    ChrisSIlver reacted to HighlandTiger in Sovereign Scales   
    Well according to the experts there are around 450 different scales to collect. They differ in base, poise, beam and platter shapes. They have different crowns and maker marks. Most don't have maker names on them, and can only be identified by the type of crown on the poise. There have been several guys researching these scales for years and there are scales that even they have failed to identify a maker for them at the moment.
    There are some scales that are known just from one example, (a scale with Bartlett stamped on it), all the way to scales with Harrison stamped on them which are known to be over a thousand scales.
     
    I've collected about 40 scales so far costing about £1.5k, so over the next decade I hope to get to around 300 different ones. The last 150 will be hard to find as many are only known from single examples.

    @blindguy would you like me to remove your number above from your posts? Members could still PM you to get your number, but may be best not to have it publicly available? Just thinking of your security and privacy.

    ChrisSIlver got a reaction from AndrewSL76 in Viewing trade topics by latest   
    New trade topics are sometimes lost from the first page very quickly as the default forum view sorts topics by recent activity.

    You can change the sort of how topics are sorted temporally by clicking on the right  'sort by' drop down on any forum. See screenshot below.

    If you sort the trade topics by the start date, then you will see the latest topics at the top. (note this is temporary, if you were to go to another forum page and back again you would notice that it then sorted the topics by the default ' recently updated'



    EDIT: I am also working on a page to view the latest trade listings, you can find it under the Buy & Sell navigation menu at the topic, and then clicking on 'Latest Listings' you can also see it here: https://thesilverforum.com/latest-listings/

    ChrisSIlver got a reaction from magpie79 in is this not the ultimate addition to any sovereign collectors collection??   
    The equivalent of apple pay in its time, a great looking wallet for your sovereigns. 

    Nowadays would be great for those SHTF scenarios where everyone is buying toilet paper for their bunkers using sovereigns as currency.

    I think there was something similar posted on the forum a whole ago, I can't remember exactly but it may have been a single holder version. Thanks for posting.

    ChrisSIlver reacted to Murph in Russian silver hallmark identification   
    The 84 is what Russia used as a purity scale.  84 zolotnik is .875 silver, 88 is .9166.  This is calculated from 96 being pure so 84/96 = 0.875.
    If it didn't have the Russian town mark and assayer's initials you could suspect it is plated.

    Yes I noticed this also, it’s kind of annoying  on the web app. However it’s a security feature.

    I had already done both..........but that was before a post written in May was brought up and commented on. But as i said to Chris, I will refrain from commenting on any Buckingham collection threads, unless my name is mentioned, then out of courtesy to that person I will reply. As I have done here.  .
