    How about going into the new members area, saying hello, telling us a bit about yourself, what you collect or stack, where you are from etc, because there is no way on earth I would buy off of some unknown who's first post on here is to try and sell us stuff, we already have established and trusted sellers that have taken months and years to build up their reputation and friendships on here.

    Norskgeld got a reaction from Mark10110 in Michael Maloney   
    I have Maloney's Guide To Investing In Gold and Silver and I learned a lot from it.
    Got it in a charity shop for 50p...worth every penny!!
    It is a good insight into what is real money versus the fiat paper currency.
    Plenty of info about how banks work etc
    As Junkbond states there is an underlying message of "the next depression is just around the corner so stock up on PM's now" but otherwise a good read.
    Maloney is strictly a bullion guy and he doesn't recommend numismatics in this book.

    Just arrived well arrived Friday morning, this was a toss up between a shinny new Piedfort 2018 Like Numistacker got in its nice pink wrapped box or my first American pre 33 gold. I did ask for thoughts on both and most were helpful, in the end I had to make my own decision as suggested by one forum member 😂😂😂 so I went with 1904 $20 liberty from my favourite favourite dealer man.

    I checked with my home insurance provider and confirmed it’s covered under valuables.  They didn’t require any specific details but I have photographed everything for proof in case I ever needed to claim.

    Coin Cabinet is Andreas Afeldt.
    Top bloke...I can personally vouch for him.
    I think he is Swedish also.
    Agreed the Bloomsbury Fair is as Ansel describes...you are unlikely to find any pandas there!!
    The London Coin Fair is on November 3rd and is a much bigger affair and would defo be worth visiting.
    You would also be more likely to meet with Silver Forum members there as many of us attend.

    Norskgeld reacted to Auricsstash in Most expensive silver purchase and why medal collectors don’t trust silver stackers...   
    Been meaning to put something up around this for a while so please bare with for the long post.
    One of my other interests is British WW1 medals specifically to my little home town, on my local memorial there are 119 names of guys who were killed in WW1 for about 10 years I have been hunting these names pretty hard and managed to find medals to 5 of them and worked out who they all are bar 4 names these represent one of those 4 names. 
    This pair is the most I have ever paid over spot for silver they were about £250 per Toz if my maths is correct. This guy won his M.M on the Somme and joined the tank corps where he served out the rest of the war. He is not listed on cwgc as a casualty so I could never find him, but he is on my memorial died 1920 of T.B and at the time it must have been felt locally to be war related hence his inclusion on my local memorial.
    So why do medal collectors distrust silver stackers? back in the late 70s and early 80s very few people collected WW1 medals, pre internet days you had zero chance of knowing anything about the individual and as there was so much of it readily available it went in the melting pot when the prices spiked. So many of these awesome pieces of history are missing the silver medals or are gone entirely if these had hit the pot back in the day there would be nothing left of this lads ultimate sacrifice.
    Sadly there are so many British War Medals out there without cool stories attached and you can get them at way less than spot price and if we do get a to the moon scenario we get the feeling that a huge amount of history will be once again lost in the melting pots..

    Norskgeld got a reaction from mr1030 in Sovereigns or other gold.....   
    I buy full sovs and half sovs but, as Mr Dead points out, it can get a bit boring, so I have started buying gold coins from other European countries as they all have their version of a sov.
    I have Swiss, Danish, French and Austrian gold coins so far.
    Dutch Guilders will probably be my next buy.
    Makes it a bit more interesting and I suspect they will be almost as liquid as a sov to sell.
    I much prefer a circulated coin than a new, shiny collectors piece like a Britannia or Queen's Beast.

    Advantages
    Very close to spot for a fractional gold coin.
    highly liquid.
    Capital gains tax free.
    Historic coin.
    You may get lucky and pick up a rare/good grade sov as bullion.
     
    Disadvantages.
    There are a few fakes out there like jewelers coins (usually struck in a lower ct gold) even a few old gold plated platinum ones but they are fairly easy to spot when you know what a real sov looks like.
    Can get a little boring sometimes stacking just sovs (unless you start buying unique design years like 1989, 2002. 2012 but cost a premium)
    Regular bullion sovs will only ever track spot price whereas coins such as queens beasts may appreciate above spot price.

    Norskgeld reacted to sixgun in Why are so many analysts out of touch with the majority of american's financial situations?   
    Cable Network News is simply a controlled propaganda outlet.  [The budget article was CNBC - but they are all the same] The US media is a collection of controlled propaganda outlets controlled by a handful of corporations which are in turn controlled by a handful of people. It does not matter if they are publicly quoted corporations - it is who is calling the shots in those corporations.
    You have spotted a common theme. This is not one that appeared by accident. You might say this is reporting the 'news'. Yes it is but whoever told you the 'news' is true? The 'news' is just another word for controlled propaganda. The BBC was set up to entertain and inform. Who said the people are informed about facts? Entertain and Inform means to Distract and Indoctrinate.
    So you have rightly identified what is being put out is false. It does not represent what is really going on.
    If we look at the official US data about the economy, inflation and employment - this is all false. The way statistics are collected and produced keeps changing. The figures are manipulated. The markets are manipulated.
    The data is telling the world that the US economy is booming. The employment is at record levels for Blacks, Hispanics and almost at record levels for women. It is all fantastic. Then you look out the window, then you talk to people, then you see stores closing, then you see empty factories, then you realise it is all a lie.
    I fully expect this family are actors, at the very least they are playing a part, this family (in the form presented) does not exist, it is a photoshop invention, all the spending is fictional. The budget appears unreal because it isn't real.
    The controlled propaganda outlet in question is putting out propaganda. People may be struggling, they may see local stores closing but they only see the immediate world around them. To see the rest of the world they look at the controlled propaganda outlets - these paint a different picture. The gullible masses often accept this nonsense. They have been born into this lie system, they accept everything with no sufficient proof.
    The authorities do not want those who could buy precious metals buying them - So buy them until your hands bleed.
    The authorities want people to spend all they can on consumer items to keep the beast going a little longer. So reject all this stuff. Go prepper and as part of that get precious metals.
    You have spotted what is before all our eyes but only the few who have lifted the veil can see the truth.
