  1. dhl and dhl express do not have an insurance. They may have a own insurance, but its not handled by DHL. We had this problem very often.
  2. Exactly. Be carefull by shipping to US at the moment. Try to ship below 1500.- USD, otherwise it may be very expensive at the end. We have a insurance up to 25.000 USD to US, but this includes only if shipped by UPS Express Worldwide (Capital) and is 35 USD +0,35% insurance.
  3. We (Rosland) don't choose the winner. The Silver Forum will do that. We just offer the prizes and do the shipping directly to the winner. Chris will release all possible prizes soon. We ship to every country since we are located in US, UK, SE, HK, DE and ship whereever it makes more sense. Best, Emanuel
  4. Wow, thank you for the review. We send you a new box because the old one had some scratches due the transport. But ... we have a new british museum series 2020 very soon 😉. edit: Sorry that i was not very active in the last weeks, but we were busy preparing something bigger. Ill be in TSF at least every 2 days now and update the informations frequently.
  5. EC8 coins are officially released as BU. We request PL coins and got some which were "at least what sm wrote" polished and costs a few dollars more/coin. But we stopped now since pcgs started from one day to another grading those coins as MS (after they were graded as PR already). Somalia 2020 were only minted in BU yet. This is, why grading a 2020 somalia elephant as PR 68 coin was funny. Previous Elephants (2019 or older) were graded as PR as well.
  6. Happens often. I mean.. color is color, isnt it? Edit.. tbh.. pcgs grade 99 percent of the coins as they should be. Ngc is maybe 80 percent since we tried removing the blister, cleaned it and resubmitted it very often for testing. They almost got a better grade every time. The ec8 coins are more or less exclusive from scottsdale mint in a proof like Quality made for rosland.
  7. as i said.. after cleaning they look like polished coins. Sometimes it happens that PCGS grade them as PR. Happened with a somalia 2020 Gold (1OZ) coin a few days ago. Could you please tell me whats listed on the picture? Usually we tell them when its bu, but this happen very often.. and we send thousands of coins.
  8. wanna bet? 😉 Its not magically.
  9. Hello Frenchie, as i wrote i did it at home because a member asked for that. Those coins are already registered for melting. Liberty High Relief coins are _NOT_ proof. They are BU and got the worst quality for all coins ever minted from the US Mint. I use only cold water, and usually i let them air dry. In the video i dried it in a wrong way, but i wanted to show the results afap. Ill create another video in our photo studio/box in the next days.
  10. We tried many different ways for cleaning coins. Baking Soda, Salt, Gold Cleaner, Polishing, ultrasonic cleaners, ... At the end the salt + alumium foil was the only way not to damage the coin. We damaged some coins doing this when we tried to dry it by hand. But the problem is, that the salt is still on the coin and scratches will appear. Just let it airtry or use a very weak fan.
  11. baking soda destroyed our coins, yes. Its too aggressive.
  12. Yes. Because you destroyed the outer layer by polishing the coin. If you do it like i did in the video nothing can and will happen to the coin
  13. Since i restore alot coins by PCGS and take high resolution photos before and after, it looks like that they just clean it like i did in the video. Maybe they use some special cleaner, but i found some very small scratches after restoring by pcgs very often. In 50% of the cases, restore increases the grade by at least 1 grading level. 69 to 70 is "usually" not possible. After doing the salt-alumium bath (ms69) and sending them back to pcgs again, i usually get MS70. Very often i get PR instead of MS after using the trick. Edit: Actually all of the coins never got red dots again after cleaning. After they are slabbed by PCGS and NGC they always keep the same quality.
  14. Why? Those were damaged coins, they will be melted anyway. But there is nothing wrong by cleaning coins?
