    Madness' Coin Grading Training Ground

    That's fair enough. I can only talk about my experience but in the past 'bright' has meant dipped or cleaned in some way. I remember when I joined this forums I was advised as such. Michael is a very reputable dealer so I don't envisage you having any issues.

    Coin cabinet

    I agree with Rob. You would expect the out gassing to reduce over time so if the cabinet is question is made from freshly cut and dried oak I would imagine it would have more of an impact than a cabinet that's a 100 years plus old.

    Coin cabinet

    I believe the tannins in oak, as an example, turn silver black Pete.
  12. I nabbed one, thanks @Paulus!
  13. Talking about the Midland a few dealers do accept card but cash is king. If you can turn up with notes you always stand a fair better chance of agreeing on a price you both find acceptable.

    Recent Hammered Acquisitions

    Get the slab on a hard surface and one firm but not hard hammer blow to the top of the slab will usually crack it enough for you to safely remove the coin. I don't mind slabs at all but have had to remove a few that have had a spot of verd develop post slabbing.

    Martin is a good guy. I have only bought one off him so far but I was more than happy with it.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    If you click 'listing' in the text above on ebay it takes you back to the original sale so you can view it.. Try it on ebay.
  18. Sorry to hear you did not get it. I was watching a few but could not get on to bid.
  19. What did it go for in the end Rob? I struggled to watch any of the auction due to work.
  20. A keeper for my half crown collection
  21. I love the toning on the reverse Paul. I would love a 1911 proof set but other things keep catching my eye meaning funds go elsewhere!!

    Pennies High grade.

    Sorry missed it, add that to the other 2 please Pete.
