  5. 1857 Shield back Sovereign

    Hi everyone I've just recently purchased this and am really over the moon. I was just wondering what you experts out there think and whether it is worth spending the extra to get it graded. I would really appreciate any information. It's amazing how many different types and variations there are, I'm starting to see why these are so collectible. Many thanks

    Thanks for all the pointers. Some really useful advice and it's great to know that you can get instant knowlegeable help when you need it. That's what's so great about this forum.

    I think the lighness in colour might be somewhat down to my dodgy photography. If you look at the black background the obverse side ìs definitely a few shades lighter then the reverse. To the naked eye there seems very little difference in colour tone.

  11. Biggest disappointment on buying

    As a newbie some 9 months ago I decided to jump in to pm' s and buy my first coin. It was a 2017 silver britannia it lòks a beauty from the Photo's. What a disappointment... nothing about it stood out and as for the pebble dash finish well enough said.....im sure there are lots of coins that have had a similar response. In my case it wasn't a big outlay. BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER Saying that have fallen for the proof versions as a new collection. Any other love/hate relationships???
