    Package received today, left it at bloody work though so the unboxing will have to wait until tomorrow.

    Haha trust me you wouldn't want to smoke that. Hot rocks would be dripping silver.
    That's actually silver cement recovered from a karat gold refine

    Free silver is better
    I got into PM's when gold was £36 a gram! I remember sitting at my pals house having a convo about how I can get gold cheaper than that. Some googling later I happened across a couple of genuine sites for refining pm's, this lead to learning about pm use in industry and how one can get his hands on said pm's cheaper than spot. After some piss taking from friends and me on a mission like some 17th century alchemist to prove this could be done with buckets in a back garden I learned, sourced, recovered, refined, melted and then sold a tiny 1.4g of what was confirmed as 999 gold. Since then I have turned around a fair few KG's of gold, learned some more and realized in the gold industry you rarely pay for silver. Pretty much all karat gold is alloyed with silver, palladium, copper, other metals too but you only ever pay for the gold the silver and any pgm's is always a free bonus. Since those early days I think about metals every day! I only wish I could have afforded to keep all the gold and silver that's gone through my buckets.

    supersealed got a reaction from Ansel in European Mint Promotional Offer - Free oz of Silver!   
    Thanks for sorting this promo out BYB, my shiny 1oz Britannia arrived safely this morning. Its a nice little motivator to do some stuff I otherwise probably would not have done
     
  22. Thanks
    supersealed got a reaction from Ansel in Free silver, 60oz unboxing, gold, close ups and Murder (gloves)   
    I thought they both came in tubes of 25 and I wanted a couple to show off without having to open the tubes. Didn't realize the Britannia's came like that. It was lovely, I enjoyed making it
    Open an account via my link and you can get a free oz of silver with your shiny new 1oz oriental gold Britannia

    Lighting is very tricky to get right, especially combating glare. I have been using natural light from a window with wooden slat blinds that I can adjust. This helps but is still not perfect, especially when the coins are in capsules that are so reflective. I guess I could cover the whole window with a big white sheet, effectively turning the window into a giant soft box to diffuse the light. 
    I think the glare is ok and actually quite nice as long as you keep it minimal. 
    Focus is another thing altogether and you just have to play around until you find something that works for you. I have a very contrived set up for my camera/iPhone but it seems to work well. You may have seen this photo on another thread:

    For most of my videos I wanted to get the objects closer so used a covered shoe box on the table. Then I thought, "Hang on, lose the shoebox and one of the wooden CD crates, that will make the whole set up a little steadier." It did make it steadier, however the auto focus on my iPhone kept hunting even if there was a coin right in front of it. Hmmm, must be the different background, so I tried covering the table with the same covering I used on the shoe box. No difference still the focus kept changing. 
    I put the extra crate back and add the shoe box again, which is very close to being the same depth as the crate, and the focus is pretty much rock solid. Strange that it should make a difference but it does so that is what I am sticking with for now. 
    It is pretty great that we have all started with making videos at the same time as we can learn from each other @supersealed and @PansPurse.
    I'm having a lot of fun with this and it is nice to have the videos to look at your coins when they are in storage and as a record. If it wasn't for @BackyardBullion's offer via our European Mint order I wouldn't have started on this YouTube path. 
    It is just over a year (yesterday actually) since I started stacking PMs so I guess a full stack video could be in order soon.

    The coins are so small its difficult to get them in focus plus my lighting is a bit iffy, I tried to add extra light but as you could see glare was also a problem. Ill try harder next time though
    Yeah as for the referral its a nice little bonus, the premiums on the gold are fairly low and postage is in with the price. BBP use special delivery which is expensive so I don't mind the added premium, on a small order the ounce of silver more than covers it I think. I believe the free ounce is a one off, I don't know maybe they have a glitch but I've made 2 orders now and got a free ounce both times. When I log into my account now the system is still offering me a free ounce for spending over £250.
