  1. Imo it should be compulsory to vote. There should be a box for 'none of the above' if you want to abstain, but I don't like the lazy apathetic reasons people give for not voting.
  2. I've just done a magnet test, which it passed. Slow slide down
  3. Thanks for your reply. It's a 1735 date though I think, it's just a weird 5. I will start looking up wrecks that might fit the date! Probably a lot around that time though
  4. They ignored my physical letter. Email them threatening ICO complaints and tell them not to contact you or pass your details on to anyone. I did this and haven't recieved any junk letters in months. Even after I bought 2 more sovereigns.

    Pieces of 8

    Stumbled across this Mexican 'ship-wreck' 8 reales a few days ago and after a bit of research, had to take a punt on it. If anyone knows more about them, it would be great to hear from you. Main questions: 1. Is it genuine? It weighs 26.45g, So within the weight range I would expect from my research. It also looks like the pics I've seen online. I can't spot any errors that would indicate a fake to me. 2. What grade do you think it would get if I graded it? Rough guesses welcome, I won't hold you to them I'm useless at predicting grades! 3. Is there any way to determine what ship it may have been wrecked on? I have no info from the seller regarding this
  6. I ordered three 3 coin set last year, so should have the second coin coming soon
  7. When they did the indicative votes, they really should have organised them so they actually came to a consensus at the end. I.e. the first round of votes, all the options are on the table, 1 vote per MP. The option with the least votes gets dumped out and they have another round. Then continue till only one option is left and agree that they would all do that. The way they did it was destined to fail as it didn't force any compromise
  8. Its more the FPTP system that stops smaller parties getting a look in. It completely ignored millions of people who want the greens, UKIP etc to have more of a say
  9. They've sent me 4 under the same account. Spread over a few months
  10. I'll take germania please
  11. Just been pondering my next buy on the EM and it seems like they are expanding the variety of coins they are offering. Thumbs up to them for that!
  12. Glad I never touched vodaphone. I try to avoid companies drowning in debt. I was tempted to pick up some more bt on their recent dip though. One of my stocks, ab dynamics is on an incredible run. Up 51% since I bought it a few months ago. Wondering whether to skim some profit off.
  13. Silver and gold all sold out. Only piedfort and BUNC left
  14. The snowman took all day to sell out didn't it? The Sherlock coin has been selling well when split from the 2019 coin pack. About £15-20 each, so there is some demand for it. I like the design as well - you can tell what it is straight away, nice picture of sherly and the names of the books to pad the space out.
  15. Completely forgot about this, so happy it went on sale when I was up anyway! Got a couple of silver proofs and a piedfort Added 0 minutes later... Remember your cashback for 7% off as well!
  16. Now I ain't saying he a gold digger, but...
  17. Surely it'll be easier to just change the spelling in the dictionary to match, rather than printing all them notes out again? 😛
  18. Thanks. It doesn't really bother me having to wait for my money, it was just weird that this one was saying I would have to wait till next year, where the other items I've only had to wait a couple of weeks. I have added tracking details to most of my sales, but still have had to wait. Guess it's because I'm a new seller.
  19. Couple more ebay seller questions (I'm new to this, can you tell?...) - I realise that as a new seller, ebay put a hold on my incoming money for 21 days. But why does one of my items say 1 Jan for the expected date I'll get my money? Does this suggest that the buyer (who has already signed for the parcel) has put a complaint in, or is it just a glitch? - Regarding Special Delivery at the Royal Mail, how do you actually use it to send stuff? Do they have the silver bags in the post office and you just take your jiffy bag package and they give you the silver bag to put it in/write the address on etc?
  20. Could I take a couple if you have any left please?

    2019 Sov's

    Worked for me. Have to do it by email though. They paid no attention to my physical mail. I've just ordered a couple more at 224, so we'll see if I have to send them a 'reminder' email!...
