  1. Some 1937 Aussie Crowns. 👑 🇦🇺 "Casey's Cartwheels" was the nick-name given to these large silver five shillings, after Lord Casey - Treasurer of Australia who issued these for circulation. Being so heavy, they weren't well recieved by the general public, so they only lasted for two years. There were over a million 1937 crowns minted, but the 1938 mintage is only about 1/10th of the 1937. "The rumour is that many more 1938 crowns were minted but rather than being released into circulation but they were sold to China where in 1948 they were re-minted as Chinese (Sun Yat-Sen) dollars." These are hefty to hold and can be quite 'dramatic' in appearance when the toning happens to be right. There's apparently one (or maybe two?) variations of the 1937; a minute speck under letter I on the reverse (a.k.a. the "dot variant").
  2. Dehydrated (powdered) eggs are a convenient staple to pantry (suitable also for an 'emergency kit') to any household. Nutritious sustenance in a pinch, on a bush hike etc. https://preparednessmama.com/powdered-eggs/ On a lighter note (warning for explicit language and disturbingly loud volume):
  3. Interestingly Finland would be doing better than Sweden in 2025 - and winning Swedes in anything (but especially in ice-hockey) is rare but much celebrated in Finland I believe. 😄 🇫🇮 Then again Australia would seem to be in for a minor fizzle as well - those numbers would seriously hurt some property investors that's for sure... 🧐 The notes section on Deagal site may give context to their model: "The key element to understand the process that the USA will enter in the upcoming decade is migration. In the past, specially in the 20th century, the key factor that allowed the USA to rise to its colossus status was immigration with the benefits of a demographic expansion supporting the credit expansion and the brain drain from the rest of the world benefiting the States. The collapse of the Western financial system will wipe out the standard of living of its population while ending ponzi schemes such as the stock exchange and the pension funds. The population will be hit so badly by a full array of bubbles and ponzi schemes that the migration engine will start to work in reverse accelerating itself due to ripple effects thus leading to the demise of the States. This unseen situation for the States will develop itself in a cascade pattern with unprecedented and devastating effects for the economy. Jobs offshoring will surely end with many American Corporations relocating overseas thus becoming foreign Corporations!!!! We see a significant part of the American population migrating to Latin America and Asia while migration to Europe - suffering a similar illness - won't be relevant."
  4. Thanks mate - agree it's best to try back any claims with available data. Well - and here was me thinking I was being fair to all sides for using the Total national contribution. :) For anyone interested here's a screenshot of the source table we're discussing about (the other countries and itemised expenditure lines are hidden). Total own resources in this presentation is inclusive of agricultural duties, sugar levies etc. (together forming "TOR" ) + Total national contribution. Happy to prepare another table of the per capita if anyone would prefer using Total own resources instead of Total national contribution?
  5. Been looking into the numbers as the table above was just grabbed from one of the posts on Twitter. I think the "ROI" are per capita (which is why e.g., Luxe seems so exorbitant). Taking from here the latest population figures and from here the latest (2018) Total expenditure and Total national contribution numbers here's the list for 2018 eu budget. (Note there's a degree of variation if one uses Total own resources or even GNI based own resources instead of Total national contribution).... I don't know how the "by 2022" should be interpreted - I don't have forward looking budgets available unfortunately.
  6. This guy Verhofstadt just keeps on giving... EU Membership fees vs. funds received back from EU:
  7. Heuh... there was an additional '8 reales' coin in the lot (so 7 coins, in total ASW 6.08oz) and I paid £165 posted.
  8. Meanwhile, an uplifting interlude. 🇬🇧
  9. How is it a misuse of powers if the powers are used to deliver the will of the people? Anyhow, have a look at this (video embedded)... not sure what to make of it but does not sound right to me. https://www.ukcolumn.org/article/hero-brexit-lord-james-blackheath-threatened-over-eu-defence-union
  10. I've had one encounter with Baird and let's just say I'll never purchase anything from them anymore. I hope you get your order sorted out.
  11. Verhofstadt sure did not leave much room for interpretation in terms of Berkow's allegiances...
  12. Got them from a collector on Tasmania. There doesn't seem to be much of a fan base for these here in Australia so was really surprised to find them.
  13. Some Mexican silver arrived here as well - including a less often seen 1921 2 pesos and 1949 onza. 🇲🇽
