    StackerNoob got a reaction from boon in Mint Packaging, or Supplier Packaging?   
    I cant be sure but I imagine that is supplier packaging. Ive had a few bars/coins come in these bags and almost always they are supplier packaging.

    That's because it was a rude and unnecessary comment directed at an individual.
    This is to all.  Keep your thoughts about other members to yourself.  Discuss any topic and product you want but not about other members.  Don't like them or their comments, ignore.  Simple.

    StackerNoob got a reaction from MickB in Do you buy new or secondhand gold?   
    Its an interesting question. Stacking in general is so much easier to maintain when you are happy with your stack. For example, the scattershot of my silver stack was seriously denting my enjoyment of stacking generally. I've now made concerted efforts to tidy my stack and develop a deliberate stacking technique and Im so much more content. The question is does it matter to you if a coin is less than perfect? If so, is that for all coins or only a subset?
    For me, as long as the gold coin has been well looked after Ill take it. It doesnt have to be brand new, but as close to perfect as possible is what I go for. I know people say gold is gold etc but what fun is there in looking at a beaten up coin when for a few quid more you could get something thats nice to look at too. Sovereigns are different though in that they are mostly in obviously used condition, but thats ok with me as sovereigns are a special coin. In fact I would go as far as saying an uncirculated sovereign looks really odd and not at all attractive, whereas a 100 year old with some wear looks lovely.

    I understand why you ask about morality here, because we live in a world where people dont like to face facts and want to avoid uncomfortable truths. This isnt a dig at you, its a dig at those who would dare suggest you shouldnt own reichmarks.
    That is just ridiculous. We learn by looking back at our history and seeing how we went wrong before. How is that immoral? Nobody should suggest that owning a piece of history makes you immoral. Pretending it didnt happen is far more immoral in my opinion. You are basically forgetting about the tens of millions of people who died just so you dont have to feel awkward about it. I have a copy of Mein Kampf because I wanted to learn what would drive a man to the levels of cruelty displayed during WWII. When I tell people this they look at me as if I've just goosestepped up to them.
    I have often searched ebay for reichmarks simply because I want to learn about it. And lets not forget, the premiums on such pieces are huge because they represent a pivotal period in the history of our species. Go for it dude, tell the snowflakes where to go.

    I stack whatever I have left after putting a set amount away into savings and paying everything off that I need to. Basically whatever I have left at the end of the month gets moved to a stack account I have for the next month. Its usually between £100 and £200 per month. A quarter of any bonuses I get at work also goes on stacking.

    I do understand that the topic has gone a bit, but I am surprised by the emotional responses to the discussions here, it is quite sad that people are not able to openly discuss a subject without people calling for censure, or responding with how outraged and disgusted they 'feel' instead of joining the discussion and arguing the facts. We have had good respectful discussion on the forum in the past on a range of subjects some along similar 'touchy' lines, entertainment purposes and we learn, so what is so different about this? Perhaps we have found the forums limit; politics, religion and mass murder all together are the ultimate bane to polite internet conversation? 😄
    Early in the thread someone mentioned that there will be people reading that could contribute, but will not for fear of the reaction. I see what is meant now, but the reactions here I don't understand. Just because someone discusses a point of view about a subject doesn't mean that person must follow it, and by conclusion in this case - deny the holocaust for gods sake. You can entertain an idea without accepting it - it is the mark of an educated mind they say!

    Talk of Third Reich memorabilia turns to holocaust denial. And that precisely why some prefer to censor the subject, because no good comes of it.  Which is a shame because the artefacts and history are just as valid as any other period.
