    This is horrible. I'm cold and wet but my discomfort ends in the morning. Unlike those who we are raising funds for, we have a nice warm beds to go back to in the morning. The rain has been a steady heavy drizzle and the party atmosphere has faded as people try to get some sleep. I thought my thick coat and tarpaulin would shelter me from the rain but my shoulders are wet and it is hard to get warm. Sitting here yawning and shivering - but it's for one night only. God help those who have to face this night after night. Thank you for your support x

    Yes, I have my cardboard and bin bags - not going to be my glamorous look and it looks like we're in for a cold, damp night. Thank you to everyone for your support, it has been fantastic.

    Ansel reacted to erd in 2017 Sovererign - My first   
    My first Sovereign arrives tomorrow, I decided to choose the 2017 as the first one; but oh so many more I want/need! Part of what convinced me to pull the trigger was Numistacker's videos on all the various Sovereigns.

    But a question, keep it raw or slab it?

    Ansel reacted to mr-dead in Royal Mail Signed For - warning!!!!   
    Recorded delivery items are treated no different to regular mail.  It's not segregated and is sorted and processed with all other items with just a signature on delivery.
    Special delivery items are segregated and processed in a secure locker with restricted access.  Every step of the journey is scanned and tracked with a signature on delivery.  You can also claim the postage back if it is delivered later than the 9:00 / 13:00 delivery deadline.
    If it's valuable use special delivery!
    Sorry for your loss numistacker, I've posted a few times here that recorded delivery does not cover previous metals.

    THIS is why I go down the group order route, AND to support @BackyardBullion. My order wouldnt save much in delivery costs through the group order, but still worth it.

    Well - for smaller orders and when people are happy not paying for special delivery then you can save £10 or more.
    For those people not wanting to risk anything other than special delivery it is a saving of about £2 - £3 so not that much.
    But, where I think that a lot of people see value in this order is that you don't have to set up an account with GS.be, you don't have to set up an account with transferwise, you don't have all the stress of doing the IBAN transfer (which I have heard people say they have gotten stung on before!).
    Also, it is a good way to support my YouTube channel. These unboxing videos will get a few thousand views each and that brings new potential customers to my business as well. So by joining the order you are not only saving a few quid, you support me too.
    Oh, and Mrs BYB and I get a big ass curry for our efforts too!

    I think part of the issue is that these orders are so different and complex. Lots of individual and different coins to put into a box.
    If you just have a monster box, this is easy. Wrap it and post it and you are done. 
    1000 oz spread over 40+ individual orders and consisting of lots of individual single coins as well.
    Speaking from experience of putting these orders together and organising them from my end it will be a long old job for them.
    I would rather them care a bit more about it and make sure they get it right than not.

    Ansel reacted to HeavyT in Coin dealers that offer a fair price?   
    Thanks, everyone. Few people have suggsted that I try listing them here on the For Sale Forum, I'll do that at some point and see what happens.
    By the way, I'm an established seller on eBay and have sold lots of items in the past but I tend to only do Buy It Now rather auctions listings as I've lost money before. Things have become slow so I'd been thinking that maybe selling direct to a dealer who pays fair might be an option. I've found some buyers on eBay are worse than dealers, I once had someone offer me £25 for MS66 Sov, bloody cheek!

    Ansel reacted to BackyardBullion in **February/March 2018** Group order from GoldSilver.be   
    I have been informed that the orders will be shipped into 4 separate parcels as the order is just so huge. Hopefully they will be with us soon - my best estimate for everyone is that your silver will be in the post to you early to the middle of next week. 
    I am now sending out onwards postage invoices to everybody involved. Some of you might not get one today as I am waiting to confirm with @augur who ordered what with is mini group order. The delay is so that I can correctly calculate how much postage will be based on the weight of your parcel. 
    We have paid a total of 36 EURO's for shipping. Due to the size of the order this won't impact people greatly. It is what it is and I am going to do my best to convince GS.be to give us free shipping in the future. But, they are doing a great job when you think they are boxing up 1000 oz of silver and there are a lot of different items in there!
    Not sure that the unboxing videos will be out this weekend - If I get any deliveries before the weekend then maybe. Otherwise next week is going to be a big week of silvery goodness!

    20 French Francs Mintages 1871-1898 Angels- Missing Years!
    Having  checked various websites (coindatabase/reocites/Chards) it seems that the 20 Francs Angel coin was not made for several years.
    Can anyone confirm (before I start looking for them) that there were no Angels minted in the following years:- 1872,1873 and 1880 to 1885 inclusive..Many thanks.
    Picked up a few more different years this week, maybe in better condition than the first batch.
