    @ShaolinStacker Deal merged with deal thread.
    For people in the EU, silver imports from outside the EU attract VAT.  You probably all know but just in case

    Yes they do.  Not sure if the website will allow overseas ordering.  You may have to phone the order through.

    Panda, ASE, Libertad, Perth Mint semi numi all spot.  They are however far far less prone to it than say Royal Mint & Canadian Mint offerings and the Perth Mint cheapo bullion coins.  Somali Elephants spot quite a lot too.
    Stick to the first few and you should be mostly fine.  Rwanda and New Zealand Mint stuff are mostly fine as well.

    Not Lego investment talk. Just Lego.
    4 years ago I bought a partially completed project with the intention of having it completed by Xmas 2015.  With a young one and another on the way I never did start it.  The instructions for the project "Cavegod's UCS AT-AT" was only ever available as an LDD file so wasn't really user friendly.  Over the years, there have been some alterations to make the structure more stable as well as substituting some rare parts for more readily available ones.  The latest LDD instructions I had at the time are now out of date.  A couple of years ago someone actually put together a proper set of user friendly buildable instructions which I have now just purchased.
    My task now is to sort through the pieces to see what I have and what's missing.  432 different pieces totaling 6262 is the new official count but I believe the old owner left me with close to 7000 including duplicates.
    Cost me £650 + shipping back in the day and has been sat in the garage ever since.  I really do need to start work on it otherwise it would have been a complete waste of £.  I might even get the Kragle out to build a fully playable set for my lad.
    Someones time lapse of the build

    A brief respite from the 2017 Sovereign fun today: back to some plain new silver. 
    I know - for the purists a silver "round" is an unspeakable thing, but I absolutely love these 2015 Scottsdale 1 ounce rounds - with the date and the lion showing up when you tilt them. Sticking with Scottsdale - added another four of their 100g bars to the stack (I like the size and style of these).  Then another 1 ounce 2014 Mexican Libertad proof: always grab these from 2014 if I see them, as it's a rarer year, although the 1 ounce was most abundant at 4,700 mintage. 
    Then a couple of NGC boxes - need some nice MS70s to pop in them now.. 😉

    China 2017 - The 70th Anniversary of the Founding of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region 30g Coin.  Quite a bit more expensive than usual which I think is down to the mintage of 20k instead of the usual 50/60k.  Really want the 8g gold coin as well but it's a little too much.
    China 2017 - World Heritage - Temple & Cemetery of Confucius & The Kong Family Mansion in Qufu 30g coin.  Issue with a dot on the coin.  Looks like a impurity within the silver.  Contacted Chinese dealer to have it exchanged.  Let's see how they deal with it.

    An 1884-CC $20 Double Eagle; I think it's a good candidate for NCS conservation and will be sending it across to them for a 'touch-up', and subsequent grading from NGC.  The red spot at the top of the coin is either a very dark copper spot, or blood. 
    I'm not too sure on grade, but I think it might be able to achieve AU53-55.
    Picked up from HGM, after a post on the Gold Deals topic.
