    George V 1915-1919 Half-crowns for sale

    Can I have some , I would like one of each year please ?
  2. did not get a single coin , all went above my set limits
  3. I will open a new post to get it out of here , I,m sure people have had enough of my bitching
  4. How do you want it short and quick or the full monty ?
  5. That's not good to hear , there are some items I want that go on sale tomorrow
  6. 3rd bedroom = server room , the one server keeps the room at just the right temperature for my coins
  7. Since my coins visit to CGS , it has been toning very well, and its locked in a safe in the dark (but nice and warm as its the server room) @Sword My coin has the same toning as the top part of yours, was it all that that to start with ?
  8. The chances of three graders getting laid on the same night , that would explain why CGS grades were so strict
  9. I think with CGS , a good grade depended on what day it was graded, and if the grader got laid the night before....
  10. It was rejected because of toning (Reject: Re-Toned) which I think they mean was cleaned at some time. It did come back with two extra scratches which I was taking them to court about, but they closed the company just before court case date

    Highest Rated CGS Coin

    Was this the highest grade given to a coin by CGS ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2001-MAUNDY-SILVER-PROOF-FOUR-PENCE-SLABBED-CGS-99-/181800778247?hash=item2a542bba07:g:PCIAAOxywh1TAiK4

    CGS "membership" Fee

    Does anyone know the names of any of the coin graders at CGS - LCGS (looks like they have not changed) As management at LCGS refuse to reply to any emails, I thought I would try to talk to a grader

    silver dipping

    Peter , would only dipping part of the coin make the coin look strange ?

    silver dipping

    I thought a DIPPED coin would not have Full Lustre, as the lustre would be removed during the dipping Just my thoughts... Looking on Ebay at Victorian silver, it seems that most are dipped
  19. now that's what you call a CASE....

    CGS "membership" Fee

    Could that be due to the email thanking them for the pictures of my coin (with London coins displayed)
