    Ugh!
    I thoroughly agree, it reeks of a cheap cash in, no imagination or creativity (identical branding to every other bit of GoT merchandise) and timed to come in the build-up to the last season.

    The older you get you realise that the more the world changes the more it stays the same. 
    Yesterday it was dotcom Today it's cryptos. Tomorrow it will be biotech or some other exciting venture. Plastics, commodities, tulips bulbs, precious metals... have all gone to the moon and then crashed as people realise that yes, there is something new here, but the world will continue turning and life will go on with our without, and it is very much a layer on top of what is already in place, never a complete replacement for it.

    I agree nothing new, but, as the world moves forward and we become better informed the complexity of the exciting ventures has to grow at a far faster rate.
    Tulips, you need to know about water and plant food, now you need to know about Address, Bit, Bitcoin, Block, Block Chain, BTC, Confirmation, Cryptography, Double Spend, Hash Rate, Mining, P2P, Private Key, Signature and Wallets, I've also head about Forks, Ledgers, Cold Storage and Proof of Work.  And this is such a good thing because it means that you can deal with people you don't trust............ really?

    Buying and selling among forum members is a good thing and there is or can be a bond of trust. My point is that generally sellers that charge eBay prices and ask FF are generally not making sales.

    Yes, but then when forum members build up trust and trade between each other, i'd rather do that.

    The trouble is that each stage of production requires manual real world certification.  All the blockchain can do is record what was input, if you dont trust the input, then nothing can change;  if you trust the input the blockchain isn't necessary and you can use existing simpler database systems.  There is a requirement for pharmaceuticals to implement this in the EU.

    Yes, thanks for that link, interesting read. As usually happens to me like when on youtube, it then took me down the rabbit hole of links to other articles. One-sided it was, yes. But on reflection - i have to think the sane side.

    And, oh dear. I've learned a little more about the absurdity of it all. Companies now have only to announce the most tenuous of steps into crypto to see shares surge. In many cases just a change of company name to hint at involvement, with no actual plan or intent, was enough for shares to rocket. Seriously, is the world losing its frigging mind?
    It's all going to end very... very.... badly

    More than I should  it's probably worth little more than bullion, but I paid £16 + p&p. I actually have a nicer one for a lower price in the post... Swings and roundabouts

    one of the most ingenious ways of hiding gold I heard was from during WWII
    As the Nazi's plundered their way across Europe, one chap who feared for his family safety, had his gold holdings & coins smelted down and re-cast into massive door hinges
    He mounted them to various doors in his house and painted them black so they matched
    After capture, house looting and time in camp, after the war he returned home safely and found all his gold still in tact all the while whilst hidden in plain site

    PansPurse reacted to BackyardBullion in **January 2018** Group order from European Mint!   
    OK - order closed for tonight. We are up to 3200 EURO at the moment and that give us a package weight of about 5kg.
    So we are going to be in the 5 - 10kg group which means 86 EURO is the split.
    So if you order 50 EURO worth of coins right now your share of international shipping is 1.34 EURO.
    Deadline for orders is Sunday next week - so make sure to send me your shopping lists before then!

    I am fully wrong -- this is why you should wait until after your morning coffee to respond to anything.
    I got the time period right, 1400s, but they are definitely English coins. While bearing an extremely similar look to German States coins at the time, Long Cross design on the reverse of the coin is definitely of English descent. The size and weight will tell you if they are pennies or half pennies (0.6g/15mm or 0.3g/12mm)  but being hammered and worn means the size and weight fluctuates significantly.
    I have never read up so much on English coins from this era. Thank you @barney for the correction and thank you @Ojay45 for giving me something to do an a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
  24. Thanks

    There English, all silver penny's two at the front left are both Edward III i think   Long cross one is Canterbury  and York Mint ,  the two  cut half's are Henry III long cross and the last  is too clipped and worn
