    I've not had a football bet for a while but when Montenegro stored in the 17th minute I put £200 on England at 21/20.
    Cashed out at half time for +£169 so I can digest my dinner.

    CAN ADMINS DO A BETTER JOB OF MONITORING WHO IS ALLOWED IN HERE PLEASE?!
    WE HAVE A NEW MEMBER, AN ELDERLY MAN.
    HE'S BEEN PRIVATELY MESSAGING PEOPLE, SENDING THEM NAKED PICTURES OF HIMSELF IN NASTY POSES ALONG WITH CLOSE UPS OF HIS UNMENTIONABLES.
    HE IS OFFERING AN IPHONE XS IN EXCHANGE FOR SEXUAL FAVOURS.
    I AM ESPECIALLY BOTHERED BECAUSE IT TURNED OUT TO BE AN IPHONE 6 AND OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING'S WRONG WITH IT.
    IT'S SUPER SLOW AND THE CAPS LOCK IS STUCK ON.

    I looked recently and basically no one but Royal Mail Special Delivery allows shipping of precious metals (in the UK). Which was a bit of a surprise.

    Given the Royal Mint is a very large organisation and will be sending 10,000s of items out daily i would have thought
    They will probably have have a different set of terms & conditions that Joe Public doesn't have
    I have read on internet research BBP and Baird & Co both have separate insurance policy cover for "goods in transit", should the worst happen

    Possibly different for their business customers, but using the parcel option from the DHL site clearly states precious metals are out:
    https://www.ipostparcels.com/parcel-delivery/uk-prohibited-items
    Express is a bit more vague. Bullion is out, as are commemorative coins/medals (but only in excess of £2,000 on the latter):
    https://parcel.dhl.co.uk/what-you-can-and-cant-send/
    For packages under £250, the RM actually use Royal Mail Tracked48. Which is interesting, as it only appears to cover up to £100.

    Panda82 reacted to mr-dead in Gairsoppa silver box restoration   
    Recently purchased another Gairsoppa 10oz 4700 mintage bar.  Comes in some really nice packaging and high gloss wooden box but unfortunately like a few others I have seen the inner skin of the box was damaged.
    Stripped it down and had a look and its only made from very thin plastic with a flock coating to give it a velvet feel :
    A quick 3D modelling session in tinkercad and a replacement is done then 3D printed.
    Just ordered a flock kit so will look and feel as original but much stronger

    Panda82 reacted to Pipers in Prices Asked in sales   
    I have been looking at the sales section on the silver forum recently.  It has become apparent to me that some are asking more for there coins  than dealers are asking for very similar coins.  I know coin collecting is a hobby, some put a very high value on there coins. 
    A lot of sale threads are honest and proper. I will not be naming names so please do not ask,
     I have a sneaky suspicion some are slowly inflating  prices, listing coins over again, knowing coins have very little chance of realising anywhere near the asking price before they withdraw the listing.  Please note at this point certain coins have less of a price history than others, plus other coins have a smaller following than other coins though internationally the coin may fetch a good price (eg perth proof) the seller decides to try to sell on the site before he lists it at a Auction and have to take Auction fees.   
    Also the new rules introduced  about sales do not help.   It also occurs to me that any seller would inflate their prices for the first 3 days , before the free market is introduced  and the real price can be achieved. 
    There is one more point,  the above points i have not named anyone it is a general post about  my observations, i do not expect to be accused of bullying.

    Yep, I'm just about the last person that needs to be convinced of that. The article I am pretty sure (since I didn't actually read it) was sensationalist garbage. I just posted the headline because the absurd sensationalism combined with them screwing up the source (Royal Mail instead of Royal Mint) amused me and I thought might amuse others.

    Panda82 reacted to Gildeon in Gold queens beasts worth grading?   
    Just a thought : if I wanted a graded one, why not buy a raw at market price plus the cost to grade it? Then I would have at least a 30% chance to get a 70 and increase its value.
