    rob6 reacted to KDave in Public supports parliament shut down to achieve Brexit   
    Interesting poll out, 44% of the public support Boris bypassing the traitors in parliament entirely. 37% oppose, 19% don't have a clue. Interesting breakdown by party;
    76% of conservatives support parliament shut down.
    32% of Labour support.
    25% of Libdems agree that Mr Johnson should achieve Brexit "by any means" 
    The ComRes study also found widespread disillusionment with MPs themselves, with 88% of those polled feeling Parliament is "out of touch" with the British public.
    Some 89% feel MPs "ignore the wishes of voters and push their own agendas" on Brexit.

    Just joined a few minutes ago. I live in the States near Chicago. I start collecting silver generic bars, then sold at $35, on the way down from $49. Then just ASEs, no numismatics. Until I saw the Queens Beasts. My stack is mainly ASE, but now I'm getting into collecting shiny 9999 silver.

    I would only buy hallmarked silver as it has been authenticated. I don't have the means to test and don't think it's worth the bother, for me that is.

    Yes, it matters to me on anything that's not a coin or certified silver bar. And i mean a proper hallmark not a '925' stamp that joe bloggs can buy off Ebay for £2.
    I am suspicious of any silver sold without a hallmark. And when i say suspicious i mean i have lost money in the past due to fraud. As far as i am concerned no-one should be able to sell silver items without a hallmark. 'Bullion' home-made bars etc included.

    We are both on the same page, I started this topic and pole with a view to understanding what others think, and hopefully educating them too. 
    It's not a cheap and a service you can cheat. And to be honest I prefer to Hallmark as you do MASTER 😎😎 because I know I am well within the law. 
    There are soo many other factors that are never considered when selling your poured silver in the UK  I recently has to get the dreaded "business insurance " oooh that was fun. 
    How are you on that @BackyardBullion ??? 
    I have a £750,000 Machine and good policy,
    And a £100,000 damage 
    Plus more I won't get into. 😱😱😱😱

    Regarding PURE Scottish silver advertising Hallmarking as an optional extra, I am nowhere near well versed enough to determine whether this is illegal to do.
    If it is an item that could be classified as "bullion" or a bar/round/sheet etc then it is not a problem. 
    The issue is that of interpretation - if a trading standards officer interprets differently to you then you could very easily have a visit from Plod and find yourself at very least fighting a legal battle over the definition of "bullion".
    Charging for a Hallmark is fine - but it should not be an optional extra in my opinion. Either commit and do it or stay within the confines of the exemption list is my advice.

    When does something stop becoming bullion?
    This is the main question.
    Personally I think that a Hallmark adds more value to the piece than it will cost to have done (in the long run of course).
    Without Hallmarking I would not be doing this as a business, it's the USP and this is why I will always Hallmark

    By law the easy to read black and white paper is this.
    Bullion does not need to be hallmarked.  
    Jewellery does, 
    However then there are a TONNE of grey areas. 
    I think BYB and I agree not to have issues or hassle.

    By silver bullion i take it you mean silver bars and other silver 'lump' items. The majority don't have a silver hallmark - most of what i have in this category are US - Australian made. i will still buy them. Would i prefer there were hallmarks on everything - yes but this just isn't the reality by a long way so i have to accept it the way it is.
    If i were in the business of making quality handmade silver in the UK, i think it is a bit of a no brainer to get it hallmarked.

    I will always Hallmark my silver to give confidence that your buying genuine 999 silver, this way and in my case, you can trust that the art and purity is exactly as described.
