    Is it fair to say you’re a glass half empty kind of guy?

    I appreciate having the difficult decision @BackyardBullion I was merely expressing my dilemma. I am grateful for the opportunity to stack tax free.

    Maybe it’s a trick of the light, but seems to have hairlines in the fields. NGC make me chuckle, they seem a tad inconsistent. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a lovely coin?
  4. Thanks

    The Matte proofs are different as historically many were "wiped" causing the hairlines and so thats why they generally grade very low and 62 is a great grade for them. The shiny proofs all have these tiny hairlines that dont make them details but if they have fewer lines they get better grades... I sent a raw 1/2 sov pf 1887 in and that got 62 UC but had slightly more hairlines and less frosting.

    They were part of my stepson's stack. He is buying a flat and has to liquidate.
    We don't want a greedy dealer getting them do we. 
    I still love the halves more!

    A lovely full shield sovereign in decent but not perfect condition. I can’t tell the die no, but might be a 43. It’s been scanned to verify and guaranteed genuine. 
    £275 £265 Need a quick sale to fund some purchases, reduced! 
    Postage at cost 6.50 special delivery
    PayPal friends and family preferred, but add 4% for goods and services.

    Griffins, unicorns and bulls. On the face of it they are fine, but the finish is matted where the coins have been rubbing together. It’s not actually a problem, they are in my stack, I use a different source for the display set.

    Tricky one this, the queens beasts from goldsilver last time were not in great condition, fine to stack yes, but not for display box perhaps. However the Briatannias that just came from European mint were excellent, the only blemishes originating at the mint.
    I know this has been said of goldsilver before by byb. No doubt I’ll still buy something, or do I sit on my hands and wait for the next european mint group order? Decisions-decisions ?

    I prefer to see the obverse on the label side, I don’t understand why they usually have the reverse on the label side for EII and the obverse on the label side for the other monarchs?
    Fingers crossed its my half sov, I can live with it?

    Hello, sovereign day today. Picked up the 1985 proof sovereign and the three coin 1983 set with the 1/2 sovereign, sovereign and £2 coins. So have filled in a few gaps in my QE II sovereign date series.
