and so decided to log onto AliExpress and buy himself a cheeky fake and run to the papers in a bid to recoup his initial losses.  That's why the Mint have already declared the packaging to be fake as well.  
    The jeweller is trying to pull a fast one, and will probably go to prison for his stupidity.
