  1. @Cyberwolf I think their contact page is playing up. Every time i click the email icon it redirects to their front page. I'll try them after the weekend.
  2. Anyone know if they are likely to pick up some Guinea Spades? I can't see any on the website.

    UK 'Air-Tite' Tubes?

    Hi all I'm still pretty new to precious metals and this forum and I'm looking for some advice.. Much like many others on here, all my bullion coins go into capsules for protection, but those capsules are stored in carefully (read:precariously) balanced tall stacks. I noticed a few of you seem to have placed those capsules into tubes, which seems like a far smarter idea. I don't want to use mint coin tubes because I want to see and admire my encapsulated coins, not throw them 'naked' into an opaque tube which then require me to wear gloves if I want to take them out.. I saw the name "Air-Tite" being bandied about, but it looks like they are US only; are there any good UK alternatives to these tubes, or alternatively, take pity on a stacking noob and tell me how you store your silver?

    Fake silver eagle from eBay.

    Short of doing a gravity test, is it fair to say that the magnet test is better quick test, or is it more about the dimensions?

    Slightly off-topic, but can you still get those coin ID cards? The website looks to have died a few years ago?
  6. It looks stunning. 3 coins in the series, the others to be released in 2019 and 2020.

    Dont commit until you've seen the new Captain Cook £2 coin.. I've just picked it up in Silver - looks stunning. Wish I could afford the gold.

    They better make the most of it - they are officially released on 18th June. Photos from a FB group.

    Which digital scales should I buy?

    Thanks for the suggestions - I've gone with the BYB link. Do any of you also us a more accurate, more expensive model, or do you just use the pocket model?
  10. Hi all i'm really new to stacking and am looking for advice on all the basics, including a starter kit. Can anyone advise on a reasonable set of digital scales? I'm assuming its better to pick up a pocket set as well as a more accurate home set? Any advice is gratefully received.
