  1. Not so sure, They aren't air tight and a lot of the older ones are badly toned. They don't tend to sell that well.
  2. Depends who was selling it. If I was buying privately, at that grade. £50 best
  3. I think that boat has sailed
  4. Interesting, thanks
  5. LOL wish I had need for such a beast, and a strongroom to put it in
  6. I was thinking more of these. They come with round or square holes, to fit various sizes, are slim and stackable and a couple will go into a safe quite nicely.
  7. Yes the advice is worth considering.
  8. No, I didn't think so. Spink is more price that coins dealers will sell at, so retail, really. So you'd expect this Chris Perkins guide to be accurate when selling on ebay then
  9. I've never sold at auction (other than ebay) but when I have looked up selling fees, they've varied quite a lot from reasonable to too high when you consider the 18 - 25% buyer's premium as well! Mus tbe a lucrative business
  10. There's one near me a week tomorrow.
  11. me? "I" or "It"?
  12. Spink?
  13. A bunch of Morgans, mainly AU and BU
  14. If it's who I think it is, it's Shaun.
  15. Judging by the obverse, which is very nice (depending on what those black marks are), maybe. The photo of the reverse makes it difficult to judge, but I would guess there is some wear, so no. Unless it's a Canadian mint mark of course
  16. Went to see Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman in Manchester this evening. A real treat for us old prog-rockers! Nice to see Jon back in full healthy voice again, still missing Chris Squire though
  17. Looks like my optimism was misplaced, again! People rarely fail to disappoint.
  18. not sure really, I need something with holes big enough, just. Metric or Imperial, it doesn't matter although I think most cases/trays on sale come in metric sizes.
  19. I'm thinking of getting shut of all my old silver, nothing really of any quality, and buying a couple of really high graded crowns or halfcrowns.
  20. "reloa", come on mr oldun, who's lost their grasp of the English Language today?
  21. A shrewd judge, but yes, I have tiger
  22. Thanks for that Roy. I take it you got your 2 year old grandchild to draw that?
  23. Not personally. They look really nice but I need something bigger at my age. I usually go for crowns and half crowns, sometimes florins.
