    chard

    This thread has been an education for me, I never realised that Chards sourced to order despite having browsed their website numerous times and it will influence my future buying. On the flip side, I ordered 3 sovereigns from Hatton Garden Metals on Sunday night, got an email Monday to say they had been dispatched and the postman handed them over Tuesday morning........

    Well, it's definitely a slippery slope this.... Noticed HGM had 2010, 2011 and 2013 full sovereigns listed and as they were gap fillers...... The strike on the 2011 is quite a way off centre - is this normal?

    London mint office quarter sovereign- value?

    I use https://www.bullionspotprice.com/ It gives a good guide against spot for most items.

    Old tray marks

    Given the rubbing that looks like plate to me.

    Metal Detecting

    Really pleased to find this today with the metal detector...... William 111 1696 Sixpence.
  10. The stock market is not at all time high. FTSE 100 closed today at 6952, that's over 10% off the high of 12th Jan when it was 7778 and is lower than at any time in the last 12 months. I've absolutely no idea if it's a good time to buy shares or another 20% is about to be lost but lets at least stick to posting facts.
  11. If you're looking for long term investments I'd be looking at Investment Trusts rather than individual shares. A personal favourite of mine is City of London Investment Trust. Have a google and a good read.

    Today I Received

    Delivered from HGM today. A couple of the 2012s they have at the moment and the one for luck turned out to be a 1968 in nice condition.
  14. I wonder how many people started out by collecting the various 50p, £1 and £2 coins in their change and progressed from there? Social media has also likely had a big influence too, did coin collecting used to be seen as a bit nerdy but now it's quite cool?
