    Will you be naming and shaming the seller if you don't agree with their grading of the coin, given that you've stipulated that it mustn't be slabbed?
    After all, we all know that MS designations by American companies on British sovereigns can vary quite substantially, and occasionally with little apparent reason.

    Serious question. Are you confident about your ability to grade these coins using a few photos? What happens if they are not to your liking when you receive the coin?

    Shields!
    Not sure what is going on with the lighting (phone camera pic) but none of them are black like the edges ones look 😂
    Yet to sort through but they are all very nice, a few cleaned but that's it. 35 more to come tomorrow!

    silverin reacted to mr-dead in Some depressing thoughts about pensions   
    I received my personal pension illustration yesterday from my company showing how the proposed changes are about to personally affect me.
    Approx 30% less than the original scheme.
    I have another 25 years to go so no doubt that figure will be eroded further over time.
    My stack is plan B pension top up fund.

    sorry, no.
    the 59 tends to have quite a broad lower edge to the headband. In certain light on certain photos, it can look as though it's two lines but if you look closely, you can see they are the two edges of a raised part. This aspect does tend to vary quite a lot in YH sovs.
    trust me, I've looked extremely closely at loads of 59's

    A bit of gold porn, the bars are starting to arrive (from Canada).
    Due to shipping insurance limits they ship each bar individually and 2 packages at a time.
    I have another 2 bars due for delivery tomorrow then another 4 bars to come soon.
    Would be cool if I end up with 9 different mints
    Also got a peli case so when all the bars arrive I can pop out the foam squares to fit the bars correctly.
