  1. Some time ago I sent an offer on a bullion sovereign a trader was selling on ebay. It was a little above current spot but not much. The seller replied quickly and gave a polite and professional reply but asked me for a more "sensible" offer. I drew his attention to the prices on places like atkinsons and gold.co.uk and he was very polite and pointed out the relatively high fees on ebay being factored into the price for selling there. In consequence both of us were wiser from where we were coming from but neither ended up with the outcome we wanted. Personally I like buying second hand or curios off ebay but don't use it to buy much else.

  6. Thanks @BackyardBullion. If I needed to make a claim but payment had been made by bank transfer would I have to get a paper statement from my local bank branch (while there is still such a thing) as proof?
  7. Having never posted any gold or silver before I wondered what people tend to say to the busy-bodies behind the post office desk who are 'just doing their job' when they ask what's in the package you're sending? Generally when I've posted items they ask what's in the package and ask if it's worth more than £20. I don't particularly want to tell them it's gold or silver, and they seem nosey enough to ask what it is rather than simply is it a prohibited item, but if I make something up I don't want to not be covered if I ever had to make a claim. I understand special delivery is the only RM service that would protect me for precious metals. Appreciate people's experiences with this.
  8. Just bought one. Thanks
  9. I try to buy as low premium as I can but I like pandas so I get one of them in 30g Silver each year. Satisfied the collection side of things for me. I do have an interest in Francs of different nationalities and Pamp silver bars but not enough to want to collect them as such, just snap them up when the price is right if I don't have the money allocated for something else. My only regret really is not joining this forum sooner as I could have picked up the 1oz silver coins and bars in my early days a fair bit cheaper than off ebay and some bullion websites.
