  1. My wife used to work for a large US medical supply company selling into the NHS for drug eluting stents used in cancer life prolongation. Firstly the training they supplied to the NHS Surgeon's / Consultants was free and first class. They were 15% more expensive than their UK counterparts but their products often lasted twice as long. Often the NHS would buy the UK product based on cost. My wife helped cut procedures for cancer stents by over 30% in her area - so much for cost based NHS procurement. The NHS is obsessed in cost control, run by accountants and not Surgeon's / Consultants and Radiologists who actually have practical experience in the Theatre. Throwing money at the NHS is like throwing money into a bottomless pit. When the Old Age Pension was introduced most men lived to less than 70. Modern medicine and practices mean we all live longer and healthier lives - how much tax will Labour take to fill the gap? Well the super rich will pay 0% more - they will just sod off to some low tax open arms country leaving Jo average to foot the bill. Well I'm not super rich but my bags are packed!!

  5. Hi all. After having a great time last Saturday, I've taken a table at the Midland Coin Fair this coming Sunday, 9.30am to 2.30pm, 10th November at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham B92 0EJ - Junction 6 on the M42. I shall be bringing along around 60 Gold Sovereigns (about 40 or so graded) for sale. I will use it as a Tester to see if bringing "The Silver Forum" to Birmingham has "legs" / demand - so come and say hello. Interestingly - Mike Veissid who organises the Birmingham (Monthly) and London Coin Fair at the Holiday Inn, Coram Street 4 times a year said he tried to take a look at TSF Lounge last Saturday and couldn't get in!! I bet he was after a free Doughnut!! I hope to see you on Sunday from 9.30am to 2.30pm - come and say hello. SovTracker (Peter Withers)

  7. Well if I'm in the country I'd happily help host / organise it!!
  8. Yes nice to put faces to names though some names are a little misleading as @Oldun isn't anywhere near as old as I thought!! There was a great sense of "belonging" in the room. Less of a "lounge" and more of a meeting of minds - though some are a little crazier than others, you know who you are!! Looking forward to the next one.
  9. Nice to meet up with fellow SF members and put a name to a SF name and see some very nice coins in the flesh. Some were for viewing and many for sale. Thanks to @Numistacker for his hard work on the day. All I had to do was turn up - not so easy when half the Trains were cancelled!! My Douro Sovereign "in a bell" with 1/2 bottle of Port was the first thing I sold - well if you don't like the coin you can always drown your sorrows.
  10. Well I'm catching the Train down and will be bringing about 40 Graded Sovereign's to sell split 50% from 1861 to 1900, with the balance 1904 to the present day. I attach a picture of those picked already in the box as a "teaser". I hope there is a little to light up the odd interest. I'll also bring a few Modern Proof's without boxes and a few other Boxed items. Sorry but they'll all be Sovereign's!! See you all Saturday.
  11. Without seeing it in the hand, I would probably give it a PR62, though there appears to be some scuffing on the Obverse which may affect the result. My advice is always to check your coins with a 5 x loupe which is what the graders use. That way you see what they see.

    Red Spot Gone

    Nope - 100% Bicarbonate of Soda. I also got a yellowish tinge to the water and a very nice clean coin (apart from the spot which wouldn't shift). I've managed to remove dirt, fingerprints and oil marks from Proof Gold Sovereign's.

    Red Spot Gone

    I've tried it a couple of times on Gold Sovereign's, Proofs and Bullion and it didn't work for me though it might be down to the type of spot or marks they were. The rest of the coin was unaffected. After trying this method I then washed the coin in hot pre-boiled water, then after cooling, I washed again in deionized water to avoid contaminates then dabbed with a quality lint free microfiber cloth (similar to a lens cloth but best quality). Always hold the coin by the outer rim only.
