  1. Thanks

    The goods must match the description though, otherwise you are correct.
    I think the listing for the rooster is incredibly but probably unintentionally misleading. It clearly states Finish = Uncirculated even though that's not really a proper description as has been noted
    Chards then say


    and then this


    Which if you are selling something as UNC is clearly nonsense.
    Hope Chards take the criticism on the chin and make their listing a little bit clearer.

    I am 6ft4" and 130kg so no small man syndrome here. I do however like Atkinsons and Chard and assume they will give me a huge discount on my next order for sticking up for them .
    Pack mentality? - I think its worse than that. There is clearly some sort of gang culture on this forum. Me and the Sovereign crew are currently at war with the Privvy Possee who in turn are against the Moon Panda Massive. Very nasty.

    I think dealers have to be open to criticism when they get it wrong though. And plenty of forummers will pile in and defend the dealer if they are legit.
    It does seem like the OP is going around all the bullion dealers searching for a miracle deal though.

    It's quite clearly not Uncirculated, and the explanation of "we use a different meaning of Uncirculated" is hogwash, frankly.  There are scatches and dings consistent with circulation.
    Uncirculated is a grade - it's the equivalent of Mint State, or AUNC / BUNC.
    Take the refund and buy from France.

    @ChardLizzie in fairness to the OP if a coin states UNC (Uncirculated) then that's what i'd be looking for as a coin collector, collectors do go by grade, but you have stated the "finish" is UNC which i don't really get either, UNC would be a grade of a coin and not the type of finish, for example, a Matt coin would be the finish and not the grade, Matt proof isn't a grade either, just the type of strike, a Matt proof with a UNC grade is what collectors would be looking at
    So in essence, where it states "finish UNC" on your website looks a little misleading for a coin collector but not a bullion buyer, maybe just stating it's bullion would just be easier

    I think if someone is buying bulk Kooks & Lunars and paying the premium to get them, they'll know full well not to go to a walk-in store and try to sell them tbh.
    Just because one place deems those coins simply 'bullion' doesn't mean they are as there are plenty of options to get a premium elsewhere. And if you have that many lunars, you'll be selling them off to an online dealer for sure.

    I don't normally buy off eBay due to the amount of fakes,  but this guy looks genuine, he has sold quite a few sovereigns before with good feedback and has quite a few for sale. The Coin looks good, anyone else disagree?

    metallica73 reacted to Scuzzle in Brexit opinions?? Will you ever be allowed to leave?   
    There were many reasons that led me to vote for Brexit,  the question of sovereignty and decision making by people I can at least vote out if they get it wrong rather than unelected beurocrats I can't, the contributions where we pay them and they give us back part of it and tell us how to spend it.  The continual expansion of the EU was another concern, just how many piss poor countries does it intend to include, at the time there was talk of Turkey joining (the failed US coup put paid to that at least and now they have completely swung East instead), Asia MInor and Africa is not where I want the EU to head.  Also not once has a receiver country ever progressed to becoming a contributor country, if the EU was indeed as good as it is continually being made out to be surely at least one country could have managed it by now.  
    It was not until years later that we become aware that we made the smart move, looking back not signing up to the Euro turned out to be the smart move, not signing up to Shenghen turned out to be the smart move and it's the same with leaving the EU, there will be short term pain but in years to come it's going to turn out to be the smart move.
