    Fivepoundfred got a reaction from Xander in Import charges   
    Yes with GSP you will get nailed with import taxes which do not apply in many cases. I have raised this with Ebay several times and the reply is always the same - ask the seller to ship using conventional shipping, then you will only pay what is actually due, if anything.
    Pitney Bowes who sort this element of GSP just apply a blanket charge to everything that comes to the UK with GSP, so if buying gold coins that are stated VAT exempt on UK HMRC notice 701 /21A do not use GSP.
    Silver Numismatic collectable coins have a reduced VAT tariff, but again if using GSP you will get nailed with the full amount.

    Fivepoundfred got a reaction from goldmember44 in Proof coins for investment - worth it?   
    I would say there are quite a few coin people who would say that they are both collectors and investors. They have a personal interest in coins and see their coin purchases as a safe place to " bank" their money and probably hope to see that investment grow a little over time. Lowlow commented that a lot of collectors buy coins without having a thought of how to get out of the investment which is true, but to a pure collector investment may be of no concern to them, they could pay any price for that special coin that they want whilst having no thought at all of selling it in the future or for what price they could get for it if they did.
    However if the financial aspect of coin buying is relevant you certainly need a strategy including a "get out plan" if you need to sell in the future and buying wisely in the first place.

    Fivepoundfred got a reaction from goldmember44 in Proof coins for investment - worth it?   
    I generally only collect proof coins and have been doing so for many years. I guess first of all it depends how much you pay for them in the first place. Some of the five pound coins that i collect can be seen for sale on Ebay for extremely silly prices but with a little patience and knowing  when and where to buy from you can get them for much more reasonable prices and then stand a fair chance of an increase in value from your original purchase price if you look after them well. Of course condition is very important with proof coins in particular when you think about selling, it can take some time to find specific coins for the right price in top condition. I was looking for a particular dated £5 in top condition for about two years and found one by chance at the recent London coin fair for a very good price.
    The main problem that you can get buying silver proof coins is that even with the most careful storage they can often develop spots and haze which of course will reduce the value in most cases. Generally you do not get such problems with gold proof coins.

    Fivepoundfred got a reaction from Ablist in PCGS Gold Shield   
    PCGS are currently quoting a crossover success rate of 38% over the last 12 months but does not specify which coins have been submitted. All of the modern gold proof coins i have submitted for crossover have been successful so maybe the older coins do not fair so well ? I have been grading with PCGS for some time mainly using the Paris centre, the service is very good and you can get your coins back in two weeks if you time it right. My only complaint is that i have had debris inside the holder several times, the worst been a 1cm fibre or hair and sometimes the holders they use are marked, but in both cases they rightly reholder free of charge.
    The main difference with gold shield is that you get a high res photo on the website and PCGS claim that it gives enhanced security.
