  1. Don't own it yet I've got a few on approval just trying to figure out an offer, the prices for these are all over the place.
  2. What about my coin? I'm comparing and though mine is a slightly cleaned it seems nice, just trying to gauge prices for George IV as I only have a few.
  3. Just looking for opinions on grade for this coin, and wondering why this coin at Heritage is graded MS62 with that large scratch across the obverse? https://coins.ha.com/itm/great-britain/world-coins/great-britain-george-iv-gold-sovereign-1825-ms62-ngc-/a/3073-31189.s?ic4=GalleryView-ShortDescription-071515 Apologies for silver tone to the coin, just got a new camera body and have not played with it yet, AWB seems to be too "auto"
  4. Full Sovereign Shieldback – Dated 1871 - Sydney Mint (x5) £285.00 plus postage https://thegoldsovereign.com/store/product/full-sovereign-shieldback-dated-1871-sydney-mint/ I have 5 of these available note: all coins are sold as bullion as it's far easier that claiming grades etc. I can offer 3% discount for bank transfer, and combined postage on multiple coins
  5. Full Sovereign Shieldback – Dated 1861 £285.00 plus postage https://thegoldsovereign.com/store/product/full-sovereign-shieldback-dated-1861/ note: all coins are sold as bullion as it's far easier that claiming grades etc. I can offer 3% discount for bank transfer, and combined postage on multiple coins
  6. 1843/8 - Extremely rare, probably the rarest overdate in the shield sovereign series. In superb MS63 condition, an ex-Bentley coin so had to pick it up.
  7. O, hopefully not! 😲
  8. Just playing devils advocate, great until somebody has a reason to seize it , or don't have a reason to seize it but they do anyway, or the company goes bust and they liquidate your box! I think the best advice would always be to spread your risk.
  9. Your bump of this thread made me read it again and spotted my pictures on page 1, that looks like a nicer coin that I've recorded it as, and I have a 3:80 ratio on this coin so it's definitely rarer!
  10. I was going to reply and say its probably 1957s, they can be picked up now and then for very very low prices so not a big deal.
  11. Used to buy all of their stock as soon as it hit the website, have not purchased from them since they raised their prices (a year ago?) They are a business, no doubt they are selling everything they acquire so if someone is willing to buy then fair enough, it's just not me (or many smart buyers!)
  12. Jubilee head sovereigns are actually very poorly understood by most. David Iverson did some amazing research and along with Steve Hill documented the findings very well, I would highly recommend their book "The Jubille Head Gold Sovereign" As @terakris pointed out, generally the first legend jubilee sovereigns are more scarce

    Is this a good deal?

    Nothing from the RM is a good deal.
