    Been waiting nearly 2 months now after submitting to them. Not the friendliest of peolpe to deal with either. I think the Pyramids took less time to build
  2. ....what isn't against eBay's policies is taking the money, no matter what.....
  3. ..... reginparto0 ..... should really state that these coins are restrikes/copies/fakes.......
  4. It does say including ....not that this was the entire collection that was stolen However I suspect that the unfortunate victim could very well have been a classic client of those companies that we all know, who prey on selling to mainly the elderly and definitely to people who don't know the value of what they are buying and who often do it furtively and with the best intentions in order to leave something of what they think is of value to the family when they've gone and generally is worth about 10 to 20% of what they paid..at best. Stick to your knitting is what I say ( can you still say that ? ..of course men knit too....phew ! I think I got away with that one...) ......don't buy what you don't understand or haven't researched....Crypto being a recent classic example of people doing this

    what did the LCA one go for ?
  11. I've followed this up with Spink as a matter of interest as it was clear to anyone yet alone a professional cataloguer that it wasnt a mule .....they did say there had been an unusual sequence of events that led to this rare cataloguing error ...that the matter had beeen resolved correctly and satisfactoraily between the buyer and the seller...pity it wasnt the other way around ie described as an F10 but actually an F9 ...lol !
  12. I take the default French view of politicians ... they are all liars, cheats, theives and adulterers ..and when they’re proved to be liars, cheats, theives abd adulterers .. they shrug their shoulders and say ... yeah, we knew that ....
  13. For me its the bogus RM handling charge that really annoys me .a totally non refundable ransom charge
  14. I remember going to his shop when it was Michael Howard Coins ....in partnership with Laurence Howard? ..who had an extremely attractive Fench wife if I recall...or that might have been a teenage fantasy ??
