  1. Thats the difference between a collector and investor, where the investor is always looking for the return, the collector says it doesn't matter 😉
  2. Personally I think there are a certain number of people cashing in on grading hype because they are authorized agents of NGC or PCGS and have a vested interest in getting people sucked into the slabbing.

    1953 VIP Proof set

    At a guess, the penny has been swapped out from the original set
  4. Kaiser Wilhelm died in 1888, there was a coin/medal produced shortly after with a milled edge, at a guess this is what it’s trying to impersonate, but the date of death would also be on it. My book lists a Hess-Divo auction 27-10-2005 lot 416 if you want to check it out.

    As this is in PICTURES section it’s a PICTURE, just like the rest that have been uploaded, maybe you do need to head to specsavers to see all those other “what type of coin” pictures that have been uploaded in this part of the forum.

    That’s called stacking where you take multiples of the same picture at the same settings then stack them in Lightroom or starry landscape stacked and theoretically it brings out better detail. Images should be taken in RAW format. I took my picture with the Sony DSC RX10 M3, it’s has a 600mm zoom lens.

    Munich coin show

    Ahhhh unfortunately he was trying to recoup some of the costs and was trying to get some deals done with a few dealers, so he eventually didn’t have the time, there’s always next year though.

    Munich coin show

    So the show was all set to go ahead, got a couple emails from dealers such as Künker and NGC the night before saying due to the Corona virus they weren't going to attend, then i text @NRP to see what he was doing, mentioned Künker and NGC to him and as far as he was aware (at that time) it was still ongoing, 11:30pm last night Neil was informed it was cancelled. This should have really been done last week to save all these people the expense, so now I'll head out and grab a few beers with Neil, its the least I can do 😁

    The only coin that has really exploded is the New gold 2oz Una and the Lion great designers release, these have been going for silly money, £27k for a release 2 months previously that cost £4k, I don’t know where people’s heads are at right now with this modern stuff

    Saw 2 listings for the gold one on eBay on Sunday night, they weren’t even available till Monday morning, Londoncoins was one of those, asking £7500 for it, Monday they had changed the listing and dropped the price to £6000, that’s how shit it was and the state of the modern market asking for £2000 profit
  12. I’ve been for a beer with Rob and also met NRP at the Munich coin fair several times.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Not a worst offering, more your worst nightmare https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7930931/Balaclava-clad-thugs-beat-rob-couple-travelled-190-miles-buy-Mercedes-Ebay.html
  14. I think you have to register for each auction you are going to participate in. I have the app and have used it, but each auction requires you to register, not you whole details but your intention to bid. I registered for this in Dec, but what you have to realise, registering 2hrs before the auction starts in NY and on a Sunday and it's going to get complicated straight off the bat.
  15. Asking for opinions for someone who just reads the forum and asked me to post this. My personal opinion is I don't like how it looks, the toning in the legends looks artificial, would like to hear others thoughst. REV picture to follow tomorrow, weight 28.2g
