    NGC Grading Submissions Open

    MS64 for the Rhodesia 2s is an excellent result!

    Some stolen gold

    This is one of the reasons I am moving to all graded coins is that the TPG will have a high quality photo record of everything and all I need to keep is the slab numbers and the receipts. This also means less variation in the insurance value with a TPG grade compared to 'was it, EF, GEF, AU etc'. Hopefully nothing will get melted down as that will be such a loss.
  3. I have travelled a bit for work over the years and can usually get a beer and food almost anywhere!
  4. Great buy, we have been looking overseas to be able to afford a place with some land as even the cheapest parts of the UK are pretty much out of reach - and Mrs ST doesn't do cold and wet! So can I ask, do you speak French? Languages are not a family strong point which is proving to be a bit restrictive!

    Beautiful coin, I was looking at a few lots in that sale but decided to save the funds I have left for Goldberg at the end of the month!

    World War I Coins

    Very nice collection of coins with a history to match, would make a great NGC Custom Registry Set!

    20 French francs advice please

    Another one for the Vrenelli fans is the NGC Registry Set:- https://coins.www.collectors-society.com/registry/coins/SetListing.aspx?PeopleSetID=169348 Contains some useful info for the high grade rather than bullion collector. I like the comment of 'The 1904,1905, 1906 and 1926 dated coins are the keys to the set and are seldom encountered in any condition' so anyone have these dates bought as 'bullion'??? as I will now be looking out for them . I only have Napoleon 20 and 40 francs at the moment.

    Nice set, the change from block capitals would annoy me though!

    Very nice, the one you graded for me was 'just' cameo 😄

    Beautiful coin - you didn't go for the sovereign or double sovereign then?? (or maybe you did) I didn't get the coin I was after, it went for >$10,000 in the end, it wasn't even the key date in the series and I was expecting much much less as they are usually ~$1000! My attempted date-run will now revert to a typeset

    Pieces of Eight (8 Reales coins)

    These are great coins although I usually collect the smaller silver reales with the 1 real being close to the sixpence! I expect I will probably get more 8 reales to complete typesets, I have always resisted due to the amount of fakes. I was considering sending the 1793 shown to NGC as there are none of this date graded but it appears to have been wiped on part of the reverse so would probably get a details grade, having said that it is the best I have seen for this date!
  13. Interesting view of the elements from the European Chemical Society which looks at amount of the element vs global demand: www.euchems.eu/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Periodic-Table-ultimate-PDF.pdf This is a PDF file (I hope the link works) Silver supply is classed as 'serious threat in the next 100 years' - so my great, great, great, great grandchildren will be rich!
  14. My original buy back in was the DOW at 22000 (no particular reason) and it is almost there, I may have to revise this downwards!
  15. I used to get lots of e-mails and letters from my SIPP provider wanting to know why a large proportion of it was in cash, I explained that I thought the markets were too high and I expected them to drop. I don't seem to have had any e-mails recently😄
