  1. I would imagine it takes weeks to produce the dies initially but only a day or two to modify them for bullion production, so more cost effective ...... I think we'll need a double decker at least.... Don't mention tsf we'd never get over the threshold just tell them were a group of twitchers or something.
  2. Would it not be a matter of simply polishing eigther physically or chemically to remove the frosting from the dies to leave a bullion finish .i need a visit to Wales too steve ...
  3. This is one of the reasons I sent my piedfort back..it looked like the staff had a kick about at break time and couldn't find a ball so used my box instead..surely getting the packing right is the easy bit..I feel your frustration
  4. I always thought that they produced the proofs first followed by the Bu and then the bullion with one set of dies would be interesting to know.
  5. From the time the gold is dug out of the earth to being stamped coins have gone through several processes including pouring to thickness rolling this causes stresses/tensions/hardening to developing in the planchet ,annealing " relaxes" these stresses to make it more maleable or softer .stamping causes the gold to re harden which could cause cracking ,so that's why I guessed there might have been a problem at the annealing stage again it's just a guess and no I don't think they "keep bending the gold"(sovereign steve). 😀 This was just an example of work hardening
  6. Hi Verne it might be a work hardening crack ie..when you bend a piece of metal in the same place several times it will crack and eventually break if so this would suggest a problem at the annealing stage of production, but I would expect this to be a whole batch not just one... Just clutching at straws.

  8. All sold out now wish I hadn't suggested this company to westmistrel as I think I was the first to mention them on the forum although I did warn that I'd never bought from them myself
  9. Proof Finnish plus hand signed coa well chuffed
