What a nuisance. It's going to have to go back though. No 'it's only bullion' BS here.

'I honestly don't know why I bother my arse with the RM',  me too but then I see these5784bccc8654c_2shieldsrev.thumb.JPG.7ad05c386a97b6b54e87fb074a303164.jpg

Different bunch entirely, but to be fair, in Vicky's day they didn't have to worry about QC and the odd bag mark etc.

Pay homage to William Wyon and Jean Baptiste Merlen.

Quite so.

I wonder though Steve (let's move this to Sovereign Talk by all means), the standard of proofs in that era?

We should but not sure there's much to discuss. There were a few but they are rare, I've never seen one. One thing - they weren't as shiny as the ones we have today. That's all I've got:P

Full 5 coin 2017 sovereign set to go with the 3 coin premium set I received the other week. I would post photos but I would have to get on a plane to do so. Technically, the set will arrive after the new year as i dont want it getting caught up in the uk post right now but it is confirmed :) so it counts :)

Griffin tiny mark on queen so ungradeable

Had two tubes turn up today and only looked at the top one currently but it was spotted... Any spotting on yours?

Now I remember why I've not bought any silver for essentially a year.
