    Clens92 got a reaction from ChrisSIlver in Thomas Hemmings candlae sticks Forsale   
    I see no proof that these are Thomas Hemming pieces.  There is no hallmark, for one.
    I see a little possibility that it may be sold by another silversmith, turn of the 20th century, with the candlesticks being German imports - but again, struggle to find too much evidence for this.
    I'm genuinely interested as they're delightful but would like more proof please.

    It's also perfectly possible to eat in a good Tokyo restaurant for a completely comparable price to the UK... even easier in somewhere like Sasebo!

    Not always with the buyer.  I have won most of my disputes as a seller, because the evidence I provide is irrefutable.  Don't buy on the basis that you'll win a dispute; if they're a good seller then eBay will back them.

    Long and rather self-righteous investigation confirms nothing new. 
     
    XRF is not perfect; the only perfect method is a destructive test.
    How are Chards trying to make a story out of this?

    Looking to sell my 1oz Gold Queens Beast Lion of England. 
    The coin pictured is the exact coin you will receive, and it’ll come in a protective flip. 
     
    £1425 net to me - happy for BACS / PayPal. Plenty of feedback available; just ask if you’d like more reassurance. Postage by Royal Mail Special Delivery is included!



    I do have a second if anyone is interested (it has an edge ding so haven’t advertised as of yet).

    Thank you for committing to buy and then refusing to pay because your ‘friend’ offered you something else. 
     
    Really useful member of the forum... it really beggars belief.

    Clens92 reacted to shortstack68 in British or USA Gold-- What is your preference?   
    I like my coins with history, so it has to be British.
     Its a pity America became independent, you could have had more variation with successive kings and queens and even a British civil war coinage, interesting stuff 😁

    Clens92 got a reaction from Bullionbilly in Gillete advert   
    Honestly, it's not a bad advert.  Nothing within it is that controversial - don't be bullies, don't harass people etc - but it's just not anything to do with a razor company.
    Why they chose to air it is baffling, it looks more like a political campaign video.
    Just sell razors, it's not difficult.

    Clens92 got a reaction from kneehow2018 in Today I Received.....   
    A couple of small gold Pandas - 1996 and 1997 5Y.
    Some red spotting on both, but I've read that red spots don't tend to affect grading?  Either way, both in OMP and off to NGC for a fingers-crossed moment.
     
    Also a very rare platinum panda which shall remain under wraps for now.

    They sent you double the coins you paid for?!  That sounds like a win!
    As a possible solution, you could try submerging them in warm water?
    Just a tip though, sweat will transfer through latex gloves and can still affect the surface of the coins.  White cotton gloves are really the way to go.

    Then you miss out on 95% of the good deals.  Your loss, nobody elses. 
    BTW, the cost of using a verifiable but non-accurate address on Companies House is no more than £300 per annum; it's far from a foolproof strategy.

    That's because you think literally everything is a conspiracy.
    Using Moazzam Begg, the friendly neighbourhood terrorist, as a source is hardly helping your argument. 
    If you're saying there is 600 dead, you have to provide the proof.  Videos of anarchists interviewing certain types of people isn't proof.
