    It is probably MI5 monitoring some chap who gets suspiciously large boxes delivered from Eastern Europe on a regular basis.

    Announcement coming this week. We are just sorting out our VAT status (trying to deregister) so that it's the right price for everyone

    I see from the latest IFF that the Chinese Dragon is a candidate for the next IFF.  Does that mean @BackyardBullion has a supply now or is that just a sampler?

    Seasider got a reaction from sg86 in Grading Test #1 - Which is the highest grade?   
    Not the only one - and I did vote before scrolling down so it was not a sympathy vote.  I am not sure about it though: the marks put me off.
    Personally I thought the 1861 was the least good - and at the moment it seems to be winning. which is why I should not get coins graded.

    Seasider reacted to Murph in World War I Coins   
    I think his first wife was perhaps the great granddaughter of Charles X 
    As for the KIng of France or French I think it depends on their idea of Monarchy (supporting a constitutional monarchy) Orleanist being King of the French.
    While France was what the traditional, conservative senior branch Bourbons used iirc.
    At least iirc it's something along those lines.
     
    How many more have you got to get Augur?  Are you going for countries that came in later and didn't take a very big role like Brazil?

    I had wondered about that so I googled Ferdinand and found this in something called the International Encyclopedia of the First World War
    "Ferdinand I, Tsar of Bulgaria's (1861-1948) mother’s side of the family was linked to two French dynasties, the House of Bourbon and the House of Orléans, and his father’s side can be traced back to the Coburgs and the old Hungarian family of the Koháry. His father, August von Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Koháry (1818–1881), was a general in the Austrian army. Ferdinand, however, was influenced to a greater extent by his mother, Clémentine of Orléans (1817–1907), the daughter of Louis Philippe I, King of the French (1773–1850). "
    I have never been quite clear on the distinction between King of France and King of the French.

    Which you could see as a positive.  The fewer there are the higher the prices are likely to be when they come on the market, justifying buying them from the mint.  Who doesn't wish they had bought the 2017 sovereign at RM's issue price?  In a few years maybe we will be saying the same about the 2017 Britannia.

    @Numistacker is the man on here for grading with NGC but given he is in the UK I suspect $10 won't cover the shipping.  But PM him - he may have a US address you can use.
