  2. Multitude of Fakes! Beware this Ebay seller!

  3. Today I bought.....

    I would as it's his choice to accept PayPal or not from the start.
  4. Large slabs

    Does anyone know the dimensions of the larger NGC and PCGS slabs? Do they have only two sizes (large and normal) or there is an intermediate one?

  6. Collecting a series or not?

  12. Today I bought.....

    Beautiful coin and certainly in my wish list. I am not sure if you mean the boxed version but in general prices for the raw coin are around 200€, so 150€ still seems a good price.
