  1. Thanks @KDave that's good insight!
  2. How do you buy Platinum? Physical or ETF? And if you buy coins/bars, are they as easy to sell as Gold and Silver?
  3. Very much an impulse buy as I walked passed a pawnshop where they had this beauty in the window and couldn’t resist buying my first 1 kg coin! Buying on impulse is usually a bad idea, but for less then GBP 500..?
  4. A piece of history; 1694 Dutch silver ‘Zeeland dukaat’. Not in the best shape, but given it’s 324 years old...
  5. That doesn't seem like a bargain at all... https://www.chrono24.co.uk/seiko/king--mod2636.htm?dosearch=true&query=seiko+king+seiko
  6. I have a 3 Seiko's and really like them, great value for money!
  7. In my personal opinion, the King Seiko is a bit more of a collector's item vs Seikomatic. The first one looks like it's in quite a decent shape
  8. It's not a seller on this forum, I'll leave it at that. I'll exchange it for another one, thanks for the feedback though!
  9. No, it's dirt that comes off easily
  10. I know it’s not in good state and don’t really mind as I bought it as bullion.
  11. Hi all, I bought a couple of bullion sovereigns the other day from a respected seller and noticed that one of them clearly showed the year 1942 on the front... I contacted the seller and they ‘thought it was a re-strike and definitely passed the gold test’. They were happy to exchange it, but was wondering if I should keep it as an oddity? Any thoughts? Cheers, P
  12. @Madstacks I have the Seiko Pressage SPB069, can highly recommend it! Beautiful watch, looks even better in real.
  13. Thanks @ilovesilverireallydo! In case more people want to join, here’s my link: Initiative Q is an attempt by ex-PayPal guys to create a new payment system instead of credit cards that were designed in the 1950s. The system uses its own currency, the Q, and to get people to start using the system once it's ready they are allocating Qs for free to people that sign up now (the amount drops as more people join - so better to join early). Signing up is free and they only ask for your name and an email address. There's nothing to lose but if this payment system becomes a world leading payment method your Qs can be worth a lot. If you missed getting bitcoin seven years ago, you wouldn't want to miss this. Here is my invite link: https://initiativeq.com/invite/HxW8-WJ3m This link will stop working once I’m out of invites. Let me know after you registered, because I need to verify you on my end.
  14. Has anybody considered going short Gold ETF and long Silver ETF (for the same amount), which should be beneficial if GSR (ever) goes back to more normal levels?
  15. I converted to double edge razors a couple of years ago, Edwin Jagger and Muhle with Feather razor blades and indeed good old Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood cream. Works so much better for me vs. Gillette and soooo much cheaper as well. I tried a shavette once, as I was interested in straight razors as well, but never really got a good shave, maybe just too impatient. @mr-dead do you use a strop as well to keep it sharp?
