    I can only state that in 15 years of using eBay I've never lost money under these circumstances - I guess I'm just more comfortable with eBay and the supposed 'risk' than others.
    Each to their own, I just wasn't expecting to be judged quite so harshly in what was meant to be a 'fun' thread.

    Bought this box hoping I could squeeze H capsules in there.  I can't.  Perfect for T capsules though.  Came with 25, 27 and 30mm capsules which I'll probably ditch.  Took 6 weeks from China.  3 weeks to get here and then another 3 weeks in the UK through some super slow logistics company.  For £10.50 can't complain.

    I have been watching this thread closely as I really value the opinions of this great community and it helps me (I think!) make a more informed decision on all of my investments and purchases. 
    I have decided to pull the trigger and get one of these bad boys. 
    My reasoning for both getting and not getting have been discussed here already but basically it comes down to a gamble - and to be honest life is a gamble! My thoughts are that it is a popular series, this design is awesome and it is low (although not extremely) low mintage. 
    I also figure, worst case scenario I have a lovely coin to enjoy, and all I would have to do is wait for gold to be at £1,800 per oz to get my money back on the value of the gold only, nevermind the numismatic and proof value bonuses. £1,800 per oz might seem like a pipe dream, but in 20 years time it will be that with inflation alone. Yes I am aware real money terms I lose out but I am a numbers man and as long as I enjoy the ride and am not losing everything then it is all good!
    Same goes for the 1 oz silver proof too, picked on up as well! 
    If you are going to get one use topcashback for 2.1 % on gold (£9.55 off!) and if you use the code  BND103  you will get a free £20 coin (1/2 oz free 999 silver!) I also used my dad as a friend refferal on topcashback to get £15 referral so all in all I (my family) get nearly £45 off.
    So a 1/4 Proof QB can actually be worth it at £410!?

    Bit of Spring cleaning and "upgrading" of my silver Morgan Dollars; the poorest of my set was a 1901 O, so I have traded up to a nicer exemplar, same O Mint.  The poorer quality one will find a new home, but not mine! I guess it's probably worth systematically upgrading the quality when better coins appear on the market for a reasonable price (£40 in this case).

    @shortstack68 beautiful set. dust is okay, milk spots go away. 
    Here my pic version of the Kookaburra set. At Perth Mint long sold out. Apmex will sell for nearly double issue price for the raw set.
