    GENI - TPG

    Has anyone heard of these people or actually used them or get the point of them ? Apparantly been around for 2 years , based in France and like most French companies appear to be very provincial in their approach. As evident by the fact that they still don’t have a website in English so are really limiting their business to French speaking numismatists which must limit their global reach somewhat I would suggest. Still, the octagonal slabs look groovy.
  2. .. and here we are again .... all collectors are poor innocent lambs going to the slaughter and all dealers a nasty horrible people ... yawn
  3. grading has never been consistent over time .:. it’s still done by humans and is therefore subjective .. even professional graders can’t agree .. send the same coin to 3 different TPG’s and it wont come back with an identical grade across all three. why are the same people on this site so bitter and twisted and hung up on dealers or anyone for that matter , making a profit .. as long as you’re happy with the coin or the product and with the price who cares what the seller is making or not making...no one is forcing you to buy.
  4. I was trying to get something in with topiary .. can’t make it work... Maybe I’ll try with pruning ... nope that’s a dead end too some good ones there people ... 😂
  5. On sale for £20,250 !!.....worth £20 This is the very worst of eBay which is a tolet these days as far as coins go with these ridiculous prices , particulary the like of the Abolotion of slavery '1807' £2....which Ive seen fakes of being offered for many thousands
  6. Customs charges are like mobile phone bills.. a complete mystery to us all
  7. Overall and generally I dont think that the prices acheived were that crazy and certainly a few bargains to be had and the cheaper end .....Lot 27 the 1823 Halfcrown at £1600 hammer and Lot 62 the 1922 / 27 Penny at £1100 hammer were cheap coins I would say.
  8. Exactly ... my best one is I went out to buy a washing machine and came back with a Porsche .. they get over it .. 😁👍
  9. Just do it ... Nike ! Its like buying a house , or that boat , or that car u always wanted... if you sit down and analyse it you will never get it .. Just do it .. take the flak from the wife then it passes .. like the quote above .. don’t ask permission , ask forgiveness
  10. I’d be happy with the 37 penny on its own without chasing the set .. Sov Rareties had the sixpence a while ago at £55k
  11. Although the 1808 penny is unique , the 1937 is an iconic piece whereas the 1808 is not .. so it will have more global appeal therefore I think the 37 will do much better. is anyone buying anything from the collection .. I rather like the Richard 3 Angel
