    Murph got a reaction from Fastnick in Who's upping their gold buying, in case comrade Corbyn gets elected   
    I don’t think Corbyn would ever get a decent majority and because a large percentage of his own party don’t agree with him he’d have problems getting a lot of legislation through.
    As long as we don’t end up replacing May bot with the likes of Boris, Gove or Rees Mogg.

    Murph got a reaction from AndrewSL76 in Good & Bad news from Mr & Mrs Backyard Bullion   
    Maybe because they misunderstand it on purpose or others just regurgitate the same old tosh without really considering what it says?
    I think they somehow think that people voted into power shouldn’t be allowed to propose bills and therefore legislate or make new laws and that only customary law and/or common law is really law.
    I don’t know when they consider common law to no longer be valid and to have been superseded if at all?  Were things like weregild actually overruled under common law and if so would these freemen be happy if some doddery old judge ruled it was still valid?
    Then again maybe they don’t believe Judges have/ should have the ability to set new precedents or overrule old ones?

    I hope you haven’t been looking for too long!  I’d hate to think of you looking for years.
    Any idea if they bombard you with letters full of “offers” like H&B?  I received three in one day recently.  They may have been the same one sent out repeatedly by mistake but I didn’t open them to see.

    Don’t assume everyone buys rabbits, snowmen or the like.  I usually only dabble in modern coins unless they are particularly cheap and/or I like them.
    I prefer to buy older coins that have some history and that are more interesting to me.  They are also less likely to drop in price like most modern coins do after any initial furore has died down.

    Murph got a reaction from richatthecroft in Question on cleaning- before I get the wire wool and soap out...   
    I was going to suggest a bath in warm water with a drop of mild detergent like the one that makes your hands feel as soft as your face.
    As that should remove grease or dirt without doing any damage to the coins.  I guess an ultrasonic cleaner would do a better job than you trying to do it in a plastic bowl with surgical gloves on.

    Murph got a reaction from FFkook in Fake or real Morgan Dollar?   
    No local coin shops?  If the dealer is experienced enough they may be able to tell you or at least have a better idea than we can give you.
    Try posting on a forum with Morgan collectors?
    Use a spectrum analyser app on your phone to compare the ping to other Morgans?

    Give it a while and pick one up for less than release price.  That's what I usually do if I like the look of something.

    The pics I've seen online don't look great.  Does this years sov look a bit soft?

    The prices they show in pounds are quite a bit higher than the Euro prices though so I guess you're better paying in Euros?
    I have ordered in Euros by bank transfer from them before but not using transferwise as that adds another charge you have to factor in.  Granted it usually only comes out at something like 0.5% unless your sending a large or small amount.

    I'm here to announce in good authority that Eva is no longer with Goldsilver.be. "We are sorry to learn that our bouncer Eva is leaving us to marry and happily live in England with new husband .................. They fell in love after many loving email exchanges. Prost!" Maybe this is why customer service has gone down? I don't know, I'm just the messenger.

    Murph got a reaction from Ryan in Bullion Vs Numismatic as a long term investment?   
    Depends what you mean by numismatic.  If you mean modern issues then the chances are they might rise a bit in the buying frenzy that can occur when they are released but a few years down the road a lot of them sell for less than you paid when new.
    If you mean older coins, sometimes hundreds or thousands of years old as long as you don't over pay for them in the first instance they usually constantly increase in price but perhaps not as quickly as the previously mentioned ones during the feeding frenzy.
