    DonkeyKong got a reaction from MickB in Reading glasses or laser eye surgery?   
    I have worn glassed since I was 3, I have pretty bad vision (astigmatism/lazy eye), but with Glasses/Contact lenses I have normal vision. I have seen a consultant about laser surgery, they eventually admitted that at my ages, 43, I would still need glasses for reading pretty soon after surgery, certainly within 5 years, maybe for driving too. The real thing that swayed me was the all 4 staff wore glasses! 
    I guess if you are younger it may well be worth doing. I do find it easier to read with contact lenses than in glasses though. I haven't tried varifocals yet, but i reckon I am only a couple of years away.
    Cheers

    I don’t mind you asking at all, i am interested in diversification, which in my opinion is what precious metals are for. I don’t think PMs are a particularly great investment but its a good hedge and it is one of the places I choose to put a portion of my money. Obviously thats my own take on it due to my own personal circumstances and I understand everyone is different. 
    I certainly won’t be selling my house and going all in on silver any time soon.. Will you?

    Home from work and a trip to the sorting office to pick up these beauties thanks to @BackyardBullion for the great 1oz forum bars and to @StackSellRepeat for the lovely halves and the gorgeous French 50 franc and the great deal from H&B for the 2019 full sovereign.

    BU and Proof versions of the latest (5th) in the 2 oz Destiny  Knight Series.  Have always been able to get them from APMEX in the past as they were released, but had to order directly from the issuing company this time.  Also picked up a few odd silver ounces that I didn't have examples of.  2018 and 2019 Elephants, 2018 Bird of Paradise and 2019 Swan.

    I also like to look at it simplistically. I do not like my information shared with unknown 3rd parties, particularly when it comes to precious metals, so asked to be removed from their and their 3rd party mailing lists, simples.  A copy and paste email takes seconds, no need to get hot and bothered about it lol.
    If you are happy with your personal information being shared, then that's obviously your choice and absolutely fine, but for myself I prefer privacy.

    Well that's first batch sent off for assay testing. Little bit of a mixture of shapes and sizes. First time nerves to be expected, but pretty sure I've followed all the instructions correctly 😬
