Received the last bit of items while I was away...gold!
From auction I won a 1869 Young Victoria Shield Sovereign, Die 33 (AU58) courtesy@BackyardBullion (I am beginning to think that he has all of my earnings from the overseas trip)...
Also received a 1987 1/4 oz gold Britannia proof. Regrettably no COA and box, but pristine condition before I put it in a proper capsule.
Well, it's definitely a slippery slope this.... Noticed HGM had 2010, 2011 and 2013 full sovereigns listed and as they were gap fillers......
The strike on the 2011 is quite a way off centre - is this normal?
Scrooge is my hero.
Responsible single guy, follows his own path, rags to riches, makes his own way in the world on his own terms. Employer, invests in sensible business ventures, cornerstone of the business community, teamed up with his like minded business partner, a real entrepreneurial success story.
Then, of course, where ever a man is successful, it attracts leftists. Employee who can't rub two dimes together, married too early, had too many kids he couldn't support, including a cripple, now suddenly it's Scrooge's responsible to take care of him and all his spawn.
Non-profit approaches him on the streets wanting him to donate money for Christmas to get people out of the work houses, cheeky beggers don't just have to temerity to beg for money but to act like they are the morally just heroes for doing the begging.
Ungrateful nephew talking &^%$ about his own blood just because his uncle doesn't wear his heart on his sleeve and engage in shallow virtue signaling to everybody around him just to attract friends and influence people and be the life of the party.
Scrooge is an unrepentant bachelor, he doesn't give in to the wiles of the tart who tries to sucker him into marriage in his youth, no doubt with intentions of fleecing him once the inevitable kids come along - 75% of divorces are initiated by women, and Scrooge was smart to ignore Ms. Belle's indignation when she attempted to manipulate him by claiming he was too greedy, because what woman doesn't claim a man is too greedy when she's trying to gain access to the fruits of his hard work ?
Scrooge was the man, at least up until 3 leftist ghosts tormented him into giving his &^%$ away to the undeserving.
Scrooge, a capitalist hero, a man who did what had to be done to dig himself out of obscurity and misery and put food on the table for himself, his business partner, and his employee, all while providing a valuable service to the local business community.

Hello, sovereign day today. Picked up the 1985 proof sovereign and the three coin 1983 set with the 1/2 sovereign, sovereign and £2 coins. So have filled in a few gaps in my QE II sovereign date series.
