    WHAT A FORUM MEMBER @CoinStruck👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
    Wind the clock back to February 10th, I’m awake at 0400am, and notice a new post in this thread...a 1oz Privy Kookaburra I hadn’t got!!
    I sent a quick PM to CoinStruck to ask if he could tell me where he had sourced the coin from, as I had never seen it before..A few minutes later I get a reply...’If You want one, I can pop back and get you one’!.yes, he was actually at the Perth Money Expo!!!
    Not knowing if it was going to be easy for other forum members to get this coin, I bought a spare one, and today they have arrived in the post...all safe and sound with no dreaded surcharge etc...😀.
    Huge thank you!

    A bumper day today with some amazing items. 
    I have been buying less but more if you see what I mean. Not a massive weight of gold but what value for the future..

    I feel a sense of accomplishment getting so many packages out the door, not sure how many but the postage bill was £300 alone. The people patiently waiting behind me in the sub post office were not so patient though they did thank me for at least apologising for the chaos I had caused...

    @shortstack68 If you personally do not want to use my grading service then don’t.
    Others , if you think going direct makes sense for you then that’s fine with me.
    When I stared this there were a few coins to be graded and I charged to cover my direct costs. Mostly I underestimated and sometimes I lost money. That still sometimes happens as I will forget to charge something or I will use SD postage to send back interim coins and not charge.
    Recently I have been doing more of this work and was approached by NGC to become a dealer. That took things to a new level..

    it takes DAYS of work to do this now and thankfully NGC give me a 15% Dealer margin. There is tons of work and a massive responsibility and frankly to process £100,000 of coins at a time and make no mistakes and deal with issues and communication and lose money just can’t happen. 
     I have set up systems that I believe can work effectively  and I have use the systems to process several thousand coins.  I publish two price lists one for NGC UK and one for NGC USA. All prices are set out extremely clearly. 
     I set out the advantages and disadvantages the costs and benefits and leave you to make up your mind what your preference is. 
     Given the effort I make with this and given the great many grading successes many of you have achieved I find the things being written presently in this thread extremely insulting.  When I first started a few years ago on this forlum I would not have been so vocal about how I felt when reading some of these insulting comments but I feel that I have pulled my weight to the extent required for me to now say to anyone writing these things  that once you start debating whether or not I should keep my 15% or not a long line has been crossed.

    Wouldn't say unlucky as poor prophet, just not successful to justify the grading cost this time.

    I keep nearly all my coins that aren't worth sending for grading in them. Handy for putting little bits of info with them ie mintages, rarities  etc..
