  1. I've been out of the loop as well... hello there Lea 😀 The last one I can find of these selling on Ebay was for £1000. There is one for sale at £850, but it appears if you were patient you could snag a grand for it. I'm definitely holding onto mine.
  2. Well I didn't get anything in the end... so I bought 500 first class stamps for £250 ? I can offload them for face and i'll get my discount that way. I'm so out of the loop on gold/silver I don't even know the spot price ffs! Didn't know if I would have got a bargain or not. Haven't sold any gold/silver but kinda got lost into crypto recently ( and losing....) and I can feel the first tinglings of the need for gold again.
  3. Ahh, 15% is tempting me to get back into gold again. Off to scour Ebay.
  4. The one time i've bought from them, they more than likely broke EU laws by declaring it as medical supplies and it was dumped inside my back door with no signature
  5. Drop shipping can kill your ebay ratings if it goes wrong because you're relying on a third party to ship. For me at least its far more worthwhile flipping silver or even numismatic coins on ebay.
  6. Is this the same series as the 2015 Chad Hippo & Benin Rhino? I've not kept up with semi-numis releases recently.
  7. It's a classic Ebay strategy. There used to be really good junk lots on Ebay, I remember filching a ton of foreign silver from them back when it was $45 spot. These days its 99% dreck with a load of old junk coins and as someone has said strategically placed 'good' items. My favourite is the mention on some listing of 'totally unsorted'...... which means 'I've totally sorted through this lot'
  8. I got into silver at the wrong time... 2011 when spot price was $45+ and youtube shills were everywhere. I don't think I ever sold a piece of pure silver bullion for profit to this day But it did turn me into a collector of numismatic old coins, something which I would have considered nerdy just a few years ago. And I now stack gold. I actually barely even look at the spot price these day, the money I have in my metals is frankly what I would have blown on trash before so I don't see it as an investment but as a store of wealth.
  9. Mine have to be the Ghana 100 Cedis 'error' Might just have got unlucky but all 3 I had (moved them on now) turned milky real quick.

    I've received gold from them, took about 7 days... no problems, didn't even need a customs declaration.
  11. Back in the day when we saw near $50 silver, if you had made that statement on youtube comments you would have been branded a non-believer by a ton of people Never saw the point of 'prepping' myself but each to their own, they'll be the ones laughing I guess should anything doomsdayish ever happen.
  12. Last general election, got an amazing price on no overall majority.
  13. A Gold St Gaudens $20.... not willy waving, just got lucky on a bet and had the funds for something I didn't think i'd be able to get for a while. I reckon most peoples average price would fall into the first category, or the 2nd if you just stack Sovs and nothing else.
  14. Weirdly though according to ebay completed listings you could have picked these up for £80 delivered a week ago? But no bids? From completed sales I can see a couple have sold for £125
  15. I've got on board Crypto in the last few months especially. But only with money i'm prepared to lose... and I intend to withdraw any profits back to metals. It is absolutely the wild west out there in terms of investments.
