    Last week ..but just got one into a deep capsule today: a pile of silver BU Yales. 
    Also a gold 1/4  Yale ....sadly got a tiny visible mark on the Queen’s neck, so this will not be going for grading. Yale side is magnificent.

    sgcoins reacted to BackyardBullion in 1 oz Silver Forum Bars (2019) Serial Number Reservations   
    Howdy all!
    So, the 1 oz bars are being submitted for hallmarking next week. That should be about 2-3 weeks turnaround so we are still looking at mid May as a general release/shipping date. 
     
    Thank you to everyone who has purchased bars already - either in the form of existing serial numbers to match previous bars or from all of you that went on the waiting list!
    This thread is going to be the thread to come to for all the updates on what bars are available and what serial numbers are available. 
    The way this works is from 6pm tonight (Sunday 14th April) onwards members who have already paid for a bar in pre-order will have 24 hours to reserve any of the available numbers on a first come first served basis. Only comments on this thread will count - if you PM me then this will not count. 
    Just comment on this thread what number you want. 
    From 6pm tomorrow (Monday 15th April) anyone can buy/reserve specific numbers as you see fit. 
    PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT TO RESERVE NUMBERS UNTIL 6PM UK TIME PLEASE
    Available numbers are as follows:
    23, 24, 25, 27, 28
    31, 32
    38, 39
    43, 46, 48, 49
    50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 57, 58
    66, 67
    71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78

    If you have paid for a bar but do not reserve a number, you will be assigned one at random from the remaining bars when they are shipped in May.

    Standard or Non member price - £26.85 per bar

    Today I received some silver building blocks from forum member @OlliesSilverBars.
    Recently I posted that I had bought some blocks made by Monarch, but was a bit disappointed that they don't interconnect with real Lego bricks. In another thread someone mentioned that Ollie's bricks do, so I bought some to test that out for myself.
    As the pictures below show, the bricks arrived nicely packed in little black bags, and are the same size as standard 2x4 Lego bricks. They even have the tubes underneath that give Lego bricks their "clutch power" but on the silver bricks they aren't full size. But they do indeed stack with real Lego bricks so it's possible to make a structure mixing up the silver and actual Lego. Being hollow, the bricks are lighter than the solid 1oz Monarch blocks. 
    Of course, the presence of such treasure inevitably draws attention from the criminal fraternity, although small-time criminals are likely to make blunders when in pursuit of their nefarious activities that are likely to bring them to the attention of the law. Better hope the king is feeling merciful...

    sgcoins got a reaction from MickD in Coin Photography   
    If you want some really sharp and clear pictures, a DSLR camera is your best option. The cheapest available is good enough for this, your lens is the most important. For this picture I did use a 9 year old Canon EOS 50D, with a professional 100mm 2.8 L series macro lens.
    This coin was in a PCGS slab and I was using natural daylight(I always do), a flash is not good for photographing coins in slabs (and proof coins in general) As a background I always use a regular A4 printing sheet, also with raw coins. my aperture was a little to high with f2.8 it's best to use f3.5 or 5.6.
