  1. Would a hallmark section on the forum be more beneficial for queries so any hallmarks on either gold or silver can be easily located? At the moment they could be posted under all three sections, gold, silver or general precious metals. In keeping them together it would then be easier to reference any hallmarks that have been identified.
  2. Buy it now for £16 would be one clue that it's fake as well as the deal for multiple purchases.
  3. Wonder if it will appear in the 'Today I received' thread? 🤔

My mistake.
  6. Wow! I can understand melting down worn out ones but do they check the sovereigns first for rarity before melting down the decent ones?
  7. There are some on eBay that will give some info on it. I done a quick search on the net and one description came up as silver plated and labelled as a fantasy coin.
  8. My first purchase of the year that I ordered yesterday from silver stacking.co.uk arrived in the post earlier. Only two more Route 66 silver shields to go to complete this great series.
  9. I blame @Kman for me watching sonny boy Williamson II all afternoon. Wow, what a decent blues player, especially when he used his hands around the harmonica.
  10. Many thanks for the book recommendation @Seth. Funny enough I've only just got home to these two books I ordered after being away for ten days in Croatia. These were supposed to be delivered before I left but I missed them by two days. I do have a Suzuki harmonica in Croatia but left it out exposed to dampness. I did try a few notes but inhaled mould spores and ended up gagging, much to my wife's amusement. I'm definitely going to give this a go, even though both books look like the old and New Testament when put together. My guitar, that I still have is a Yamaha Pacifica. I did re-string it around eight years ago and tried to give it another go but never really found the time for it. At least with a harmonica it's more portable and practical to learn. A work colleague who is retiring next month plays the ukulele and is on our local scene, it only took him a good few months to learn it well enough to play in the bars. He told me to get back learning the harmonica and join his crowd playing it. Sounds like fun but I need to learn up to a decent level first.
  11. Nothing conclusive about the actual contents but it does smell quite sweet, well this flavour anyway. I won't be trying it as I wouldn't know where it would leave me if I had a random test at work. This will end up as a gift for someone and I'll wait for their response. What got me was the tee shirt that could only fit a child.
