    PansPurse got a reaction from SavageStacker in It's almost time for my first gold sovereign   
    Places like Hatton Garden have lucky-dip style bullion sovereigns (you may get anything from a Victorian to a modern bullion one) that are usually pretty affordable. But I also try to keep a close eye on the sales threads on the forums. Sovereigns at close to spot crop up semi-frequently but tend to get snapped up. You could maybe post a "wanted" thread in the sales section?
  2. Thanks
    PansPurse got a reaction from HawkHybrid in If silver shot up in value.......   
    Yeah, but community reputation is probably not the best measure of reliability for a source. I think mine is higher than @HawkHybrid but that's probably because I like posting photos of my new acquisitions on the "Today I Received" thread. I don;t kid myself that I know more about the silver market than HH nor that courting popularity on a forum would mean being more accurate or knowledgeable on the subject matter ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Just saw your location is in Japan, so no sure UK deal is good for you?
    @PansPurse is right. A ‘wanted’ thread in sales section may help. Also, check the Gold Deal thread.

    Been making good use of my workshed. The silver project is still a work in progress but here's a little something I knocked up for someone close to me:

    @sixgun
    I was bashed a few times on my group order thread, apparently some people think I am part of a huge conspiracy - god knows what kind of conspiracy, but one nevertheless!

    Does not just go on the forum.
    Despite having supposedly come to an amicable outcome on the group order thread cravethatcoin feels it necessary to hash up the same arguments in public comments on YouTube - on a video bashing Numistacker.
    There is freedom of speech, then there is bullying and harassment....and then there is slander and libel....
    The poster of the video in question was recently banned from the forum.

    10,000 + oz of silver delivered as part of the group orders in the last 18 months. 
    Nobody is out of pocket
    Funny that that does not factor into your risk assessment anywhere
    Nor does the thoughts and opinions of countless others.

    Chess club could definitely be a thing, a piece a month until you have your full set and maybe BYB senior could put together oak chess boards?
    As an aside I'm in the market for silver percentile dice if that ever comes up (sadly none of the games I play are D20)

    Sorry @PansPurse if it felt like I was referring to ALL (That was NOT my intention)  - that is why I did specifically specify "THESE"  for that very reason.
    I know there are an awful lot of good people out there - and just a "FEW" of this type of !?  
    but my intention was primarily to defend a person known to me of EXTREMELY high level of integrity.
    I stand by the thinking behind the famous quote - - "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."
    So again Sorry - but I tried to aim my comments at a specific "TARGET"

    PansPurse got a reaction from augur in I think I want to cry...   
    Actually they've generally kept president heads off the dollar coins (one exception being the Eisenhower coin in the nineteen seventies). But after the Peace dollars there's no real silver dollars until you get to modern silver eagles (the dollar coin from the seventies onwards is cupro-nickel). Weirdly from the Wikipedia article it looks like they minted so many Morgan and peace Dollars that they were able to meet demand for silver coins for decades without minting new ones.
    The lower denomination coins do have presidents, although Kennedy replaced Benjamin Franklin on the half dollar (Franklin being a founding father and politician but never actually president)... Yes I've been doing some research (upcoming video nerding out on this )

    I think there's definitely a sense of "locking in" a good grade. Personally I feel awkward holding semi numismatic pieces for fear of somehow damaging them, but something sealed in a capsule feels less risky (I mean there's a reason I tend to go for bullion rather than numismatics).
