    I hate it too, but if you cart it about in your pocket with the rest of your change for about a year you can take the shine off it and make it look a bit better. I'd have kept it, but then I keep everything.

    Coin robbery in Birmingham

    Bloody hell. Poor Dave.
  4. If they didn't know it was a 1* (which they clearly didn't) they had a bloody cheek asking a tenner for it!
  5. Sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant the ebay seller gb-classic-coins-uk. If you look at their list of items for sale it's a load of blast-white silver. The lighting does a fair job of masking the scratches and wear. Your photo looks good & honest.

    Advice on splitting proof sets for an album

    My preference is nice acid-free 2x2 envelopes. I've never liked flips but that's what they arrived in so I left them.

    Advice on splitting proof sets for an album

    Most people seem to think Mylar's fine but I'd never use it again for anything. Good job these were cheap!

    Advice on splitting proof sets for an album

    Personally I wouldn't. I had these stored in a 2x2 mylar flip (as delivered from the seller) and now they're considerably impaired.
  11. I've never been a fan of their photos, I think they're deliberately deceptive with the lighting.

    Trident shaft is noticeably thicker on G too.
