  1. It’s from the London mint office:
  2. Was lucky enough to pick one of these up last month for £249 from my local pawnbroker in a nice wooden box with certificate
  3. Sorry for the late reply I’m actually doing some final bits ie decorating.roof is done as are all the electrics.will be adding furniture and appliances as renting furnished makes me exempt from some of the taxes here.total cost including the purchase £9200 and estimated value is around the £22000 mark.i wont be selling anytime soon and have already placed an ad for £250 a month with quite a bit of interest.will upload some photos when I get home as internet here is the equivalent of dial up...
  4. Selling my 4 ducat coin *sold*
  5. Selling my proof half Britannia the coin has some damage so I am selling it at bullion price **sold**
  6. Just an update received today and it is indeed a full proof!not bad for the price of a half
  7. Exactly it was listed as a half sovereign however weight was listed as 7.99.
  8. Just purchased a sovereign advertised as a half but to me looks like a proof however no proofs or uncirculated were minted in 1981.any thoughts?hopefully it’s a full sovereign
  9. Inlaw is an electrician and for the roof it’s a reputable french builder at least I hope he has 5 stars on meilleur-artisan....
  10. The key is to find a privately advertised property as notaires/agencies add a percentage and negotiation fees.for example this house granted it needs a lot of work but if you find the seller pretty sure you’d get it for half that: https://www.leboncoin.fr/ventes_immobilieres/1602480536.htm/
  11. Advertised price was 15k then lowered to 10k and that’s when I put in my offer of 4500 that was accepted.that was euros so about £4000
  12. Just got back from signing with the French notaire last week so it’s officially mine and have the keys.one thing to look out for is the notaire fees which came to £1200 on top of the purchase price and that includes a ‘diagnostic’ that says no asbestos,fungus major building defects etc.electric and water being put back on the 10th of may and then will start work estimates as follows: -roof £2000 -electrics £750 the rest of the decorating etc will doing myself so will update when completed.but looking at around £2000 hopefully all in all it was not at all as bad as I thought.looking at a July/August finish date.
  13. Last of my gold stack clearance 1oz Britannia £980 inc postage special delivery **sold**
