    GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    So they are giving away 900 Euros to every buyer. How generous! ... No feedback. Classic.

    for sale Hand poured silver for sale

    Stunning little critters! If you could somehow get iridescence on the beetle it'd make a fantastic 'scarab' piece. I think there's a few liver-of-sulphur videos on youtube that show how to make rainbows silver with just the right amount of time, before it goes fully 'antiqued'.

    for sale 2017 Sovereigns anniversary privy

    If we can 'conserve' a 69 up to a 70 then there's something dodgy going on over at NGC. May as well slip a cheque for £50 in the envelope stating "BRIBE for grader."

    GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    If I buy one off them right now, it's £1003.09 delivered straight to me. In a hypothetical Group Order, with a tenth share of their postage to you (£1.80) and £10 onwards SD to buyers, the total per coin is .. £972.64? £30 saved? It's not nothing, but then again if we buy 2 direct to ourselves we save about £23 anyway. Much easier to 'organise' with a mate, lol. Or.. by digging in our other pocket. I've just talked myself out of it, almost. Yay logic?

    Oh, wow, I tested the shopping cart and yeah, it's 18 quid postage on 10oz of 'Roo gold. I'm so used to seeing gold be free delivery on another site, or on their own offers where any 2 ounces can be free delivered. My mistake.

    At the current gold price, wouldn't it be a difference of about £33, from the original 5% down to 1.5% cost, which more than covers the Special Delivery and then smile money for some silver. Admittedly it's a lot of cash handling and faffing, but everyone would save £23. Perhaps you could wrangle onwards delivery out to individual people if you've got a good rapport with Chard Lizzie ...Wait, do they charge postage on large gold orders?

    Chards are doing a bulk deal on some gold bullion 1oz coins, while stock lasts. It has potential for a group order if @BackyardBullion or someone equally well organised and trusted was interested in upping the stakes slightly. https://mailchi.mp/chards/gold-bullion-clearance?e=7b3af4d54f Essentially if 10 people bought in, it would be 1.5% premium on a gold Kangaroo, Perth Ox or coloured Rooster. They aren't my cuppa tea, personally, but others will like them and it's still cheap gold at the end of the day.

    Do you pay spot price for this phase of yours? I grab them at spot whenever I can but don't go out of my way, not after getting one good example anyway.
  9. Wow. Are you going to be 'randomly selected' for some kind of audit soon? Jokes aside, amazing how these hauls are growing! What's the G/SR on this order?

    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.

    It would be huge! I'd love one of those silver saint George statues, though. They made two versions, I think? @RegalStacker was supposed to be [exclusively?] selling some in the UK.

    Some coins from around the world came in from another junk auction. A few nice sharp examples. I'm really happy with the New Zealand half crown, the Innsbruck University 50 schillings, and the Rupees.

    A seller saying 'no returns' on ebay doesn't override any statutory rights you have (EU and US may be different on that). If they send the wrong thing, or an old or broken thing they said was new - basically anything significantly not as described - then ebay's buyer protection kicks in regardless of 'no returns'. In fact if they really insist on no returns, for logistical reasons, that's still okay but they have to refund you and let you keep it, in genuine cases of not as described. It'd be a bit of hassle taking pics and escalating the case but don't believe 'no returns' means no recourse.

    Some silver USA coinage from auctions. The boxed Kennedy has iridescent tones of purple, turquoise and burgundy on both sides, which is pleasing to turn in the light. Not so easily photographed. Another Kennedy is either polished or proof-like from some kind of set, not sure. The 1929 quarter is surprisingly sharp - pics don't quite show all the wing and tail feathers and the Liberty shield and legends have no wear. Nice surprise, for a junk sale.

    I love shiny silver forks, spoons and napkin rings. I find it so hard to value knives that I don't bother with them unless it's a distinctly solid / decorative example, like might be found in Christening sets. Any tips on the kinds to look out for that aren't generally filled or hollow? Perhaps fish knives and butter knives are more likely to be silver on both ends.
