    The last few packages on our arriving for the heritage UK grading. I wanted to take this opportunity to wish everybody who sent coins in for grading the very best of luck.

    Hello, the 1911 proof sovereign arrived this week (same day as the 1911 1/2 sovereign but from a different dealer, I posted photos of that coin yesterday). The sovereign is a PR64CAM. 
    In the same package was the 1991 sovereign, PCGS70DCAM, and a lovely 2005 1/2 sovereign.

    Another result was announced yesterday and I wanted to talk about this one specially.
    I bought a New Zealand Kiwi coin shaped like an egg at the Great Collections Auction as a NGC PF 68

    As you can see it looked less than perfect and it had no real interest at the auction despite the low mintage of 500 coins. This coin is an @augur favourite and I really only noticed this because he had previously sent coins in for grading. I paid $355 for the coin plus 10% buyers fee (for a cash payment) and I believed that NCS could make this coin as great as it could be. NCS conservation is $28 and so the investment in this coin was 

    $390 plus $28 so a total of $418.
    The coin was sold out at the New Zealand Post office a little after release and mintage is only 500. The mint price for a coin was $845 NZ$ (£442 and US$586.77)

    After conservation the coin achieved PF70


    How much is the coin worth as a PF70? Your guess is as good as mine....
    I wanted to show you this as a worked example as it is quite interesting to see the story played out. Net price mint raw less $150 and outcome from grading and conservation probably mint + 40% (but unknown)

    A few coins arrived today. This is one I bought from Atlas Numismatics in the US (first time I have purchased from them). It's the 1911 proof 1/2 sovereign, 66CAM. Lovely coin.

    Panda82 reacted to Numistacker in Heritage Auction Consignment (New Numistacker Service)   
    As if life isn't busy enough with my day job and taking in coins for grading at NGC I am very pleased and proud to launch a new service that I hope will really help forum members and others to tap into the USA coin auction scene.  I have found that items that are between say $500 and $1,000 are not that easy to enter into high end auctions where they can be marketed to top end buyers and Heritage for example would normally only be prepared to take singles or lots with a value overall of say $4,000 plus, so I have arranged with Heritage UK to act as a consignment consolidator and thus provide a route to auction for the kind of items that you guys have in your collections and that you have been sending me for grading and conservation.
    Heritage have regular weekly internet only auctions and regular special auctions for both USA and World material. These larger auctions often get great prices for good world coins and they represent a great marketplace for our coins. The top end auctions are "Signature" or "Platinum" and coincide with the major USA coin shows. I have already consigned the first coin to the Platinum Auction with an estimate of $8,000. 
    Bidding will start at 50% of the agreed auction estimate and once an item is consigned it cant be reclaimed and will be entered at auction in the USA via Heritage UK. All items will be transported to the USA fully insured. There is a minimum estimated value per item of $500 and no maximum value. You are welcome to consign more than one item to me.
    How does the system work?
    Heritage will sell your item in US$ and then 40 days after the auction is complete will remit the funds to Heritage UK who will remit the funds to me and I will then immediately send you the proceeds. The buyer will pay the hammer price for the coin at auction and a buyers premium of 20% of the hammer price. You as a seller will get the hammer price of the coin less a % charge that depends on the hammer price of the coin.


    Examples A gold coin sells for $5,500 at Heritage Auction, the remittance to you will be $5,500 less 2.5% consignment charge which will be $137.50 so $5,362.50.
    Is it worth using this service rather than ebay? For some items yes definitely and others no. The benefit of ebay is immediate cash payment for the item but there are risk attached and if the item is specialised then it can be dangerous to use a low start auction and fixed prices can attract no buyers. 
    Do coins sell for more in the USA than the UK? Have a look at the Heritage Auction Price history and judge for yourself. I have seen UK coins go for great prices at the larger Heritage auctions and so if you have the right material then it may be the kind of thing that will work for you.
    If you think that you may have something that would be worthwhile to send to Heritage for Auction then send me a PM.
    I will be adding to this thread just like the other NGC grading thread over time. Talking about coins that have been consigned, perhaps reviewing consignments on the youtube channel and reviewing prices obtained at auction to monitor how this is working for consignees.
    Interested to know what you think and whether you think that this service will be something useful and fill a gap in the market.

    Well what can I say, labelled non piedfort coins as “PIEFORT” paying for special labels and not delivering. But this is the best!!!! They have someone who works and gets paid in their “Quality Control” department who thought this 2p was acceptable? Must have been there last day working there and fancied a laugh!

    Lots of grading and trays have come in so far. The deadline is 17 June.

    If you are unable to meet 17 June then the next deadline will be around 25 July.
    It is likely that the strike on the day sovereigns will start coming through over the next week also and I plan to try my best to get these in the heritage grading deadline if they are sent pronto to me.

    Hello. We see a lot out there about the importance of acquiring precious metals but exit planning talk is rare in comparison. Some are predicting 5k and even 10k gold. My question is where to sell at that price? Mom and Pop coin shops don't have that kind of dough. Will Apmex then buy collections at 5k-10k oz? Have we all kept our receipts to protect our capital gains?
    Also since gold and silver price seems manipulated, is this talk of skyrocketing metal price all BS hype put out by Gold/Silver companies to sell more coins? I've been noticing that the ones who keep talking about it are people like Peter Schiff and Lynette Zang etc who sell metals for a living. I am old enough to remember only twice where a significant spikes occurred. In1980 gold went to $800 and 2011 it went to $1800. So unless we have a truckload, all the time acquiring and storing etc isn't all that profitable compared to other investments. And I understand that many gold/silver guys do it as a hedge or as a way to protect their wealth but most guys I know do it dreaming of a Bitcoin type run that may never happen.  Maybe Buffet is right.
