  1. Gold Half Sovereign

    Welcome to a heavily subscribed club I think they are uncommon (as opposed to rare). The definitive sovereign perhaps, a YH shield? I don't look for them anymore (always a bad move) but like it when they randomly come up for sale. I haven't had one from HGM for a loooong time.
  2. Gold Half Sovereign

    Every YH half I own was expensive. That's my experience, I don't know why. Jubilee and Veiled were reasonable, though a premium added. I think a lot of the YHs were melted and re-issued (it is documented) and therefore uncommon?
  3. Gold Half Sovereign

    Agreed on the grading. It's a lovely coin, coronation year, lots of history but they did make a lot of 'em! It will be fab in a George run, or a King's run, or a Portrait collection but slabbed I can't see the value. It is what it is I guess.
  4. Gold Half Sovereign

    It is fun, and quite easy (cash permitting) to put together a bullion portrait set. The Mint released their own collection but they are usually quite expensive. I seem to remember Atkinsons had one fairly priced. Now, leaving all the early (read: expensive) ones for the 'Steves' of this world to drool over () and starting with Victoria, 7 or 8 different portraits should create an interesting and historical collection. On a budget, I 'assembled' my own. Here's mine. I have the JC portrait too but there is not enough space.

    I enjoyed that. Thank you.

  8. @KDave, I'll be blunt. 10% is 10% just as 36 + 24 = 60. Simple maths, simple concepts. Just simple.
  9. Ok, fair enough. I prefer to listen to Steve Wright on Radio 2. Specifically on Friday, 'Serious Jockin'........no G!'
  10. For only selected people, and against the concrete 'rules' you set out on the group order? I'll say no more. Yeah I saw that, I thought it was a disclaimer for exceptional circumstances though - I never imagined it would be 'if you're in my gang I'll make an exception'. You either have basic 'rules' (your choice of word not mine) or you don't, which is it? lol
  11. Why do you care about the manipulators in the shadows who are destroying America? Why do you listen to Patrick Timpone's One Radio Network Live talk radio from the Texas Hill Country? Is this relevant to you?
  12. Why were you influenced by him?
  13. There are staff there, just that they are all STACKING SHELVES in trading hours, getting in my way and hindering my bargain hunting and sell by date searches, instead of SERVING THE CUSTOMER and packing my bags. There is no customer service in the UK just rules and restrictions. In Poland, it's quite acceptable to pick up a can of coke, for example, drink it while you shop and leave the empty in your basket to swipe at checkout.
