    dicker got a reaction from Xander in Cash machine device with camera   
    I understand (and could be wrong) that this type of device is engineered and run by Eastern European crime gangs. I was told that it is inexpensive to make and they can afford to lose them and would rather do that than have a confrontation.

    Bargains can be had including commission on top but it's worth calculating your top bid with commission prior and sticking to it. You'll usually find the bids will be about "right" that everyone is working out cost with commission so sovs will be say around 200ish plus commission usually.

    It's a great concept but looks like poor execution. Owners trying to make a quick buck or two.

    If you drive into the zone at 11.59 day one and leave at 12,00 day two you get charged double even though there is the possibility you spent the majority of this time in a Hotel and your car went absolutely nowhere.

    Remember these?
    I have the good fortune to have an aquaintance who works in a lab who agreed to provide some TLC to my 1937 set.  
    Here’s the before and after, and further below is a couple of shots of the 8mg of detritus that was removed from these uncirculated coins- including the remnants of hot dog! 
    Always remember kids- wash your hands after handling circulated coins.

    I think a stacker is someone that would dump everything they hold tomorrow if the price was right.
    A collector is someone who you would have to prize their choice coins from their cold dead hands no matter what the price.

    You just can't touch anyone with zero feedback, they have nothing to lose by screwing you.
    I spotted this one last night as well, £26.66 on a watch that is usually £70 or more and includes postage from Australia.

    dicker reacted to sixgun in Flog It!   
    What a BS story - as pointed out.
    The guy had to have this coin to complete his collection - it is in decent condition - so the coin completes a collection but he is selling it. Yeah right.
    He allegedly bought it for £1000 but was happy to let it go for £800 - there's 1.177oz of gold in one of those coins so scrap value it is £1165 worth in it at today's prices - probably not a million miles from the price then. So he is 'happy' to take a 30% hit in the spot value. This is an 'expert' collector selling the coin and the BBC expert is giving this expert opinion.
    The guy could have posted it to HGM and sold it for more, even if it were totally mangled up.
    The coin is fake, he's a liar, the BBC expert is a charlatan, it's all fake - but what more can we expect from the BBC.

    dicker reacted to sovereignsteve in Flog It!   
    I hope not.
    Almost certainly fake and £1400 + buyers commission will take it up to £1750 or so. It's worth it's bullion value only.
    What's the chance of a gold coin bought in Crete being fake? I've no idea but why would the owner be selling it? He's always wanted one, needed it to complete the 1887 set and it was a very good grade coin.
    He knew it was fake, that's why he's offloading it! 😁
    Also, where do they find these auctioneers? Bids over £1000 in £10 increments; most of them do £50 at this level.

    I hate it that I am so stupid and cant figure out how to create a website on a simple platform.
    I have started to and here you go. its
    www.acebullion.co.uk
    I am honestly so bad at this. I have it live at the minute so people can see it but as you can CLEARLY see I am far from having a perfect or even respectable setup.
    I want things like the gallery to open and show multiple pictures of that item. I want information to actually save.
    I don't know what I am doing... I hope to get some help from my Sister this weekend.... We will talk from across the globe trying to figure it out.
