  1. Just curious as too how much extra people would be prepared to pay over and above for a coin with a pedigree?
  2. Kaiser Wilhelm died in 1888, there was a coin/medal produced shortly after with a milled edge, at a guess this is what it’s trying to impersonate, but the date of death would also be on it. My book lists a Hess-Divo auction 27-10-2005 lot 416 if you want to check it out.

    Munich coin show

    So the show was all set to go ahead, got a couple emails from dealers such as Künker and NGC the night before saying due to the Corona virus they weren't going to attend, then i text @NRP to see what he was doing, mentioned Künker and NGC to him and as far as he was aware (at that time) it was still ongoing, 11:30pm last night Neil was informed it was cancelled. This should have really been done last week to save all these people the expense, so now I'll head out and grab a few beers with Neil, its the least I can do 😁
  5. As we're adding pictures mostly of coins, i thought i'd open one just about scenery, where you live or of whatever. I took this one on my visit home a few weeks back, the River Tay in Dundee with the rail bridge

    As this is in PICTURES section it’s a PICTURE, just like the rest that have been uploaded, maybe you do need to head to specsavers to see all those other “what type of coin” pictures that have been uploaded in this part of the forum.

    That’s called stacking where you take multiples of the same picture at the same settings then stack them in Lightroom or starry landscape stacked and theoretically it brings out better detail. Images should be taken in RAW format. I took my picture with the Sony DSC RX10 M3, it’s has a 600mm zoom lens.

    Books Section

    Thought we could maybe start a section for books, on books, good titles to have in the library etc. Anyway, just saw that Jeremy Cheeks has written something on the Queens Coin collection and wondered if anyone is adding this to their library, would make a great Christmas present https://www.tokenpublishing.com/shop/product/8006/17 Who"s running the asylum now these days, do we have any moderators?

    Munich coin show

    Ahhhh unfortunately he was trying to recoup some of the costs and was trying to get some deals done with a few dealers, so he eventually didn’t have the time, there’s always next year though.

    The only coin that has really exploded is the New gold 2oz Una and the Lion great designers release, these have been going for silly money, £27k for a release 2 months previously that cost £4k, I don’t know where people’s heads are at right now with this modern stuff
  11. azda


    Saw 2 listings for the gold one on eBay on Sunday night, they weren’t even available till Monday morning, Londoncoins was one of those, asking £7500 for it, Monday they had changed the listing and dropped the price to £6000, that’s how shit it was and the state of the modern market asking for £2000 profit
  12. I’ve been for a beer with Rob and also met NRP at the Munich coin fair several times.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Not a worst offering, more your worst nightmare https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7930931/Balaclava-clad-thugs-beat-rob-couple-travelled-190-miles-buy-Mercedes-Ebay.html
  14. I think you have to register for each auction you are going to participate in. I have the app and have used it, but each auction requires you to register, not you whole details but your intention to bid. I registered for this in Dec, but what you have to realise, registering 2hrs before the auction starts in NY and on a Sunday and it's going to get complicated straight off the bat.
  15. Asking for opinions for someone who just reads the forum and asked me to post this. My personal opinion is I don't like how it looks, the toning in the legends looks artificial, would like to hear others thoughst. REV picture to follow tomorrow, weight 28.2g

    1860 F13 without Ship Flag

    Fast forward 159 years and quality control is still not on their priority list 🥳
  17. 200 million more Americans than Brits and of those which are serious collectors, most will be millionaires, so they have the cash to splash

    MS 63 ?

    Speaking of accuracy and TPGs, these next 2 coins come from a well known dealer, both have technical grades yet both are ex mounts, I just wonder if these bigger dealers get some sort of preferential treatment, the mount marks are quite clearly visible but yet no details grades for being ex mounts. The mounts that holds the coin in place in the holder actually cover the fact these were ex mounts, only in the true view of PCGS are these visible

    Just did a little editing of the above photo on googles pixlr. I took the original at about 7:45am this morning and it was getting light

    Got a new camera, has a few bells and whistles on it, but it's no point and shoot and was getting pretty frustrated with the results that have been produced so far, until this morning. Youtube guides are quite helpful, but if you buy a bridge camera I suggest a little photography course if you have the time.
  21. list a coin from a well know collection, add half a grade here and there and then double the purchase price and wait for someone to grab the bait
