    Numistacker got a reaction from Mariner1961 in NGC Grading Submissions Open   
    I have now started a spreadsheet to properly track the coins that people sent me for grading...
    Meanwhile - what I would like to know is what kind person sent me a present this morning of
    1 x 2006 1oz gold panda
    1 x 2008 1oz gold panda
    1 x 2003 1/4oz gold panda
    Was this to send for grading - or maybe just a present for services to the silver forum (pretty please).

    Here is how it works guys….

    APMEX uses a lot of search engine optimization techniques. If you search for the 1/10 gold BU Libertad on Google+ the APMEX out of stock record will come up. Many searchers will visit the site and buy something that Apmex does have in stock.

    They may have done this on purpose. They may have tried to place an order like many other dealers but the Mexican mint did not fulfill the order. Who knows the exact reason?

    Right,  I've decided to get a 1/20th 2017 Libertad  or one of @StackerMike graded pandas ( if hes still got them for sale ) with my spare £100, not sure which one, might toss a coin to decide LOL
    Will still be buying a sovereign and silver every other month to build a stack.
    Thanks for all your input its appreciated.

    Some wise words from shortstack68 (hate to admit that) but he is right. Better to drip feed into a stack and consider it a 5-15 year investment Even then fashion is a bitch and todays cool items are yesterdays has beens.  Dont be suckered into buying hot items too late at the highest price, buy items at auction or from other members here at low prices. Buy in tranches of £200-£500 a time every few months and in a few years you will have a massive useful store of wealth that gives you life options.
    By the time a coin is in the news its too late - its like shares - you need to be the first buyer not the last buyer and with £100 its almost inevitable you will lose and pick badly at the beginning. It might be better advice to buy old USA or UK gold thats over 100 years old at ebay or other auction and just pay more than someone else. When you come to sell that coin will be in demand and desirable unless you buy something very common. Think about buying pre-33 from a dealer in Germany or old gold like a half or full guinea.
    If you are wedded to silver buy low mintage silver from a good mint the moment it comes out african series are popular. Think about saving postage by using @BackyardBullion group buy and get coins at the lowest issue price and wait patiently.

    What to do with £100?
    Best option is to save more and start with £250 and buy a sovereign. If you get bored with it you can sell it easily and you may make £10 or lose £10 depending on how the wind blows.
    If you only had £100 and you were going to add to the stack each month then 2oz Beast bullion coins or lower mintage silver bullion kooks or special britannias but consider it as savings not a double your money opportunity. 
    You could do something like 2.5g Pamp gold bars. You could also consider a 2017 1/20th Libertad gold BU
    @stackermike is selling some beautiful graded pandas and at the prices being asked they are a great buy for a longer term investment and might even give a profit on a quick resale.

    Buying to flip............Not a great idea and especially not with just £100, at this level you'll be looking at silver only and mass produced silver at that. Most of us know where to locate the cheapest silver, even selling it online through eBay would maybe reap a whole 20p reward, is it really worth the hassle?
    Selling your silver on the forum and people will expect to buy at the same level as the cheapest they could find online, i'd be rethinking your flipping plan seriously, it would be better to buy for yourself and holding onto it for at least 12 months. Personally i find that there's a lot of greed in precious metals, so many people try and do the same thing that i just tend to look the other way.........
    Privy pimping is another area that i'd leave alone, numistacker recently sold a couple of pimped NGC graded 2015 Britannias and lost maybe $50 a coin as he thought they were the IN coin of the year but they obviously weren't, these types of coins are just another way for mints to try and make even more money from buyers, so you'd best leave these alone or you could find yourself in a hole before you start.........
    Collect for yourself in the immediate term and just hold for a little while and forget about quick turnarounds unless you're going to invest thousands and try and flip a greater amount.

    First releases - now there's something to debate!
    I see many list "First Strike" or whatever and charge a big premium for it.
    In my view, just because you submit a coin in the first 30 days after minting it doesn't warrant this premium.
    A PF UC 70 is just that - about as perfect as you can get.
    So you buy a 20 year old Proof and send it off to NGC or PCGS and it comes back PF (PR) Ultra Cameo 70. So why should a coin submitted in the first 30 days command a Premium?
    In my view - it shouldn't! If you've kept your beloved coin, safe, secure and untouched for 50 years then decide to have it Slabbed - the number is the number - period!
    Well that's my opinion.
    What's yours?

    @SilverTanner I guess that £130 gamble on the 1807-A 1/4 Franc with the "Adjustment Mark" as DNW put it paid off!  I'm glad NGC only saw it as a lower grade and not a Details grade.  Great result on yours as well!  NGC shows only 5 in AU58 and only 3 examples in higher grade (and our two coins make up just under half of the AU58 population)  
    Not too shabby on my Godless Florin either although that photo doesn't do the coin justice.  Here's the pic from the DNW auction...

    Thanks for the updates @Numistacker!  Great way to start the weekend.

    Just did a quick research on the population of the Piedfort Sovereign, out of the 431 sent for grading so far 251 got PF70 and 18 got PF69 from NGC while all 5 submitted to PCGS got PR70DCAM which indicates that those coins that RM got it right (ie. without scuff marks or dreaded Piedfort Tail problem) seems to grade pretty well generally.
