    Have you got one ?

    Got most but sill looking,Thanks
  3. I have found it much easier to work out freeman numbers ,varieties etc .Having the different coins in hand and comparing them was a big learning curve..I now feel confident spending money on a coin and learned a lot more studying the coin rather than just looking at a book .Its not a case of looking for something i just got familiar with freeman numbers by having low grade examples.
  4. Always better to compare one with another .I buy low grades sometimes just to compare freeman numbers etc.Thats just a standard date.
  5. Yes good comments,just a shame nothing really goimg on in manchester.
  6. Getting the stock from the pawn shop obviously helped ,especially on the jewellery.However low over heads ,not much advertising .Think using a small bar and using a mailing list would give a couple of dealers an opportunity to move stock on.Anyway sure someone will get something together
  7. Just sent a message,do you think someone will carry on an auction in the northwest rob.I ask because we dont have many other opportunities close by
  8. I used to go and bought a few banknotes and bits and pieces.Would like to send my best wishes

    Slabbed Coins

    Hi azda i must mention only about 10 k was spent with niel .Some have also been through auctions and michael gouby.I have not really bought them as an investment ,more an interest and if in twenty years time they are worth less atleast i enjoyed buying them .Sure your son is happy and thats more important than anything all the best and be lucky

    I understand peck ,collecting the pennies was just an interest and sometimes takes my mind off the negatives .Yes the money helps and i wish you well.

    Slabbed Coins

    Dont suppose the money is ever really spare peck ,however dont really have an issue in buying something i consider an assett .I worked hard to make a few quid and retired at forty.Although my health is not the best happy to buy and enjoy collecting coins.Be lucky.The point i suppose i am making is yes got the money ,but alot of the time would prefer to feel well everyday.

    Slabbed Coins

    I have recently been putting together a few pennies .These are to be put away for my grandaughter for twenty years.The main thing is i have spent about thirty thousand choosing the best grades and given me an interest and hopefully hold there value.For the cost of spending an extra few pound it gives me peace of mind,that when i am not here and she opens the safe would like to no she has a quality collection.Would like to also express my thanks to niell paisley who has helped me to put the collection together and the last ten coins just received back from cgs all graded 80/82/85 were just as he said and spot on.Buy from a reputable dealer and wont go far wrong.I buy the coin and not always the slab but a lot of the ones over £500 nice to have the best ones about knowing they are ok and give my grandaughter a few quid.

    You can have two shill bidders and make any number of excuses why the winner/winners did not pay .I have had numerous offers to buy ,down the line and all becoming a joke.

    Suppose its peoples instinct to be greedy ,however dont like anyone to be ripped off.Be interested in original post from paulus as to his thoughts .I no its no big deal and we all spend money on what we like although£490 is not realistic.Hope he gets stuck with it .Be lucky

    Sorry azda all makes sense was a bit tongue in cheek and i apologise .The coin does not finish until tomorrow and thought i had been drinking to much.Most of the ones he has sold have been over the top.Anyway thought it was nice that we agree that they dont stack up
