    mr1030 got a reaction from Pampfan in Today I bought.....   
    Just picked up a 2011 American Eagle 25th Anniversary 5 coin set at the LCS near work today.  The W proof had incredible toning on it, and was a big reason I bought this set rather then continue looking for a blast white set.  I'm not one of those collector's that goes for toned ASE's usually, but this proof is striking with a beautiful dark blue to violet toning across the mirrored fields and Lady Liberty.

    mr1030 got a reaction from Tape in Gold testing   
    The basic model will do what you want.  It tests gold, silver, platinum and palladium in various purities.  The cost goes up if you get it packaged with the different sized wand sensors which do a better job then the main sensor for very small or larger items.  The newer Pro version is twice the price but has sensors to examine two sides of an item at the same time, and with the additional sensors can do specific gravity measurements, and tell you how much the item should weigh in ounces.  I have the original one and I really like it.  I've seen videos of the pro being used and have watched the guy at my LCS use it and it is pretty cool.

    Today i received my first graded coins from @Numistacker  although they all got 70’s, but the reason i wanted them in a slab is because it is easier to look at closely and enjoy. Plus the slabs makes them feel more precious!  I even had them in scratch proof slabs but i got some scratches on the plastic 😅 i think ngc’s scratch resistant plastic is just the same as the normal one.

    Well not in the same league as the previous posts, but here ya go.
     
    Needed some cufflinks and decided to get these custom made by Rob at Coin Couture. I chose to have a pair of Victorian Silver 1887 Sixpences, as I like the shields on view, along with his Antique Finish mounted on a stainless base.
    Cost was a more than the standard coin, but well worth it, 
    Big recommendation to Rob, very talented. Pics dont really do these justice, sorry about pic quality...
     
    edit: Better pics here on  Coin Couture Facebook Page. There is also a Gold Kruggerand made into a ring

    1st coin of a new serie (from Mint of Poland) called Ancient Chinese Warriors : Zhao Yun  2oz 
    Very high premium as all coins coming from Mint of Poland, but highly desirable with a mintage of 500 and moreover, a coin mainly destined for the Chinese market. According to Powercoin, only 2 european dealer have a total allocation of 20 coins each for all Europe.
    I have been lucky to get it from Powercoin at the first price
     


    Also got last week the 3rd coin from Gods serie : Hephaestus
    Highly sought after. The coin was at 310€ at the beginning, then 450€ less than one hour later and now at 600€, and 700 euros on ebay
