Not a good idea to fireball from that range.  Could easily get a flying kick to the head.  Although stood up Ryu could easily pull back to block and press top shoulder button for a throw.  Ken gets a "shoeing" for a having a bogus fighting name. ???

IMG_7701.thumb.JPG.dd06177ee2b75ac35e0bde09abd05a00.JPGThis coin was announced as a 1918 Canada Sovereign. Pictures weren't great but the date was clearly 1913 – hopes high I was ready to bid just to see the listing pulled last minute because they realised their error. 

Went to down to check in store and it turns out it is a London Mint 1913 Sovereign. As you can see, the coin has a noticeable die crack on the obverse.

This swayed them that the coin is damaged and only worth melt value and the paper markets pushing gold down also worked in my favour...

Bought these lost as scrap pre47 coins on eBay literally a few mins ago. (roughly 0.17 per gram). However I am not sure that the seller realised that the Wilhelmina coin is 72% silver (its badly damaged, but still scrap value is £7) and that the Crown is actually an Australian crown which makes it 925, melt value £10, but still saleable for more than that despite its condition. Also spotted a couple of other pre20 coins - which makes at least some of these coins worth more. So in general, even if I scrapped the whole lot I am probably going to make £10 profit...

I went and bought three Belgian gold coins.
I got the complete package Leopold I Leopold II and Albert I

May I ask what you paid for the Leopold coins? I really like these but the ones i’ve seen have pretty big premiums. 

Edit, just noticed you are in Belgium.

Today I bought a 2018 Perth BU swan plus a 1/4 gold Britannia from Sharps Pixley. As I proceeded through the payment, Sharps have a timer. I had to speed read the terms and conditions and accept before the timer ran out. Had to make sure I wasn't going to wait a while for my coin whilst they sourced it but all was fine in the small print:D

All of them have a premium but you should be able to get the Leopolds for a premium of 2,5 %  They are just bullion and should be priced as such.
Except the Albert which is a 1 year type with a mintage of 250.000

Do you know if the mintage is evenly split over the Flams and Vallon inscription? And what are these variants about position A and B?

 2  half sovereigns from Ebay this morning only for the seller to refund the monies this evening , his pathetic excuse was he didn't want Paypal holding his funds until June ;) but he is ok with Paypal holding onto my money for 7 working days . Would you give him negative feedback ?
