    Thank you to all who have replied/reacted to this thread, you have helped me out with my decision making here.  I bought the Half Sovereign😀. 
    Thanks to @Roy and @KevinJam as always, for sound advice and support.
    Thanks @SILVERFINGER.  I kind of changed the question to it being about my indecision, so no misunderstanding.   Your advice of not rushing in and perhaps regretting the decision was taken on board, and I took a couple of hours shut eye this afternoon before my night shift, and the rest allowed me to be more divisive.  Thank you. 
     As you say Roy, it will be a damn fine addition to my collection.  The extremely favourable counter offer of £270+ £7 special delivery postage by the eBay seller, in response to my ridiculously low initial offer will make this purchase over time, a sound decision.   Taking it down a further fiver with a Nectar voucher to £272 makes it even better😉
    I am in no doubt, that without the help of this Forum, I wouldn't be where I am now in my investment journey in such a short space of time.

    This thread is definitely going to be educational and, for some people, sobering stuff.
    It puts a more human face to the alternative: searching eBay Sold Listings and hoping it's not dealers buying off themselves to help hype things.
    Thanks to all who contribute. Definitely following.

    Something big and shiny arrived this morning. It's not something I normally collect but I think the design is one of the prettiest around so I couldn't resist when I saw this.

    I just got my lastest order from @BackyardBullion It started with the silver globe, one of which I managed to get hold of. Really love how it looks, with the finish and the base (props to BYB senior). Added another silver forum bar, a ripple square and some copper coins (because of the dragon design 😊) to my order. I really love the ripples on the square. It's a bit difficult to properly photograph, but it's a cool effect in the lighting.

    Added a first to the gold sovereign collection. An 1866 Sydney Branch Mint Queen Victoria Australia One Sov.

    An 1887 Jubilee Head (London Mint) Gold Sovereign from an eBay auction...
    And a “lucky dip” 1957 Gold Sovereign from APMEX.
    Overall a good spread of sovs added to the collection!

    Done the deal on an 1852 half sov this morning. It did not sell on ebay so did some negotiating.
     The seller is local and will deliver monday.
    Not the best but cheap as early YHs go.
