    Fastnick got a reaction from Coolsmp in Show your stack.   
    Reminds me of that famous reply by the late George Best, when he was asked what had happened to all the money he had accrued during his years playing football - "Well, most of it went on fast cars, birds, and booze...….and the rest I just squandered"

    I keep my silver and gold coins in a wooden chest that looks like a pirate chest.
    Sometimes I take all the coins and stack them all up on the table.
    I mean what's the point in owning actual treasure if you can't play with it now and again?
    I'm thinking of getting a parrot too

    I fully appreciate anyone (especially if they are new forum members) being cautious about taking part in a Group Order for the first time, but as others have said previously, BYB is beyond reproach and organises and collates these huge orders on behalf of all of us for no financial gain, save helping promote his YouTube Channel.
    We would would do well to remember pulling these massive Group Orders together is a major undertaking and something that I certainly wouldn't wish to organise - especially if the comments/posts on here were ever to reach the point where I started to feel that putting together these big orders just wasn't worth all the hassle/aggro that I was getting......

    Which is a great shame.  The group order has been an excellent feature of this forum.
    You hit on something which has not worried too many others because it is what you'd expect from eg Atkinsons.  I certainly am a slow coach and have seen the price of a coin move while it has been in the basket.  And if the price goes up then I can berate myself for not typing more quickly.  With the Group order it is a bit different because we are relying on BYB's reaction times and how long it takes banks or paypal to transfer money.  So yes more things could happen between me deciding to buy a coin and the order going in to the dealer (not just a price change but the coin selling out!)  but that is a function of the Group Order and if I wanted to avoid the delay all I could reasonably do is do the job myself.  Personally I do not buy enough to justify ordering from Europe all on my own so I am very pleased that BYB is prepared to do it for me.

    I think we as a forum have established several things from the diatribe!
    1/ @BackyardBullion is an "Established" silver dealer
    2/ Integrity and reputation are worth defending!
    3/some people do not recognise (even when pointed out to them politely!) they are a little out of order!
    4/The forum integrity will ensure that things like the group order are sacrosanct!

    The difference is that if someone were to order from me in this group order, I have to quote you a price. I take the price at a certain time. You then pay me the price I quoted. I go back to the dealer a few hours later when you pay and the price has gone up (or down) because of fluctuating metal prices or perhaps because they have hiked the prices of a premium coin. That is where the difference comes in. 
    And once again, this is to give me, the middle man protection.
