    Grand Solar Minimum

    What types of food and where do you store it if you don’t mind me asking?

    Sold all my gold, got stung

    I don’t understand why Brexit would effect the gold price? Gold is a worldwide commodity, traded in 3/4 of the world who couldn’t give a damn about the outcome of Brexit. As mentioned before, it’s the value of the Pound that’s at risk. Surely gold is a good hedge against that? Or am I way off the mark?
  3. I really really hope you are right.

    Backyard Bullion's first craft fair experience!

    I used to do a lot of craft fairs and shows. Usually had a good laugh at them and loved meeting and talking to lots of people, customers and stall holders. Unfortunately it got to the point where financially it was no longer worth while and that zapped the fun out of it

    EBAY 15% OFF

    I don't think you'd need to try and hide it. Unless things have changed you used to be able to list pretty much anything in any category and the only time eBay would do anything would be if someone reported your listing for incorrect category. Maybe their automated processes are better at picking this up now though.

    EBAY 15% OFF

    OK, I didn't realise you were talking about listing something to specifically take advantage of the discount. I was looking at it from the point of view if someone is already listing for £260 they still get the amount they were going to get anyway regardless of the discount.

    EBAY 15% OFF

    The seller doesn't lose anything, they still get their full asking price. eBay covers the cost of the discount.

    EBAY 15% OFF

    There was a 15% discount that worked for coins earlier this year. Lots of people here used it.

    Today I Received.....

    Make sure it’s real, lots of fake JM bars floating around. It’s got the serial number which is a good sign. Check the back design and compare it here - https://www.fakebullion.com/index.php/component/k2/item/17-johnson-matthey-1-ounce-silver-bar Apologies if you know all this already.

    Best Buy 2018

    A ‘free’ sovereign from a combination of the eBay discount and Nectar points earned through buying stationery for my business.

    There does seem to be some who get hit by the bug, buy lots of PMs but don’t leave an emergency fund and then have to sell to pay bills. I’ve seen it mentioned in some threads on here. Perhaps that is more of a reason in the lead up to the Christmas expenses? Others get caught up in the initial excitement of buying their first PMs and buy every shiny thing they see, then later sell most of it so they can instead buy what they’ve decided to focus on.

    Help Identifying bowl marked “Balfour” and “236”

    The item above is not sterling silver as it would have “sterling” stamped in it (if it is LG Balfour as they were an American company). Could be silver plate I guess although most references to LG Balfour say they made jewellery and military badges.

    Help Identifying bowl marked “Balfour” and “236”

    It could be made out of pewter.
  14. I call photoshop too! If you zoom in it appears the packet on the right just in view has the correct "p".

    full sov weight ?

    Unless you can calibrate your scales with a known weight, they could be out slightly. The digi scales I bought came with a 100g calibration weight and I always set them with that before using them.
