    Roy reacted to Paul in What Would You Do In This Parking Situation ?   
    Queues, traffic jams, no parking, massive amounts consumer zombie drones about (i.e. Christmas Shopping)
    Far better to plan your day around not putting yourself into this situation
    Nothing better than going shopping at midnight, parked at the door, in n out and possible to bag a few bargains
    Anything like concert or football match in town, just easier for me to get bus or metro into town, and walk. Can also enjoy a few pints to and leave the driving to someone else

    Yesterday I HAD made..... (warning:pic heavy) edits to come

    Remember these? @GoldBenj had them for sale. 3 x 22ct bands, 10.2g at near spot.....hmm.
    I approached Ben with an idea, nothing dramatic or exciting but could he do it? No problem guvnor 

    A 10.2g lump! Yippee....wait for it....



    Look at this machinery! Proper craftsmanship. Love it...it's probably as old as @Oldun? 

    Nipples

    Taking shape.

     Yes, this is for myself. When Ben asked me what style I would like the ring, I wasn't sure. The idea was to create a bullion ring, as near to spot as we could. He recommended a classic 'D' shape because there would be the least wastage (filing etc.)



    Talent

    9.4g  5mm

    Finished. The ring was completed in two days, the assay took time....Cheltenham didn't help! lol
    You all know I'm a soppy old tart. I'm pleased! I have a hand made, pic documented 22ct ring, and it's personal. 
    Made in England.
    It's fantastic Ben.

    I'm waiting for the 'for sale (As authenticated by the famous Numistacker)' tag.
    And the 'for sale (even though I only bought it last week on the forum/royal mint for less) tag.
    Should help to separate the wheat from the chaff.

    I've recently noticed a new heading format for items in the for sale section;

    Is this style going to be expanded in the future to specify sales by Gold, Silver and non-paying members, or is it somehow supposed to suggest that Platinum members' sales are somehow special? Or maybe that it is likely to be a sale by a dealer?
    NB No implied meaning intended to the platinum member whose sale I capped😉

    Roy reacted to sovereignsteve in Question on cleaning- before I get the wire wool and soap out...   
    Not sure if acetone on it's own would be sufficient, maybe a non-polar solvent such as a petroleum based one. A little detergent would be good for the silver but don't clean the copper/bronze coins with anything aqueous.
    Other than that, I'm not much help. You really need someone more knowledgeable than myself in old silver and copper coins.
    I'm sure one of the dealers on here would be expert enough to know about these things; someone like Marc for example.

    @sixgun is the forum nut-job, the position has already been filled.
    He is also very well read, highly informed and respectful to those with differing opinions. He will always back up/quote his sources.
    He is also wrong on many topics but we don't need to open that box today. 😉
    Enjoy sparring with him but expect a bloody lip 😁

    Like my local Asda says every penny counts . I am buying 10x 1oz QB gold coins for each release to complete target stack 100 oz in gold all in QBs premiums over spot and spot price with GBP/USD exchange rate all makes a big difference.
    I backdated the collection last year paid on average Lions £1250 / Griffins £1150 / Dragons £1100 / Unicorn  £935 / Bull £935 / Falcon £935. At current spot prices (not taking into account premiums) break even. I am hoping $1360 gold price resistance holds head lower. I will be contacting the European Mint should offer 2% above spot price (obtain custom quote) if you intend on buying a tube of 1oz gold coins.
    The next gold bull run has began........ The powers that be will not let £1500 happen under normal circumstances. I am holding out for a lower gold price and stronger pound but it is risk but that what makes PMs interesting.
    Only bought nine of them I will need buy another 140 of them and flog them off to Atkinson bullion to bring down the cost to last years Falcon price for quantity that I am after. I don't think there is a boat larger enough to push that far out, wait I found a boat and it is called RMS Titanic....

    Sell some of those Harrington and Byrne sovereigns and get it bought 
    I am waiting but only because I spent my beast money on platinum. There's no rush they mint these things for 12 months after release.
    Where will gold be in 12 months though. £1500 an ounce knowing my bad luck.
