    NGC Slabbing

    although, i have visited their Munich offices and 4x this space im not sure would be enough to do onsite grading slabbing processing etc, maybe the place at the moment is just too small to handle Europe wide submissions

    NGC Slabbing

    yea this would make it really easy if they open up an onsite grading office in Munich, save so much time and hassle worrying about what the tax man will do with my return parcel This time round i sent only lower valued coins so the difference between coin value and grading value should be much the same regarding what is due on taxes.

    Bulk Lots at auctions

    problem is most of these have done multiple rounds of people looking to do the exact thing, so you have to rely on 5/6+ people all missing out on something.

    Bulk Lots at auctions

    i purchased about 200kg of coins a couple years back, there were a few gems in it 1 1834 G 1/2 crown and a 1923 EF 1/2 crown so yea some good gems to be found Ebay £850, will never do that to myself ever again, think i still have some of it lying about
  10. link not as official as some articles ive read but the guy knows what hes talking about, maybe wasnt too recent either
  11. nice one, on my list to get read an interesting article recently about price manipulation of 1918I graded sovereigns through all platforms, reasonable price for this though

    1947 proof florin

    on the note of conservation, they did a great job on this one though, could have just been grime though, like someone left it on display and crap just gathered on it

    1947 proof florin

    Agree with this, I find it tough when handling my specimen strikes for the 1928-1936 series and comparing it to the proof, very tricky to spot what the proof really brings to the table. Compliments to the chefs for striking of circulation coins during this period i guess? Had a CGS 88 1935 sixpence and comparing to my PF65 1936 there are just the slightest of differences to look out for, mainly jagged edges but even then. Agree with the crowns too, so many out there that are not proof and would need to be spectacular for me to consider it even if a TPG said so

    PF64 Cameo
  15. takes a bit of getting used to how the slabbing terms transfer over to unslabbed equivalents
  16. ill put some money on an AU 53/55 weak high points, good lettering sharpness(for 53/55), fields fairly undamaged, rim clean no nicks, no flan damage etc
  17. piggybacking off the back of this, what are modern dies capable of striking before they are retired? i have 50000 in my head but cant source that anywhere

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    none at all, I mostly buy coins then sell them for about half that price so that someone can have a great day

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    i purchased one of her coins and put it up for sale again, she proceed to message me and gave me abuse about it for some reason? never dealt with such a nutter on ebay

    A typical tabloid story

    "When I took it to be valued they said 'the sky is the limit' because it's the only one." this one doesnt count though shhhh
  21. i have sold a couple of these over the last year, as far as i'm concerned they ticked all my boxes for being authentic.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    😐 smaller coins are tougher to picture for this seller, one picture could be their own and the other picture from the previous seller 😋

    First hammered coins

    could be yea, toning looks like something along those lines but style doesn't fit, contemporary ones are a bit more spikey details than round but i cant tell for sure. pretty sure ifs not legit though
