    A few with NCS still

    My thoughts on grading on video...



  2. kimchi liked a post in a topic by KDave in Record Keeping - how do you keep track of your stack?   
    When using money from gold sales as part of the deposit to buy property I had to prove buying and selling the coins, I assume to prove I did not receive them as a gift, and also to meet money laundering requirements - not sure what recipes prove in that department though to be honest. Keep your invoices when purchasing and stick them in a safe deposit box with your metals like paul says. 
    There is another advantage if you stack only one or two types of coin. You can use invoices for the same type, say sovereigns, which will over the years have different values and this will allow you to play tax games - claim you are selling coins at a loss by using recent invoices if spot drops, or in the future if CGT free status is removed and you sell coins that were bought 10 years prior, use invoices from recent purchases. 'Mixed years' invoices are a good hedge against future tax changes.

    Hey everyone - I have just done a video about record keeping and was hoping we could start a thread discussion sharing ideas etc.

    Please share your thoughts on record keeping!

    Having spent the afternoon in London chatting to strangers in some of the poorer parts of London, of all ethnic backgrounds and religions, I can say that sentiment among most who I talked to about this is 100% that of the videos, and these were people not directly involved (although some knew people local to the event - I do too but he lives on one of the most expensive roads in Chelsea). If I had gone to meet my friends in the City, the tourist spots etc no doubt things would have been completely different, but on the street even around central London and on the Tube of all places I felt a unity and saw simple acts of kindness I've never seen before, or probably rather are so long ago now I don't remember when it felt like that.
    I think it makes a huge difference. I would say there would probably be riots, but the Muslims are too peaceful. They are planning marches, these would certainly be bigger. I think May would have to resign, and the country's leadership already hangs in the balance right now. She won't last that much longer, we all know that, but there will be a crisis if it happens now.
    Whatever you think of the BBC, they will follow the official sources on such a tragedy. The legislation is already in place to keep people who know strictly in line under National Security (if required). Even if the local community get a proper list together between themselves and its loads more people it won't be broadcast later on by the media, will it? What are they going to say, the chiefs of police, the fire service, the local council and even the government lied to us and used us to lie to you? I can't see it somehow myself!
    I hope the numbers are true, naturally, but it doesn't tally with the people known locally who lived there who haven't been seen since, and the families searching for loved ones who are getting no answers.

    Friends on the ground in London say people are having none of this 'fridge accident' nonsense. This is only second hand but the residents were apparently visited by the council and fire department last Saturday and told 'if there's a fire, stay in your flat'.
    I believe this a real, absolutely horrendous tragedy, and that it's not accidental (be it some nutter who was triggered by the warnings last weekend, or something else). Absolutely horrific stuff.
    Compare and contrast the total lack of Westminster and London Bridge independent mobile footage with so many people who saw and filmed this, compare the passionate and outraged witness accounts - this is a major crime on some level in my book that has cost lives in the most terrible way possible.
    Whoever is responsible in any way must be brought to justice.
    Shocking.

    Just for fun...
    Why not start a BYB/SF registry?
    At members' discretion, they can list their name against their bars' serial numbers.
    If members would like to purchase a specific number. they know who to contact.
    It works for the Mint! Thinking out loud

    Just to let everybody here know I have posted a new thread about the 100g bars, please go have a look!
    Secondly for 2018 mintages of the 1oz bars we will be giving existing serial number owners first refusal at their existing serial number. 
    I like @Roy 's idea of having a TSF Bar registry that you can then ask people for their numbers. It would of course have to be populated by silver forum members, but as you all have basically done this already by asking for specific numbers in this thread I don't see this as a problem for us to publish a full list of silver forum names. No personal names or details would be shared of course!

    I couldn't have put it better, I echo every sentiment! It's been a delight to receive my three yesterday and to open today (I had to dash across the country for a gig yesterday!).
    I would like to reserve no 123 again from the 2018 release please, as well as the same number from any other issues such as the proposed 10 Oz.
    Beautiful work BYB, you must be very proud of yourself
  10. kimchi liked a post in a topic by Agpanda in Today I bought.....   
    Today I bought a 1999 1oz Silverpanda NGC MS69 Serif 1
    That will make my collection complete when it arrives
    All coins will be up on www.agpanda.com as soon as possible
    I will have every version from 1989 to 2001 in MS69
    And 2002 to 2017 in MS70 except the 2004 and 2006, as they are only MS69 for now
    I will try to change every MS69 to MS70 later on, but that's really expensive

    No.171 checking in. 
    A superlative transaction. A great idea/product, honest marketing, attention to 'the little things', packaging, communication, participation, carmaraderie, enthusiasm....
    I'm gushing....well done Sir. Please buy Mrs. BYB a posh dinner 
    Can I reserve no. 172 from the next batch please?
    (see today I received for pics)

    Number 85 has arrived safely with me today. Very well packaged. The finer details from the tissue paper to hand signed letter ooze quality. This is my  first hand poured bar and first 1 oz bar also. Seemed to have got a good weight. 
    Thank you to Backyard and Chris for comming up this idea. I look forward to future releases

    The silver bullion bars are now in my hands, what a beautiful hand made bar. Many thanks BYB. Craftsmanship at it's finest. 😎

    Yours were posted by SD today so should be with you tomorrow. I delayed your postage by one day as it was next day and wanted to try and make sure people got them on the same day, like a proper release...however it seems that Royal Mail 2nd class signed for is the equivalent of next day delivery for some people! 
    It is all a scam I am sure!!!

    People should just buy for the enjoyment of having some physical wealth in their hand, if you're looking for quick returns you'll get burnt as the metals market as well as the stock exchange is run by the rich and powerful for the rich and powerful, we're just pawns in the game

    Why not tell everyone you are a SIlversmith/Jeweller from Vietnam and looking for business partners on the forum instead of punting quotes:?
    It's not a problem, I don't mind, but honesty is valued amongst members here.
    All the best

    I have left the English hot weather for this. 30degrees but not the sticky humid weather we are having. Soooooo tired as I was up this morning at 1:30am to fly. Loving the new roaming tariffs
