    Sovereigns........old vs new.

    I take you mean an Edward VII sovereign. You made me double check their site in case there was an Edward VIII going for £239. I 'd have been straight in there I've been getting my sovereigns from them for a while now as the price is quite fair. You can ask them to see if they have a specific year as well that you may be after.

    Well if it helps new collectors who are new to the forum be more wary then it's worth posting. There are sharks out there who hope they can get away with ripping people off and they probably hope no one mentions what they're doing. Give it a few more years when silver goes higher and someone wants to sell their coins for the higher price, only to find it's all worthless. I bet they'd wish they had an idea what to look out for earlier.

    I was willing to take a risk as I could get my money back if it was proven to be fake. I proved it was fake and got my money back and it exposed the seller as a con artist. He still hasn't emailed the return label so says it all about him.

    Hatton Garden Metals charge for delivery whereas Sharp Pixley post for free, which works out cheaper overall. If you're visiting London then Hatton Gardens would be cheaper if buying over the counter but Sharps Pixley also price match.

    Today I bought.....

    Today I bought 2 x silver Route 66 shields from EJP bullion. Hopefully in better condition than the previous seller I bought from. Cheaper as well from EJP so that's a plus already

    @SILVERFINGER That does look a bit tatty and they had the nerve to post that to you Negative feedback well deserved for them.

    Why no love for Landmarks of Britain?

    If the Royal Mint had a better detailed design then collectors might like them more. Here's a 1oz silver bar from Sharps Pixley with Tower Bridge. Comparing this to the coin I know which one I would choose.

    They're not that great a design, more like a souvenir shop product.

    Fake silver eagle from eBay.

    I couldn't leave any negative feedback as I opened a dispute and then eBay withdrew the coin from my purchases list. eBay protecting his and their reputation but he'll carry on because of this.

    He gave me a full refund today which says it all about what he sold me. He won't mind me destroying the coin now

    It depends on what you have to hand to do the tests. For me, having the card tester and a pair of digital vernier calipers and a set of digital scales gets me the answer i need. Having the face orientations wrong made it easier to identify as a fake.
