  1. What is especially bad is giving people human rights. Especially prisoners. They are supposed to be tortured like animals at a circus and never released in the public again no matter how small the crime. 😏 Speeding 32mph in a 30mph zone. 20 years hard labour and loose everything you own. It sure is great having no rights Britstain.
  2. Almost new Dewalt metal drill bits. I watched many ping test videos and the lunar does not sound right. Just dropping the thing on a wooden desk hurts my ears, such a high pitched clang. It's what Donnie Brasco calls a "fugazi".
  3. Nope. Some facts about silver: - "Silver often plays second fiddle to another precious metal, gold, but this element has special properties that deserve a good look. For example, of all the metals, pure silver is the best conductor of heat and electricity, according to the Jefferson National Linear Accelerator Laboratory. It's also the best reflector of visible light, which is why it is commonly used to make mirrors — though silver does tarnish and turn dark grey when exposed to air, requiring periodic polishing. Pure silver is too soft for products like jewelry and tableware, so the family's finest forks and knives are most likely sterling silver, an alloy of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper " It's too soft for jewelry but I couldn't drill through the lunar with a Dewalt 18V hammer drill that has never failed me before. This lunar is made out of some rock hard metal.
  4. I have my camera on charge now. Try and post pics later, maybe tomorrow. I would like to record the audio ping test so you can hear it for yourselves. The maple has a ringing sound that sounds like "ting". The lunar is high pitched clang. I have mental health issues and took the hammer to the maple months ago (maybe 6 months) when I had a really awful day. Strangely since then the maple is like a lucky coin to me, one of my favourite coins, one that I would never sell.
  5. Like I say I will gladly send it to people on the forum. One each and I will pay the postage. They can keep the coin fake or genuine. I believe it is fake because it is nothing like my one ounce maple with I am 100% sure is genuine.
  6. Like I say I argued with the dealer a lot at the time because it didn't have the original capsule either. It rattles in the capsule, clearly not a Perth Mint capsule. They were not good with their customer service and would not accept it back. I purchased quite a few Perth Mint lunars from them and I have a feeling they are all fake but I need to investigate. If the others are indeed fake I will give them away in trade section and pay postage myself. I don't want paper metal.
  7. Being super careful and leaving everything in capsules but I starting thinking something was not quite right with the coin. Now I think there is quite a few more fake sadly.
  8. No. It silver in color but it doesn't sound like silver. When you have handled silver a lot you get a feel for it. Like I say. Someone can have it for free as I am sure I have more fakes anyway.
  9. Like I say. It fails the ping test badly. It doesn't look real. If you want I can send it to you in the post for free. It had some form of mark or spot on it when I purchased it. I complained to Chards at the time and they refused a refund. Too long ago now.
  10. Just tried drilling a hole through it. Dewalt drill wont go through it. Bits start flaking off. I would bet my life it's not 999 silver.
  11. Why is that? I can show you the receipt.
  12. I have a Perth Mint Lunar 2 Monkey 1 oz 999 silver coin that I purchased from Chards a while back. I have recently examined it and it looks like a fake to me. It feels like a fake and it also sounds like a fake with the ping test. I have a 1oz maple that sound correct with the ping test. This monkey has slight scratches on it that look very dubious. When considering that I have a 1 oz maple that I have hit with a hammer as hard as I could about 10 times, thrown it on the floor, spun it round on table etc. It is dented but there are no scratches on it and no brittleness to it. I honestly believe I have a fake here and It was purchased from a dealer which is very worrying. Thought or ideas? I will post pictures of both coins later when I have charged my camera.
  13. I have paid for 2 x 1 oz silver bars for 2019. I would like to donate them to the silver forum as a competition give away or charity please.
  14. Pictures showing condition of coins helps a lot when selling or valuating.
