    I am thinking about listing some Victorian shields for around £145 + shipping.
    I will be collecting from a bank vault on Monday and hope to post pictures later the same day.

    I'm sorry to burst the bubble and ruin the fun but I've done some research into this and the photos are all old ones found on Google. This is a huge hoax and has by the looks of it fooled us all...........

    If the year has meaning for you, why even entertain the thought/possibility of selling it? Personally, I would leave it as is (in OMP), the same way I acquired it.

    ally5727 reacted to augur in to grade or not to grade?   
    A 70 grade on the quintuple sovereign and sovereign will definitely add value; a 69 will probably cover the cost.
    You will get a better price if you break up the set and sell individually if it comes to it and graded coins (even 69s) may sell easier.
    The coins can haze over time and you might want to lock in the possible 70 grade on the 5 and 1 Sovereign to avoid conservation fees in the future. 
    P.S.: nice set!

    Leaving the 5 coins as it is, holds the belief they  are as good as what is expected to be produce by the royal mint. With a discerning eye able to verify its excellent condition equivalent to a grade, slabbing is not required. 
    Grading the 5 coins will either result getting the same grade or a mix grade, value added on investment is dependent on grade type documented.
    Following with maintaining and protecting the raw or slab form from external interactions resulting in a deterioration from its original state.
    Hope that helps.

    I wouldn't have thought so myself and unless you expect to suddenly have to sell (and it adds decent value - @Numistacker?)  you can always grade in future. If the coins have been properly looked after in theory the grades should be the same.

    ally5727 reacted to danmc82 in to grade or not to grade?   
    Soon all coins will be graded which will make yours a rare set. 😁
    I think theres enough graded coins out there tbh but they are your coins.
    As for making money, if they graded 70 then yes. Anything other than that I dont think it will add any value. I think they look nice as they are in the case.

    If you keep the coins well (basic common sense) they shouldn't get any better grade now than in the future...unless you think you might have to sell in a hurry and it would add value I wouldn't bother myself.
    Looking forward to seeing what others say about the value-added (or not) aspect

    I have recently got a 5 sovereign proof set, 2011 the year has a meaning for myself thats why I got it. What I am wondering tho is it worth getting it graded and slabbed? If it gets a decent grading will it add value? if so what would I expect the added value to be (I know this is depended on different things but just a ball park figure). Not been stacking that long in the grand scheme of things so still learning. Any advice would be appriciated. I will include some pics maybe not the greatest can always try and get more. Thanks in advance.

    Wouldn’t the only issue with that be we would still get stung with the import duty and vat? Which if is the case wouldn’t it be easier to order directly from the mint? 
    Genuine questions as never imported from outside EU.

    Hello fellow silver lovers.
    I already have a 10oz Scottsdale tombstone nugget but really want to get a 1kg. I have searched goldsilver.be and euromint but can’t see that they do the tombstones. Does anyone know where you can get them less the vat!
    Any hints would be greatly appreciated.
