2017 Temple Pandas in Bi-Met and Brass.  There's a spec of something on the bi-met both on the medal and inside plastic pouch.  Might be some frosting issue on the brass.

Parcel was well overdue and seems to have been mis-sorted multiple times.  Dispatched from Shanghai for the UK on 28th May.  Arrived back in Shanghai on 1st June and dispatched to UK again.  Arrived back in Shanghai on the 4th June and dispatched to the UK again.  Finally arrived in the UK on 17th.

Nice pandas they look impressive. Is bi-metal a mix of silver and gold or something else? 

Brass one side and copper on the other.  2 metals stuck together with super glue

Ooh you're a braver soul than I! I best not dip my toe in those there waters for my own good methinks :P I think I'll stick with the recent key years and the 'simple' 1888 that's been passed down to me!

My PCGS grades have been done in record time and pretty pleased

IMG_4389.PNG

How long did it take?

They have had my coins since the 30/5 and am still stuck "In Process"

Sent mine to the PCGS USA due to the cheaper prices $32 vs 45 euro, in 5 days time will have been 2 months since I sent them; took 1 month just to get to PCGS.

Think in future ill just pay the Europe rate.

Phenomenal service, you must have a contact there:D

Or they must have a big box the coins go in. last in, first out!

I'm thinking it's the last in scenario, I've mostly waited 3 days for grades to come through, this was the quickest by far of any of my submissions

Very nice! I also got the group lot of tokens that I wanted at the DNW sale week.

Actually I only wanted one of them - a token issued by one of my ancestors in the early 1800's!
