    sovereignsteve got a reaction from fehk2001 in 🎅 Christmas Prize Draw 🎅   
    I'm considering going in for this xmas draw just for the chance to win this! even though I'm usually a miserable b*stard when it comes to xmas. Actually isn't xmas banned and aren't we supposed to call it happy holiday these days!!!
    my 10 year old grandson is a fanatic utd fan but I think the champagne and bar would be  wasted!

    sovereignsteve got a reaction from Kleiner in Goldsilver.be refuse to send my order?   
    Because that would be too difficult and involve effort and possible expense.
    Because that would be too reasonable and this guy is clearly not that. This is probably the way he works whenever anyone cancels an order; waiting for that naïve person to fall into the trap and place another order. This way he thinks he has them by the short and curlies; you can just picture the grin on his face as he was typing the replies to the OP.

    I think that is an extremely unfair comment especially given the amount of work he's done promoting the European mint and sorting out discounts which have given the members here more competitive choice. Any member on here can read through this and make up their mind as to whether they want to keep shopping with GS.be - @BackyardBullion even set up a poll dedicated to that exact topic. I personally won't be shopping with them in the future due to this incident but @BackyardBullion shouldn't be given any sort of flack for trying to offer a better choice to the membership here. It is up to people as individuals to decide for themselves.

    I did find one that scanned every 5 minutes at best but that wasn't quick enough for a certain bullion site
    Can't remember what it was called, I'll have a look.
    Stopped using it as I wasn't around my computer enough during the day.
    I think one or two on here had better apps or browser plugins/addons. They may not tell you though

    The one bad review, if it refers to a situation as bad as this one appears to be, is the most important one. It shows the attitude of the owners/managers and how they will behave if they feel they can get away with it.
    Ideally, yes, this "trial by forum" should be conducted after everything is sorted, but the OP was looking for advice on how to proceed with his problem, not slagging them off prematurely.

    That'll be why it hasn't been noticed before, they don't get the detailed attention from the serious collectors or auction houses.

    I haven't used one for 40 years and in those days it was the size of a room and probably cost millions.
    The images on the website gallery should give you an idea what it's capable of but they aren't that highly magnified. Should be ok for coins but no good for bacteriophages and viruses, which is what I was looking at.
    As you say, there are some examples in Marsh and do help elucidate overdate errors etc.
    How much are we talking about now?
