  1. It's actually new to me they offer insured shipping for metals these days. Been a while since I last posted outside Finland and then it was mentioned in their terms, if I remember correctly, that sending metals is not allowed. I just sent registered mail knowing I will take a beating if something goes wrong. Can imagine the 'new' insured service being expensive since these guys take something like 20-25€ for insured delivery within Finland, so perhaps 2-3 times that. I think DHL did not insure metals last time I checked. I will also be interested to hear what the Posti guys say and what the price is so please keep us updated.
  2. 1959 You can say a lot about mexicans but they sure know how to make awesome coins ?
  3. Various pickups have been popping up lately. Really like the britannia set. That cal fractional is tiniest thing I´ve ever seen. Pretty cool but probably not for me so might pass that on. 1887 half sov Russian st george 1oz silver
  4. Good Day. thanks @Numistacker + an auction pickup 1987 1/10 Oz
  5. Bought this set to grade the panda and sell the rest but it would be actually quite nice to leave it like it is. Nice display
  6. Absolutely, gold is better in many ways imo. But why you rarely see spotting on Perth Mint coins? Something in their process obviously that produces better quality.
  7. ok, interesting. Would asetone dissolve the silver chloride?
  8. I saw few particles with Fe, Cr, Ni and Cu ( so stainless steel from the press) but didn´t record the assays and don´t remember if they had any Cd. I think Cd was present in small amounts only in one assay. It seems to give false peaks close to silver peaks so an artifact in those EDS images? If the white hazing is just oxidized Ag then how would you be able to "deoxidize" it?
