    So for some reason this was an experiment in Amazon patience...picked up (finally) a hardcopy of Monarchy, Money & Medals...

    Pre-ordered a copy at the beginning of the month with an estimated delivery date of 14JAN19...Early last week received an email saying it was now estimated for 07FEB19 - 05MAR19...then a couple of days later they said estimate was 23JAN19. Order proceeded to ship on 18JAN19 with delivery on 19JAN19. Morning of 19JAN19, email informing that “Unfortunately we will not be able to deliver your package as it has been lost in transit or damaged.” Refund would be issued. 
    I went and ordered another copy a couple hours later with delivery of today, 21JAN19...this morning received another email stating “We won't be able to deliver your package as it's been damaged. The package is now being returned. We're very sorry for the inconvenience.” 
    As can be seen...it was actually delivered, with no damage, this afternoon.😅

    I am Indian and I find these things stupid. Reverse racism which just makes people take notice for the wrong reason. I understand diversity is important, but if it’s that important, go and recruit properly. 
    I don’t care what race or gender the officer that helps me is, just help when I need it is enough.

    Completed my 1989 Gold Sovereign collection thanks to an excellent pick up from @Quicksand005...a 1989 Half Sovereign graded PF 69 Ultra Cameo. Quite a beauty!

    A 2014 India Sovereign graded MS68 DPL by NGC.
    Grading makes people mental. You’re very lucky if you can pick these up raw on eBay for less than £300 and yet, I only paid £252 shipped for this, £17.50 less than I sold a bullion 1959 Sovereign for 10 mins earlier.
    The lesson is crack open all those modern 68’s and under before selling.

    Roy reacted to Pritchard in Stack Sell - Gold and silver Coins   
    @Sal, Ultimately, it actually doesnt matter.

    In the UK (unless its different in the US) the responsibility is with the Seller to ensure items are delivered. If an item goes missing, it is my responsibility. In this case, i would defer to Royal Mail and the insurance taken out.
    But for you as a buyer, if an item doesnt arrive the Seller gives the refund. It is me out of pocket. So, your concern for my pocket is most kind. . The reason why we as sellers get the correct value of cover, and tracking, is that trust goes both ways. its very easy for a buyer to say 'it didnt arrive', if a cheap non-recorded delivery option was used.

    I wont be saying anything more on this, on this thread. You may continue this in your recent comments on @BackyardBullion's thread if you like, as you seem to be repeated the subject here in an off topic manner.
     
    Many Thanks for your interest in Royal Mail... Coins still for sale.

    @Sal if you would like to send me a PM thats fine, or if you would like to start a new thread discussing the British Royal Mail on this side of the pond thats also fine.
    But please, this is my For Sale thread. You have the answers which relate to the sending of my packages.

    Hi guys
    I’m super excited after stacking gold and silver for a few years I’ve decided to step up my game and purchase my first house.being as I’m 35 and believe the worst of the generations to be born as in the U.K. it’s nearly impossible to purchase a house without a lifetime ridiculously high mortgage which is why I started looking abroad.for the measly sum of £4000 or 4 ounces of gold 😜 I’ve purchased this with the idea of probably spending that amount again and renting it out:

    Roy reacted to Kookaburracollector in Backyard Bullion Intermediary Sales Service for Forum Sales and Trades   
    I think the service offered is superb and more than reasonable at the price offered, I bet there are many reading this that wouldn’t go through the hassle BYB has to go through for £50 let alone a minimum of £25.
    As of these newbies charging in after just joining, I think they are being quite rude. A forum is a place where members share opinions / ideas and gather knowledge over time. These people have contributed NOTHING to date yet want to come in a get a free market place for their wares.
    Each to there own, but I think to criticise the service offered by BYB in any way is unfair and shows a complete lack of class.
    Take it or leave it but don’t knock it.
    Maybe only allow members to trade after a certain amount of feedback has been received.... earn the right to use the forum,..just a thought..

    My partner and I own our home out right since  2002.  For us it has been a blessing. Since my heath took a very drastic turn for the worst in 2012 
    Having no mortgage payments to make and known we had always have a roof over our head made us feel more secure in unknown territories
    Moving forward both of us now has now got  private pensions and also have small home businesses.
    For me it is an asset and always will be.
    My mother always said  " make sure you have a house that you have paid for and your troubles will at least be halved "
    IMOH  she was right

    And I thought discrimination based on skin colour was illegal. I guess the rules have changed? 
    There is a danger with this stuff. If everyone decides to play by the new rules then white people are going to play to win as well. Historically speaking, it doesn't end well for everyone else.
