Hello @BackyardBullion  you put me down for #67 on page 7 but seem to have given it away. Not once, but twice?!

And is it right you haven't received any payment for these yet??

I have PM'ed you about this.

Just for some transparency for the thread...

I made a mistake here, not trying to hide that fact by PM'ing @evende :-)

We are all human...

Thanks for the PM @BackyardBullion .

I'm only pulling your leg. The number doesn't bother me and I'm happy to have any other number that's going. Please PM me the payment details and I'll get cracking. 

Cheers!

@BackyardBullion it looks like absolutely tremendous work mate (and a massive amount of effort, to say the very least!), can't wait to receive the beautiful hallmarked forum bars as and when they come out!

:)

Out of interest, how do you polish them, and how have some been sent back as 'mint errors' - any idea on the latter?

I use a silver polish foam and yellow dusters, little polish foam and rub rub rub!

I haven't sent any back...I just miss stamped them when putting the serial numbers on them is all! So I cannot sell them for obvious reasons!

How do you mean mis-stamped? The wrong numbers or just a bit out of line?

Sorry, I'm maybe being too nosey (I'm just a beginner to hallmarked hand poured bars, for now ;) and so please do feel free to tell me to either push off or just ignore my questions!), but all aspects of this wonderful craft absolutely intrigue me since I joined this fine place.

That aside, I think it's amazing you now have your own recognised Mint! :D

I either used the wrong number, or on one bar I had the number horizontal. When you do 1080 stamps in 4 hours you are bound to make a few mistakes!

I'm not sure what you mean about a "recognised mint" The hallmark just means that it has been tested by the Edinburgh Assay Office and they can verify that it is 999 pure silver like I say it is. There are a lot of people who will use a lesser purity than stated so that they can make a little extra, selling 900 silver as 925 etc.

The hallmark adds a great layer of security and authenticity about me as a creator and craftsman.

Don't worry about questions, I like to answer them!

Blimey, well of course you're going to make mistakes, that must be absolutely back breaking work! I trust in this forum and I trust in you (as well as your Youtube vids, the way you've gone about this, I think it's been fantastic.

The hallmark is really the absolute icing on the cake for me :D

Ah I see, thanks. You posted earlier that some had been rejected as a 'Mint error' so I thought you now were regarded as such...still, only a matter of time perhaps!

Can't wait to see the bars whenever they arrive (no rush here!).
