    Red spot disaster!

    Visited the safety deposit box earlier today and was greeted with this horror show five sovereign piece. Any suggestions on where I could get this “conserved” would be gladly received!
  2. No. All a DBS check (of any flavour) does is proves if a person has or hasn’t been caught. Trustworthiness and integrity are things that are earned, not proved by a bit of paper. There are many unscrupulous characters in this business we call our hobby ( a couple of dealers spring to mind) who I’m sure would pass a DBS check. I still wouldn’t trust them as far as I could throw them. Of course, I’m not commenting on your trustworthiness or integrity, just commenting on DBS checks generally.
  3. This privy mark buisiness is all getting a little bit silly in my opinion.. The Royal Mint seem to be slapping them on anything and everything and I feel it’s become too much of a gimmick.
  4. I don’t see what the issue is here, I thought people on this forum were entitled to post their opinions on experiences they have had when purchasing PMs. Even if some members have been critical, to my mind nothing that has been posted has been false or particularly malicious in nature. TBC dropped the ball, then tried to rectify it while continuing to communicate with customers in a strange defensive manner. If it offends, don’t read.
  5. I’m interested to hear peoples thoughts on the future of Matt BU sovereigns. Is this just for 2019 or will all BUs and SOTD’s now be matt? I like the finish and hope they are just something special for this year. I fear however, that the Royal Mint will milk the cash cow and they are now here to stay.
  6. I think we can guarantee that we will also be gouged in the future for any strike on the day releases. I feel £500 will appear a paltry sum compared to what they have in store....😔
  7. The increase for the BU matt sovereign is extortionate! I really wonder how they can justify such a jump in price. Although, I’m sure they have no need to, as people will no doubt still buy from them regardless.
  8. My gold stack. Apologies for the horrendous lighting and picture, I’m clearly no photographer.
  9. @ittle5huggy If you read previous posts regarding The Buckingham Collection, you will see that lack of communication is par for the course. That being said, they are genuine, and will no doubt make good on your order.
  10. Not so sure of that, I tired to pick one up and had it ripped out of my basket by 0703 GMT like most other people here appear to have experienced. Still, thanks to @westminstrel for the coin connection link...saved me from complete disappointment while I was flailing around half asleep trying to find an alternate way to pick one up!
  11. I bought a sovereign and received a free half sov (thanks) from TBC. @TheBuckinghamCollection As I have alluded to previously, I feel the way you deal with customers will win you few friends on this forum. Customers can be a pain in the a*se, but it’s better to act like the bigger man and keep your hot headed reactions out of view of potential customers.

    Pccb sovereign

    I’m by no means an expert on the subject but there are a couple of things that appear slightly off to me. 1. Colour - looks too brassy for a sovereign (although hard to judge with poor quality images). 2. Both the obverse and reverse look like they are lacking detail (again poor image quality doesn’t help). 3. The item description reads as if it’s a disclaimer for the item being fake. 3. A quick google search will show you these “PCCB” graded coins are often associated with fakes. Hope that’s of some help in lieu of a better response.
  13. I think there is a way to deal with disgruntled customers tactfully. They have shown on a few occasions now that their method involves hot headed responses that may make potential customers wary in dealing with them. I appreciate the situation and that what they are trying to do to remedy it is very generous indeed. However, given the fact that they have previously been extremely poor when it comes to communicating with customers I think they ought to be a little more understanding with shiny89s frustration when he rightly or wrongly thought his emails were being ignored.
  14. I appreciate you’re defending your company but airing your grievances with your customers in public makes for uncomfortable viewing.
  15. This is uncomfortable.
