    If you let the insurers know what you have then it can be confiscated too. If you have paid your tax then you should not be taxed again on a collection or collectible but i for one do not trust the Treasury on this matter.

    As an additional thought, if 4 separate people each order a tube of Brits, do we get the 100 off price break?

    Which bullion dealer will get it in the neck next.
    Rules are rules and they are as follows,. The dealer must sell bullion. the member must demand the highest quality coin (this must be in the members mind near perfect even though the coin is over 100 years old) 
    The coin has to be worth at least 150% of its weight in gold though the member only wants to pay a premium of 5% -15% including postage. 
    The member refuses to pay specialist coin shop prices
     
    Right who do you think it will be??😁😁😁😁

    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.

    Can I ask if you are a collector and you knew you could get a coin that was in unc or near unc condition from France why you didn't get it from France? As you say you are a collector so price is not a the main consideration.
    It looks to me you are going around all the BULLION dealers just to criticize them.  You would be wise to use coin collector shops instead ESP for older coins.  There are now quite a few collectors on this forum which is ok - good , but they must understand BULLION dealers sell bullion coin dealers sell coins, if you want a European coin you may be better going to the said country.

    Pipers got a reaction from KDave in Silver to Gold ratio is around 78!!   
    No one  knows how much metal is in the ground they can only guess!  Silver costs 8usd to mine in a silver mine obviously next to nothing as a by product in copper or other mines.  Gold mining is different huge amounts of earth are moved for little gold and a lot of gold miners are in big debts still from the last expansion.  If you look back at charts 100-1 is not unheard of nor is 16-1 or 30-1 they are extremes.  If you want to play the ratio game use gold money or bullion vault etc.

    Pipers got a reaction from Photoplay in Fake 1887 £5 ?   
    Imo it's a fake,  did the auction house not state the weight of the coin before it was sold.  I have to say most auction houses over state the condition of coins eg ef when in fact the coin is 'effectively faulty'

    I have just had a very good buying experience from Chards, they were very helpful and pleasant.   The coins were out of stock, they kept me informed and sent the coins out as soon as the coins came in stock.  Well done Chards.

    I don't trust the Treasury, the Government or Banks either.
    The difference between having your stack split across multiple properties and locations (known only to you in terms of exactly where it is, but still insured) is enormous imvho.
    I can't imagine insurance companies sending out suits with metal detectors and spades if the SHTF, but leave it in a bank box and when the government shuts the bank it's definitely lost.
    I prefer to trust my garden.
